Amex Hilton Card Has New Best Ever 80K Offer And No Annual Fee

The Amex Hilton Card is back with the a new best ever sign up bonus of 80,000 points. The previous highest offer was 75K, so this is a small increase. To receive the bonus all you need to do is spend $2,000 in the first three months. The Amex Hilton Card doesn’t have an annual fee.

Amex Hilton Card

The card comes with HHonors silver status. If you have the Amex Platinum card you automatically get Gold status, or you might have been matched recently for the Gold or Diamond status.

If you signed up for the lesser 60K or 70K offers, contact Amex and ask to be matched with this offer. They might not give you the full difference but you might get a few thousand points for a few minutes of work.

What Are Honors Points Worth?

Hilton points are not the most valuable out there, but this is still a great offer for a no fee card. I’d say they’re worth around 0.4 cent a piece so this would be a bonus of about $320.

Hilton Honors program changed recently. There’s no more hotel categories. You can read about the changes here. You can check how many points a hotel stay will cost you with this new price check tool.


You can only receive personal Amex card bonuses once per lifetime, so if you have or have had the card in the past, you are not eligible.

20,000 Points per Referral

If you already have the card then you can refer friends and family to sign up for this best ever offer. Go to this link and log in to access the referral page. You will earn 20,000 bonus points per referral, up to 80,000 points per calendar year. This is also a highest ever, it used to be only 15K.

You can post you referrals in the comments below, but you need to share the post on Facebook or Twitter and provide a link to the post.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

This bonus is not much different from the previous highest bonus of 75K. You need to spend $1,000 more compared to that bonus and you’ll get an extra 5x Hilton points on that spend. Nothing to brag about, but considering that most readers can easily do this spending (maybe at a supermarket), it’s a decent return.

There’s also a 100K bonus on the Hilton Surpass card. You’ll need to spend $3,000 for that bonus and also pay a $75 fee.

  1. Danny, I successfully applied for the Amex Hilton Surpass in July 2016. If I were to apply for this card, will I still get the 80k bonus? Thanks.
