New Citi Hilton Bonus: 75,000 Points, No Annual Fee

I know it’s been a tough week for everyone, what with Brexit, the weather and Kevin Durant going to the Warriors. So here’s a little something to cheer you up:

Normally, this card gives in the 40,000 – 50,000 point range, but there’s a limited time only offer for 75,000 points now, once you spend $2,000 within the first three months of opening it. Hilton is unusual in that it has two major financial services companies as credit card partners, American Express and Citi, so there always seems to be some kind of promotion going on.

For those who value having a wide selection of hotels to choose from at all price points, nothing beats the Marriott and Hilton programs. Here’s a good chance to get started with the latter. 75,000 points will be enough to get you a room atĀ almost any hotel in the Hilton system, and probably a couple of rooms. You’ll also get bonuses based on where you spend your money and Silver Elite status. Silver is the lowest of the statuses, but it still gets you a few benefits above the basics.

The big deal for this card is the lack of annual fee, which means that you’re essentially getting 75,000 points for free.* I never make a big deal about annual fees, since the sign-up bonus almost always exceeds what you would pay, but it’s a savings of a few bucks. You can get the card on the Credit Cards for Charity page through this banner:


*Technically, it is costing you $40, which is what you would have earned if you had used a 2% card. Of course, if you value the Hilton points at about $.005 each, which is where I value them, you would be getting a minimum of 1% in value on your spend, so the total cost is $20.
