Note:   Remember you get 3X points with both cards for regular purchases.  So you’d earn 3,000 Hilton points for the $1,000 minimum spending requirement for the AMEX Hilton card or 9,000 Hilton points for the $3,000 minimum spend requirement on the Hilton Surpass card.

  1. Farnorthtrader

    Doubletree Beijing. Rated in the top 1% of Beijing hotels on tripadvisor and only 10,000 points per night.

  2. Some excellent values here….thank you!

    Question: I have had a couple of A/E Hilton cards in the past – they are now closed.
    Unfortunately I do not know which specific ones they were.
    Is there anyway to find out if I have had either one of these cards before applying for one?
    Thanks for any help on this issue.

  3. @Farnorthtrader – That’s a great one, too! Thank you for adding your pick! 🙂

    @misty – Thanks for reading!

    I’d say call AMEX and ask because they should have it in their records. Then you could apply for the one you haven’t had before.

  4. link to Surpass had changed to 50k

  5. @choi – The AMEX Hilton Surpass card is still showing 100,000 Hilton points for me when I click. The offer is good through tomorrow, May 4, 2016. Maybe try a different browser? Let me know if it doesn’t work for you!

  6. John McCain was unfortunate enough to have an involuntary stay at the “Hanoi Hilton”! For a generation of us, that name does not have pleasant connotations!

  7. Can you apply for both cards in the same day?
