The no-fee Hilton Amex card is back with 75,000 Hilton points! Find a direct link to this offer here and add this great card to your wallet!

Just like the 100,000 Hilton point offer on the Surpass card I wrote about yesterday, the no-fee Amex Hilton card is back up to its previous high as well – 75,000 Hilton points. With this card, there is a direct link available.

75,000 Hilton point offer

The 100,000 Hilton point Surpass offer is currently available through referral links but I have found a direct link for the no-fee Amex card. If you have a referral link for it, feel free to leave it in the comments!

american express 75,000 hilton points – no-fee

  • Earn 75,000 points after spending $1,000 in 3 months
  • Earn 7 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 5 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 Silver status with your Card.
  • Earn Hilton HHonors Gold when you spend $20,000 in a calendar year on this card.
  • Annual Membership Fee: $0
  • Expires 6/30/2016

Aside from the sign-up bonus, the best feature of this card is that it has no annual fee. That is great and a good reason to keep the card for future Hilton point earning if you need it. But, the bad part is that Amex restricts you to only 4 credit cards so you may need to give up the Hilton card at some point if you want another Amex card (though frequent miler points out that some have been able to have more).

While Hilton points are not worth as much as Hyatt or SPG, they definitely have value. I have booked several award nights this year and am consistently getting over .6 cents per point against the cost. Sometimes, it is 1 cent per point. At any rate, given Hilton’s footprint, if I were you, I would try to accumulate as many Hilton points as possible.

Match to Hilton Diamond Status

Do not forget to match your current hotel status from another chain to Hilton to try for Hilton Diamond to go along with your new points! Reports indicate that even the free IHG Platinum status that comes with the IHG card will work for Diamond matching!

  • I currently have the platinum amex. Do you think I could apply and receive both the surpass AND the regular hilton honors simultaneously for a total of 175,000 bonus points?

  • I received the AMEX Hhonors card! But be aware even if you log in to your US Hhonors account at Hiltons US website they will charge you in non US$ currency for your pre-paid reservation if the Hilton Hotel is in outside the USA!
    That means you pay the 3% Amex fee on top of your Hilton booking!
    If i book the same Hilton hotel on US Expedia web site – charges are in US$ and no extra Amex fees – but only basic Hilton points…

    I only can recommend this card if you book/travel Hilton hotels based in the USA otherwise the Amex “foreign transaction” fees will sum up in a year!

    • Good tip, Henry! Since Amex has been going through their lineup stripping the forex fee, hopefully they will do it to this one soon!

  • Is it possible to just use the points for statement credit (to pay off my card)? and if so, how much?
