The Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card is probably one of the best deals in travel. Gold status gets you breakfast on your Hilton stays and there aren’t any less expensive cards I’m aware of that come with airport lounge access (for most people 10 annual free visits is more than enough). The no annual fee card though is a nice deal for the bonus points.

  1. One great benefit for people holding other cards with PP is the 10 free visits includes guests. I guested 4 others into a PP lounge in Canada when I had the card last year; otherwise it would have cost about US$60 for the other 2.

  2. You sure about those numbers Gary? Because of this posting I just swung by the American Express home page and when I clicked on the hotel category I got offered 100,000 for the Hilton Card and 150,000 for the Surpass Card.

  3. I don’t see any language about one bonus per card user lifetime in the terms.

    Did Amex get rid of the “once per lifetime” condition for all of its cards?
