A few months ago, we talked about 2 transfer bonuses. One of those (Amex 50% to Iberia) ended a few months ago, but the other one ends this week. So in case you missed it, or meant to transfer points and forgot, consider this your reminder.
While I always suggest starting with your destination in mind first BEFORE just signing up for credit cards, if you are going to just sign up for credit cards, signing up for ones with what we call “flexible” currencies is a smarter move than locking yourself into a specific currency. The advantage of these flexible currencies (like Chase Ultimate Rewards, American Express Membership Rewards or Citi ThankYou points) is that they can transfer to a variety of airline and hotel partners, so you’re better insulated from possible currency devaluations
Citi ThankYou points 50% bonus to Hilton HHonors
The other 50% bonus is Citi ThankYou points transferring to Hilton HHonors.
Normally you get 1500 Hilton HHonors points for 1000 ThankYou points, but for a limited time you can get 2000 Hilton points.
This isn’t one that I’d recommend unless you have a specific Hilton redemption in mind because generally I’d value ThankYou points at more than 2 times the worth of a Hilton point. We stayed at the Category 2 Doubletree in Johor Bahru Malaysia (10,000 points) and it was amazing
In order to get the bonus, you’ll need to transfer before 11:59 p.m. ET on February 8th (Wednesday)
