American Express has been very generous with the number off Hilton offers it has been publishing since the start of the year and the procession of offers continued earlier today when two new Amex Hilton offers started appearing in targeted cardholder accounts.

Thoughts

$50 back on $300 of spending is a discount of approximately 17% but, realistically, it’s likely to be a little lower unless you’re lucky enough to keep your spending as close to $300 as possible (without going under).

If you were already planning a trip then this is obviously a very nice discount to get and it may be enough to make you change any flexible reservations you may already have. If you weren’t already looking to book a stay than this isn’t an offer that should see you making new plans.

Thoughts

I’m a fan of Hampton properties (I have a Hampton booked for later this month) so it’s always good to see an Amex offer that could save a guest up to 20% on an upcoming stay.

As with most Amex offers, be aware that this is only valid for bookings made at properties in the US and US territories so, even if you were feeling adventurous and planning to head abroad, this rebate would not be triggered elsewhere.

Don’t Rush To Load The Deals

American Express often targets multiple cards belonging to the same person for these offers but that can cause an issue.

As soon as an offer is loaded to one card it will disappear from all the other cards so, as the first card on which you see these offers may not be the best one to load them too, you should take your time deciding what the best course of action is.

Ideally, you’ll see both of these offers targeted to a Hilton co-branded card (like the Hilton Honors Surpass card which earns 12 Honors points/dollar on Hilton spending) but, failing that, you should be looking to load it to a good travel card like the Amex Green card. which will earn 3 Membership Rewards points per dollar for all travel spending.

Personally I’ve been targeted on my Platinum Card, Amex EveryDay Card and Blue Business Plus Card so, as the latter is the only card with which I’ll earn more than 1 point/dollar on Hilton spending, that’s the card to which I loaded the offers.

Bottom Line

While not exactly amazing, these offers still represent very good value if you were already planning a trip and, more importantly, they’re a good way to recoup part of whatever annual fees you may have paid for your cards.

There’s no penalty for loading the offers and then not using them so, even if you have no immediate plans to stay at a Hilton property, I suggest you load these offers to your card(s) just in case your plans change.
