Here’s what you need to know!
Earn 100,000 Hilton Honors Points After Spending $1,000+
The Hilton Honors American Express Card is offering an increased welcome offer. Now, new cardholders can earn 100,000 Hilton Honors bonus points after spending $1,000 in purchases on the card in the first 3 months of card membership.
Here at Upgraded Points, we value Hilton Honors points at 0.5 cents apiece, making this elevated welcome offer worth $500 in our view.
That’s not all, though. New cardholders can earn up to $100 in statement credits on eligible purchases made on the Hilton Honors card at Hilton hotels in the first 12 months of card membership.
These purchases can include bookings and incidental charges at the hotel of your choice, but note that additional card members on your account are not eligible for the offer.
If you’re getting started earning hotel points, you can’t go wrong with Amex’s introductory Hilton Honors card. Aside from the generous welcome offer, the card includes a slew of perks, such as
- 7x points per $1 spent on Hilton stays
- 5x points per $1 spent at U.S. restaurants, including takeout and delivery, at U.S. supermarkets, and at U.S. gas stations
- 3x points per $1 spent on all other purchases
Frequent travelers will love this card, as it incurs no foreign transaction fees (rates and fees).
Plus, the card comes with complimentary Hilton Honors Silver status, with the ability to upgrade to Gold status after spending $20,000 on eligible purchases on your card in a calendar year. Other cards offer higher tiers of elite status, but Silver status is nothing to scoff at.
Silver elite members receive a 20% bonus on points earned from each stay (not from purchases). Plus, you also receive perks such as a fifth night free on award stays and no resort fees on award stays.
Finally, the card has no annual fee (rates and fees).
