I received an email today from Citi, explaining that my Citi Hilton card (the base one), was eligible for 3 extra points per dollar on Hilton purchases.

This means if you spend $1,667 between now and 5/31/2017, you’ll get the normal point differential (6 points per dollar) plus the additional 3 points per dollar, up to 5,000 extra bonus points. This is equal to ~15,000 Hilton Honors points.

While this could be a good promotion, if this is the only Hilton card you have. If you have either the Citi Hilton Reserve or the American Express Hilton Surpass, you’d actually get more bonus points for the same spend (16,670 and 20,004, respectively).

Again, this is a targeted offer, and you’ll need to register through your Citi online account. Look for the e-mail subject line “✔You Qualify to Use Your Citi® Card to Earn Hilton HHonors Bonus Points: It’s So Simple to Sign Up!” Clearly Citi hasn’t gotten the message that it’s just Honors now 😉 .

Did you receive this offer from Citi and Hilton?
