Via Running with Miles and Million Mile Secrets, the initial spending bonus for the Hilton HHonors Surpass Card from American Express has been increased to 100,000 points! You are still required to spend $3,000 in 3 months and the $75 annual fee is not waived in the first year.
This is the historical high bonus for this card and is worth something in the neighborhood of $500 or more. I just reserved 3 nights at the Hilton Tokyo for 50,000 points/night and the ‘flexible’ rate for those nights was $401 each, making the 100,000 bonus worth $802 in this example.
See the original 1/28/17 Review for more details on the card, but use the links in this post to route to the 100,000 offer. Note: if you are approved, I will also receive 20,000 Hilton HHonors points, which would be fairly awesome for everyone involved, don’t you think?
