The Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card has officially changed its name — harking back to its original “Surpass” monicker — and Hilton and AmEx are marking the occasion by increasing the welcome offers on some of their co-branded cards for a limited time.
The product will now be known as the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card, and through Aug. 28, 2019, the following new offers will apply to eligible cardholders:
- Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card: Earn 130,000 Hilton Honors bonus points and a free weekend night after spending $4,000 in eligible purchases on the card in the first four months of card membership. The previous offer on the card — when it was called the Ascend — was for 125,000 points after $2,000 in eligible spending within the first three months of card membership. (This offer is for first-time applicants for the Surpass card; those who previously had an Ascend card are not eligible.)
- Hilton Honors American Express Card: Earn 90,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 in eligible purchases in the first three months of card membership. The previous offer was for 75,000 points after $1,000 in eligible spending within the first three months of card membership.
- Terms apply.
Note that while these bonus offers are larger, so, too, are the minimum spending requirements to receive them.
The offer on the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card remains the same: Earn 150,000 points after spending $4,000 in eligible purchases within the first three months of card membership. Terms apply.
