Stacking Amex Offers at Hilton
Last week I analyzed two different Amex Offers and theorized that they could be combined to amount to a ~37% discount on stays of $300 at Hilton hotels. Why is this valuable? Well, I suspect many of you are newly minted Diamonds who would love to take advantage of that status. Plus Hilton has an amazing footprint and in many cities their hotels have among the best locations.
As a reminder, here are the Amex offers I am talking about:
Offer 1: Get a one-time $60 statement credit by using your connected Card to spend $300+ on room rate and room charges, when you pay for your stay with Hilton Hotels & Resorts from 1/6/16 to 4/11/16.
Offer 2: Get a one-time $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $250 or more on all room charges, including room rate, when you pay for your reservation directly with an eligible merchant by 3/31/2016. See terms for exclusions.
The Hilton specific offer is widely available by tweeting #AmexHilton or by loading it on the American Express website, however the hotel offer is targeted, although many people seemed to get some version of it.
This morning I received an email from a reader who was able to confirm that both offers did indeed stack. In fact, he was able to split his hotel bill and get both credits on two different cards. Here is a screenshot showing the two credits stacking on the same card:
This reader actually stayed at the hotel, so we don’t yet know if gift cards would work to trigger the credits. I still suspect they will, but I haven’t heard any data points. If someone has successfully purchased gift cards and received the credit, then feel free to leave a comment. If I hear any data points myself I’ll leave a comment in this post as well to keep everyone up to date.
The stacking of Amex Offers can be powerful as is seen in this example. Our reader saved 25% off of his Hawaiian vacation, but you could theoretically get up to 37% off if the charge is exactly $300. Either way, it is always a good idea to look for offers that compliment each other to see if you can save even more! I love it when a deal works out as planned.
