Up to 50% Bonus on Amex Transfers to Hilton! (Targeted)
American Express and Hilton are out with a new targeted transfer bonus, offering between a 10%- to 50%-boost to your Hilton account.
Transfer bonuses like this one are an easy way to earn free points and miles. And while Hilton Honors points generally aren’t the most valuable in the world, this transfer bonus first reported by Doctor of Credit certainly helps.
American Express Membership Rewards points normally transfer to Hilton on a 1:2 basis – so if you transfer 1,000 Amex points, you’d get 2,000 Hilton Honors points. With this bonus, that could be as much as 3,000.
Log in to your American Express account to see what bonus you’re targeted for. Keep in mind that you need a card that earns Membership Rewards points like the Platinum Card from American Express and the American Express Gold Card – a co-branded Delta American Express card won’t cut it.
There are generally far better options to transfer your Amex points than Hilton, but this transfer bonus could be useful. That’s especially true if you’re trying to top off your account to get the points you need to make a redemption.
And there’s no denying Hilton Honors has its strengths. For starters, they can be great when you’re trying to book a hotel room for a major event – like the Masters golf tournament, for instance – that drives cash rates up. While the cash prices skyrocket, the award prices using Hilton points are far more stable – and are often still available using points. It’s a sweet spot that few other hotel programs can compete with.
And Hilton has one of the best features of any hotel program. You can quickly and easily combine your Hilton Honors points with up to 10 other members. Combined with this transfer bonus, it’s a great way to stockpile points to use for a stay that you otherwise wouldn’t have enough points for on your own.
There are plenty of instances where this Hilton transfer bonus could come in handy. Log in to your American Express account and see what you can get!
