What’s the deal with 85k HiltonHHonors?

We last posted about this great card in April, when we let you know that the card had a sign-up bonus of 80,000 Hilton HHonors.

Now it’s available with a sign-up bonus of 85,000 points when you apply here by July 31st, 2015!

Tell me about the HiltonHHonors Surpass American Express credit card…

Here’s the lowdown on the card:

  • Earn 85,000 bonus Hilton HHonors when you spend $3,000 in 3 months and pay the annual fee of $75 (not waived).
  • Get free HHonors Gold status with your Surpass card (which includes free breakfast at Hilton properties).
  • Earn HHonors Diamond status when you spend $40,000 on eligible purchases in a calendar year.
  • Earn up to 12 Hilton HHonors per dollar spent on eligible Hilton purchases.
  • Earn 6 Hilton HHonors per dollar spent at US supermarkets, restaurants and gas stations.
  • Earn 3 Hilton HHonors for all other eligible purchases on your card.

With 85,000 points, you can stay in one of fifty Hilton properties worldwide for up to 17 nights! These Category 1 hotels – many of them in Egypt, China, Malaysia, Turkey and Mexico – cost just 5,000 points per night and there are some US and UK hotels available, too.

We checked out the Hilton Sharms Waterfall Resort in Egypt, which is rated 4.5 on TripAdvisor, for a one night stay in July.


A twin guest room with garden-views, a balcony, seating area, patio doors and a workstation is just 5,000 HHonors per night:


There are better value hotel stays out there using your points, but we wanted to let you in on how to use your 85,000 points for the longest available stay.

If you fancy one luxurious overnight with your points, you could instead blow 70,000 or more points on a Category 10 stay; it costs from 80,000 HHonors a night at the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel in New York City’s Times Square or the Conrad Koh Samui in Thailand.

How do I get the 85k HiltonHHonors deal?

Use this link to apply for the Surpass card by July 31st, 2015, as the public link only currently offers a 60k bonus. If this link has expired, apply here instead.


What else do I need to know about the 85k HiltonHHonors deal?

The usual public offer is 60,000 points and the highest offer we’ve seen before now is 80,000, so get your skates on and apply while the sign-up bonus is this big!
