20% off Hilton Gift Card with Amex Offers and Free Shipping!

Back in November I wrote about a great Amex Offer that will allow you to purchase Hilton gift cards with a 20% off. With this offer, you can purchase a $50 gift card and receive a $10 statement credit. You can take advantage of this offer 4x per eligible American Express credit card, thus a total of $200 in Hilton gift cards per card for only $160. And of course you can take advantage of this offer on every card American Express card you have (that was targeted for this offer). You need to do 4 separate $50 transactions.

When I initially wrote about the offer, Hilton was charging $1.95 shipping fee, which was quite annoying, especially since you needed to purchase all gift cards separately. Then, Cyber Monday came early and Hilton offered the promo code CYBERHILT to waive the shipping fee. That meant that a $50 gift card costs $50 (not $51.95) and will trigger the $10 statement credit. To my surprise, thank you blog readers, this promo code is still working! This means you can still get the full 20% savings! If you stay at Hilton properties often, taking advantage of this promotion is a no brainer. Or, if you typically use points for your stay, you can always use gift cards are incidentals charged to your room – i.e., restaurants, activities, drinks at the bar, etc. This offer expires February 28, 2018, but I suggest adding this offer to your card sooner than later so it doesn’t meet maximum enrollment. I also am not sure when the free shipping promo code expires.

To enroll in this offer:

  • Sign into your AmericanExpress.com account and go to the “Amex Offers For You” tab. Find the Hilton Gift Card offer and make sure to select the “Add to Card” button (although once you do this for one card the option will disappear on other cards so make sure to do the multi-browser trick to learn how to register multiple Amex cards with your AmericanExpress.com account)
  • Purchase a $50+ gift card at http://buyhiltongiftcards.com/ and receive a $10 statement credit.

  1. The gift cards are good at all Hilton family brands (e.g. Curio Collection, Hilton Garden Inn, Doubletree, etc), correct? If so that’s a good deal, as the regular Amex offers on Hilton tend to be quite narrow in which brands qualify.

    • @ymx – unfortunately not, unless after the gift cards are used you still need to pay $175 out of pocket and then you bill it to your registered amex credit card to utilize this offer.

  2. Do you know if the charges post as Hilton Spend, i.e. on hilton AMEX Surpass, will I get 12x points on the gift cards I purchase?

  3. CYBERHILT no longer appears to be working, and contrary to what rxgeek says above, the 1.95 shipping fee is still there at checkout.

  4. I’m not even seeing a field to enter a promotional code on buyhiltongiftcards.com. If I go through the AMEX link, there is a field for a promo code, but there isn’t one via buyhiltongiftcards.com.

    • *BUMP*

      Not seeing where to even enter the code either. And it was this way back in Dec. Is there some trick to getting the field to appear? Different browser?

      Please more details, please, or at least confirm there’s no longer a place to enter the code so that I can give up on this snipe hunt.

  5. A week or so ago, shipping was free…

    Now its $1.95.

    Since its “per order” it s not as desirable.

    No place ot enter the code…
