With summer travel right around the corner, many credit issuers are upping their welcome bonus offers. And now, a couple of Hilton Honors American Express cards have boosted their welcome offers.

Here is a look at the details of each increased offer. Note that terms may apply, and enrollment is required to select American Express benefits.

Increased Hilton Honors Card Welcome Offers

Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card

Welcome Offer: Earn 155,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 in purchases on the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership. The points are worth approximately $775 based on our valuations.

Hilton Surpass cardholders earn 12x points per $1 spent at Hilton hotels and resorts, 6x points per $1 on U.S. restaurants, U.S. gas stations, and U.S. supermarkets, 4x points per $1 on U.S. online purchases, plus 3x points per $1 on all other eligible purchases. You’ll also enjoy perks like complimentary Hilton Gold status, and a Free Night Reward certificate after you spend $15,000 on your card in a calendar year.

The Hilton Surpass card comes with a $150 annual fee (rates & fees).

Hilton Honors American Express Card

Welcome Offer: Earn 100,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after you spend $2,000 in purchases on the Card in the first 6 months of Card Membership. Offer ends 4/17/24. The points are worth approximately $500 based on our valuations.

With the Hilton Honors card, you’ll earn 7x points per $1 spent at Hilton hotels and resorts, 5x points per $1 on U.S. restaurants, U.S. supermarkets, and U.S. gas stations, plus 3x points per $1 on all other eligible purchases. Not only does the Hilton Honors card have a $0 annual fee (rates & fees), but it also offers complimentary Hilton Silver status, and the opportunity to spend your way to Gold status by spending $20,000 on the card in a calendar year.

A Bonus Worth 5 Nights at the Conrad Bali

The Conrad Bali is a luxury beachfront resort on Bali’s southern coast that offers stunning views of the Indian Ocean. Guests will find everything they need at the property, including 3 restaurants, a poolside bar, lagoon-style swimming pools, a spa, a gym, and over 1,100 feet of a beautiful beach.

While Hilton now uses variable award pricing, if you’re flexible with your travel dates, you might be able to score award nights for as low as 35,000 points per night, meaning the welcome bonus on the Hilton Surpass card could get you 4 free nights at the property using your points. And thanks to your Hilton status from your new card, you get your 5th night free on award stays.
