Hilton offers two American Express co-branded credit cards. One with no annual fee and the other with a $95 annual fee, but waived the first year. I want to show you how you can earn statement credits on both cards respectively that will actually allow you to make money just by using the card on purchases you’d be making anyways!
- Hilton HHonors™ Card from American Express (no annual fee)
- Hilton HHonors™ Surpass® Card from American Express ($75 annual fee)
If you’ve been keeping up on this blog for awhile you are probably well aware by now that I am a huge fan of making free money through the American Express statement credit offers, otherwise known as Amex Offers. These promotions typically require you to spend $X amount of money at a participating merchant to get $Y amount back as a statement credit. Since these are “American Express” offers, you can only use an American Express credit card to be eligible for the statement credit. Both of the Hilton credit cards listed below are American Express credit cards and are eligible for these offers. And you are able to receive the statement credits on multiple cards!
While I might be an extreme case since I take advantage of these offers quite often. I personally have received $915 back in statement credits over the past 23 months with just ONE of my Amex cards! With the Amex statement credit offers alone that means I average about $450 back a year (for that particular card)! This allows to me to justify the annual fee (if there is one) and “earn” money on top of it! So for the no annual fee Hilton credit card, any statement credits earned will be an added bonus and for the Hilton card with an annual it will allow you to make up the annual fee, plus potentially more. I personally have the no annual fee Hilton card and I love that a no annual fee not only gives me some benefits, but also helps me save money on purchases I’d be making anyways!
To check your savings to date, log into your AmericanExpress.com account, go to “Account Home”, at the bottom of the page on your cards information click “Offers For You”, and select “Savings”. Even through I’ve been participating in these Amex statement credits since 2011, my SPG card is only tracking back to April 2014.
While I love the American Express credit cards for many other reasons, taking advantage of offers to make extra money through statement credits is great! For the Hilton annual fee card it also helps with a piece of mind knowing you aren’t paying so much to have a card that you aren’t 100% sure whether or not the benefits will outweigh the fee.
