About the AMEX Hilton Card Offers
Through May 4, 2016, the AMEX Hilton and Hilton Surpass Cards are offering their highest bonuses ever!
You can earn 100,000 Hilton points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening the American Express Hilton HHonors Surpass card. The $75 annual fee is NOT waived for the first year. You can read my review of the card here.
These are considered different card products. So you can earn the sign-up bonus from both!
But remember, American Express only allows folks to earn the bonus ONCE, per person, per lifetime, on ALL its cards.
5 Amazing Hilton Hotels in Asia
Hilton hotels include Conrad, Canopy, Curio, DoubleTree, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn, Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations, Home2Suites, Homewood Suites, Tru, and Waldorf Astoria brand hotels.

I haven’t personally stayed at all of these hotels. But they seem like good deals!

And don’t forget to check out my post on 5 spectacular hotels in Asia where you can use your 2 weekend night certificates from the Citi Hilton Reserve card.
1. Hilton Xi’an
Xi’an is a popular tourist destination in central China, known as the home to many ancient dynasties. If you’re planning a trip here, the Hilton Xi’an hotel would be a great choice.
I found rooms here in June 2016 for ~858 Chinese Yuan (~$132) or 30,000 Hilton points per night. So you can get 2 to 3 free nights depending on which AMEX Hilton card you sign up for. That’s a savings of ~$264 to ~$396!
The hotel is also just ~1.25 miles from the famous Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses. Here you can see thousands of life-sized, handmade figures buried with China’s first emperor.
2. Conrad Seoul
Use your Hilton points for Big Travel with Small Money at the luxurious Conrad Seoul when visiting this vibrant city in South Korea.
Folks on TripAdvisor give it glowing reviews because of its elegant design, helpful staff, and excellent location.
Nights here in July 2016 cost ~329,868 South Korean Won (~$290) or 60,000 Hilton points per night. So you’ll get 1 free night with the sign-up bonus from either the AMEX Hilton or AMEX Hilton Surpass cards. Or enough points for 3 free nights when you sign up for both cards. Saving you ~$870!
That’s because you’ll get at least 78,000 Hilton points from the AMEX Hilton card (75,000 point sign-up bonus + 3,000 points from minimum spend requirement). And 109,000 Hilton points from the AMEX Hilton Surpass card (100,000 point sign-up bonus + 9,000 points from minimum spend requirement). For a total of 187,000 Hilton points (78,000 + 109,000).
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.
3. Hilton Hanoi Opera
Rooms in July 2016 cost ~$151 or 40,000 Hilton points per night. So you can get 2 free nights with the AMEX Hilton Surpass sign-up bonus. And 4 free nights if you sign up for both AMEX Hilton cards!
Hanoi is known for its architecture, temples, and street markets. And the historic Hanoi Opera House is just across the street from the Hilton Hanoi!
4. Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa
Thailand is one of the most popular destinations in Southeast Asia. And the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa is a great option in Phuket.
I found rooms here in July 2016 for ~5,118 Thai Baht (~$146) or 30,000 Hilton points per night.
Phuket is one of the top 10 diving destinations in the world. So you could pay for your scuba certification with the money you save using your Hilton points!
5. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Jakarta – Diponegoro
And my sweet tooth likes the warm chocolate chip cookie you get at check-in. 😉
Rooms here in July 2016 cost ~1,470,150 Indonesian Rupiah (~$111) or 20,000 Hilton points per night.
So you can get 3 to 6 free nights with the sign-up bonuses from either of the AMEX Hilton cards. Saving you between $333 and $666!
That’s because you get the 5th night free on any award stay when you have elite status with Hilton (which comes with both AMEX cards). So 6 nights would only cost 100,000 Hilton points (20,000 points per night X 5 nights).
This hotel gets almost all 5 stars on TripAdvisor. Because of its convenient location, friendly staff, and beautiful pool (that’s kid friendly too!).
While you’re there, visit Old Town Jakarta for its architecture, delicious food, and street markets.
You can earn points for free nights at many amazing hotels with the highest-ever offers on the AMEX Hilton and AMEX Hilton Surpass. But your applications for those offers must be received by May 4, 2016.
