Bottom line

Ever since American Express updated its Hilton credit card lineup back in January 2018 to include new features and earning rates, the family of cards has come with welcome bonuses that have ranged from 50,000 to 150,000 Hilton Honors points. Now, you can earn up to $150 in statement credits too.

The 100,000 or 150,000 bonus points are enough to get you some amazing Hilton redemptions, including luxury stays like a night at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa. For a more budget-friendly redemption closer to home, there’s the refurbished Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles (I stayed at this property in 2020 for just 42,000 points per night).

You could also embrace the cold weather by hitting the slopes in Colorado with the Hilton DoubleTree in Vail starting at about 55,000 points per night in 2021. Also, remember that you’ll get a fifth night free on reward stays.

If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to apply for a Hilton card, now might be a great time. Keep in mind that Amex has a “one per card per lifetime” policy for earning welcome bonuses, so you may want to double-check that you’re eligible to earn this elevated bonus before you hit the apply button.
