Overview

The no-annual-fee Hilton Honors™ Card from American Express offers the following benefits:

    • No annual fee
    • No foreign transaction fees
    • Hilton Silver status;  Gold status after $20K calendar year spend
    • Earning rate:
      • 7X at hotels and resorts in the Hilton portfolio worldwide
      • 5X at U.S. grocery stores, U.S. restaurants, and U.S. gas stations
      • 3X on all other eligible purchases

Due to the relatively low value of Hilton points compared to many other types of rewards (see: Reasonable Redemption Values), this isn’t the best card to use for spend.  However, since the card has no annual fee, it makes sense to pick this one up for its signup bonus and keep it in case you are offered a lucrative upgrade offer to one of Amex’s other Hilton cards.

FM Mini Review: This card isn't particularly rewarding, but it's good to keep primarily for targeted Amex upgrade offers to the Ascend card.
