Hilton Honors Aspire Application Tips


Amex Application Tips



  • Safe to Apply: Amex is the safest bank for trying your luck at earning a new welcome bonus offer. They don’t usually issue a hard pull when denying your application, and if you already have an Amex card, they won't usually issue a hard pull when approved for another one. Plus, they’ll now warn you during the application process if you’re not eligible for the bonus.

  • Lifetime Rule: If you've ever had the same card before, you are most likely prohibited from earning a welcome bonus offer for the card if you apply now. Fortunately you'll be warned during the application process if this is the case. Amex is known to "forget" that you've had a card after about 7 years.

  • 90 Day Rule: You can get at most two credit cards within 90 days. This rule does not apply to Pay Over Time (charge) cards.

  • 5 credit card max: Amex usually won't approve applications for new credit cards if you already have 5 or more Amex credit cards or 10 or more charge cards.

  • Better Offers: You may be able to get a better offer than the best available public offer. Details here.

  • Hard inquiries combine into 1 when approved same day

Should you apply?

The Amex Hilton Honors Aspire card offers a very impressive collection of benefits, including Diamond Elite Status, $400 in Hilton Resort Credits, $200 in airline credits and a free night certificate that can be used at almost any Hilton property in the world. If you can make use of all of that, the card’s benefits can easily outweigh the hefty $550 annual fee.

Are you eligible?

Amex is usually the safest bank for trying your luck at earning a new welcome offer. Most of the time, they won’t issue a hard pull when denying your application or when approving you if you already have at least one Amex card. Plus, they’ll warn you during the application process if you’re not eligible for the bonus.

If you’ve ever had a card before, you are most likely prohibited from earning a welcome offer for that same card if you apply now. Fortunately you’ll be warned during the application process if this is the case. Amex is known to “forget” that you’ve had a card after about 5-7 years. Note that there are frequently offers with no lifetime language (NLL) that aren’t bound by this restriction.

Amex normally only allows customers to have five credit cards and ten charge cards at one time. Both personal and business cards count towards the respective five and ten card limits. There are some instances where certain customers have been allowed to go above those limits.

Application status

After you apply, call (877) 239-3491 to check your application status or use this link.

Reconsideration

If your application is denied, we recommend calling for reconsideration (800) 567-1083. It’s surprising how often denials can be changed to approvals just by asking.

Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card Perks

Hilton Honors Diamond Elite Status

Automatic Diamond status is an awesome perk that comes with this card.  You can find Hilton’s list of elite benefits here.  To summarize:

  • Silver5th night free awards2 free bottles of water per stay; 15% points bonus for stays
  • Gold: Silver benefits, plus free room upgrade (depending on availability); free internet; free breakfast (food and beverage credit within the US) at most properties; 25% points bonus for stays
  • Diamond: Gold benefits, plus 50% points bonus for stays, plus guaranteed Executive Floor Lounge access and a 48 hour room availability guarantee

As you can see above, Diamond status doesn’t offer a lot beyond Gold status, but both are valuable for the free breakfasts, room upgrades, and bonus points.  And at some properties the Diamond guaranteed Executive Floor Lounge access can be great.

Travel Benefits

  • Annual Free Night Certificate (cardmember year): Good for one night in a standard room at almost any Hilton property in the world (see list of exclusions here).
  • Annual $400 Resort Credit ($200 semi-annually): Valid towards any room charges made at a Hilton resort property (full list here) as long as you pay with your Amex Hilton Aspire card upon checking out of a participating hotel.
  • Annual $200 Airline Credit ($50 quarterly): Good towards any airline charges, including airfare when booked through an airline or amextravel.com. Must pay with your Hilton Honors Aspire Card.
  • CLEAR Credit: Receive up to $189 in statements credits each year for CLEAR when you use your Hilton Aspire card.
  • National Car Rental Executive Status: This lets you pick a nicer car from the Executive Aisle instead of the usual Emerald Aisle.
  • $100 Luxury Property Credit: Book a 2 night minimum stay at hiltonhonorsaspirecard.com or by calling Hilton Honors at (855) 292-5757 and get up to $100 in hotel credits at participating Waldorf Astoria and Conrad properties (rates are usually higher than booking the best available member rate),

Lounge Access (ends 2/1/24)

  • Priority Pass: Cardholders currently have access to the same Priority Pass Select that Amex provides on other cards, but this will end on 2/1/24.

Travel Protections

  • Auto Rental Coverage: The Aspire offers secondary auto rental CDW (collision damage waiver), which means that it applies after your personal car insurance. If you aren’t covered by personal car insurance, it acts as the primary policy.

    • You must have paid with your card in the billing cycle before the month the incident occurs.
    • Cell phone coverage applies to all lines listed on the account.
    • There is a $50 deductible and maximum of $800 per claim.

Redeeming Hilton Honors Points

Hilton eliminated award charts several years ago and pricing is now variable. Hilton instead offers the Hilton Points Explorer tool that purportedly shows the minimum price of a standard room at each hotel in the Hilton Honors program.

Unfortunately, when the tool launched we showed that it isn’t very reliable (See: Hilton’s junky new Points Explorer tool isn’t always accurate). The tool does not always accurately reflect the minimum price. For example, a recent search of the tool showed a minimum price of 67,000 points per night for a property, but clicking through to view dates showed dates in the coming months from 54,000 points.

Hilton Honors “5th Night Free” awards

Hilton offers the 5th night free on standard room points award stays for those with Silver status or higher. The Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions state that “After the 5th Night Free benefit is applied, eligible members will be charged 0 points for the 5th night, 10th night, 15th night, and 20th night of the stay, as applicable.” You can get a maximum of 4 free nights in a single stay (i.e. at a maximum, you would get 4 free nights on a 20-night stay). However, a member can utilize this benefit an unlimited number of times during the year.

Note that the way Hilton calculates and displays the price on 5th night free stays can be confusing. Essentially, Hilton prices each night at 4/5ths of the cost of an award night, though the average nightly cost of a 5-night stay may not be the same as the price of booking 5 nights separately. The best practice is to search nights both as a 5-night stay and individually to be sure you get the best deal. See: Hilton’s funny math: save points by extending a stay and Hilton stinks at math: book award nights separately for more on this topic.

Points & Money awards

Hilton offers members the chance to book an award using a mixture of points and money. Members can use points in increments of 1,000 points to offset the cost of a stay. When using points & money, points will offset the cash cost at a rate just below the ratio of the paid room rate to the award night cost.

In other words, if a $100 stay costs 20,000 points, the value of points in that instance is half a cent per point. If a member uses points to partially offset the cost of the stay, the points will reduce the cost by just under half a cent per point (i.e. using 10,000 points will reduce the cash cost by a little less than $50).

How to Manage Hilton Honors Points

How to share Hilton Honors points with others

Hilton Honors allows members to transfer points to other members or pool points with a group. You can find the options shown above by logging in to your account at Hilton.com and choosing the “Points” tab at the top.

Note that each Hilton Honors Member is limited to sending no more than five hundred thousand (500,000) Points and receiving two million (2,000,000) Points via Points Pooling or Transfers combined per calendar year. Also, each member is limited to making six transfers to other member accounts and six Hilton Points Pooling transactions per calendar year.

If you simply want to move points from one account to another (perhaps from one spouse to another), you can “transfer points” to another member. You’ll need to verify your account with a code sent to the email address on file and then enter the name, email address, and Hilton Honors account number of the recipient.

If you want to share points amongst a larger group (like a family), Hilton Honors also allows points pooling whereby you can share points with up to 10 other members. Each member can transfer up to 500,000 points into a pool in a calendar year and an individual member can receive up to 2,000,000 points in a calendar year. You must have been a member for at least 30 days and have at least 1,000 points in your account to join a pool. Note that while the original program announcement suggested that pooled points are available immediately but “may take up to 24 hours” to be reflected in your account, my experience has been that this really varies. Sometimes, pooled points move instantly. Sometimes, it can take several days for pooled points to transfer and other times transfers have sometimes failed without reason. It is advisable to initiate pooling or transfers in advance when possible.

How to keep Hilton Honors points alive

Points expire after 24 months of inactivity.  Fortunately, almost all points activity will reset the clock.  Points remain alive and available as long as you earn or use points at least once every 24 months.

Some examples of activity that would keep points alive:

  • Earning from a stay
  • Using a Hilton credit card
  • Purchasing points
  • Transferring from Amex Membership Rewards
  • Earning from the Hilton Dining program
  • Shopping with points at Amazon
  • Earning points from a car rental
  • Donating Hilton points to charity

Hilton Aspire: Keep, cancel, or product change?

Is this card worth keeping in the long run? The Amex Hilton Honors Aspire card offers a very impressive collection of benefits.  If you stay in Hilton a Hilton resort even once a year, then I’d argue that the card’s benefits outweigh it’s $550 annual fee.  That said, we don’t recommend using it for spend anywhere except at Hilton properties (where it earns 14X) and for airfare (in order to claim up to $200 in airline reimbursements each year).  Other card combinations are much more rewarding for spend.

Hilton Aspire Downgrade Options

The Amex Hilton portfolio offers downgrade possibilities for those who don’t want to pay the annual fee, but also would prefer not to cancel the card. This can be especially useful if you won’t be travelling (or using the card’s benefits) for an extended period as you can downgrade to a lower or no-annual fee card, then upgrade back to the Aspire again when you need it.

There’s two different options listed below: the no-annual fee Hilton Honors card and the $150 Hilton Surpass card. The Surpass comes with Gold status, which still gets you breakfast and food & beverage credits, as well as $200 in annual Hilton credits. That would probably be our first choice if you wanted to downgrade, but were still planning on travelling. Otherwise, the no-annual fee card is your best bet.

Diamond status would be quite valuable for me over the next year or two. Unfortunately, both my husband and I were ineligible to receive the bonus on the current 175k bonus with the Aspire which also confers Diamond status. (If we applied anyway, I’d still get the diamond status but it would be a bitter pill to skip out on the 175k bonus.). Neither of us ever had the Aspire before so I’m curious what else would make us ineligible in case it is something I can clean up. Any thoughts?

Duh. It’s my first time in pop up jail!

Stephen Pepper

Were you referring each other to the card from one of your other Amex cards or using the link above? If so, Amex seems to sometimes put people in “popup jail” (i.e. advises them they won’t be eligible for a welcome offer bonus) when using a referral link, so it might be worth trying to use a non-referral link to see if that helps. Just make sure the non-referral link shows the higher offer, although any bonus would be better than none.

suya

This is misleading – it’s only 160k, no additional FNC as a sub.

Last edited 2 months ago by suya
Tim Steinke

That’s not correct. With the Aspire, you get a FNC within 8 weeks of signing up for the card, unlike all other hotel cards that only award the FNC at the first anniversary.

suya

Ok, bit it’s not part of the sub (you’ll get it regardless of spend?)

Tim Steinke

It is part of the SUB (sign-up bonus). Like it says in the description, the sign-up bonus you get is a free night certificate (8-12 weeks afterwards, just for getting the card) and then 160K points if you complete $6k in spend within 6 months. Something doesn’t necessarily need to be based on minimum spend to be part of a sign-up bonus (which is what’s indicated here in the SUB explanation).

Nick Reyes

In this case, we want to make it abundantly clear to people that they get the free night certificate in the first year. It is very common for people to assume that it works like other cards where you don’t get a free night certificate until after you’ve paid the annual fee again for a second time at anniversary, so we want to highlight that for those who wouldn’t know it since that free night certificate in the first year is such a significant piece of the value proposition. For this card, we include the value of the first year’s free night certificate in the first year value calculation because you get that certificate in the first year, whereas on a card where the free night certificate isn’t issued until after your next anniversary, that isn’t part of the first year value. If we didn’t consider the value of the free night certificate in year one, it would disproportionately disadvantage the value proposition of this card against one where you have to pay two annual fees to get a free night certificate.

no, you get 14x just for paying the stay with this card. the rest of points are awarded by hilton

I’ve had this card for several years now and it really isn’t serving me as well anymore. On my Hilton accountlanding page it says my Diamond has been extended for the rest of the year, and I’ve just been billed my annual fee. If I cancel now, when would I lose my Diamond status? I can keep Gold with my Amex Plat, and I’m having hard time trying to identify any tangible benefits of diamond over gold. Thanks!

Is the $250 resort credit per calendar year? I have an eligible stay in December and am on the fence about this card. If I can get 2 resort credits in the first year with the card, that might tip me over the edge into it.

Not from experience, but a fair amount of reading on various sites:

  • Airline credit is *calendar* year
  • Resort credit is *member* year

That was the consensus I found, but it did take multiple websites to compile the info.

My Hilton Aspire card AF is set to bill on 6/5/21. If I cancel/downgrade my card, will I lose my free night certificate? Some posts I read say that it’s tied into your HH account and not the card, so once it’s issued it’s yours. I would love to use it but the only travel I have coming up before my AF hits is a HGI which I can book for $87. Definitely not a good use of the Free night certificate, but I’d rather use it if I’ll lose it. someone suggested making a reservation using the certificate before canceling/downgrading my card. Not sure if that’ll keep it from disappearing?

I am aware I will lose my Diamond status once I cancel. Any advice on what to do? Thanks.

You will lose neither the free night certificate nor will you lose Diamond status right away (you should have that at least until next year). Things like points and free night certificates are with the loyalty program – canceling the credit card won’t have any effect on your free night certificate(s) or points. That’s true across all of the hotel programs.

Kayexelate

Thanks Nick. Do you think there will be any Covid related bonuses this year like the $250 reimbursement for restaurants/food instead of using it for resorts? If so, it may be worth it to keep the card as the free night is worth $200 to me and if I got $250 worth of food reimbursement that would cover the $450 AF. My guess is not likely since Covid numbers are improving and the country is re-opening. Do people get offered retention offers or should I just downgrade to the No fee card? (which I already have)? or just close?
