What is $75,000 points worth? In statement credit……???

I am interested in this too.
Straight up 5x on gas, restaurants, and supermarkets is great but not if the redemption stinks. LOL.

Hilton points seem to be valued at about $0.006 each, so about $450.

Since their most recent devaluation, I’d put HH points more .33-.4. You can sometimes get better value but generally it’s 30k points for a $120 room (including tax).

Not interested in getting a room.

Can the points be used for a statement credit?
That is the question.

Approx $0.004, 4/10 of a cent per point is generally what you’ll get. Sometimes better. So 75k points is worth about $300

I got usually in the range of $0.004-0.006

It really depends on the property. I few years back I did a redemption valued around 0.8 cents. After Hilton devalued the points, I now get around 0.4-0.6 cents on the same properties.

I’ve closed the book on Amex. Unless they come up with a brand new card.

Is this because you don’t like the issuer generally, or that you’ve done every sign-up bonus so it’s either they introduce a new card or you wait for your next “lifetime”? Which, in that instance, does Amex still value life in 7 year increments?

Personally prefer the 100K offer, via P1-to-P2-style referral, netting 120K for the fam. After a year, ideally get the 150K Surpass upgrade, then a year after that complete the 150K Aspire upgrade. So, +400K Hilton points in 2+ years with minimal effort. Some would say it’s a once-per-lifetime opportunity…

Got an Amex bonus denial pop-up

Were you doing a referral? I made the mistake of referring P2 from my Surpass, which she already had, even though she was going for the no-fee card (and had never had it before). Amex seems to consider the referred-by-card in these situations. Then again, there are tons of reasons Amex may deny you bonus. Check your math, son!

Yeah, I’m with @HiltyShilty on this… there are way too many reasons a bonus can be denied. Best not to even try if you get those messages.

No referrals. I haven’t closed any of my 4 Amex cards yet, but I don’t put significant spend on any of them after hitting the bonus either. The only card I was able to bypass the Amex pop-up was for the new Green card. Was really hoping to get this card because the annual fee on my Hilton Surpass is coming up.

My wife and I got this card last year when they had a 100k sign up bonus. Using those bonus points (after 1k spend each) for a 5 night stay ( use reward points for 4 nights get a 5th night thrown in for free) in Puerto Rico next year. Happy with this card and the value you get.

“Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.” So if in the past I had downgrade a surpass to a no AF hilton card and then closed it I can’t get this bonus just because I had this card in the past even though I never got the signup bonus for it before?

Unless somebody knows more than I do, I believe that’s correct.

Just got this card in mid-November. Would Amex match the $100 statement credit if I asked? Already met the 75k sub (states so on stmt), but hasn’t been credited yet.

Quick question doc; I have the personal ascend Hilton card with annual fee. Can I apply for this one and get the bonus points? Also can I apply for the other Hilton business Card that is listed recently?

Thanks!
