I’ve written before about a 40,000 Hilton point offer along with a $50 statement credit for staying in a Hilton hotel.

But now, there is a 50,000 Hilton point offer along with the $50 statement credit, after spending $1,000 within 4 months.  This offer ends on April 18, 2014.

50,000 Points Citi Hilton Offer with $50 Statement Credit

Link:  50,000 Points Citi Hilton Card with $50 Statement Credit 

This is the best offer for the no-annual fee Citi Hilton card which I’ve seen.  You get free Hilton Silver status which gets you into the health clubs for free at Hilton hotels.  You also earn an extra 15% of your points on paid stays.

That said, if I had to choose only 1 Citi Hilton card, I’d pick the Citi Hilton Reserve (see here for a potential offer with a $100 statement credit) because you get free Hilton Gold status.

You get free internet and breakfast with Hilton Gold status so that will save you some money while traveling!

However, you also get free Hilton Gold status with the 50,000 Hilton point Citi offer, after completing 4 stays within 90 days of being approved for the card.  Then again, you can get it for free with the Citi Hilton Reserve card.

Bottom Line

It is nice to see a new offer on the no annual fee Citi Hilton card.  50,000 Hilton points won’t get you far, but this could be worth it if you have run out of cards to apply for.  Or if you have an upcoming stay in a Hilton and can get the $50 statement credit.

  1. Do you see a hitch if I asked them to downgrade our Reserve card to this one? I guess if they don’t, we just cancel before annual fee & apply for new one.

  2. If you downgrade, I don’t think you get the 50k points? You can apply for that while holding the reserve.

  3. Are you receiving a referral fee from this card?

  4. Phil, first line of the article

  5. Does it make sense to sign up for this card for the 50k, then down the road get the reserve card and transfer the points?

  6. I just signed up for the 40k version of this last week and haven’t gotten my card yet! Is it too late to get them to upgrade it to the new 50k version?

  7. I’m not big into Hilton. I do about 1 stay a year to keep my points active. What does 50K get you?

  8. I pretty much loathe the Hilton Honors program now. Year ago it was great. I maintained plat and gold consistently for the perks. However, they’ve devalued the points (and the executive club locations and quality) SO DRASTICALLY, TOO MANY times over the last few years that they are worth, quite literally, about a third of what they were worth just a few years ago. I’d use card this if I was in need of a single night at a Hilton coming up, but I CERTAINLY wouldn’t put a penny more than the minimum spend on the card. You get one free night at a decent hotel for 50k points. You can get two nights at a very mediocre hotel, in a rural location if you’re lucky.

  9. Approved! 50k on a card with a $17,500 CL and no annual fee is a no-brainer. Already have the Reserve and just hit the 2 free certs on that so will be taking a vacation at a Hilton soon that’s for sure.

  10. Are there any restrictions if you had one in the past? It’s been over a year since I cancelled my last HH card.

  11. Can I apply for a 3rd Citi Hilton card now?
    I got 2 of them from the (OLD) double
    browser trick 2 years ago.
    Thanks

  12. -from previous post- Both of my cards are still
    active even now. (I never can cancelled them due
    to the NO annual fees)

  13. @ David – I have 3 Hilton cards and 1 reserve card. You can keep getting these. Check flyertalk.

  14. I got my Hilton Reserve Card, spent $1000 the first month. Got my certificate for 2 nights say. Stayed at Grand Wailea Maui last weekend. They did a triple upgrade to an Ocean View suite. $1500 per night, Free Valet $35 per night, Free Roll-away $30 per night. Over $3000 and paid nothing!!!! Sweet…

  15. The Amex Hilton Surpass card comes with Gold status now as well. Not sure if that’s widely known. It has an annual fee and no statement credit. Also comes with Priority Pass membership. Just FYI.

  16. Can you use the $50 credit for stay at the Hampton Inn?

    • @cyprian – That makes sense because the free weekend night certificates with the Reserve are valid for only 12 months, so get the Reserve when you can use the free nights.

      @Drew – It doesn’t hurt to ask.

      @Ben – A few nights in a mid-range hotel, but none in a top tier hotel.

      @Justin – Congrats!

      @Lee Ann – I don’t see any in the terms.

      @Greg – That’s a sweet trip!

      @Damon – That’s true, but I still prefer the Reserve card because you get 2 free weekend nights.

      @Jafar – I believe so.

  17. Hi Daraius, I finally applied through your link, got message to contact the credit analysis dept. with a reference number, got approved for Visa signature! Thanks!

    • @Sammy @ Alexandra – Congrats and thanks for using our link!

      @ Alexandra – I’d get the Hilton Reserve card for 2 free weekend night certificates so that you don’t have to worry about the hotel cost.

  18. Just applied for my HHonors card.
    Thanks

  19. Darius,

    So you can only apply one of the HHonors card? I was wondering are there any hotels that are least expensive because most hotels are about $100
