From now until 06 September 2019, take advantage of Hilton's Amazing Asia Pacific Sale to save up to 35% off the Best Available Rate across all participating properties in the region! All stays must be booked at least two days in advance and they have to be completed before the end of 29 February 2020! While Hilton advertises a '20% off' sale, the discount varies from 10% to 25% from a property level and Hilton Honors members can take an additional 5-10% off (except Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan).
If you have been following The Shutterwhale's Telegram Group, you must have saved the amazing American Express offer on The Platinum Card which gives you S$200 back for spending S$500 at participating Hilton properties. Do remember that you have until 30 September 2019 to utilise this offer up to three times so if you are able to make prepayment at a participating property before the aforementioned date, you will be able to take advantage of both the 35% discount and the additional S$200 cashback!
The Platinum Card from American Express is definitely one of the best cards to hold in Singapore in spite of its high annual fee of S$1,712. While the mileage accrual rate leaves much to be desired, it does come with plenty of perks which no one banks in Singapore have been able to offer (e.g. getting 40% cashback on Hilton stays). If you are looking for a referral, applying for one through this unique link will give you an additional 40,000 Membership Rewards (MR) points which you can convert into 25,000 miles. These bonus points are on top of what you will earn with the card as well as the other Welcome Bonus of 75,000 MR points which you can obtain by spending S$20,000 within 3 months. In the best case scenario, putting S$20,000 of eligible spend towards any one of the participating Platinum EXTRA Partners can earn you up to 340,000 MR Points (212,500 Miles) - that is 10.6 miles per dollar!
