Back in November Amex Sync ran a promotion available via Twitter for a $40 credit when you spend $175 or more on a DoubleTree stay between December 19, 2014 and February 2, 2015. Folks are still tweeting to get in on the promotion, so it looks like the limit for signups has not yet been reached.
The offer is good for DoubleTree hotels in the US or Puerto Rico, and reservations must be made online at www.doubletree.com or over the phone. Unfortunately the deal is not valid at other Hilton branded hotels, just DoubleTree.
The Twitter hashtag is #AmexDoubleTree.
If you have an American Express card, new promotions are constantly being added in either your “Amex offers for you” tab or via Twitter, but while the “Amex offers for you” promotions vary by person, the Twitter promotions are the same for everyone. The only catch is that enrollment in the Twitter promos is usually limited, so if you see one you like you should Tweet the hashtag as soon as you can to get in on the deal before the limit is reached.
If you haven’t done this before, it’ll just take a few steps.
Create a Twitter account by using this handy link.
Sync your Amex to your Twitter account via this link (only one Amex card allowed per Twitter account, but just about any Amex will qualify as long as it isn’t a giftcard).
Sign back into Twitter with this link and Tweet the promotion’s hashtag (the one for this promo is #AmexDoubleTree. A few minutes later you’ll get a response from @AmexOffers with your name, saying that offer has been added to your card.
Once you receive that confirmation, you can use your synced Amex to make your Doubletree booking. If you don’t get a response, message them at @AskAmex.
Once you’ve completed your stay, you’ll see a $40 statement credit on your Amex account.
If I had upcoming DoubleTree stays planned I’d definitely try to get in on this promotion.
Here’s a link to the offer.
Some folks have asked if DoubleTree sells gift cards. The ones I’ve been to do not, and reportedly there are some that do but I haven’t gotten details. If any readers are successful at finding a DoubleTree that sells gift cards (that could then be used at Hiltons), let me know.
