UPDATE 8/27 – The current (higher) welcome offers on these American Express cards are scheduled to be removed (reduced) on Wednesday August 28th

The welcome offer on the  American Express Hilton cards typically moves up and down every couple of months. I’ve just received word that the welcome offers on 2 of the cards has increased to an all-time level. The welcome offers on these Hilton cards is going up – as high as a Hilton 130,000 point offer!

What’s changed?

The main change was the renaming of the Hilton Ascend card BACK to the Hilton Surpass card (what it was called before). We also do have increased welcome offers. The 130,000 point offer on the Hilton Honors Surpass and 90,000 points on the no fee Hilton card are higher than we have ever seen.  The other 2 offers (75,000 for the no-fee version and 150,000 on the Ascend card) are matching the highest welcome offers we’ve seen

There was also a minor change in the late fees which should not affect you because you should not be paying late fees!!!!!
