Details of the New Hilton Welcome Bonus
From time to time, credit card issuers publish promotional offers to encourage new credit card registrations. On Thursday, Amex announced such an offer for its Hilton credit card. Here’s how they’re sorted by card:
Hilton Honors American Express Card: Earn 100,000 bonus points on $1,000 or more in purchases within three months of account opening, plus a claimed credit of up to $100 in eligible Hilton purchases in the first 12 months.
Hilton Honors American Express Super Card: Earn 130,000 bonus points on purchases of $1,000 or more within three months of account opening, plus up to $130 on qualifying Hilton purchase statements within the first 12 months.
Hilton Honors American Express Business Card: Earn 130,000 bonus points on purchases of $1,000 or more within three months of account opening, plus up to $130 on qualifying Hilton purchase statements within the first 12 months.
To give you an idea of what it’s worth, Investopedia research shows that Hilton Honors points are worth an average of 0.48 cents each. So, 100,000 points are worth about $480 and 130,000 points are worth about $624.
However, you can get more value out of your rewards, especially if you’re flexible with your travel plans and willing to do some research to find reward nights with higher redemption value. Hilton stays for as little as 5,000 points per night.
