Hilton’s co-branded American Express cards usually offer nice introductory bonuses, but now we’re seeing the sweetest ever.

The annual toll-free Hilton Honors American Express Card makes credit card bonus history with its “Free Nights Faster” promotion. You will earn 70,000 Hilton Honors bonus points more one free night after spending $1,000 in eligible card purchases within the first three months of card membership (conditions apply).

At press time, Hilton’s largest portfolio of hotels and resorts spans 18 brands, from Waldorf Astoria to Curio Collection, with more than 6,700 properties in 122 countries. Hilton Honors points can be redeemed for stays at any of these hotels, where standard rooms cost between 5,000 points per night and 120,000 points per night, depending on the hotel. A free night can be used for a standard room at any property, even one that costs 120,000 points per night. This means that, if used correctly, this current Hilton Credit Card Welcome Bonus could be worth up to 190,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points.

Here’s why you should jump on this opportunity now, before it’s gone.

An unrivaled bonus and the lowest spend threshold ever

Apart from the fact that this cushy bonus is the highest ever, acquiring it is easier than ever. Generally, Hilton credit cards offer great introductory bonuses, but they require substantial spending to fully reach them. For example, the previous top bonus for this card required spending $5,000 in total on purchases in the first six months to earn full points. With the current offer, just spend $1,000 in the first three months to get the bonus.

No annual fees but many advantages

Another special feature of this promotion is that it is on a card with no annual fee (see rates and fees). However, a $0 annual fee doesn’t mean the card skimps on benefits. In fact, it’s the opposite. The card earns seven points per dollar on eligible Hilton purchases, five points per dollar at US restaurants, US supermarkets and US gas stations, and three points per dollar on other eligible purchases. So no matter what you load onto the card, you’ll earn a minimum of three points per dollar spent. This allows you to accumulate points quickly.

Plus, cardholders automatically receive Hilton Honors Silver Tier 1 status. While all Hilton Honors members can get free Wi-Fi these days, Silver status brings additional perks like a 20% bonus on stays, free bottled water, and the ability to participate in the ” Fifth night free” from Hilton Honor. where your fifth night is free when booking four nights with points.

Another record

It’s not just the Hilton Honors American Express card that is making history. The same goes for its sister card, Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Cardwith its own best-ever welcome offer of up to an equivalent of 250,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points, broken down as follows: You will earn 130,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after spending $2,000 in the first three months card subscription, plus a free night reward, redeemable for a standard night up to 120,000 points (conditions apply).

This card has an annual fee of $95 (see rates and fees), but its benefits are more like those of a high annual fee card. For starters, income multipliers in some key categories make it easy to rack up points quickly through spending. Earn 12 points per dollar at Hilton Portfolio properties, 6 points per dollar at US restaurants, US supermarkets and US gas stations, and 3 points per dollar spent on everything else. Then you can get 10 free lounge visits at over 1,300 Priority Pass lounges for every year enrolled in Priority Pass Select membership via the Surpass card (registration required). No other personal credit card at this fee level offers such lounge access.

Finally, you will have automatically earn Hilton Honors Gold status with membership card. Gold status benefits include the following for stays within the Hilton umbrella: room upgrades based on available space, free Wi-Fi, and daily onsite food and beverage credits. (The amount of this food and beverage credit varies by brand, but for luxury brands like Waldorf Astoria, it costs $50 per room per day, assuming two guests per room.)
