If you have been reading Head for Points for a while, you will realise that I am very keen on the Hilton HHonors Platinum Visa credit card.
It is not the greatest card in the world for long-term spending – especially with the recent Hilton HHonors devaluation – but the sign-up bonus is great.
This is the standard package – you get a free night at any Hilton Group property just for spending £750 on the card within 90 days. If you use this at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotel, you are likely to get over £200 in value from this. Importantly, the card is free with no annual fee.
The other short-term benefits are also OK, such as 2,500 bonus Hilton points for your first four stays charged to the card. Here is my full Hilton HHonors credit card review from a few weeks ago.
However, it gets better!
Neil sent me details of this offer. As you can see, it offers all of the usual benefits of the Hilton card. You also receive a further 10,000 Hilton Hhonors points on top! Even post devaluation, I still value Hilton points at £3-4 per 1,000 – more if you use the cash and points option when redeeming – so you are getting an extra £30+ of value by applying via this link.
In theory the link above is targetted to recipients of a mailshot. In reality, I am pretty sure anyone who uses it will get the extra 10,000 Hilton HHonors points. You have nothing to lose, since the worst that can happen is that they give you the standard package you would have received anyway.
If you’ve been considering the Hilton card, now is as good a time to get it. The issuer is Barclays, so it may clash with a Barclaycard or Priority Club credit card if you hold those.
The deadline for this offer is 10th June, so there is no rush.
