The Hilton business card does carry the various advantages of business cards.

First of all it won’t count against your 5/24 count for opening new Chase cards. Only cards on your report that have been opened within the past 24 months count for that and business cards won’t appear on your personal credit report.

Second, when you spend money on personal cards your credit score will be hurt even if you pay your bill on time. A whopping 30% of your credit score is based on credit utilization. You can pay off your card bill before your statement is generated to avoid that, but that takes effort and laying out money well before you have to. Additionally it’s good to have the statement close with a couple dollars to show the card is active and being paid every month. On an AMEX business card it’s just not reported, so you can wait until the money is due without it having a negative effect on your score.

Third, if you close a business card it won’t ever have an effect on your score.

You may already have a business that needs a card to keep track of expenses. For example if your name is Joe Smith and you sell items online, or if you have any other side business and want a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures you can just open a business credit card for “Joe Smith” as the business name. You don’t need to file any messy government paperwork to be allowed to do that.
Just be sure to select “Sole Proprietorship” as the business type and just use your social security number in the Tax Identification Number field.


An overwater villa with a private pool in the Conrad Maldives can cost more than $1,500/night after tax, but it’s bookable for 95K points. If you have a Hilton credit card or elite status and stay for 5 nights you’ll get the 5th night for free, meaning you’ll need just 76K points/night. Free weekend nights are valid at all Hilton hotels, including this one.

5 nights in the Maldives is pretty much the definition of Heaven on Earth. Read more about the Conrad Maldives here.

 

 

The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem has gotten stingier with the King Superior room space required for a standard points booking. When there is space the rates vary between 72K-95K points per night. If you have a Hilton credit card or elite status and stay for 5 nights you’ll need 57.6K-76K points/night. Free weekend nights are valid at all Hilton hotels, including this one.

 

 

The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is one of the finest hotels in Israel.

There is a mind-boggling quantity of awesome kosher food at the hotel’s daily breakfast, from dozens of daily hot dishes to hard cheeses, fresh fruits and pastries to fresh squeezed juices, as well as on-demand dishes like french toast, pancakes, waffles, and eggs. Unlimited wine, hot or cold chocolate drinks, and espresso drinks are included as well!

Breakfast is free on points stays if you have Gold or Diamond status, which you can get just by having a Hilton credit card:

With a breakfast like this, you may not even be hungry for dinner…

In order to get all 3 card and bonus points do I need to apply for all 3 cards at the same time with 3 browsers, or can i just apply for one card after another?

I just got approved for the new Hilton Biz card with the 100k offer – haven’t even received and activated it yet. Any hope for me to get matched to the new 125k offer, and if so, how to go about it?
