Topic Wiki

The new Hilton Aspire credit card from American Express comes with an annual $250 credit, which can be used towards room rates, taxes, spas, meals, and other incidentals at any of the 200+ hotels listed here.

Map view of all resorts here.


There are two ways to purchase someone's credit for use towards your room rate:

1)Use their card to book a prepaid rate online, or

2) Have them make you an AU and then use that card to pay for your room at check-in

Obviously, option 1 is more desirable for everyone.

3) Have the buyer send you a personalized link that pays to the resort.

Buying one more at 70%. 

For reference, the Waldorf Maldives allows up to 4 pre-paid transactions for the folio.

What I did was went back a few pages in the forum and asked people who were selling a while ago and got a few who never sold and never bumped, worth noting

Is that what they told you?

Yup - they originally gave me 2 and I needed to push for 2 more (they said 4 is the max).

i recently reached out to WA Maldives and they said their new policy is they can only send links for the same amount up to 4 times. Guess they may be catching on

Two thoughts:

1. If the amount is the limiting factor then you could just do four for $250, four for $249, etc.
2. I wonder why the hotels care whether or not we are doing this. The only thing I can think of is if Hilton doesn't reimburse them dollar for dollar for these resort credits.

the credit is from amex, not hilton it is a credit card perk. As far as the hotel is concerned you are using a regular CC. 

Id imagine the hotel cares because it is a lot of work to process a million cards and because it opens up the possibility of fraud

Just remember to spend every $ as any remainder will go back to the credit card owner (assuming you are purchasing Aspire Resort Credits here).
