I’m on record as having said that American Express has recently become my favorite card issuer and one of the big reasons for this is that I seem to be getting targeted for more and more tempting credit card deals and more and more highly lucrative Amex offers that make life noticeably cheaper.

While it’s often the high-ticket Amex offers that get all the attention (like the offers for Air France, Air Canada, and ANA) I find that it’s the smaller deals that end up making the most difference to me as, when you add them all up, the savings often end up being quite substantial.

Right now there are at least five good Hilton Amex offers available to targeted cardholders and with the holiday season rapidly approaching (a time when a lot of people take trips) and four of the five deals expiring at the end of the year, I thought I’d remind readers of what these offers look like.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.
  • Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card.

  • Reservations for Conrad Hotels & Resorts must be made online at conradhotels.com, via the Hilton Honors App or by calling 1-800-266-7237. Excludes all other Hilton brandsThoughts

Thoughts

Spending $350 when staying at a Waldorf Astoria or a Conrad property shouldn’t be too difficult (they’re not exactly the cheapest brands in the Hilton portfolio!) but just be aware that this offer is only valid of specific properties in specific countries so don’t make any bookings before you peruse the list of participating locations.

At best there’s a 20% discount available here for anyone who manages to spend almost exactly $350 without going under but, realistically, this should just be viewed as a very nice rebate on a stay as most people will probably spend considerably more than $350 when booking with these brands.


Offer 2 – Get $45 Back At Doubletree Properties

Headline Details

Get a one-time $45 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $225 on room rate & room charges when you pay for your stay with DoubleTree by Hilton from 11/7/19 to 12/31/19.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.
  • Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card.
  • Offer valid only at DoubleTree by Hilton™ properties in the US & US Territories.
  • Reservations must be made online at doubletree.com, via the Hilton Honors App or by calling 1-800-445-8667.
  • 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.

Thoughts

It’s a shame that this offer is only valid for Doubletree properties in the US & US Territories but at least the rebate is a good one and the spending required to trigger the rebate isn’t exactly onerous.

As with the Waldorf/Conrad offer, the maximum rebate available here is 20% but, with Doubletree pricing being what it is, it should be a lot easier to max out this offer without going too far over the spend requirement if you don’t want to.


Offer 3 – Get $50 Back At Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites & Home2

Headline Details

Get a one-time $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $250 + on room rate and room charges, when you pay for your stay at Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites or Home2 by 12/31/19.

  • 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.

Thoughts

Once again the offer is limited to properties in the US & US Territories and once again the maximum percentage rebate on offer is 20% (there seems to be a theme here!) but it’s still good to see some of Hilton’s extended-stay properties appearing within the Amex offers.

This is an offer I’ve already made the most of thanks to a layover at Miami airport so I can confirm that a combination of room rate and all charges made to the room (drinks, dining etc…) contribute towards the spending required to trigger the offer.


Offer 4 – Get $30 Back At Hampton & Hilton Garden Inn

Headline Details

Get a one-time $30 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $175+ on room rate and room charges, when you pay for your stay with Hampton by Hilton & Hilton Garden Inn by 12/31/2019.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible.

  • Offer only valid at Hampton by Hilton™ and Hilton Garden Inn® 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.

Thoughts

I’m a big fan of Hampton properties because I’ve never had a bad experience with any of my Hampton stays. The properties may be pretty basic but breakfast comes included, the rooms are generally a reasonable size and quite a few of the properties are pretty well located.

A $30 rebate isn’t exactly going to make a huge difference for most people but as I may need to vacate my home for a night while some work is being done in early December this may well be an offer that I trigger in the next few weeks.

Headline Details

  • 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.

Hilton London Canary Wharf

Thoughts

There’s good and bad news in the terms and conditions of this offer.

The good news is that it’s nice to have another offer that isn’t restricted to the US and it’s good news that all Hilton properties in the UK (of which there are quite a few) are participating.

It’s less good news that the offer is only available for stays made between 20 November 2019 and 31 January 2020 (I suspect that most people traveling to the UK between those dates will already have their accommodation booked) and it’s a shame that advance purchase rates are excluded (these often offer some of the best deals in the UK).

Still, if you can make this offer work for you then a $50 rebate on $250 of spending isn’t to be ignored and it may just pay for a nice lunch for two at some point in your trip.


Bottom Line

None of these offers are “amazing” but all have the potential to be very useful for anyone planning to book one or more Hilton stays in the next month (two months if visiting the UK).

If you’ve been targeted for these offers make sure you don’t add them to the first Amex card you check as there’s more than just a few rebates available here – there are points available too.

Ideally, you’ll have these offered targeted on one of your Amex Hilton co-branded cards (I have two of these offers added to my Hilton Honors Surpass Card) which would allow you to earn up to 14 Hilton Honors Points per dollar (for the Aspire Card) on top of whatever earnings you get from booking with Hilton.

If you don’t have a co-branded Hilton Amex card your aim should be to maximize your Membership Rewards earnings on top of whatever rebate you’re targeting and that’s where cards like the Blue Business Plus card (2x points on all spending up to $50,000 per year) and the revamped American Express Green Card (3x points on hotels, flights, transit, taxis, and ridesharing services – reviewed here) may be very useful.
