Check Out The Hilton HHonors Surpass Card from American Express

Written by adamavatar

One of the elite names in hotel and resorts has teamed with the one of the largest credit card issuers to offer a card that heaps benefits on its members. The Hilton HHonors Surpass card from American Express gives cardholders easy ways to collect reward points as well as discounts and special offers from Hilton Hotels.

Members can quickly collect as many as 60,000 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points, with 40,000 given after making just one purchase with the card and another 20,000 for spending $3,000 in the first three months. All combined it’s enough to net them two free reward nights at Hilton Hotels. After this initial period, members can earn up to nine bonus points for every dollar they spend at Hilton locations worldwide. They can earn six points per dollar at gas stations, drug stores and other retailers. And this is where the Hilton HHonors really sets itself apart — while nearly all other cards give one point per dollar on normal purchases, the Hilton HHonors Surpass card gives three points for every dollar charged.

The card also gives its members a free year of HHonors Gold Elite Status, which comes with other benefits like a twenty-five-percent bonus credit on all points earned. Cardholders also have access to upgraded accommodations with Gold Elite status and, if they spend $20,000 the first year, they automatically maintain this status. Should the member spend $40,000 in the first year they are automatically upgraded to Diamond Elite status, which gives a fifty-percent credit on bonus points, access to the Executive Floor lounge at Hilton hotels and resorts and a 48-hour reservation guarantee.

The card has a $75 annual fee and there is no fee for additional cards. The Hilton HHonors Surpass card also has a variable rate APR of either 15.24 percent , 17.24 percent or 19.24 percent.
