Hilton Honors Gold Elite Status
By far the best perk of the Hilton Surpass card is that all cardholders get automatic Gold elite status, which usually requires you to spend 40 nights a year in Hilton hotels!
Gold is the second-highest elite tier in the Hilton Honors program, and with your new Gold status, you’ll receive the following benefits:
- Complimentary room upgrades (up to executive level)
- 80% bonus on points earned from stays
- Daily food and beverage credit or free continental breakfast
- Late checkout
- Milestone bonuses
Daily free breakfast and complimentary room upgrades can offer travelers great value during their Hilton stays, not to mention that the 80% bonus in points earned bumps you up to 18 Hilton Honors points per $1 on Hilton stays.
Hot Tip: When you combine your 80% bonus from your Hilton Gold status with the 12x points you earn with your Hilton Surpass card, you’ll be earning a total of 30x points per $1 — representing a return of 12% on your Hilton stays.
Priority Pass Lounge Access
Another great benefit of the Hilton Surpass card is that it gives you 10 free visits to Priority Pass lounges each year. The Priority Pass lounge network includes over 1,300+ lounges worldwide, so you’ll almost always find one in whatever airport you’re flying in to, or out of.
Weekend Night Award
Those that spend $15,000 on purchases in a calendar year will earn a free weekend night reward that can be redeemed at nearly any Hilton hotel worldwide!
