Best Ever Bonus For Amex Hilton Surpass, 100K Points Plus Free Night

American Express has released a new best ever bonus for the Hilton Surpass card. The offer has been at 100K recently, but now it also comes with a free night.

Amex Hilton Surpass

Limited Time Offer Earn 100,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 in purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. Plus, earn a free weekend night award after your first anniversary of Card Membership.† Offer Ends 5/31/2017.

If you’re looking for Hilton Honors points then this is a great opportunity. Once you’re done with the spending requirement, you’ll have an extra 18,000 points (if you do your spending at supermarkets) so the total with come to 118,000 Hilton Honors Points.

The card comes with a $75 annual fee which is not waived for the first year.

This is the best earning card for paid stays at Hilton Hotels with 12X Hilton HHonors Bonus Points per dollar so if you often pay for Hilton Hotels this would be a great card.

Amex Hilton Surpass comes with HHonors Gold status (free breakfast) and if you spend $40,000 on eligible purchases on your Card in a calendar year and you earn HHonors Diamond status through the end of the next calendar year.

What Are HHonors 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.

Free Weekend Night Award

The free weekend night award is a great addition to the sign up bonus, which makes this offer the best ever. But, since it is part of the sign up bonus, and not a card benefit, current card members don’t qualify for the free night.

Hilton will send you an email to the address listed on your Hilton Honors account within [6-8 weeks] after the first anniversary date of the Card account. This means that you’ll have to pay that second annual $75 fee in order to receive the free night. You should easily get 2-2 times that value, so it’s worth keeping this card for 2 years.

The free weekend night award can be redeemed at participating properties in the Hilton Honors portfolio for a weekend night. The free weekend night award must be redeemed for stays consumed within 12 months after the date of issuance.

Free weekend night includes all applicable taxes; however, the Basic Card Member may be responsible for payment of additional mandatory resort fees at participating Hilton Hotels & Resorts where resort fees are applicable.


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.

25,000 Points per Referral

If you 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 25,000 bonus points per referral, up to 80,000 points per calendar year.

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 in your comment.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

This is a great offer, and by far the best ever for the Amex Hilton Surpass card. If you’re eligible, you should definitely jump on it. Maybe get the no-fee card as well since you’re at it. It should work even better for those with  Diamond Status that gets you upgrades and breakfast at lots of Hilton properties.

Strangely though, the card still shows the “double H” Hilton Honors 🙂
