Hilton Surpass 100K free night

Amex Hilton Surpass 100K + Free Night Offer

I posted earlier about a new highest ever bonus on the No-Fee Amex Hilton card, and now the Surpass card also has a best ever offer. The 100K offer has kind of been the standard offer for the Surpass card recently, but Amex has made it even better, by adding a free night.

The Offer

Limited Time Offer Earn 100,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 in purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. Plus, earn a free weekend night award after your first anniversary of Card Membership.† Offer Ends 5/31/2017.

Key Features

  • Hilton HHonors Gold status.
  • Diamond status after $40K in spend a year.
  • 12X points at Hilton Hotels, 6X at U.S. restaurants, supermarkets and gas stations and 3X everywhere else.

Free Weekend Night Award

The free weekend night award will be sent as an email from Hilton to the email address listed on your Hilton Honors account within [6-8 weeks] after the first anniversary date of the Card account. This means that you’ll have to pay that second annual fee in order to receive the free night.

The free weekend night award can be redeemed at participating properties in the Hilton Honors portfolio for a weekend night. The free weekend night award must be redeemed for stays consumed within 12 months after the date of issuance.

Free weekend night includes all applicable taxes; however, the Basic Card Member may be responsible for payment of additional mandatory resort fees at participating Hilton Hotels & Resorts where resort fees are applicable.

This benefit is part of the bonus offer, so current cardholders don’t qualify for it.

Analysis

This card gives you an extra 20K points compared to the no fee card and you’re paying a $75 annual fee. That works out to 0.375 cent each which is almost as high as the value you’re get from Hilton points.

But the free night for another $75 on the second year adds more value to this card. You should easily get a 2-3 times more value out of that free night, so if you’re on the fence about which card to pick, you should go with this one first (or both).

Conclusion

American Express has been very agressive with bonuses lately. We have seen seen recently best ever offers on both of the co-branded Hilton cards and both of the SPG cards as well. This is a very attractive offer, especially if you already have Diamond Status which gets you upgrades and breakfast at lots of properties.

  1. This is still not a real good offer. Hilton points are worth an appalling 0.4 cents each. The bonus is only worth about $400. Starwood points have a value of 2.2 cents each and Hyatt points are worth 1.5 cents each for comparison.

    • I agree this isn’t the best offer we have ever seen (although it is the best we have seen on this card), but a $400 bonus plus the free weekend night is fairly valuable. You also add in Amex Offers and Gold status (for someone who doesn’t have it) and this is a good deal. Again, not on the level of a Platinum 100K offer, but something worth considering if people are in the market for Hilton points.

  2. I am not clear on the wording of the free weekend nite benefit. Is the free weekend nite a one-time benefit after the first anniversary or is it a recurring benefit after each anniversary.
