Hilton HHonors Amex holders: This email ain’t no spam

A popular hotel credit card this year has been the Hilton HHonors no-fee card from American Express, due to its 75K-point signup bonus after only $1K in spend.

I signed up for this card before I realized how choosy I should be about picking up credit cards, but for a no-fee card that gets me lifetime Silver status with Hilton and access to Amex offers, I don’t regret it too much.

For those of you that have it, check your email for a little surprise:

This 10K bonus is worth around $50, but it could be worth more if you use it for two nights free in a category 1 Hilton hotel, or one night in a category 2.

If you have someone you trust who will allow it, adding them as an authorized user is simple and does not require a hard credit pull. Here is the info required:

As a note, being an authorized user on someone’s account does likely count toward your 5/24 limit with Chase. For more info on how adding an authorized user affects your credit, check out TPG’s post here.

For more about how to stay in really nice hotels for free, here’s a post I did earlier this week.

I’d love to hear your thoughts or if you’ll take advantage of this offer!

*Update: Looks like the big blogs caught on to this offer…

  1. I think it’s the first time I’ve been called a big blog. Thanks 🙂

    You should probably include the link in the post. Looks like stone people didn’t get the email but are still able to get the bonus.
