Besides this 5K bonus offer for the no fee card, Amex is also sending out emails with a targeted offer for 10,000 Hilton HHonors points for adding an authorized user to the Amex Hilton Surpass credit card. To get the bonus, the authorized user must spend $1,000 of eligible spending by the end of the first 3 months of Card Membership, based on the date of the Additional Card approval.
The offer is targeted, so check your emails to see if you have it. Please send me a link if you were targeted. The offer for 10,000 Bonus Points expires on 11/30/2016.
Bonus points will appear on the Basic Card Member’s Hilton HHonors Card statement 8-12 weeks after Additional Card Members have reached the spend threshold.
Not the best incentive to add an authorized user, since 10,000 Hilton points are worth about 45, and you have to spend $1,000 to get it. But it could be useful if you need some extra Hilton points toward a redemption.
Terms & Conditions
The offer for 10,000 Bonus Points expires on 11/30/2016. The Basic Card Member is limited to a one-time receipt of 5,000 Bonus Points through this offer. Additional Card Members must use the additional Hilton HHonors Surpass Card to complete $1,000 of eligible spending by the end of the first 3 months of Card Membership, based on the date of the Additional Card approval. Bonus points will appear on the Basic Card Member’s Hilton HHonors Surpass Card statement 8-12 weeks after Additional Card Members have reached the spend threshold.
Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. In rare instances, the period for the Additional Card Member to spend $500 may be shorter than 3 months if there is a delay in receiving their Additional Card. Also, purchases may fall outside of the 3 month period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date they made the transaction. (For example, if they buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped). For questions regarding your or their Card account, you or the Additional Card Member can call the number on the back of the Card. To be eligible to receive Bonus Points, Basic Card Member’s account must not be cancelled or in default at time of bonus fulfillment. If the application for an Additional Card is not approved by 11/30/2016, you will not be eligible for the 5,000 Bonus Points offer even if the application is approved. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time.
