Calculate Your Value

For those meeting the promotional spend requirement, BestCashCow calculates the value of the sign-up bonus to be $900 to $1,000, plus the  $100 statement credit.

BestCashCow estimates the value of 1,000 Hilton points to be between $3 and $6.  A cardholder spending $25,000 a year, including $1,000 at Hilton hotels and $2,500 in airline tickets or car rental expenses, would receive 90,000 Hilton points annually which BestCashCow calculates the value to be between $270 and $540.   Additionally, the free anniversary night for cardholders spending over $10,000 annually represents value that more than covers the annual fee.
