[I do NOT get a referral for any of the cards listed in this post.] 1.   50,000 Point American Express Hilton Card.  Million Mile Secrets reader Brandon (thanks!) sent a link to a no-fee American Express Hilton card which offers a 50,000 point sign-up bonus after spending $750 within 3 months, instead of the usual version which offers 40,000 points for the same amount of spending.  I updated the Hotel credit card tab with this new offer.

However, the terms say that you have to be approved for the card by May 31, 2012 to be eligible for the 50,000 point sign-up bonus.

I wouldn’t get this card just for the sign-on bonus, but would get it (I applied for it in my last app-o-rama) because it gets me access to Hilton’s AXON awards, which means that 4 nights in a top category 7 hotel will cost 145,000 points instead of 200,000 points.

You also get free Hilton Silver status which doesn’t get you many perks, but does get you access to slightly lower award redemptions.

I also like that it is a fee-free card so that I can keep the card for a long time.  I want to have at least 1 card from each bank which I will keep for a long time to get into the good books of each bank.

The earning structure is also pretty generous –  6 Hilton points per $1 spent at Hilton hotels, supermarkets, drugstores, gas stations, phone/internet/cable & 3 points per $1 for everything else.

I value each Hilton point at 0.5 cents per point.

2.  25% off Frontier Flights to Denver.  Million Mile Secrets reader Stu (thanks!) points out a 25% off coupon,WOW25, for non-stop Frontier Air flights to Denver or Colorado Springs which must be used by tomorrow May 6, 2012 for travel from November 1, 2012 to January 4, 2013.

Here are the complete terms and conditions which include black-out dates.
