There are a lot of people that are fed up with Hilton Honors now that the program has gone more revenue based on redemptions. However, you have to love how easy it is to get these points, especially if you have never had the cards before! With just 2 Hilton cards (shown below), you can have enough points that you could get a minimum of $720 in value. Not bad for hotels, especially when you could get more than this!
Best Offers Ever – Hilton Cards from American Express
Hilton Surpass – 100,000 Points + 1 Free Weekend Night
Link: Hilton Surpass
The 100K points is nothing new and it has been around for a little while now. But, the addition of a free weekend night after the first year anniversary is interesting and valuable. It actually makes this card more worth it in the second year than the Citi Hilton Reserve since that free night requires spending (the anniversary night, that is). Here are the details of this new card 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
- Annual fee – $75 (not waived)
Free Weekend Night
That free weekend night is a great offer but you will need to pay the annual fee both the first year and the second. That means you will have paid a total of $150 for the 100,000 Hilton points and a free weekend night. In effect, the free weekend night will cost you $75. But, that is a great deal for sure, depending on the hotel you burn it on.
Hilton Card – 80,000 Points
Link: Hilton Card
This one has had 75,000 points as a high offer lately and now you can get an extra 5,000 points (if you have not already applied). On a card with no annual fee, this is a great deal for sure! Here are the details on this offer:
- Earn 80,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after you spend $2,000 in purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership.
- Offer ends 05/31/2017
- No Annual Fee
This is a great card to get! Even if you do not have any plans for Hilton stays, it can be very valuable to have Hilton points in your account. Hilton has a great presence at airports around the world and if you find you need to stay at one, you will have the points!
Even with the changes to the Hilton redemption program, there is still value to be had. I really like the addition of the free weekend night on the Hilton Surpass card and that should be very valuable.
