Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card – 50,000 Bonus Points + $50 Statement Credit

citihilton180emvThe 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 a $50 statement credit after spending $50 on your first stay at any hotel within the Hilton Portfolio during the first 3 months of account opening*
  • Earn 50,000 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points after making $1,000 in purchases within the first 4 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 really only 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. You can use this search tool to see how much a hotel will cost in any specific area (i.e. Honolulu or Paris).

This card has no annual fee. If you are willing to pay an annual fee in exchange for a bigger bonus and better ongoing perks, check out the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card.


  1. Applied and Approved for 13k


  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.
