Details On The Hilton Flash Sale
The deal includes select Hilton brand properties in the region including many standout properties including the Conrad in Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, and Hong Kong. You must be a Hilton Honors member (all you have to do is sign up for free at checkout) to get the full 50% off. Otherwise, you’d get 40% off.
From the details of the promotion:
Rates are valid for single/double occupancy and are exclusive of all taxes, incidental charges, gratuities, and resort fees where applicable. Discount is 40% off Flexible Rate (BAR) or Breakfast Included Rate (B&B) across all participating properties. Hilton Honors members will receive an additional 10% discount. Hilton Honors Membership is required to book the Hilton Honors Members rate.
Stack The Offer
While not the most lucrative we’ve ever seen, Rakuten’s shopping portal is currently offering 2.5% cashback on Hilton purchases. (Be on the lookout if this increases during Thanksgiving week.)
If you haven’t already signed up, Rakuten is an amazing way to earn cashback (or American Express Membership Rewards) for online shopping you’d be doing anyway. Just start at the portal, click through (in this case to Hilton), and make a purchase — and you’ll get cashback.
If you’re not already a member of Rakuten, I’d appreciate if you used my link to sign up. You’d receive a $10 referral bonus and you can set your cashback preference to Membership Rewards in settings.
What’s the best credit card to use?
If you’re looking for the best credit card to book your Hilton stay, use a card that gives you a points multiplier for the “travel” category like the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x Ultimate Rewards points) or Amex Green Card (3x Membership Rewards points). This is in addition to the Hilton Honors points you’d earn as well.
Alternatively, a co-branded card like the Hilton Honors Surpass Card from American Express is a solid option too. The current sign up bonus on this card is a generous 125,000 Hilton Honors points after $2,000 in spend the first three months (see rates and fees), and comes with perks like the ability to earn Hilton Diamond status and a Weekend Night Reward after hitting certain spending thresholds.
This Hilton flash sale is a great cash offer if you’re looking to stay at a higher-tier chain property and planning travel to Japan, Guam, Hong Kong, or South Korea in the near future. Between Hilton’s 50% off offer, the Rakuten cashback, and using a good travel credit card, you’ll be locking in a great discount on your stay.
