Hilton HHonors (AMEX) – Increased Bonuses

Please note that I will always try to post the best sign-up bonus, but you should also do your own research!

Cards:

Yesterday, u/wolfroad over on reddit posted that the bonuses for these cards was much higher than usual. Generally, the base card offers  50,000 points for spending $1,000 in 90 days and the Surpass cards offers 75,000 points after spending $3,000 in 90 days. Let’s take a look at the current offers below the jump, available until November 30th:

NOTE:  This isn’t all of the card benefits, but what I consider to be the most important ones!

Base Surpass
Annual Fee $0 $75
Required Spend $1,000 in 90 days $3,000 in 90 days
Bonus Points 50,000 100,000
Point Earning Structure 7 points per dollar at Hilton

5 points per dollar at restaurants, supermarkets, and gas stations

3 points per dollar on everything else

12 points per dollar at Hilton

6 points per dollar at restaurants, supermarkets, and gas stations

3 points per dollar on everything else

Hilton Status? Yes, Silver Yes, Gold
Status Upgrade? Yes, spend $20,000 in a calendar year and you can earn HHonors Gold status through the end of the next calendar year Yes, spend $20,000 in a calendar year and you can earn HHonors Diamond status through the end of the next calendar year
Priority Pass? No Yes

You should also note that these bonuses are once per lifetime, meaning if you’ve every had one of these cards before, you will not be eligible for the bonus (Nick and I have each have both, so we’re out of luck!).

My take:  Hilton points aren’t worth that much, but if you’ve found a great opportunity to use them, or you’re adding to a large pool, I would suggest applying.
