Hilton Weekend Award Night That Doesn’t Require $10,000 in Spending (Expired)

This offers described in this post have expired, please head here for up to date credit card information.  Things in the rewards credit card space aren’t always that simple as there can be multiple versions of a program’s co-branded card, sometimes even issued by multiple banks. This was the case for the Hilton Honors co-branded cards as there were multiple fee and no annual fee versions of Hilton cards issued by multiple banks leading to lots of options…and lots of confusion. This…

Recently the Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express temporarily bumped its sign-up bonus al the way up to 100,000 Hilton Honors points after you spend $3,000 on the card in the first 3 months.

Why We Turned Citi ThankYou Points Into Hilton Honors Points

Remember that time I transferred Amex Membership Reward points to Delta SkyMiles? A couple years ago I would have taken odds against me ever doing that since SkyMiles wasn’t generally thought to be a great frequent flyer program, and I had more lofty goals for my Membership Reward points than transferring to Delta for an economy domestic saver award. But, it made financial sense at the time, and I don’t regret it one bit.   Now I am in the same situation with…

Even at a 1:2 ratio it isn’t going to always make sense to transfer from Citi to the Hilton program since Hilton points are generally only worth about a…

There are currently two Citi issued Hilton cards, the Citi Hilton Reserve card with a $95 annual fee that has a…
