Citi and Hilton hotels just launched their new Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card, which is their new premium card with a sign-up bonus of 2 free weekend night certificates with no category restrictions, after making $2,500 in eligible purchases within 4 months of account opening.

  • Earn 2 weekend night certificates good at select hotels and resorts within the Hilton HHonors portfolio after $2,500 in eligible purchases within 4 months of account opening*
  • $95 annual fee.

Two free weekend nights at category 1-7 hotels including Conrad and select Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts can easily be worth $250+ per night, or $500+ total value. Booking the same nights using rewards points would cost 100,000-120,000 HHonors points. Room taxes are included with the certificates. Possibilities:

In the end, this is an attractive offer for casual travelers and want to stay in a really fancy hotel but you can’t imagine paying $300 a night. Alternatively, this card is good for constant travelers where Hilton is your hotel chain of choice. As noted there is a $95 annual fee, but compare with the perks and the $500+ value of two free nights. For future years, if you spend $10,000 in a year the free weekend night that should make it worth it to renew as well.

A weekend night certificate is valid for one (1) weekend night standard accommodation at category 1-7 hotels and select Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, subject to availability and excluding All-Inclusive or Hilton Grand Vacation properties. Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts that do not offer standard rooms are excluded. Weekend night certificate is valid at participating hotels in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio for twelve (12) months after the date of issuance, as noted on the certificate. The weekend night certificate applies to one (1) weekend night in a standard room and corresponding taxes; and does not apply to gratuities, resort fees or incidental charges. Redemption of certificate is subject to availability, terms stated on certificate, and rules of selected property.

Comments

  1. If my wife and I both apply do we get 4 certificates or is there a one offer/ household restriction?

  2. @whytax – Credit card approvals and promotions are always based on individuals, so yes you can double up with a spouse, partner, or just friend and get 4 certificates. :)

  3. I’m all over this, gonna burn some miles soon.

  4. Am I missing something, or is there no clear list of which hotels can be used for the 2 free nights?

  5. i spent my $2500, didn’t see any notes in the statement. anyone know if they just mail the certificates to you or something?

  6. Has anyone received these certificates? How do they arrive and how long does it take? I qualified over a month ago but haven’t seen anything yet and I don’t really know what I’m looking for (electronic or paper)

  7. I received 2 emails with electronic certificates a couple weeks after the close of the 1 st statement. Check or spam folder
