Hilton Hotels rolled out a 100,000 point bonus offer which prompted Marriott Hotels to do the same (and then some).

If you like your plumbing and sleeping quarters inside, these great opportunities are for a limited time.

The Highlights:

  • The American Express Hilton Surpass card has increase its bonus offer to 100,000 Hilton Honors points if you spend $3,000 on it in the first 3 months the account is open. There is a $75 annual fee that is not waived.  Earn a free weekend night on your anniversary date of card approval.
  • This is not to be confused with the American Express Hilton Honors card that has an offer of 80,000 Hilton Honors points when you spend $2,000 on it in the first 3 months it’s open.  It has no annual fee, but also no free stay after keeping the card for another year.

If you are looking to build up points, you could get both (I’m guilty of that).  Keep in mind that you can only get an American Express sign up bonus once in a lifetime for each different card.

Starting in April, a total of 11 people can pool Hilton Honors points together for redemption.  That’s huge!  If you can meet the spending requirements, this is an excellent for friends and families to get these cards and travel in style!

Use Hilton’s calculator to figure out how far you can stretch your points.

  • Marriott Rewards card increased their offer to their highest ever:  100,000 Marriott Rewards points when you spend $5,000 in first 3 months the card is open.  Add an authorized user and get another 7,500 points.  Get a card for anyone (you don’t have to actually give it to them).  $85 annual fee is not waived.  Enjoy 1 Free Night Stay at a Category 1-5 hotel every year after your account anniversary date.

Hotel aficionados know Marriott Rewards points can be transferred to Starwood Points at a 3-to-1 ratio.  This option gives you a way to build up Starwood points by getting a Marriott card.  More on Starwood here.

Keep in mind that you must put 24 months between receiving sign up bonuses on the same Chase card.  This Marriott card is a Chase card.  If you have had this Marriott card previously and cancelled it, make sure it has been 2 years since you got the bonus.

Looking for a quick way to meet spending requirements?

Taxes are due April 18thPay1040.com charges a fee of 1.87% of the payment amount to pay your income tax with a credit card.

I don’t normally suggest paying a fee to use a card.  I just make that suggestion as an easy way to meet the spending requirement.

Case in point: I owe the Feds $3,105 by April 18th for my 2017 taxes.  I’m going to use my new American Express Hilton Surpass card to pay it.  The spending requirement on that card is $3,000 to get 100,000 bonus points.  The 1.87% fee for paying $3,105 with a credit card will come to $58.06.  In one fell swoop, I will meet the spending requirement and get 100,000 Hilton points.
