Awesome AmEx Offer – 1 Free Hilton Wknd Night for 1K in Spend – Minor Exclusions!

by Adam

I received the email below from American Express last night, offering a free weekend night certificate at most Hilton properties worldwide. There are actually very few properties excluded.  In order to earn the certificate, I need to spend $1K on my Hilton HHonors AmEx card by 12/15/16.  Granted this is a no annual fee card that normally sits in my drawer (besides small biz Saturday), but I’ll be breaking it out for this promotion.


It was a one-click link and I was registered. Unfortunately, authorized users on the same account do not also earn a free night.

I have that card and didn’t get the offer… I’ve decided to suspend spend on the card as I focus on my chase cards.

My spouse received the email, but I didn’t. She never uses her card, I use mine occasionally. In practical terms, for our situation one weekend night isn’t worth a lot. But, we will go ahead and shift $1K over to the card just to get the bonus.

Bummer. I have spent a grand total of $45 on the card in the last year. Not invited.
