Here’s an opportunity to get a LOT of Hilton points!
You can earn 75,000 Hilton points with the Hilton Honors™ Card from American Express card. Or 100,000 Hilton points with the Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express card. They’re the highest sign-up bonuses I’ve ever seen on these cards!
To earn the better bonuses, your applications must be received by May 4, 2016.
These cards are worth getting if you’ve never had them before. I’ll explain!
Last Call for Big AMEX Hilton Sign-Up Bonuses!
Both AMEX Hilton cards have best-ever sign-up bonuses! But you must apply by May 4, 2016.
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.
This is a great card to have if you:
- Don’t want to pay an annual fee
- Only stay at Hilton hotels occasionally
- Want a quick boost to your Hilton point balance
That’s enough for 2 nights at a top-tier hotel like the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice (depending on the season) where Emily and I stayed. Or 10 nights at Hilton Category 2 hotels like the Hampton Inn by Hilton Guadalajara/Expo in Mexico.
The annual fee of $75 is NOT waived for the 1st year.
But this card earns the most Hilton points for paid stays. So it’s the best option if you spend a lot of money at Hilton hotels. And, it comes with Hilton Gold Elite status, which gets you free breakfast and room upgrades when available.
If you need help choosing between the offers, here’s how to decide which Hilton card is right for you.
Depending on how you redeem your points, each sign-up bonus can be worth hundreds of dollars!
Keep These Tips in Mind!
Remember, American Express only allows folks to get the sign-up bonus ONCE per person, per lifetime on ALL their cards. So if you’ve ever had either card, you can NOT earn the sign-up bonus again.
However, you CAN earn both card offers if you’ve never had either card because they’re considered different card products. But, you should wait at least a day between AMEX applications to give each application time to process.
If you want to apply for both, be sure to give yourself enough time. And read my tips on how to complete your minimum spending requirements.
