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.


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.

Can always add as AU.
And then ship the card to the buyer?

Is there anyway to sell this Resort credit on the Aspire without adding an AU?
Just got this card (approved like 1 min ago). How does this work? Is adding an AU the only way to go?

It does, but there probably are many who just got the card, myself included, and it's always better to sell earlier rather than later as value goes down with expiration/desperation

It might be useful to add some names of resorts with relatively low room rates. People will probably be more inclined to buy/use these if they know they can save whatever % on their whole reservation, whereas if they're staying at a hotel where room rates are high, saving x% on $250 of their reservation may only come out to a very small % savings on their whole reservation.

For example, TPG mentioned the Tropicana Law Vegas where (acc to TPG) room rates are around $100, so you could get 2-3 nights for not much more than a $250 credit, which means a buyer can save that % on their whole reservation.

Am I making any sense here? I feel like there must've been a simpler way to say what I wanted to say :)

Selling one at 75%

P.S. This only works if you are staying in the hotel, right? I assume I can't just go use a spa in a Hilton hotel and apply the credit.
