Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

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.

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.

    I got it on my Amex Gold last time and redeemed it but this time it’s popped up on my BAPP. Amex seems to send most offers to the Gold Card, I have about 60 on there at the moment versus a dozen on the BAPP. Obviously there are some that I assume BA would block (Etihad, Thai etc.) but I wonder why Amex seems so keen to push the spend to Gold.

    • iEimis says:

      Simple really,

      Any avios they issue is something they will have to pay BA for.

  • buchanan101 says:

    Nothing in Portugal… and I have a Curio and a Tapestry hotel booked there in May…

  • Andrew J says:

    Why not check your Amex offers regularly?

  • sam says:

    Just confirmation.. Can this offer be redeemed in any HILTON hotel evening if it’s not on the PDF list?

    • Ian says:

      Probably not

    • John says:

      Definitely not

    • TGLoyalty says:

      It must be on the list. Otherwise there would be no point in the eligible properties list …

    • Richard says:

      Where can I find the PDF list of participating Hilton hotels? I have received an email from Amex saying one of my cards has been sent this offer but it isn’t showing on my offers list yet?

      • Rob says:

        Possible it hit the 50k registrations cap after our article and it has been pulled.

  • Garyo76 says:

    Does payment have to be made at hotel reception or does online prepayment of room count?

  • His Holyness says:

    More than 10 cards and not one offer for us.

  • Carl says:

    Will Hilton ever offer a UK credit card, there US offering look very interesting.

    • Ian says:

      Many of us still use the Barclaycard Hilton card.

      But this has been closed to new people for a few years.

      Maybe until this goes, the answer is no.

      Would be nice to have one however. Surprised that nothing has happened

    Found offer on my BAPP card this morning whilst having breakfast at the Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik. Then realised hotel not on list. Was at IC Lisbon last weekend and have IHG offer too. As mentioned locations/countries very limited. Such a pity.
    Can recommend both hotels though. Moet served in the lounge in Lisbon.
