Amex and Hilton Join Forces to Offer New Elite Travel Rewards Credit Cards

[Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017]

Frequent travelers, as well as folks who only travel occasionally, will benefit from the newest credit card offerings from American Express and Hilton. The American Express Hilton Honors co-branded credit card portfolio consists of four different cards, for both consumers and small businesses.

The Hilton Honors American Express card, the Hilton Honors American Express Ascend card, the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire card, and the Hilton Honors American Express Business card are each designed with a different target consumer in mind, from the entrepreneur to the leisure traveler. As Eva Reda, executive vice president of co-brand partnerships at American Express, explained, “whether it’s a business trip or a vacation with the family, our new suite of cards will help you get the most out of your Hilton Honors points and receive more perks, like lounge access and concierge service, while you travel.”

Different cards for different customers

The no-annual fee Hilton Honors American Express card carries no foreign transaction fees and offers seven reward points per dollar spent at Hilton properties worldwide. The card gives five points per dollar spent at grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations in the United States, and three points per dollar spent everywhere else. Cardholders get automatic Hilton Honors Silver status and can earn Gold status when they spend $20,000 in one calendar year.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Honors American Express Aspire card comes with a $450 annual fee, but offers 14 Honors points per dollar spent at Hilton properties, seven points per dollar spent on direct bookings with airlines or at amextravel.com, car rentals booked directly through rental companies, and on restaurant spending within the United States. Cardholders get automatic, complimentary Hilton Honors Diamond status, and they can spend one free weekend night at a Hilton property each year. If they spend at least $60,000 in purchases per year, they’ll get a second free night at a Hilton property.

For business owners, the Hilton Honors American Express Business card will let cardholders maximize their rewards related to business expenses, and gives access to the American Express OPEN platform designed for small business owners.
