American Express has launched a new cashback deal with Hilton, covering selected European hotels.

If you are targetted, you will see the deal on the ‘Offers’ page of one or more of your Amex cards on the app or website. Don’t waste your time checking your Marriott Bonvoy Amex however ….

You will receive £50 cashback when you spend £200 on your card with Hilton by 31st May.

£50 American Express and Hilton cashback offer launched

The rules confirm that cumulative spend counts – you don’t need to do £200 in one transaction.

There are a huge number of UK hotels listed along with a large number in Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Existing bookings are fine as long as they are not already pre-paid. There is no need to rebook anything.

This offer stacks with the current Hilton promotion

Don’t forget to register for Hilton’s new promotion if you are planning a stay.

Hilton’s Spring offer is called ‘Double Up & Explore’.  You can register here.  Our full article on the current Hilton promotion is here. It runs until 30th April.

It is a two part offer, which is interesting.

£50 American Express and Hilton cashback

You will earn double base points on all stays.

You will earn an additional 1,000 bonus Hilton Honors points for every different brand you stay with. This kicks in from your first stay.

We value 1,000 Hilton Honors points at £3.33 so – when you factor in double base points, any elite status bonus and the American Express cashback – this is attractive for cheap, short midweek stays.

You need to register for the promotion in advance of your stay via the Hilton website here.  Existing bookings count and all Hilton Honors hotels are taking part. Our full review of Hilton Honors is here.

The Hilton booking page is here.

    Sorry for what could be a naive question, but by cumulative can I redeem if I use at 2 X £100 hotels in different locations if both listed? Ie I’m planning on Newcastle then York. It doesn’t have to be the same property?

  • Dan says:

    If we choose advance purchase, will this credit still be valid?
