Does anyone know about/use the Hilton Honors AMEX Business Card? It looks pretty good compared to sapphire, but just wanted to check

The Hilton Amex aspire comes with automatic Diamond status (equal to Marriott titanium). Huge benefit!

The business card is only gold status which depending on your hotel can mean very little. We just finished a weeklong family vacation and our status earned us 2 bottles of water (total, not per night) and a 1 hour late check-out.

I have it, and it is fine but their points aren't worth much and were recently devalued again. There is a decent sign up bonus now so if you can meet it then it's probably worth it but I don't use mine as a daily spender, just for the occasional Amex offer and Hilton purchase.

Which version of sapphire do you have and how much do you travel?

Oh i don’t know SM1; at points per dollar for bars and restaurants, I think it’s pretty good for racking up points.

6x hh for restaurants is decent but points are only worth half a cent or so. Other cards offer 3x or more cash back which is better IMO.

Sapphire Reserve gets 3x UR which are worth 4.5c or more on travel, 3c on cash back.

Plus I don't like Amex as it isn't accepted as widely as Visa/mc.

thank you! I am deciding between the Hilton and the Sapphire - I travel maybe 5 times a year, so not too much travelling. But I was curious since I just saw that card last night. But if you think Sapphire is better, I will do that.

If you plan to travel the reserve is the far superior sapphire card. It comes with a hefty annual fee but if you can use the $300 travel credit it is only like $50 net more than the preferred plus comes with significant other perks, lounge access, and increased rewards worth far more than $50.

Another question - why are you comparing a business card to a normal card? If you are eligible for a business card check out the Chase Ink lineup. I'd take any of those over Sapphire Pref. Sapphire reserve is still the premium card if you travel enough to offset the annual fee.
