The Hilton Surpass 100k points offer is no longer available. Hilton Surpass currently offers a bonus of 130,000 points for spending $2,000 in the first 3 months. That’s a lot of value, even when you consider the Surpass Card’s $95 annual fee.
There has been a Hilton Surpass 100k points bonus several times in the past. To get it, the cardholder had to spend $3,000 in the first 3 months. The new initial bonus offers greater value, though.
The Hilton Surpass Card currently comes with even more bonuses, too. You get automatic Gold status just for having the card. And you can earn a free night and an upgrade to Hilton Honors Diamond status after meeting other spending requirements. Surpass also provides high ongoing rewards on purchases at Hilton, as well as at U.S. restaurants, gas stations and supermarkets.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve® 100k bonus is not available anymore, as it was a limited-time promotion that ran from August 2016 through March 2017. Cardholders who were approved during that period and spent $4,000 within 3 months of account opening got 100,000 bonus points. And that Chase Sapphire Reserve 100k bonus was worth $1,500 in travel – an incredible deal.… read full answer
But after March 2017, you get a bonus of 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months. That’s still one of the biggest credit card bonuses on the market, though. And it’s enough to cover more than a years’ worth of Chase Sapphire Reserve®’s $550 annual fee.
So, at the end of the day, the Chase Sapphire Reserve®’s 100k bonus is no longer available because it was never supposed to be permanent. It was the equivalent of 35% cash back, and that’s just not sustainable. Chase offered it to build some buzz for the new Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card when it was introduced. And since that seems to have worked, they retired that promotion. It’s possible Chase could do another 100,000 point bonus in the future. But don’t count on it.
Fortunately, Chase Sapphire Reserve®’s sign-up bonus isn’t the only benefit you’ll enjoy. You’ll also receive a $300 travel credit each year. And you’ll earn 3 points / $1 spent on all travel and dining purchases as well as 1 point / $1 on everything else. Those points are normally worth 1 cent each, but when redeemed for travel, they’re worth 1.5 cents apiece.
