New offers for Hampton & Hilton Garden Inn (4K points / $40 back on $175)

There are a couple of new Amex Offers out today for Hampton by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn good for either 4,000 Membership Rewards points or $40 back (depending on your offer) when you spend $175 or more. That’s a decent return on spend, and it’s even showing up on Hilton cards for some people, which makes it an even better deal as you may earn 7-14 points Hilton points per dollar on top of the statement credit depending on which card you’ve synced with the offer.

The Offer

  • There’s a new targeted Amex Offer out: Spend $175+ at Hampton by Hilton or Hilton Garden Inn and get 4,000 Membership Rewards points or $40 back (see your offer for details

Key Terms

  • Expires 1/31/19
  • Only valid at hotels in the US & US Territories
  • Not valid on any kind of advance purchase rates
  • See your offer for full terms

Quick Thoughts

Again, this is a decent little offer for some money back on a Hampton Inn or Hilton Garden Inn stay. I love to see offers like these around the holidays, when many of us will drive to see family and may need a hotel overnight on the way there or back. The low spend threshold makes this one pretty easy to hit with just one or two paid nights, and my experience in the past has always been that cumulative spend triggers the offers (i.e. if you spend $175 or more over 2 separate stays, that usually triggers the offer).

Keep in mind that this is only valid in the US and US territories and it excludes prepaid rates. I rarely book a prepaid rate since the savings don’t outweigh the flexibility of changing plans if someone gets sick, you want to jet off to London on 8hrs notice, etc.

I haven’t had any luck syncing an offer to multiple cards lately, but you should at the very least be able to sync one card with the Membership Rewards version and one card with the statement credit version (assuming you were targeted on both types of cards).

If you were targeted on one of the Hilton cards, you can also stack a good earn rate from your card. As a reminder, these are the current earn rates for Hilton hotel spend on the various Hilton cards (see the “brand” earning in the table below):
