Amex Hilton Surpass 100K Offer
A couple of months ago American Express released an 85,000 point offer on their co-branded Hilton HHonors Surpass card. My wife actually applied and was approved under that previously “best ever” offer on the card. Now they seem to have upped the ante with a 100K offer! Let’s take a look.
Earn 100,000 Hilton HHonors points after spending $3,000 in the first three months. Expires 5/04/2016.
- Hilton HHonors Gold status.
- Diamond status after $40K in spend a year. (Find out how you can match to HHonors Diamond.)
- 12X points at Hilton Hotels, 6X at U.S. restaurants, supermarkets and gas stations and 3X everywhere else.
I have written before about where I believe the value with Hilton HHonors is. For me, redemptions in the lower categories can often be a very good value. For example, this bonus is good for 20 nights in a category 1, 10 nights in a category 2 or 5 nights in a category 3. That is a lot of value, especially considering Gold elite status gets you upgrades and free breakfast at most properties.
If you are a current holder of the Surpass card then you can refer your friends to this offer and earn 15,000 points per successful referral up to 80,000 points per year. As of right now the referral email that is sent out says the bonus is only 60K, but the actual application shows the 100K bonus.
American Express has been very agressive with bonuses lately. In the past few months we have seen best ever offers on both of the co-branded Hilton cards and both of the SPG cards as well. To me this offer is very attractive considering my Diamond status which gets me upgrades and breakfast at a lot of properties. If my wife hadn’t recently signed up I would definitely jump on this.
