The Offers

Credit card links have been removed from posts and added to the menu bar at the top of every page of MileValue under the heading Top Travel Credit Cards.

The Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature Card offers 75,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 in the first three months.

The card earns at least 2x Hilton points per dollar spent, so meeting the minimum spending requirement earns 79,000 total Hilton points. Category bonuses are:

  • 6 HHonors Points for every $1 spent on hotel stays within the Hilton Portfolio
  • 3 HHonors Points for every $1 spent on supermarkets, drugstores, and gas stations
  • 2 HHonors Points for every $1 spent on all other purchases

The Hilton HHonors Surpass Credit Card from American Express offers 100,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 in the first three months.

It earns at least 3x points per dollar spent, so you will have at least 109,000 Hilton points after completing its minimum spending requirements. Category bonuses are:

  • 12 HHonors Points for every $1 spent on hotel stays within the Hilton Portfolio
  • 6 HHonors Points for every $1 spent on restaurants, supermarkets, and gas stations
  • 3 HHonors Points for every $1 spent on all other purchases

The 79,000 from the Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature Card plus the 109,000 from the AMEX is 188,000 total Hilton points after spending $5,000 in the next three months.
