Hilton $50 Statement Credit, Amazon Prime for $72, Virgin America Double Points, Travelocity $30 off $100
Greetings from Birmingham (England, not Alabama) where it is nice and sunny (albeit not warm).
Here are a few deals for your weekend enjoyment…
Hilton $50 Amex statement credit
By now you probably know about American Express Sync offers. Just wanted to point out a new one specific to travel: receive a $50 statement credit when you spend $250 or more with Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
Do note the terms specify this offer is valid only at Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties (not other Hilton brands such as Waldorf Astoria, Embassy Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, etc.).
However, there are older (but still valid) Amex offers for other brands – both Hilton and non-Hilton – such as Conrad Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree, Hyatt Place, and Waldorf Astoria. I try to maintain a current list of all Amex offers on the Other Deals page.
Since this is not a targeted offer, you can add it via Twitter with hashtag #AmexHilton if it is not available in your Amex account.
If you are unfamiliar with Amex Sync offers, my primer is here.
Amazon Prime for $72
Today (January 24) only, Amazon is offering Prime membership for $72. This is a rare offer for 27% off the normal $99 price.
Among other benefits, Prime members receive unlimited 2-day shipping with no minimum and instant streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video.
Do note the offer is good for new members only.
And don’t forget to check out the ongoing ShopRunner offer for free 2-day shipping to many other stores.
Travelocity mobile offers
Travelocity’s mobile offers for savings on hotels booked via the app are back.
For $30 off $100+ use code MOBILEJAN30H. For $40 off $150+ use code MOBILEJAN40H.
Alternatively, you can save 15% off a hotel booking of $300+ with code JAN15NOW.
These expire at 11:59 PM Pacific tomorrow (January 25). They exclude “most national brand chain hotels,” but are nice discounts if you find a boutique property meeting your needs.
Double points on Virgin America flights

Enjoy the weekend!
