When Does Hilton Free Weekend Night Post After Approval of Amex Hilton Aspire Card?


American Express Hilton Aspire Card offers a Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward every year starting from the time that you apply for the card and you get approved. This is one of the best perks to maximize the Aspire card benefits because of its premium high annual fee of $450 (Why the Amex Hilton Aspire Card Is Worth the Annual Fee $450). 

For those that plan on using the Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward right away after the approval of the American Express Hilton Aspire Card, you may want to know when do Amex and Hilton issue the certificate after you are approved for the card.

    How Amex Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward Works

    • Upon approval of the American Express Hilton Aspire Card, you will receive one Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward, and every year after renewal. 
    • The Reward Certificate is valid for one complimentary night for a standard room at participating Hilton hotels & resorts worldwide.
    • A weekend night is defined as a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night.

    COVID-19: Hilton Free Weekend Night Certificate Extension

    In wake of COVID-19
    • All unexpired Hilton Free Weekend Night Rewards that are earned on eligible Hilton Credit Cards that are set to expire on August 31, 2021, will now be extended through January 3, 2022.
    • All 2021-issued Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward certificates are extended to December 31, 2022.
    • All Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward certificates can also continue to be used any night of the week (not just on weekends).  

    When Does Amex Hilton Aspire Free Weekend Night Arrive After Approval of the Card?

    According to American Express:

    During each year of your Card Membership, you will receive one Annual Free Weekend Night Reward from Hilton Honors. The Annual Free Weekend Night Reward will be issued in the form of a redeemable code and sent in an email from Hilton Honors to the email address listed on your Hilton Honors account. You will receive the reward email within 8-14 weeks after opening your Card Account and each year within 8-14 weeks after your Card Account anniversary date.

    Here's my timeline:

    • May 7 - Approved for the American Express Hilton Aspire Card
    • July 7 - Received Amex email with a subject "You've received an Annual Weekend Night Reward from Hilton Honors" 
    • July 8 - Hilton issued the Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward with a subject "Your Free Night Reward has arrived!" Make sure to confirm your correct email address in your Hilton Honors account profile as that's how Hilton will send you the redeemable code for the free weekend night certificate. 

    If you do not receive any emails, you can call Hilton at 1-800-446-6677. After your identity is verified, the agent will be able to tell you about your available Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward in your account including its expiration date and redemption code. 

    As you can see, it takes around 8 weeks or 2 months for me to receive Amex Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward

    How To View Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward Certificate

    Currently, it is not possible to view Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward online. You can search your email that is associated with your Hilton Honors account, or call Hilton at 1-800-446-6677 to inquire about it. After your identity is verified, the agent will be able to tell you about your available Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward certificate in your account including its expiration date and the code for redemption. 

    How To Redeem Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward

    You cannot redeem Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward online at this time. You must call Hilton at 1-800-446-6677, provide your Hilton Honors account and let the agent know that you would like to redeem your free weekend night reward. The agent will walk you through from there to make a reservation. 

    As a reminder, the Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward certificate is valid for one complimentary night for a standard room at participating Hilton hotels & resorts worldwide. This means that if a Hilton property has a standard points room available, you should be able to use the free weekend night reward for that particular property. Therefore, you can also, do an award search online first on Hilton Hotels and Resorts website first to verify availability before calling up Hilton. 

    Combining Hilton Honors Points & Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward On One Reservation

    You can combine Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward with Hilton Honors points on one reservation. However, you cannot mix the Hilton 5th Night Free with points benefit and the free weekend night reward on one reservation. 

    Therefore, to combine Hilton Honors points and Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward on one reservation, your stay must be less than 5 nights. 


    Best Hilton Hotels To Use Amex Hilton Card Free Weekend Night Certificate


    There are many exotic and beautiful Hilton hotels and resorts in the world ranging from overwater bungalows in Maldives and Bora Bora to beautiful Maui and Key West that you can maximize your Amex Hilton Free Weekend Night Reward easily.
