Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card – 75,000 Bonus Points Promo

citihiltonlto

citihilton180emvLimited-time offer. The sign-up bonus for this card has also been bumped-up for a limited time. The Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card, from our partner Citi, is their no-annual fee co-branded card and comes with the following perks:

  • Limited Time: Earn 75,000 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points after making $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening*
  • Earn 6 HHonors Bonus Points for each $1 spent at any participating hotel within the Hilton portfolio.*
  • Earn 3 HHonors Bonus Points for each $1 spent on purchases at supermarkets, drugstores and gas stations.*
  • Earn 2 HHonors Bonus Points for each $1 spent on all other purchases.*
  • Enjoy the benefits of HHonors Silver status as long as you are a cardmember*
  • No annual fee.*

This card is ideal for people who at least occasionally stay at Hilton hotels (as this card is also giving you a bunch of points and complimentary Silver status to try and get you to become more loyal). Hilton HHonors points are worth the most when redeemed for a hotel stay, as there aren’t really that many great cash-equivalent redemption options.

Silver Status perks include:

  • 15% bonus on all the HHonors Base Points you earn.
  • 5th night free on Standard Room Reward stays of 5 nights or more.
  • Complimentary in-room and lobby Standard Internet access during stays at Waldorf Astoria™ Hotels & Resorts, Conrad® Hotels & Resorts, Curio – A Collection by Hilton, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton™, Canopy™ by Hilton, Embassy Suites Hotels™ and Hilton Grand Vacations™
  • Two complimentary bottles of water per stay (at Waldorf Astoria™ Hotels & Resorts, Conrad® Hotels & Resorts, Curio – A Collection by Hilton, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton™, Embassy Suites Hotels™, Hilton Garden Inn™ and Hilton Grand Vacations™ hotels)

Hilton points redemption varies from month to month. You can use this search tool to see how much a hotel will cost in any specific area (i.e. Honolulu or Paris). Here are some example redemptions for the month of June:

  • Honolulu, Hawaii. Hilton Waikiki Beach is 40,000 points. Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort is 50,000 points.
  • San Francisco, California. Hilton San Francisco Union Square is 50,000 points.
  • Orlando, Florida. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando is 20,000 points.
  • London, UK. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London – Tower of London is 60,000 points.

This Citi Hilton card is the version with no annual fee, the first year or any future year. If you have this card and are looking to sign-up again, please note this fine print:

Hilton HHonors Bonus Points offer not available if you have had a Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature Card account that was opened or closed in the past 18 months.

There is also another card called the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card which has a $95 annual fee, but has better ongoing perks. I personally have the Reserve, but I can understand that some people prefer no annual fee.

Comments

  1. Applied and Approved for 13k

    Thanks!

  2. In the Hilton Honors Shopping Mall they do offer a limited array of gift cards, but the points don’t go very far. The 50k bonus on this card is enough to get a $100 gift card for a restaurant or retailer.

    • Yup. The best cash-equivalent I could find was maybe the $100 gaming chip for 40,000 points good at the Las Vegas Hilton. You can easily get double that value at a hotel stay, remember that you won’t have to pay taxes etc either (compare with the full price not just pre-tax room price).

  3. I wouldn’t take the $100 gaming chip if it’s actually for the Las Vegas Hilton…there is no more Las Vegas Hilton…HIlton dropped it last year.

  4. This credit card is awesome. I’ve had it for quite some time now, Hilton and Startwood are two of my favorite hotels.

  5. You can also get a companion coach ticket within the US on United for 40k points.

  6. I wish you can redeem this for 500 gift card. I never appreciated paying at least $100 a night for a hotel when you can get a very clean and private hostel room for a fraction of that.

    Even better : I plan to camp out at Hawaii at designed camping areas with shower, bathrooms and grocery and dining nearby for only $3 a night! Who needs the fancy, overpriced rooms when you can have some adventure for next to nothing!

    • You can’t get a very clean hostel and private hostel for a fraction of $100 in any major US city.

      • Actually a quick search at hostelbookers led me to a result of a highly rated hotel at San Diego that could be had for $80 for two people in a private room. And there aren’t usually extra charges on top of that like in a hotel. And of course shared rooms at a decent hostel could be easy found for around $25 a person.

        Last time I was in London I got a deeply discounted room in a hotel from a friend. But it was so private and quiet there that I end up sleeping instead of seeing the city! So I actually prefer a little “inconvenience” of the hostel so it keeps me out of the room and seeing places!

  7. Damn, I just got this exact card two weeks ago for only the 40,000 bonus points! I wish I waited!!!

  8. Brad Ford says:

    Hotel points can be a godsend when you need/want to book a room during high demand periods. For example, weekend rates in NYC between Thanksgiving and New Years are jacked up – points aren’t.

  9. the link to apply seems dead

  10. Is there any way of finding out when this offer expires? We have just gotten another card we need to spend $2k on within two months, but if I can take this out in the next four weeks it will work for us to do it.

  11. Ken in Georgia says:

    I just find one thing unattractive about this offer — it’s from Citi. I’ve never had a credit card from them that I eventually did not live to regret — issues such as missing reward points, posting my payments late so that I incur late charges, refusal to acknowledge disputes, etc. Perhaps I’ve just had bad luck, but these kind of problems happened over the course of many years with a number of accounts from them (including Hilton Honors). I finally just reached the point where I decided I will no longer knowingly do business with Citi. And it’s not like I’m a complicated customer either; I pay my balance in full each month — no revolving, no cash advances, no balance transfer strategies, etc.
