MCLEAN, Va. — American Express and Hilton Honors have launched a co-branded credit-card portfolio, which features four new cards designed to give consumers and small businesses more choice, benefits and value.
The four card portfolio — including the no-annual-fee Hilton Honors American Express Card, the Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card, the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card and the Hilton Honors American Express Business Card — reflect extensive consumer and small-business research.
“The card portfolio we are announcing today was designed with both frequent and less frequent travellers in mind,” says Mark Weinstein, Hilton’s SVP and global head – Customer Engagement, Loyalty and Partnerships. “We know travellers — and particularly our Hilton Honors credit card holders — are looking for even more access, personalized benefits, premium service and, yes, the ability to earn even more points. In fact, the Aspire Card offers the most Hilton Honors Points we have ever offered for spending in our hotels.”
Designed for the occasional traveller, the no-annual-fee Hilton Honors American Express Card received an upgrade, including the removal of foreign-transaction fees. It maintains the same name and benefits of the original card.
The Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card will deliver maximized travel rewards, including elevated Hilton Honors status, the ability to earn more points and Priority Lounge passes.
The Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card is ideal for frequent travellers seeking premium services and elevated experiences. It provides instant Diamond status, lounge access, airline credits, free nights and 24/7 concierge access, in addition to offering the richest Hilton Honors earn rate ever.
The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card is designed to help small-business owners get the most out of every dollar spent and every mile travelled to invest back into their business. The card also includes access to the American Express OPEN platform designed specifically for small-business owners.
