American Express recently increased the sigh-up bonus on the Hilton Surpass Card to an all-time high 100,000 Hilton HHonors points.

The offer was for a limited time and there is no longer a public application link, but now it is possible to refer a friend for this same 100,000 point offer. Plus, you’ll earn 15,000 Hilton points for very friend you refer!

The person who applies through your referral link will receive the 100,000 points bonus and you’ll receive a referral bonus of 15,000 points for each person you refer.

Note: The 100,000 Amex Hilton Surpass Card sign-up bonus offer is currently only available through someones referral link.
