Good afternoon everyone. I love my American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card and have gotten great value from this credit card. I have written extensively about this credit card in these posts:
- American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card: Welcome Packet, Welcome Letters & Card Art
- American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card: Spend Tracker, Referrals & All Benefits
- How Quickly Does Hilton Diamond Elite Status Appear After Getting Approved for AMEX Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card?
- American Express Hilton Aspire $250 Airline Fee Credits Post Quickly
- Does the $450 Annual Fee Count Toward AMEX Hilton Aspire Minimum Spend? Maybe Yes
- When Does the AMEX Hilton Aspire Free Weekend Night Certificate Post to Your Account?
In today’s post, I will show you how I stacked a DoubleTree AMEX Offer (spend at least $225 and get a $45 statement credit) with the $250 Resort Credit offered on the American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card. I am a big fan of AMEX Offers and occasionally you will see Hilton related AMEX Offers on your American Express Hilton credit cards. As luck would have it, there was this nice DoubleTree AMEX Offer available on my American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card. This offer is still available for the next 3 days, if you are interested.
As I mentioned earlier, ever year you are an American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card member, you get a $250 Resort Credit at participating Hilton Resorts.
Click here to see participating Hilton Resorts. You might be surprised what Hilton considers a resort, but I recently stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Sonoma Wine Country. It is located in Rohnert Park, near Sonoma State University, and close to hundreds of wineries in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, and Napa. The hotel is also attached to a golf course, which is probably why it is considered a resort, but thankfully, there are no resort fees at this property. I booked the hotel reservation directly through the Hilton Resorts website, but I am not 100% sure that is required, but I wanted to play it safe.
When I checked into the hotel on January 17, I paid with my American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card and immediately triggered the DoubleTree AMEX Offer.
I checked out of the hotel on January 21 and the charge posted to my American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card the next day on January 22.
The following day, on January 23, the $45 statement credit posted from the DoubleTree AMEX Offer. And the day after that, on January 24, the $250 Resort Credit posted to my account. Doing some math, my stay was $762.46 – $45 AMEX statement credit – $250 Resort Credit = $467.46 / 4 nights = $116.87 per night.
I also earned 16,498 Hilton Honors points, which I value at 0.5 cents per point (CPP), for a value of $82.49. If I take $467.46 – $82.49 = $384.97 / 4 nights = $96.24. That is a great deal for this hotel.
If you have any questions about stacking AMEX Offers and the $250 Resort Credit on the American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
