Excellent news just in for those holding American Express and Hilton co-branded credit cards. Word is out that some folks are being targeted with upgrade offers — and there are some pretty sweet offers on the table, with folks reporting that they’re seeing bonuses of up to 150,000 Hilton Honors points. You’ll find these upgrade offers in your email or in your Amex Offers

For the unfamiliar, there are currently 4 different Hilton Amex credit cards. These run the gamut from a no-fee option to a top-tier card with a hefty $450 annual fee.

Amex is pulling out all the stops for those who currently hold the Hilton Honors American Express Card. This card is already pretty decent; it earns 7x Hilton points per dollar at Hilton and 5x points at U.S. supermarkets, U.S. restaurants, and U.S. gas stations and comes with Hilton Honors Silver status. Although that’s pretty great for a free credit card, these are its main benefits.

There are currently 2 separate upgrade offers that we’re seeing:

Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card

If you’re looking to spruce up your Hilton game, Amex’s newest offer will allow you to upgrade your Hilton Honors card to a Hilton Surpass card and will give you an excellent bonus along with it.

Here are the details for the upgrade offer you may receive:

  • Earn 150,000 Hilton Honors points after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months of upgrading
  • Offer ends June 30, 2021
  • The Hilton Surpass card’s annual fee, which is $95, is not waived

The Hilton Surpass card offers some pretty sweet perks, including 12x points per dollar at Hilton and 6x points at U.S. supermarkets, U.S. restaurants, and U.S. gas stations. It also offers cardholders complimentary Gold elite status. This includes perks like free breakfast (soon to be a food and beverage credit), room upgrades, early check-in, late checkout, and more.

The second offer we’re seeing targets holders of both the no-fee Hilton Honors card and those who have the Hilton Surpass card to upgrade to the Hilton Aspire card.

It doesn’t matter which card you’ve already got, the offer you may receive is the same:

  • Earn 150,000 Hilton Honors points after spending $4,000 within the first 3 months of upgrading
  • Offer ends June 30, 2021
  • The Hilton Aspire card’s $450 annual fee is not waived

We’re big fans of the Hilton Aspire card here at Upgraded Points, and for good reason. Along with amazing benefits like a free weekend night certificate each anniversary, this card comes with complimentary Hilton Diamond elite status — Hilton’s top-tier status and a best-in-class offering in the credit card world.

Final Thoughts

If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your current Amex Hilton credit card, now is the time to do it. These large upgrade offers feature enough points to get you to any Hilton hotel in the world — with points to spare. Check your emails and your Amex Offers to see if you’ve been targeted.
