Up to $40 Free With Uber, 10% Rebate at Hilton & Embassy Suites
There are some travel deals I thought worth mentioning, but I have to keep it brief as I’m still at the hotel from hell (but checking out soon, thankfully).
The Internet here is…not fast. Today is actually one of the better days yet I’m still clocking dismal speeds.
I kid you not. This is from a few minutes ago:
Anyway, here are the deals!
Free $10 with Uber
A new Amex Sync promotion gives a $10 statement credit for spending $10 or more with Uber. The Twitter hashtag is #AmexUber in case the offer is not already in your account.
Additionally, if you don’t already have an Uber account you can get another free $30 in signup credit through a referral link (mine is here if you’d like).
10% off at Hilton and Embassy Suites
If you have a Bank of America credit card, BofA currently has a couple of sync-like offers too.
One is for 10% cash back at a Hilton Hotels & Resorts property:
Another is for 10% back at Embassy Suites.
You need to register for these offers, which can be done by logging into your credit card account and navigating to the “Cash Back Deals” tab.
A few tips:
- Be sure to read the terms carefully as there are certain spending requirements.
- Even though the offers expire November 11, it might be possible to “extend” that date by buying a gift card for future use. (I have not tried this so I cannot guarantee it, but I see no reason why you shouldn’t get the credit card rebate if you go to one of the qualifying properties and buy a gift card there.)
- These rebates should combine with discounts and promotions offered by the hotel directly, so be sure to look for those too. For example, Hilton’s fall promotion is still going on.
- The credit card charge needs to be from the hotel, so paying through a third party (such as Orbitz or Expedia) will most likely NOT work.
