Sorry, this deal is no longer available. Do you want to be alerted about new deals as they’re published? Click here to subscribe to Frequent Miler's Instant Posts by email.

American Express is sending out targeted emails offering bonus points or statement credits on dining spend. With either 5% back in statement credits or 10x bonus points on offer, this is definitely worth registering for if you’re targeted.

Amex Hilton Surpass 10x 10,000 Bonus Points

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Expires October 31, 2019.
  • (Wording below is for the Hilton offer; the terms for the $10 statement credit offer is likely similar as that has a limit of 5 too)
  • Enroll and earn 2,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after you spend $200 on eligible purchases at U.S. restaurants on your Hilton Honors American Express Card (the “Purchase Requirement”), starting from the time you complete enrollment through October 31, 2019 (“Purchase Period”), up to 5 times for a maximum of 10,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points. Enrollment period ends on 10/31/2019.
  • If you reach the purchase requirement, the Hilton Honors Bonus Points will be credited to your Hilton Honors account within 8 weeks after October 31, 2019.
  • Eligible purchases to meet the Purchase Requirement of this offer include those made by both the Basic and Additional Card Members on the Card Account.
  • Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person payments, or purchases of any cash equivalents.
  • Purchases may fall outside of the Purchase Period (and therefore not be eligible for the Bonus Points) in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you make a purchase online, the purchase date may be the shipping date.)

Quick Thoughts

I received this email on one of my Hilton Surpass cards which is a great card to get it on. That’s because the Surpass card already earns 6x at US restaurants, so every $200 spent on US dining will earn 16x Hilton Honors points when taking into account the 10x bonus points from this offer.

It looks like there are variants of this offer, such as getting a $10 statement credit when spending $200. Interestingly, when viewing the email from Amex on my laptop, it lists the 10x offer. When viewing it on my cellphone though, one of the images in that same email displays the $10 statement credit offer.

Amex Hilton $10

Clicking on that image links to the 10x offer though, so it’s sadly not possible to double dip and earn both 10x points and a $10 statement credit when spending $200.

This is an even better deal if you spend a lot on dining as you can earn the bonus points or statement credits five times, so it’s valid on up to $1,000 of dining spend. With this offer running for just over three months, that gives quite a lot of time to try maxing it out if you’re interested.

It’s definitely worth trying to enroll in this offer even if you don’t receive a targeted email. I received an email about this offer, but my wife didn’t. Despite that, I was able to enroll her Surpass card for the offer as well.

If anyone has a link to the $10 statement credit version of the offer, please could you share the enrollment link below. Please also let us know if you receive some other variation of the offer.

HH Points are the skypesos of hotel reward programs….they set a bad example, do not bother doing anything that costs $$ to earn Hilton points….and before you just ignore me as a hater, let me say I have belonged to 10 different hotel loyalty programs over the years, have spent 3 million+ Hilton points, and knew they were over with when they did away with standard award pricing and went to a “whatever we want” pricing scheme.

So would you say stay away, particularly if I can get 3X on the CSR instead? I was given advice that since I have close to 300k in HIlton points, to try to get to 380,000 points, since when I hit that, I can stay at a 95k (max cost) per night property for 4 nights and get the 5th night free at a really nice resort.

Just noticed the quick thoughts CC pitch and wanted to say that the old surpass had 6X grocery which allowed gift card purchases at $120 for 10k and a few extra bucks to liquidate them as money orders…back then, 60k points was enough for a property worth 2-5 times as much. Now you have “peak pricing” and blackouts galore, the CC best grocery bonus is 5%, the CC welcome bonuses would have to be twice what they are now to take just the first round of devaluation in points….Hilton needs to come back from the dark side and make their program better. Wouldn’t it be nice if we weren’t all bovoyed year after year with devaluations, and some hotel conglomerate wanted to APPRECIATE (the opposite of depreciate or devalue, a word rarely heard in loyalty programs.) the value of the their points. Show their appreciation to their best customers and point collectors with static award levels for years at a time….give perks to loyalty members that earned it with stays, not to the CC users…too many new points get created by CC signup bonuses, causing award prices to increase.. it is printing a virtual currency, and airline and hotel loyalty programs can be valuated in the billions as far as a financial liability on the companies books.
Sorry to ramble and rant, the end line is I believe Hilton went first into deep devaluation out of all the top chains. They continue to devaluate and need to be told ( with our wallets) that enough is enough….their only purpose now a days, for me, is to make Bonvoy look good…LOL
