Three Hilton Amex cards have been offering elevated welcome bonuses since mid-May, but those will come to an end next week, on Wednesday June 27. So if you’ve been holding off on applying but could use the points for an upcoming Hilton award stay, now’s the time to act.

The three cards currently offering limited-time welcome bonuses are the Hilton Honors Card from American Express, the Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express and the Hilton Honors American Express Business Card. Here’s a rundown of the welcome bonus and card perks of each.

Hilton Honors Amex

If you want to build up your Hilton Honors rewards balance without paying an annual fee, this card’s your best bet. It’s pretty light on perks, but it does offer complimentary Silver status in the hotel’s elite program.

Current welcome bonus: 75,000 Hilton Honors points after you spend $1,000 in the first three months (worth $450 according to TPG’s valuations)

Standard welcome bonus: 50,000 Hilton Honors points after you spend $1,000 in the first three months (worth $300 according to TPG’s valuations)

Annual fee: None

Perks: Earn 7x points at Hilton hotels; earn 5x points at US restaurants, US supermarkets and US gas stations; earn 3x everywhere else. Get complimentary Hilton Honors Silver status and get Hilton Honors Gold status after spending $20,000 on the card in a calendar year. No foreign transaction fees.

Hilton Honors Ascend Amex

This card’s a good option for those looking to rake in the Hilton points without paying $450 a year (the annual fee of the top-tier Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express), and it comes with complimentary Gold status at Hilton along with a free weekend night reward for hitting a spending tier in a calendar year, to boot.

Current welcome bonus: 100,000 Hilton Honors points after you spend $3,000 in the first three months (worth $600 based on TPG’s valuations), plus a free weekend night after your first anniversary of cardmembership.

Standard welcome bonus: Previously, the bonus didn’t include the free weekend night at the first anniversary and the points were tiered: 75,000 points after $2,000 spent in the first three months, plus another 25,000 points after another $1,000 spent in the first six months.

Annual fee: $95

Perks: Earn 12x points at Hilton hotels; 6x points at US restaurants, US supermarkets and US gas stations; and 3x points everywhere else. Get complimentary Hilton Honors Gold status and get Diamond status by spending $40,000 on the card in a calendar year. Earn a free weekend night after spending $15,000 on the card in a calendar year. No foreign transaction fees.

Hilton Honors Business Amex

Hilton’s business card offers 6x points on a wide range of purchase categories — from travel to telephone services — and if you hit two annual spending tiers you’ll get two free weekend night rewards. It also offers 10 free Priority Pass airport lounge passes every calendar year.

Current welcome bonus: 125,000 Hilton Honors points after you spend $5,000 in the first three months (worth $750 based on TPG’s valuations)

Standard welcome bonus: Previously, this bonus was tiered for a total of 100,000 points: 75,000 points after $2,000 spent in the first three months, plus another 25,000 points after another $1,000 spent in the first six months (worth a total of $600 based on TPG’s valuations)

Annual fee: $95

Perks: Earn 12x points at Hilton hotels; earn 6x points at US gas stations, on wireless telephone services purchased directly from US service providers, US purchases for shipping, at US restaurants, on flights booked directly with airlines or through Amex Travel and on car rentals booked directly from select car rental companies; earn 3x points on everything else. Get complimentary Hilton Honors Gold status, and get Diamond status when you spend $40,000 on the card in a calendar year. Get a weekend night reward after spending $15,000 on the card in a calendar year and second one after spending $60,000 in a calendar year. 10 free Priority Pass visits each year. No foreign transaction fees.

Bottom Line

We don’t know how, exactly, these welcome bonuses will look after June 27, but it’s pretty much guaranteed they’ll be lower than what’s currently available. If you want to round up as many points as possible to book a Hilton award stay, now’s an optimal time to apply for one of these cards.

And don’t forget the Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express: that card’s offering 100,000 points after you spend $4,000 in the first three months — and that welcome bonus isn’t scheduled to expire on June 27. While the Aspire has a $450 annual fee, it earns 14x points on purchases at participating Hilton hotels or resorts and includes a $250 Hilton resort statement credit each year, a $250 airline fee credit each year and many other premium benefits.
