The American Express Business Card has a limited time up front offer. This has proven popular in correspondence with readers. It is a great value for the price and also because of the bonus. Now that American Express has launched a new up front bonus offer, I think you should consider getting this card.

  1. Initial bonus: The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card has an offer to earn 130,000 Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 in purchases on the Hilton Honors Business Card in the first 3 months of Card Membership.
  2. Strong return on spend at Hilton properties: the card earns 12X at hotels and resorts in the Hilton portfolio, 6X at US gas stations, on US purchases for shipping, on wireless telephone services purchased directly from US service providers, on flights booked directly with airlines or with Amex Travel, on car rentals booked directly from select car rental companies, and at US restaurants, 3X on all other eligible purchases. Terms & Limitations Apply.
  3. Complimentary Hilton Gold status: which is great for avoiding those inferior rooms and gets complimentary breakfast, highly useful at resorts, it was a huge savings on my last beach vacation at Bora Bora Nui.

  4. Spend for Diamond status: Receive top tier Diamond status after $40,000 spend on the card in a calendar year. If you just wanted Diamond the pricier premium personal card comes with that, but you may be spending $40,000 on this card anyway because of the benefits for spending even more than that.
  5. Annual free weekend night: $15,000 spend in purchases in a calendar year earns a weekend night reward.
  6. Additional free weekend night from spend: You earn another weekend night after you spend $60,000 in purchases on your card in the same calendar year. And since $40,000 spend earns Diamond status, if you earn the second free night you also are a top tier elite.

  7. Airport lounge access: The card lets you opt in for Priority Pass Select offering airport lounge access including 10 visits each year, which is amazing value on a $95 annual fee card (See Rates & Fees).
  8. Reportedly easier approvals. Over the past several months business credit card approvals have been tough, which is consistent with the experience reported by many readers. It’s understandable with all the uncertainty for small businesses during the pandemic and in this economy that banks would be cautious extending them new credit. However if reader reports about The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card are an indication that appears to be changing.
  9. Doesn’t add to Chase 5/24: American Express small business cards aren’t counted in your 5/24 total that Chase uses when considering whether to approve you for a card.
