Marketing Bullets

  • Annual fee of $75 is not waived
  • Welcome bonus is not available to those who have or who have had this card in the past.
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 12x points per dollar on purchases with a participating hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio
    • 6x points per dollar U.S restaurants
    • 6x points per dollar at U.S supermarkets
    • 6x points per dollar at U.S gas stations

One More Thing!

The standard bonus is 60,000 points, but this card has peaked at 80,000 points a few times. The 85,000 is the highest public bonus for the Surpass card I’ve ever seen, so if you’re in need of Hilton points it’s probably a good bet. However, if you are a Avid Credit Card Joint reader you will know there is a way to get 50,000 HHonors points with this Surpass credit card without getting a credit pull.

True 50k isn’t 85k, but 50,000 with a credit pull is work 35,000 points.

What is this 50k you keep mentioning?

Upgrade to the Hilton HHonors Surpass® Card from American Express

We found this link, that upgrades your credit card WITHOUT a credit pull.

So all you need to do is have an existing card that is eligible, I had a HHonors regular card, so that worked. I didn’t apply for the HHonors card, rather I downgraded the Amex Delta Platinum card that I got last month with 60k.  For those that read our blog frequently, they would have nabbed that card as well. now it is really putting my credit pull to good use with this bonus 50k on the Surpass card.

What else do you need to do?

There is a spending requirement of $3,000 in 90 days, like all credit card signups.

Everything you need to know about American Express Cards

In Summary:

Apply for the Hilton Surpass card for 85,000, or just upgrade for 50,000 bonus points.

BRG Best Rate Guarantee: Free Hotel Stays

BRG an acronym for Best Rate Guarantee is a diamond in the rough.  Imagine sleeping in a hotel in the city in a $500 room, or some resort in the Caribbeans for free! Very few people take advantage of it, but the results can be well worth while. Everyone enjoys something for free, and that is exactly what some Best Rate Guarantees are! There are different rules for different hotel chains, so before you do a BRG make sure you know what you are doing. Read on so we can lead you with some pointers.

What is a BRG?

BRG stands for Best Rate Guarantee. It is in reference to free or reduced/ matched hotel rooms.

Why do They Offer BRG?

Hotels want you to “think” you are getting the best deal. And usually you are. As a reverse physiology game they display a “guarantee” that you got the best price, You will feel confident in booking a room much faster.

BRG’s are the cheapest option for free hotel rooms. Although they might not be so easy to find, they sure are worth your time. Staying in hotels are more fun when they are free!

What hotels Offer FREE rooms

Although many hotels offer BRG claims, many are not worthwhile. Some match the price, others match and give 10%, and Expedia give you the difference and a $50 voucher.

Currently there are 2 hotel groups that offer completely free nights

Choice Hotels

IHG

Yes, you can find other brands with BRG but they don’t compare. Take Starwood for example:

Find a lower rate and we’ll give you a 10% discount or 2,000 Starpoints.

Yes, that is nice and generous, but measly compared to a free night

New York – GEM Hotel – Chelsea, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member

$389 a night value

As a matter of fact this hotel is currently available to book for FREE!

A special HT: To the best BRG Blog.

The current Rate Variation is:

Priceline – $369.00 vs ChoiceHotels.com – $389.00

How do you make a claim?

  • Find a lower price ofthe same properties on a website other teh the main booking site
  • Make sure the room types are exactly the same
  • Double check that the dates are the same
  • Book the room on the hotel properties site
  • Fill out the BRG form
  • Await for the conformation of the free room

What else is there to know?

  1. Always book a refundable room, you don’t want to be stuck with a room that the BRG isn’t honored
  2. If it doesn’t work, cancel and try again
  3. You will be told no sometimes, move on
  4. The hotel owes you nothing
  5. Use, don’t abuse
  6. Some programs have rules like only 1 night per person per area, don’t book your entire family on your account for the same place!

And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to be entered into our $50 Giveaway!

In Summary

Best Rate Guarantee AKA BRG can amount to Free Hotel Stays!
