Hilton has launched a new American Express promotion. This may be found on some, all or none of your Amex cards, under the ‘Offer’ tab on your online statement page.
There are a few variants, looking at reader comments yesterday. My version is ‘get 4,000 Membership Rewards points for spending £350 by 31st August’.
The £350 must be spent at selected European hotels only. Because of the 3% foreign exchange fee charged by American Express, the offer is less attractive if used outside the UK if you could otherwise pay on a 0% FX fees card.
Whilst the rules do not specify this, Hilton offers have historically triggered on cumulative spend. It does not all need to be done in one transaction.
PS. I also have ‘£50 back on a £500 Bicester Village spend’ on my Platinum card which would double up with their generous deals with various airlines and hotel groups, including Avios and Virgin Flying Club. This HfP article looks at earning miles and points at Bicester Village.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (September 2021)
There are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses.
Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card? It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
The Platinum Card comes with a limited time bonus of 60,000 Amex points (converts to 120,000 Hilton Honors points) until 2nd November 2021.
Did you know that the Virgin Atlantic credit cards are a great way of earning Hilton Honors points? Two Virgin Points can be converted into three Hilton Honors points. The Virgin Atlantic cards are the only Visa or Mastercard products in the UK which can indirectly earn Hilton Honors points. You can apply here.
You can also earn Hilton Honors points indirectly via American Express Gold, the American Express Rewards Credit Card and – for small business owners – American Express Business Gold and Business Platinum.
