American Express seems to be trialling exclusive cashback deals for Facebook users.
Unfortunately, we are about to ruin their experiment by publicising the deal here and generating a few thousand sign-ups.
This is the deal:
You need to register for both deals at the same page which is here.
Note that there is a list of participating hotels for the Hilton deal which you should check if you are making a special stay.
Who can register?
It isn’t clear. The offer is being promoted on Facebook so in theory it is not targetted.
However, when I tried to register my MBNA American Express card, I was told ‘sorry, this offer is by invitation only’. I then tried to register my British Airways American Express card and my registration was accepted.
I recommend you give it a go with whatever cards you have to hand and see if one sticks.
The offer is limited to the first 15,000 Amex cards to be registered.
The reason the offers are being promoted together is that there is a linked competition. Everyone who triggers both sets of cashback will be entered into a free draw. Five winners will receive a one or two night break at the Hilton Park Lane in London (photo above) and another five winners will win a weekend Avis rental.
The registration page is here.
