For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards, where different cards are eligible for different savings and bonus offers. In many cases the offers can be huge, and more than offset the annual fee on a card.
To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for. These offers come in different forms, including discounts and even in some cases bonus points.
At the moment there’s an especially generous stackable Amex Offers promotion for Hilton stays.
A new targeted Amex Offer has been loaded that can save you money at Hilton. Through this Amex Offer, you can get a $50 statement credit when you spend $250+ at a Hilton property in the US or US territories by October 30, 2017.
But what makes this promotion so great is that it seems to be stackable with another Amex Offers promotion that has been around for a while. Many accounts also have an offer for 3,500 bonus Amex Membership Rewards points after spending $300+ at a Hilton property in the US or US territories by September 30, 2017.
Registration for both promotions is limited, so you’ll want to register sooner rather than later.
Different accounts have different Amex Offers, but between my accounts and Ford’s accounts, five cards have both of these offers. We have the offer on The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN, and the Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express, among others.
To crunch the numbers, if you do have both offers, for a $300 Hilton purchase you’d receive $50 back and 3,500 Amex points (which I value at ~1.7 cents each, or ~$60). That means you’d be getting $110 of value on $300 of Hilton spend.
Keep in mind that this is in addition to the normal points earning you’ll get through Hilton and your credit card. Hilton is offering double points through the end of 2017, meaning you’d end up earning 25 Hilton points per dollar spent (or 27.5 as a Gold member, or 30 as a Diamond member), not factoring in credit card spend.
The way I see it, this is like getting more than 50% off a Hilton stay. Also keep in mind that if you’re able to add the offer to multiple cards and you have a $600+ hotel stay, you can use multiple credit cards at check-out.
Were you targeted for this Hilton offer, and if so, do you plan on taking advantage of it?
