Advertiser Disclosure

This morning, I wrote about the increased offer on the no-fee American Express Hilton card. That was not the only one to see a point increase. The Hilton Amex Business card is offering 125,000 Hilton points for a limited time as well.

The Hilton Amex business card was a new offering from Amex after they took over the Hilton card portfolio. It is yet one more way to maximize your Hilton point earnings as it gives those customers who had the two previous Amex Hilton cards a new card to get.

Hilton Amex Business Card Analysis

A negative to me about this card offer is the spending requirement – shifting $5,000 in spending for 3 months to a Hilton card is pretty high. However, it is a small business card so that is what they are targeting this at.

One more thing to note is that you are paying the $95 annual fee up front. So, this offer comes with 50,000 points more than the one from this morning but you are essentially paying $95 more for those points (and the extra $4,000 in spending). Even with Hilton points lacking value against other hotel programs, I would still pay $95 to get 50,000 points! 🙂

If you are trying to accrue Hilton points, the weekend night reward is a nice bonus. Spending $15,000 in a calendar year for your first year is only $10,000 more than required by the sign-up bonus so you will get a free weekend night for just $10K in spending the first year.

Plus, for $15,000 in spending on everyday purchases, you will end up with 45,000 Hilton points – that is at least a mid-tier hotel and would be worth around $240. Not bad but not great either as that is less than a 2% return. However, you will be getting the free night as well.

Hilton Gold is an awesome free status to have since you get free breakfasts and even some cool upgrades at times.

Overall, if you can swing the spend, I would go for this offer.
