American Express cards have a great money-saving perk — regular cashback deals on both big-name brands and smaller boutique stores. If they happen to cover things you’d normally buy anyway, these offers are a great way to make the most out of your card.

While we won’t update this list with every single promotion that shows up (especially as some are targeted), we will include the bigger travel and points-related deals that more people can take advantage of. Don’t forget to enrol in the year-round Shop Small campaign as well, which offers three bonus points per dollar at small retailers.


Get ready for the next round of Amex offers by signing up for a new card. Enjoy free flights with a hefty welcome bonus!


Highlighted Deals and Promotions from American Express

2. Convert points to Hilton Honors with a 30% bonus

Expiry: 30 December 2021

Sitting on a stash of American Express Membership Rewards points? Transfer some – or all – of those points to Hilton Honors to fetch a 30% bonus. There’s a minimum transfer of just 2,000 Membership Rewards points. The 30% booster applies to transfers made until 11:59 pm AEST on 30 December 2021.

For example, Membership Rewards points normally convert into Hilton Honors points at a 2:1 rate. That’s 50,000 Hilton Honors points when you transfer 100,000 Membership Rewards points. But with the 30% bonus added on top, your tally instead becomes 65,000 Hilton Honors points on that same transfer. You can transfer your points online.

3. Convert points to Marriott Bonvoy with a 30% bonus

Expiry: 30 December 2021

Mirroring the incentive for Hilton Honors members, there’s also a 30% bonus with Marriott Bonvoy. Just convert your Membership Rewards points into Marriott Bonvoy points by 30 December 2021. A minimum transfer of 600 Membership Rewards points applies per transaction. After that, points can be converted in additional increments of 300 Membership Rewards points.

Let’s say you again had 100,000 Membership Rewards points to ship across. Amex normally applies a 3:2 conversion rate on these transfers. On a normal day, that’d return about 66,666 Marriott Bonvoy points. Yet with the 30% booster, you’d instead take home approximately 86,665 points with Marriott Bonvoy. Note again, points are transferred in increments of 300, so this example is illustrative only.

4. Spend $400 or more, get $80 back with Hilton

Expiry: 31 December 2021

Looking at booking hotels for your next domestic trip? Spend $400 or more at participating Hilton hotels across Australia to get an $80 credit back to your account!

Summing up

Need a reminder on how to access these American Express deals and promotions? Read our dedicated guide to taking advantage of Amex Offers. Be sure to save the offers to your card before doing the transaction, and check the T&Cs for each deal to make sure you don’t do anything that would make the transaction ineligible.

For all offers, you won’t be able to earn the credit back if you use third-party payment processors such as Zip, AfterPay, Klarna or PayPal, among others. So be sure that you pay the merchant directly with your eligible American Express card to secure the cashback. If you have multiple Amex cards, also check that the offer is saved to the particular card you’re using to pay.
