Limited-Time Hilton Credit Card Offers — Earn Up to 130,000 Bonus Points & a Free Weekend Night

INSIDER SECRET: When you have any level of Hilton status, you get the fifth night free on award stays, and you get complimentary Hilton status with any Amex Hilton credit card.

Now through August 28, 2019, there are limited-time, increased offers for the following Amex Hilton credit cards:

These increased bonuses aren’t the highest we’ve seen in terms of the bonus point you can earn. Both the Hilton Business card and the Surpass/Ascend card have had 150,000-point bonuses in the past and the Hilton Honors card has had a bonus of 100,000 points before. But when you consider how valuable the free weekend night is, the welcome offers for the Hilton Surpass and Hilton Business cards are the most valuable I’ve ever seen. Because Amex only lets you earn an intro offer on a card once per lifetime you’ll always want to apply when the deals are at an all-time best, so I wouldn’t hesitate to jump on these offers.

The Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express offer still is the same as before, a 150,000-point bonus you can earn after spending $4,000 in the first three months of account opening.

Increased Hilton Credit Card Offers

Although there is no longer an official Hilton award chart, there is a “Points Explorer,” which, in theory, should give you a price range for each hotel. In practice, it’s not always accurate.

Hilton hotels vary in price from 5,000 points per night to 95,000 points per night. There is at least one Hilton location where standard award nights start at 120,000 points. If you need more points, check out our guide on how to earn Hilton Honors points and be sure you’re always making the best use of the Hilton points you already have.

Also, Hilton’s free weekend night awards can be much easier to use than that free nights you earn with other cards because they are capped to a certain points limit or hotel category. You can use your free weekend night as long as the hotel has a standard room available and it’s a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night. There are also ~40 all-inclusive and “distinctive” Hilton properties where your free weekend night can’t be used (and they can’t bee used at Hampton hotels in China).
