Poll: Vacations are Finally Becoming a Reality Again for Travelers

Post-pandemic vacations — or “vaccications” — are finally becoming a reality for travelers after staying put for greater than a year. From weekend road trips to cross-country adventures, Hilton and American Express are helping travelers reach their financial goals — and destinations — even faster with the aforementioned new special offers to the Hilton Honors American Express Cards.

According to an Amex Trendex — which is a trend report from American Express with which an online poll was conducted by Morning Consult between Friday, January 15, 2021 and Sunday, January 24, 2021 among a national sample of 2,000 general population travelers in the United States defined as adults who traveled by air at least once in 2019 with an annual household income of at least $70,000.00:

  • 63 percent of respondents said that they are saving their credit card points so they can go on a vacation once they feel comfortable traveling.
  • One out of five respondents said they will feel comfortable taking a business trip after they receive the vaccine for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

Summary

If you are searching for additional ways to earn Hilton Honors points now in your everyday life, please click here — and please see the list at the conclusion of this article for additional offers from Hilton Honors. Also, promotions for current cardholders still exist from February of 2021.

Results of the aforementioned poll have a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points in the United States; and plus or minus three percentage points in the other countries.

The original sign-up bonuses for the then-new four cards of the Hilton Honors American Express Card portfolio were then introduced on Thursday, January 18, 2018. Some of the sign-up bonuses were then permanently revised and improved on Friday, September 7, 2018.

The special new offers are great for those looking to earn rewards towards future travel plans — but keep in mind that terms and conditions for each offer apply; and also keep in mind that even the bonus of 180,000 Hilton Honors points for the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass card is only good for one night and some change at some aspirational hotel and resort properties. For example, you will need a minimum of 150,000 Hilton Honors points to stay for one night at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi resort property.

Then again, you only need as few as 5,000 Hilton Honors points to stay at some hotel properties worldwide — which means as many as 36 nights with that same bonus; or as few as 10,000 Hilton Honors points to stay at some hotel properties worldwide — which means as many as 18 nights with that same bonus. It is all a relative matter of perspective.

As a disclaimer — other than what I typically earn from views of articles at The Gate and through affiliate links — I have received absolutely no compensation for anyone who signs up as a new cardmember for any of the Hilton Honors American Express cards.
