Earlier this year, I let you know about big changes Hilton made to its award program, including eliminating their award chart.

Without an award chart, it’s more difficult to know how many points you’ll need for an award stay.  And because the AMEX Hilton cards are offering the highest sign-up bonuses ever right now, lots of folks are curious about how to use Hilton points.

Million Mile Secrets Readers Prefer the AMEX Hilton Surpass – Here’s Why!

The limited-time highest-ever AMEX Hilton card offers are disappearing on May 31, 2017.

So if you’ve been trying to decide whether to apply for the Hilton Honors™ Card from American Express or the Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express, I thought I’d let you know what other Million Mile Secrets readers are doing!

Both are good cards.  But the AMEX Hilton Surpass has a $75 annual fee.  However, readers still prefer it over the no annual fee AMEX Hilton Honors card!

Does Pooling Hilton Points Keep Them From Expiring?

Million Mile Secrets readers, Robert and Brian, commented:

Does pooling Hilton points with friends and family reset the expiration date for your hotel points?

Excellent question!

Hilton points expire after 12 months of no earning or redemption activity.

Unfortunately, combining Hilton points with friends or loved ones does NOT extend the life of your points.  So be mindful of the expiration date or you risk losing your points!

That said, there are lots of ways to keep your Hilton points from expiring.  Even without staying in a hotel!
