  • Special bonus: Complimentary Hilton Honors Silver status for cardholder.

1. As the elite Hilton member, you will receive every 5th night free on Standard Room Reward stays of 5 nights or more (up to 4 free nights on a stay of 20 consecutive nights).

2. After having this card over 12 months, you can upgrade it to AMEX Hilton Honors Surpass Card to earn 50,000 points (no credit hard-pull).

Restrictions when you apply:

1. You can only apply for one AMEX credit card per day, but the rule does not apply to AMEX charge cards. If you apply one credit card and one charge card on the same day, AMEX are going to combine hard-pull (for credit report). Therefore we suggest the reader apply for another AMEX charge card at the same time when applying AMEX credit card, so the applicant will only be hard-pulled once.

2. Please check the status from this link if you do not get instant approval. We strongly suggest you to call AMEX Reconsider Line to ask them about reconsidering the application if you do not get instant approval or be denied. Generally, you will have a chance to be approved after providing the information they need when calling them. The phone number of AMEX Reconsideration Line is 1-800-567-1083.


In order to redeem for Hilton reward night, you may need a huge amount of points for redemption. Therefore, applying for Citi Hilton credit card at the same time will be suggested. This card provides higher category spending bonus than Citi Hilton. Although this card can be upgraded to AMEX HHS to earn bonus without credit hard-pull, it is not suggested to do it before applying AMEX HHS since welcome bonus from newly applied AMEX credit cards can only be earned once in a lifetime.
