Summary

The new dedicated official Internet web site for the American Express cards from Hilton Honors is available starting today.

The best part about the sign-up bonuses is that they are not limited-time offers and have no end date at this time — and they are available to anyone who successfully applies and is approved for each of the cards. I confirmed this information with one of my contacts at Hilton.

As a disclaimer — other than what I typically earn from views of articles at The Gate — I have received absolutely no compensation in writing articles pertaining to the American Express cards from Hilton Honors.

I had originally stated in this article that I am not fond of American Express due to my experiences with the company in the past; so I have no plans at this time to apply for any of the aforementioned cards…

…but I have been rethinking that…
