Hilton / Amex ‘£50 cashback on £250 booking’ offer is back

American Express and Hilton Hotels have brought back their generous ‘£50 cashback for spending £250’ promotion.

It is restricted to the first 15,000 American Express cardholders to register their card via this website.  This offer should work with any UK Amex card, whether issued by MBNA, Lloyds or directly from Amex.

Hilton Diamond 2

The rules are relatively simple:

Valid for stays until 30th September

Minimum spend of £250 in one transaction

Valid at Hilton, Waldorf-Astoria and Doubletree properties (except Doubletree Liverpool)

NOT valid at Hampton properties

Valid only at UK hotels

The site states that you need to book directly at hilton.co.uk.  For advanced purchase stays this is correct.  However, if you are booking a ‘pay at check-out’ rate then I doubt it makes the slightest difference whether you book via the Hilton website or hotels.com etc.  Amex will pay the bonus regardless as long as it sees the relevant Hilton reference on your card statement.

This offer is hugely convenient for me because we will be spending £500 at a UK Hilton property this weekend.  I will be splitting that bill across two cards.

    OT; there’s also a card offer of a £10 statement credit for a purchase (NO minimum spend) at the Sunglass Hut. Now I know they won’t sell any Sunglasses near this figure but perhaps they have some accessories which could essentially be free.

    I can’t find where it states that this needs to be in one transaction but I remember reading it before – any idea if this has changed?

    Extract from terms:
    C. Qualifying Spend
    Only valid transactions on your Saved Card during the Offer period are considered qualifying spend for the purposes of the Offer. Transactions that are subsequently cancelled or refunded will not count towards your qualifying spend for the purposes of the Offer.

    Transactions on a supplementary card tied to the Saved Card account or on any other American Express card you hold will not count towards your qualifying spend. However, you may save the Offer separately to one of those cards.

    The following transactions are not considered qualifying spend for the purposes of the Offer:

    (i). transactions processed manually or using a paper based process (for example, transactions processed using a credit card imprinter);

    (ii). transactions not made directly with the relevant merchant or where the merchant uses a merchant aggregator, electronic wallet or a third party (such as PayPal, iZettle or Square);

    (iii). returned items; and

    (iv). transactions which are subsequently cancelled or refunded.
