I experienced the same thing...website is terrible and prices were 15 to 20% more compared to Hilton website. And all the Hilton hotels were not in the option. Will never use it again unless I get another super awesome offer

Saved $240 vs pricing at Expedia (disregarding the value of the Expedia points).

Enough to justify the extra time it took to manouvre around the clunky web-site.

It could definitely use some improvement.

Booked travel on Feb 23. Transaction has a post date of Feb 25, but it actually posted today.

$200 annual travel credit posted on Feb 23. Now waiting for the $300 to show up.
Got my travel $300 credit today. All in all this worked out amazingly for me. I was able to use the $200 Platinum card credit from 2018 and from 2019, plus the $300. So $900 worth of travel cost me only about $200!!

Why are AMEX cards such as Scotiabank Gold Amex always excludes from these kinds of promotions?
It's because that card isn't issued by Amex, it's just processed though their network

Booked mine on Feb. 27th but it didn't show up posted until today (Mar. 6th) and the "Processed Date" says March 5th. No $300 credit yet.
But I noticed in the T&Cs for the $300 promo it says "must be charged to your registered card during the offer period and subsequently posted to the account by March 4, 2019." Should I be concerned? I mean it's not in my control how long it takes them to process the transaction...

The same thing happened to me. I called and the rep basically said I was SOL. :( So not only did I lose $300, I paid an extra 10-15% to book the rooms through Amex.

Seems like I'll be having the exact same issue...booked on Feb 27th and posted on March 5th. Might have to cancel the hotel booking and look elsewhere...meh

Guys, same here... Booked Feb 28 but posted March 5.... Why did it take a week to post?

I called Amex and they seemed to say I would still get the credit.

If any of you were successful confirming this, please DM me.

I'm pretty upset about this since I my reservations on Amex were more expensive than Expedia.

Good news; they gave me the $300 credit this morning (on their own; I didn't call in yet). So hopefully it will be the same for the rest of you in this situation.

I had the 15K points offer and similarly, I made bookings on Feb 28, and they posted March 5. The 15K points came through today.

I got the $300 today even though my Feb 28 posted on March 5.

Oddly, usually anything purchased on a given day is posted on the same day or one day after. Unsure why travel expenses aren't!

Very happy about this!!
