Apply for an American Express Card with this link. We can both get rewarded if you're approved!

You can earn:


Hilton Honors Bonus Points after you use your new Hilton Honors American Express® Card to make $1,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of Card Membership. You will be able to apply for any available Hilton American Express Personal and Business Card offers.

I was referred by my friend Phillip from Auto Locator, Inc., and used my new card for household bills for the first three months. After I racked up over 80,000 points, the pandemic hit, and I wondered if there would be travel in our future.

Because I didn't feel I was in a stable enough cashflow position to donate to the cause, I followed the referral link in my account to donate all of my points to the relief effort. Here we are four months later, and I am even happier that I chose to donate.
