Improved £75 Hilton hotel cashback deal launched with American Express

This week a new Hilton cashback offer appeared on a lot of American Express accounts.  The targetted offer was for £50 cashback on a spend of £250+ and we covered it a couple of days ago.

If you did not get the original offer, it is worth taking another look at your online statement page.  There is now a second (better!) version of this offer with an increased cashback of £75 for the same £250+ spend.

Hilton American Express cashback offer

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.  If you were targetted for the £50 cashback you are unlikely to have this new one, although it is worth checking all your Amex cards.

The cashback offer is valid at selected UK and European Hilton, DoubleTree, Waldorf Astoria, Curio and Conrad hotels before 30th April.  (Hilton Paris Opera is pictured below and is included.)

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 as they are processed by the hotel in the same way as a ‘pay at checkout’ rate.

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 very likely to work.

This offer will work alongside the current ‘2,000 bonus points per stay’ promotionregister here and read more about it here – which means you could do nicely.  I have already moved a stay on Monday from Radisson to Hilton in order to take advantage …..

Hilton is also offering a status match at the moment if you are thinking of moving stays across – learn more here.
