Increased Offer For Hilton Surpass With 80,000 Hilton Points

Written by Charlie

There is a new increased offer on the Hilton Surpass card for 80,000 Hilton points! Put that new Hilton Diamond status to work on some Hilton stays with these points.

For all of you new Hilton Diamond members out there who are chomping at the bit to try out your new status, here is a new increased credit card offer for you to take advantage of – the Hilton Surpass card with 80,000 points.

Hilton Surpass With 80,000 Hilton Points

This card has been up to 80,000 Hilton points from the regular 60,000 points a few times. The highest it has been in the past year was 85,000 points so this is slightly lower but still a good deal.

Unfortunately, the easy way to churn this card without a new application appears to be closed now. It is a shame as I have had my new Surpass card bonuses post recently – on two cards with 50,000 points each. So, if you have been holding off on this card for an increased deal, this is a great offer. If you have ever had this card before, you will not be eligible for the bonus.

Here are the terms for this offer:

– hilton surpass 80,000 points

  • 80,000 hilton pointsEarn 80,000 points after spending $3,000 in 3 months
  • Earn 12 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points for each dollar of eligible purchases charged directly with a participating hotel or resort within the Hilton HHonors portfolio of brands‡
  • Earn 6 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points for each dollar of eligible purchases at U.S. restaurants, at U.S. supermarkets, and at U.S. gas stations‡
  • Earn 3 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points for all other eligible purchases on your Card‡
  • Enjoy complimentary Hilton HHonors Gold status with your Card. ‡
  • Annual Membership Fee: $75 (not waived the first year)

What Can You Do With These Points?

80,000 is a lot of points. Of course, it does not possess the same value as the infamous 80,000 points from the IHG card (simply because of IHG’s Point Break lists), but you can still do a lot with this many points. For starters, many of the category 3 and 4 hotels offer exceptional value at the best bang for the point. There are a lot of those category hotels around the country so the 80,000 points could really help you there.

These points could also serve as a reserve account for when you need to stay at a hotel and rates are high. Since there are so many Hilton hotels around the world, you can be assured that there will be one where you need to be almost all of the time. One such scenario would be airports. I had a similar experience this year when a trip came up last minute that had me staying overnight in Chicago. I used 40,000 points to stay at the hilton in chicago’s o’hare airport. Incredibly convenient and saved me over $300.

Want a great value with these points? using points for all-inclusive resorts – hilton edition

One of my new favorite uses for Hilton points is all-inclusive resorts. I have stayed at a few all-inclusives now and my most recent was completely on Hilton points at only 50,000 points per night. That was an exceptional value for what we got to enjoy. There are a lot of options with Hilton points – the first step is to just get the card. :) If you only want to stay at the top tier Hilton hotels, then you would probably be better served with the citi hilton reserve card. This gives two free weekend nights at any Hilton after meeting the minimum spend.

No matter how you cut it, 80,000 Hilton points is a lot and can give you a wide range of options for using them. If you had recently received Hilton Diamond through the match, you will be able to get these points to see how well this status stacks up against your expectations.

  • It will be interesting to see if this works for anyone. I got my Surpass last month @60,000 and haven’t reached minimum spend yet so decided to try to get matched to this offer. When the agent couldn’t find it, I read the URL out and was told that offer is expired.

  • The 75k Hilton citi Visa no fee was a no brainier lots of people have the citi reserve or Amex plat so Gold is easy to obtain . This isn’t as good as it used to be .

    • That was a great deal. But, if someone wants the Surpass, it has only been higher at 80k so this is worth getting if someone wants Hilton points.
