The Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card gives you Hilton Diamond status automatically, just for owning the card. Diamond status provides a host of perks whenever you stay at any Hilton property, including a 100% bonus on all points earned for stays, access to the hotel’s Executive lounge, guaranteed room availability with 48 hours’ notice, and free premium Wi-Fi. You’ll also get all the benefits available to lower status levels, such as two complimentary bottles of water, free continental breakfast, a fifth free night on reward stays and more. You will maintain this status as long as your credit card account remains open. While this is a great perk, keep in mind that the Hilton Honors Aspire card comes with a $450 annual fee.
There is one other credit card that gives Hilton Diamond status, too – the Hilton Honors Surpass Card. However, to get Diamond status, you must spend $40,000 on the card in a calendar year. If you do, you will receive Diamond status through the end of the following calendar year. The Hilton Honors Surpass Card’s annual fee is $95.
Normally, earning Hilton Diamond status requires 60 nights, 30 stays or 120,000 total points earned. Using an Aspire or Surpass card could allow you to get there more quickly, giving you access to the hotel’s highest level of perks.
