Earlier this year we saw the biggest ever sign-up bonus on the Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express, though it expired on May 31, 2017. The good news is that exactly the same offer is back once again, and it’s valid through October 4, 2017. I applied for the card during the last promotion, so this is a great opportunity to pick up the card if you didn’t have the chance last time (either because you were maxed out on Amex cards, missed the promotion, or whatever).
The $75 annual fee Hilton Honors Surpass Card is offering 100,000 Hilton Honors bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months. On top of that, you get a free weekend night valid at any Hilton Honors hotel on your first cardmember anniversary.
The Surpass Card offers the following return on spend:
- 12x points on Hilton purchases
- 6x points at US restaurants, US supermarkets, and US gas stations
- 3x points on other purchases
The card also offers Honors Gold status for as long as you have the card, which gets you room upgrades, lounge access, free breakfast, etc. If you spend $40,000 on the card in a year you’ll earn Hilton Honors Diamond status as well.
If you don’t yet have the Hilton Honors Surpass Card, I’d highly recommend applying. We’ve never seen a bigger sign-up bonus on the card. Not only do you get 100,000 points, but on the card’s first anniversary you get a free weekend night that can be redeemed at virtually any property. That includes hotels that retail for up to 95,000 points per night, meaning that you can get up to 195,000 points of value out of this sign-up bonus.
This is a great card that offers a great sign-up bonus and excellent ongoing perks. You have about five weeks to apply under the current offer.
