I just received an email from American Express offering me a free weekend night certificate valid at any almost any Hilton hotel if I spend $1,000 on my Hilton HHonors American Express card by December 15th. The free weekend night is valid from 12 months of issuance so you have potentially almost all of 2017 to use it if you time the spending right. If you have the card, here is the link to try and see if you are targeted.
This is a really good offer – to put it in perspective if I spent the same $1,000 on a 2% cash back card, I would earn $20. So by shifting $1,000 of my spend to this card (which I normally don’t use), I’ll earn a free weekend night at Hilton family hotel. Forgoing $20 bucks for a free hotel night sounds good to me! If you have the offer, I highly recommend enrolling and taking advantage of it.
Here are the full terms of the offer:
