Hilton Upgrade Offers Are Back! 150,000 Hilton Honors Points Up For Grabs
Readers let me know that the Hilton upgrade offers are back. We are seeing two different offers that people are being targeted for. Check your emails and Amex Offers section for either of these offers.
Remember that if you take one of these you would not be eligible for the welcome offer on the card for up to 4 years or more because of Amex’s “once per lifetime rule“. It is best for people that have already had the card since you are not disqualified for an upgrade offer if you have carried the card before.
Update 1/24/22: There were multiple reports in the Travel on Point(s) Facebook group that they received upgrade offers Sunday evening.
Details of the Offer
There are two upgrade offers available that we have seen. There is one to upgrade to the Aspire card and one to upgrade to the Surpass card. Let’s take a look at each offer.
Amex Surpass Upgrade Offer
The first offer is for an upgrade from the no fee Hilton to the Amex Surpass:
- Earn 130,000 Hilton Honors points after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months.
- The $95 annual fee is not waived.
Amex Aspire Upgrade Offer
People are also seeing an upgrade offer to the Amex Aspire card from the Surpass and the no fee Hilton card:
- Earn 150,000 Hilton Honors points after spending $4,000 within the first 3 months.
- The $450 annual fee is not waived
Both of these offers are pretty great. Mainly because they do not require a hard pull and you are eligible even if you recently (or currently) carry the card the offer is for. Another good thing is that any spend you have already done on the card should count towards the free night spend. So if you have $5,000 in spend on your no fee Hilton and upgrade to the Surpass you would only need to complete $10,000 more in spend, not $15,000, to earn the free night certificate.
