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 a new targeted Amex Offer for $35 back when you spend $175+ at Hampton by Hilton or Hilton Garden Inn properties. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through January 31, 2018. The promotion is only valid for stays at U.S. properties, and isn’t valid at any Hilton family brands other than Hampton by Hilton or Hilton Garden Inn. You need to book directly with Hilton to take advantage of this, and what matters is that you’re billed during the promotion period.
Do keep in mind that this promotion is targeted, though Ford and I each see the offer on one of our accounts (I see it on The Platinum Card® from American Express, while Ford sees it on The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN).
Given the relationship between American Express and Hilton, we’ve seen quite a few Amex Offers for stays at Hilton-family properties. For example, at the moment there are also a targeted Amex Offer for stays at Hilton hotels (rather than one of their other brands), for a $50 statement credit on a $250+ Hilton stay.
There’s also an Amex Offer for DoubleTree, for a $40 statement credit on a $200+ DoubleTree stay.
Keep in mind that if you’re able to register this offer for multiple cards, you can always ask them to split payment methods at check-out. In other words, if you have a $350+ Hampton or Hilton Garden Inn stay, you could potentially take advantage of this offer on multiple cards.
You can stack the Amex Offer with all the other great promotions that Hilton is running. This includes double points on all stays, 5,000 bonus points after two stays paid with an Amex, 500 bonus points for booking through the Hilton app, and 500 bonus points for booking with a Hilton Amex card.
