Having no foreign transaction fees are the best for me! plus two free nights isn’t too bad
Thanks to everyone for your candid comments on why you like and dislike the Citi Hilton Reserve credit card.
Emily and I just got back from our second honeymoon in French Polynesia, where we stayed at the Hilton in Moorea and in Bora Bora and got to experience the benefits of Hilton Gold status firsthand!
Food in French Polynesia is very expensive, but Hilton Gold status got us free continental breakfast which would otherwise cost $30 per person and free internet which was ~$15 per day – a saving of $75 per day. We also paid less to upgrade our entry level room, which we booked using Hilton points, to an overwater bungalows because of our Hilton Gold status.
Stay tuned for a full trip report next week!
