3. Hilton Honors Bonus Points on Eligible Purchases

Hilton Honors Bonus Points earned using your Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card:

 

You will receive 3 Hilton Honors Bonus Points for each dollar of eligible purchases.

 

You will receive 9 additional Hilton Honors Bonus Points, for a total of 12, for each dollar of eligible purchases charged directly with a property within the Hilton portfolio, including bookings and incidental charges. To receive the 9 additional Hilton Honors Bonus Points for charges made at the time of booking, the booking must be made directly through a reservation channel operated by Hilton. You can receive the 9 additional Hilton Honors Bonus Points for incidental charges made at the hotel (including charges made at restaurants, spas, and other establishments) if those charges can be and are charged to your room and paid for with your Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card at checkout.

 

You will receive 3 additional Hilton Honors Bonus Points, for a total of 6, for each dollar of eligible purchases at the following categories of merchants excluding superstores and warehouse clubs: restaurants located in the U.S., supermarkets located in the U.S. and on gasoline at gas stations located in the U.S.

 

To get additional points for a restaurant purchase, the purchase must be at a restaurant located in the United States. You will NOT get additional points for purchases made at a restaurant owned by a U.S. company but located outside the U.S. (e.g. Hard Rock Café in Paris). You also will NOT get additional points for purchases at nightclubs, convenience stores, grocery stores, or supermarkets. You may not get additional points for purchases at a restaurant located within another establishment (e.g. a restaurant inside a hotel, casino, or event venue). For example, purchases made at a restaurant located within a hotel may be recognized as a purchase at a hotel, not a restaurant.

 

Your Hilton Honors Points are subject to Hilton Honors Terms and Conditions; see HiltonHonors.com/Terms.

 

Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person payments, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Hilton Honors Bonus Points you earn with your Card will be posted to your Hilton Honors account up to 12 weeks after the end of your billing period.

 

Purchases made through a third-party payment account or on an online marketplace (with multiple retailers) will not receive additional points.

 

Merchants are typically assigned codes and categorized based on what they primarily sell. A purchase will not receive additional points if a merchant, or a particular merchant location, uses a code that is not eligible for additional points. A purchase may not receive additional points if the merchant submits the purchase using a mobile or wireless card reader or if you use a mobile or digital wallet.
