Editors Review

Pros

  • Get 40,000 points for spending $1,000 in the first 4 month of the account
  • No annual fee, which is expected for a co-branded card
  • 6x points on stay at Hilton Portfolio participating hotels 
  • 3x points at supermarkets, gas, and drugstores
  • 2x bonus points for regular purchases
  • HHonors Silver status after four stays in 3 first moths
  • Visa Signature benefits

Cons

  • Points can be redeemed only for Hilton Portfolio hotels nights.
  • 3% international transaction fee
  • Low points value (see details below)

Verdict

Although the points are earned quickly, you should understand that HHonors bonus points are worth about half of the other rewards programs. So for an honest comparison, just divide HHonors reward rate by two. If you need a travel card, maybe Barclaycard Arrival can be a better option for you.
