Earn 20k Hilton Points Via Referral Bonus


The public sign up offer for the Hilton HHonors Surpass Card from American Express is 75,000 Hilton points for spending $3,000 on the card in the first three months that you open it.

But there’s a way to get a better offer and help your friend earn a 20k bonus at the same time.

What to Do

  1. Find a friend with a Hilton HHonors Surpass Card from American Express.
  2. Give them this link to log into with their online Amex account info. They can create a referral link there for you to sign up for the card through.
  3. Sign up through your friend’s referral link. This will trigger a 20,000 point bonus for them.
  4. Spend $3,000 on the card in three months and you’ll earn a 100,000 point bonus.
  5. Pat yourself on the back because you earned 25,000 more Hilton points than you would have had you just googled Hilton HHonors Surpass Card.

Feel free to leave your referral link in the comments.

The Rest of the Benefits That Come With the Hilton Surpass Amex

  • Category bonuses:
    • 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 card confers automatic Gold status with Hilton, and Hilton elites get the fifth night free on award stays, which start at 5,000 points per night. Here’s some of our favorite…
  • Priority Pass Select Membership (access to over 900 lounges worldwide)

The card has a $75 annual fee that isn’t waived the first year, but I think these benefits not to mention the 100k sign up bonus outweigh it greatly.

Bottom Line

If you have a Hilton HHonors Surpass Card from American Express, you can create a referral link for the card by logging in here that will reward you 20,000 Hilton points when someone signs up. The sign up bonus offer your referral link should generate is 25,000 Hilton points higher than the public sign up bonus–100k vs 75k.

  1. I’ve had the surpass card for 15+ years and my supply of HHonors seems to be contantly multiplying – really easy to get points. The website only allows me to send email links. If you would like one, send me an email at jessica.flasche at uwalumni.com and I can get a referral link out to you. Thanks!

  2. Since referrals need to be sent to emails, if you would like a referral link, send an email to themice at verizon.net and I will send out the referral link.

    I have verified that the offer is
    Each friend can earn:
    100,000 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points after they spend $3,000 in purchases on the Card within their first 3 months of Card Membership.†

    and Gold status that comes with the card gets you breakfast, too.
