Hilton Hotels has two American Express consumer cards, a no annual fee and a $95 annual fee version (with more perks of course). There is also a business card version. Each person can only get one welcome offer, per card in your entire lifetime, so it’s best to apply during one of these temporary bump-ups. (You could get all three of these welcome offers separately, but only one per card per person per lifetime.)

What are Hilton Honor points worth? The best value is from booking free hotel nights or using their “Points & Money” option where you pay with a combination of Hilton points and cash. Hilton has some really nice properties, but the value varies from hotel to hotel. I just ran a search and for the same 60,000 Hilton points, I could book rooms that cost $320 or $532 cash. I’ve seen some valuations around 0.6 cents per point, which I think is fair on average, but I would be more conservative at 0.5 cents a point. That would make 90,000 points = $450 value and 130,000 points = $650 value towards Hilton hotel stays.

The good part of Hilton points is that they have so many different hotel brands, from business-class DoubleTree to luxury Waldorf Astoria. Hilton also lets you transfer and pool points with other with other family or household members. As long as you keep them active (once every 12 months), I do like to keep some around. These credit cards are good at creating activity, but here’s another tip on how to keep Hilton points active.

Bottom line. Hilton American Express cards offer regular Hilton customers a good opportunity to earn additional points towards free Hilton hotel stays as well as additional perks like status upgrades. The best time to apply for a Hilton co-branded American Express card is during a limited-time increase to their welcome offers. This is because American Express has changed their policy to only allow each person to get a welcome bonus once per card per lifetime.

  1. This card is a keeper as well IMO. Pays for itself in free breakfast if you travel with Hilton

  2. Great, thanks. This card should get us hotel rooms for next summers family vacation. 🙂

  3. Thank you Jonathan

    With $95 annual fee each year, does the card provide a free night for each year (like the Marriot, IHG, and Hyatt cards)?

    • With the Surpass, you get a Weekend Night Reward certificate every year you spend $15,000 on purchases in a calendar year. It is valid on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night. There are no category restrictions on the award (as there is on other cards like Hyatt), so you can use it at some pretty nice properties including some expensive Hiltons in prime spots and also some Conrad and Waldorf Astoria hotels. There are some exclusions, as listed here:

  4. This card is a keeper as noted by other comment. In addition to free breakfast, after 15k spend you get a free night yearly (at least for me that’s easy living in the Bay Area). Between that and the normal points earn it’s a great % back worth of value.
