Amex Surpass

American Express Hilton Surpass has an annual fee of $75. However, the BEST offer right now gives you 100,000 Hilton points if you spend $3000 in the first 3 months + 1 Free Weekend Night after the first year. It is awesome.

To get a perspective of what you can do with 100,000 Hilton points, you can easily google Hilton Category 1 hotels, and you will get a long list of hotels that you can stay for 5000 points. That equals to 25 nights because if you stay 5 nights, you get one night free on points.

Here is a Google Maps of where you can stay at Category 1 and 2 hotels.

Or you can head to to search for anywhere you want to go.

This card also gives you the following benefits:

  • Complimentary Hilton GOLD Status and if you spend $40,000 annually on the card, you will get DIAMOND Status.
  • 12X Hilton Honors points per dollar spend at Hilton.
  • 6X Hilton Honors points per dollar spend at gas stations, groceries, and restaurants.
  • 3X on all purchases.
  • All Amex Standard Benefits.


I would sign up for this card due to the huge sign up bonus and the annual free night. This is a great bonus with 100,000 Hilton Honors points plus you get GOLD status without any stay at Hilton.

Let me know if you have any question.
