Thoughts

I value 4,000 Membership Rewards points at $60 so this is a pretty good effective rebate that Amex is offering considering $250 of spending will trigger the offer.

If you can keep your spend as close to $250 as possible (without spending less) this offer is offering a rebate of ~24%…and that’s well worth having.

Ideally, you’ll have this offer targeted to a Membership Rewards card on which you’ll earn more than 1 point/dollar for hotel spending (like the Amex Green Card which earns 3 points/dollar for all travel spending) so be careful not to load the offer on to the first card on which you see it as that may not be the best card with which to book a Hilton stay).

Offer 2 – Get $60 At Select Waldorf Astoria & Conrad Properties

Headline Details

Get a one-time $60 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $350+ on room rate and room charges when you pay for your stay at Waldorf Astoria & Conrad properties from 2/3/20 to 5/31/20.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.
  • Reservations for Waldorf Astoria™ Hotels & Resorts must be made online at waldorfastoria.com, via the Hilton Honors App or by calling 1-800-925-3673.
  • Reservations for Conrad Hotels & Resorts™ must be made online at conradhotels.com, via the Hilton Honors App or by calling 1-800-266-7237.
  • Offer only valid at Waldorf Astoria™ Hotels & Resorts and Conrad Hotels in the US & US Territories.
  • Offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.
  • Excludes gift card purchases.
  • Offer only valid on room rate and room charges.
  • Offer not valid for lodging stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date.
  • Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Amex offer if you’ve been targeted for it.

Thoughts

If you can keep your spending as close to $350 as possible (I appreciate that this may be challenging at a number of Waldorf and Conrad properties) then this Amex offer could net you a discount of up to 17%.

That’s not exactly ‘fantastic” but it’s not bad considering you haven’t had to do anything except for loading the offer on to one of your targeted Amex cards 🙂

As with the previous Amex offer discussed in this post, be careful which card you load this offer too. Ideally, you’ll see this offer on a Hilton co-branded card (like the Hilton Honors Surpass card which earns 12 Honors points/dollar on Hilton spending) but, failing that, here’s hoping you find it targeted to a good travel card like the Amex Green card.

Bottom Line

There are both offers that should be easy to use and which will earn good rebates (in their own different ways). Make sure you read the terms and conditions of both offers very carefully (don’t forget that only properties in the US and US territories will trigger the bonuses), make sure that you don’t book any rates that are specifically excluded (e.g advance purchase rates) and make sure you load these offers on to cards that will rewards you most.
