If you have an AMEX Hilton card, check your email or AMEX Offers section online for a fantastic deal!

Folks are reporting that American Express is offering them 150,000 Hilton points after they upgrade their card to an AMEX Hilton Aspire Card and meet minimum spending requirements!  Plus, when you upgrade your card, AMEX won’t pull your credit.  So your credit score will be completely unaffected!

150,000 Hilton points is a LOT.  For example, you’d have enough points for 2 nights at the Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa after you meet minimum spending requirements.  That could cost $1,000+, depending on when you travel!

The information for the Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets.  The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Or, you could use your 150,000 points to stay 15 free nights at the Hilton Garden Inn Vienna South in Austria.

If you have the Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card or Hilton Honors American Express Card, you may be eligible for a targeted upgrade to the Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express.  You’ll earn 150,000 Hilton points after upgrading and spending $4,000 on the card within 3 months.

That’s a great incentive to upgrade your card.  Because that’s as high as the card’s regular welcome bonus!  Here’s what you need to know:

  • Additional cardmembers (i.e. authorized users) can NOT take advantage of this offer
  • Your card must NOT be canceled or past due
  • Bonus points do NOT count toward elite tier qualification
  • Bonus points will be credited to your Hilton account within 8 weeks of the reaching the spending requirement

This is a great deal because it’s the same offer as if you apply for the card outright.  Remember, the AMEX Hilton Aspire card does have a $450 annual fee, which is not waived the first year.  So it’s something you’ll want to consider.

Team member Jason upgraded his no-annual-fee AMEX Hilton card to an AMEX Hilton Surpass card (no longer available) in the past.  And he had to pay a pro-rated annual fee.  So it’s likely that if you upgrade the same situation will apply to you.  And if you’re not sure how the card’s benefits will apply to a mid-year upgrade, read this post which answers a past reader question on the topic.

Let us know if you’re targeted for this deal!

Received an upgrade offer from Amex for my Hilton Ascend card. Upgrade to the Aspire ($450 annual fee) for 150K bonus points. Is this worth it if I already have the $95 card, plus the Chase Sapphire Reserve? I travel a lot for work, but all hotels and meals go on the corp card. Wondering if any other viewers have the same offer/dilemma? Thanks!

I got the non annual fee Hilton Amex card just 1-2 months ago. I also got the signup bonus after the required spending. Can I upgrade to Ascend card and get the new bonus, right now? Or do I have to wait for some certain period?

I got an offer to upgrade to the Ascend card. I get 150,000 points after meeting a $3K spend. Fee is $95.

I’m wondering if this upgrade will affect my Chase 24/5 status.

It won’t because you aren’t opening a new account, you’re just upgrading an existing one.
