This card also provides complimentary Hilton Silver status for as long as you are a cardmember, with the opportunity to earn Hilton Gold status.
75,000 Hilton HHonors points is more than enough points to get you two free nights at the Hilton Orlando, which starts at 30,000 points per night this summer.

Is It Worth It?
Considering that this card doesn’t carry an annual fee, it’s a great card to have for the complimentary Hilton Silver status, which gets you a 15% earnings bonus on stays, the fifth night free on award redemptions, late check-out and more.
