News in brief:

Hilton ‘£50 back on £250 spend’ cashback deal

A new Hilton cashback offer has appeared on a lot of American Express accounts.  To see if you are targetted, visit the Amex website and take a look under the ‘Offers’ tab on the online statement page for each of your cards.

You will receive £50 cashback when you spend £250 or more at selected UK and European Hilton, Doubletree, Waldorf-Astoria, Curio and Conrad hotels before 11th June.  (Hilton Paris Opera is pictured below.)

Not all hotels are participating.  Make sure that you check the list of hotels on the Amex website before booking – it is only UK and European hotels, and not all of them.  In theory you also need to book ‘pay at checkout’ rates to get this deal.  In reality, pre-paid rates will probably also trigger it.

In the past, these offers have been triggered by cumulative spend.  There is no mention of this – so you are not guaranteed to receive it if the £250 is not hit in one transaction – but it is likely to work.

Hilton has a week-long flash sale starting on Tuesday so you may want to save your bookings until then.  We will bring new more details next week.

  1. Cate ⛱️ says:

    OT as bits, if you were thinking of booking the new Tianjin A/L XIY-LGW route it’s now going to Heathrow.

  2. They don’t accept requests any longer, luck of the draw unfortunately.

  3. Yes, as long as it is before the cut-off date stated in June.

  4. Not sure if anybody is still answering on this topic – if i make a reservation for hilton on booking.com – given it says it is based on amount settled at checkout – will the promotion still apply? Cheapest rate on hilton.com less 50 GBP discount is still more expensive than booking.com. Thank you in advance
