The American Express Hilton HHonors Credit Card now has an increased welcome bonus of 75,000 Hilton points when you spend $1,000 within the first 3 months (OFFER EXPIRED).

Similar to the offer that just came out on the Amex Hilton Surpass Card it is marketed as a limited time set to expire on 11/30/2016.

The standard offer available on this card is 50,000 bonus points, so with the increased offer you’re getting an extra 25,000 Hilton points. Plus the spending requirement is relatively low on this card which makes it easier to meet for many.


Note: Remember that you are only eligible to earn the welcome bonus once per lifetime on a specific American Express card product. This means that if you’ve had this same card before you may not be eligible to earn the bonus.


The Bottom Line

The American Express Hilton HHonors Credit Card is now offering a 75,000 Hilton points welcome bonus after spending $1,000 within the first three months.

This increased offer has been out before in the past, but it’s the highest bonus ever offers which makes it a good time to apply for the card since you can only earn Amex bonuses once per lifetime.

The card does not have an annual fee and makes a great card to keep open year-after-year to increase your average credit account age.

Apart from the sizable welcome bonus the card offers limited perks in my opinion, but earning the bonus alone and the fact that there is no annual fee makes it worth signing up.

Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card

Quick review: You'll earn 60,000 bonus points after spending $4,000 within the first 3 months of signing up. Plus continue to earn 2X points on travel and dining. The card does have a $95 annual fee.

Why we like it: For anyone new to travel rewards credit cards, this card is the best place to start. With a modest annual fee you still earn 2X points on travel and dining. You earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points that are extra valuable when you transfer them to transfer partners. Not to mention the 60,000 bonus point welcome bonus gets you off to a great start on earning free flights and hotel stays.

    • Tim, there are mixed reports of people successfully (or unsuccessfully) getting Amex to match a higher offer. The best route is to call in and ask to speak to a supervisor, then once you get them on the line request for an offer match. Hope it works out!
