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, Hampton, Curio and Conrad hotels before 31st December. (Hilton Paris Opera is pictured below and reviewed here. The Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol which I reviewed earlier this week is also on.)
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 I suspect you will.
Remember that you still have 11 days to benefit from Hilton’s excellent ‘2500 Miles & More miles on every stay’ promo (click) as well as the current global ‘double or triple points’ offer which runs until 3rd January.
