American Express today released incentives and benefit enhancements for those who have and swipe the Hilton Honors Aspire card.
Members earn bonus points for groceries, weekend free night award is now valid during weekdays too, resort credit can be used for US restaurant purchases, and all bonus points earned will count as a base towards elite and lifetime status qualifications.
You can access Hilton’s page for the Amex cards here.
Free Night Rewards
Existing and new weekend night rewards issued until the end of 2020 can be used during weeknights as well. Free night rewards issued May 1 – December 31, 2020, will be valid for 24 months.
$250 resort credit can be used for US restaurant purchases between June 1 – August 31, 2020.
All base and bonus points earned will count towards earning elite (you get Diamond when holding this card) and lifetime status
Here’s a copy of the email that Hilton sent out:
These changes, although only temporary, are useful for Hilton Honors members and those carrying the Aspire card from American Express.
I am glad that it is now easier for members to use their free night rewards and resort credits when on-property benefits, due to the lack of travel, in the short term, are not useful.
