[Expired] There’s currently some good offers out there if you’re looking to add Hilton HHonors points to your account. Citi Hilton is offering a 75K points bonus and Amex is offering 75K bonus for the basic Hilton card and 100K for the Hilton Surpass card. They’re all the highest offers ever, so you have lots of options.
But there’s another option that you might want to take into consideration if you don’t want another hard pull or are limited by the 4 card Amex rule. You can upgrade to the Amex Hilton Surpass card and still receive the 100,000 bonus points. The offer is the same as the regular Suprass offer.
Apply for an upgrade and get 100,000 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 in purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. Terms Apply. Offer expires 05/04/2016. Check out the upgrade link.
Looks like you need to have had the basic Hilton card for at least a year in order to upgrade to Hilton Surpass and receive the 100K bonus. If you have had the card for over a year then you should definitely do this instead of applying.
You should also see this offer in you Amex account.
Keep in mind that this card has a $75 annual fee which is not waived the first year. Approximately 45 days after your account is upgraded, you will be charged a prorated Annual Membership Fee for your new Card based on the time remaining until your next account anniversary date. You will also receive a prorated refund for any annual fee paid on your previous Card.
