American Express and Hilton have inked a deal expanding their relationship so that there will now be four Hilton Honors co-Branded credit cards in their network, designed with both small businesses and consumers in mind. The cards in this network will offer people up to 14 Honors bonus points per dollar on purchases and are slated to go live in January of 2018.

The Hilton Honors American Express Card was given an overhaul, and three new cards have been added to the mix, including the Hilton Honors American Express Business Card, the Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card, and the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card. They are all designed with different kinds of travelers in mind.

“We know travelers — and particularly our Hilton Honors credit cardholders — are looking for even more access, personalized benefits, premium service and, yes, the ability to earn even more points. In fact, the Aspire Card offers the most Hilton Honors Points we have ever offered for spending in our hotels,” said Mark Weinstein, Hilton’s Senior Vice President and Global Head – Customer Engagement, Loyalty, and Partnerships.

Three Consumer Cards

The Hilton Honors American Express Card now offers cardholders seven Hilton Honors bonus points per dollar on stays booked via the Hilton portfolio worldwide, along with five points when making purchases at U.S. based grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations, and triple points on all other purchases.

It is a no-fee card, and there are no foreign transaction fees to deal with when traveling abroad. People also get free Hilton Honors Silver status, while earning Gold status with an annual spend of $20,000 a year.

The Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card offers 12 points per dollar when booking rooms at hotels and resorts in the Hilton portfolio. When shopping for groceries, pumping gas, and eating out in the U.S. people earn six points per dollar, with all other purchases earning them triple points.

Cardholders also get a One Weekend Night Reward after they spend $15,000 annually on their card. Along with this they also get free Hilton Honors Gold status with the card, while earning Diamond status with a $40,000 spend.
