Save up to 20% at Hilton Resorts with new Amex Offer (targeted)


There’s a new, targeted Amex Offer that can save you up to 20% back on stays when you spend at least $1000 at Hilton Resort properties in the US, Mexico, Canada, Caribbean, Belize, Peru, Honduras, & French Polynesia. This can be used at one of Hilton’s more sought-after properties in North America: Zemi Beach House.

Unfortunately, another very desirable property, Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, is excluded from the list of eligible properties.

Quick Thoughts

If you were planning a paid stay at a resort, or spending $1K once you’re there, this targeted Amex Offer is a good way to save up to 20% on your cost. It’s valid at a seemingly random selection of destinations that includes Hilton Resorts all the way from Moorea to Anguilla.

For the foreign properties, it’s important to ensure that your bill will come to $1000 or more by the time you stay, as advance purchase rates aren’t included in the offer. If your total is only marginally above $1000 when converted to USD today, exchange rate fluctuations between now and your stay could result in it dropping below $1k when you actually stay. While a better currency conversion is beneficial in that it lowers your bill, if it means missing out on the $200 statement credit…then it’s not so good.

OK, so what if you have this offer on your Aspire card and have a brief $1,000 resort stay coming up for which you will automatically receive your semi-annual $200 Aspire card resort credit? Does that bring your total spend on this offer down to $800, thus negating the AMEX offer? If so, that would be a heckuva way to say thanks for paying a $550 annual fee for this card

The credit comes some days after the charge post. And it is the charge that triggers the Amex Offer. So you should be alright.

(As for Amex doing clawbacks on chargebacks, my go-to authority is Matt at Miles Earn and Burn. Google his blog and terms like “Amex” and “correlate.” Basically, his experience is that when it comes to clawbacks, Amex’s IT is only matching exact refunds with exact purchases. So I do not see that the $200 Aspire resort credit would somehow make Amex “understand” that you had really only charged–taking into account the post hoc Amex Offer–a number between $800 and $999. Further evidence along these lines is how Amex lets us include reimbursed fees in the count of spend that triggers SUBs, AU and employee card offers, and upgrade offers.)
