If you missed out on the better 75,000 Hilton point offer on the Citi Hilton Visa earlier this year, you’ve got another chance to get in on the deal!

You’ll earn 75,000 Hilton points after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening with the Citi® Hilton HHonors™
Visa Signature® Card
.  That’s the highest offer I’ve seen for this card!

And it’s a terrific deal because there’s no annual fee.

It's Back Earn 75,000 Hilton Points With No Annual Fee Citi Hilton Visa

Between the Sign-Up Bonus and Minimum Spending, You’ll Have Almost Enough Hilton Points for 4 Nights at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando

We don’t earn a commission for this offer, but Emily and I always share the best deals with our readers!

What’s the Deal?

Link:   My Review of the Recent Citi Hilton Visa 75,000 Point Offer

You’ll earn 75,000 Hilton points when you spend $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening the Citi Hilton Visa.  And you’ll get:

  • 6 Hilton points for every $1 you spend at Hilton hotels
  • 3 Hilton points for every $1 you spend at supermarkets, drugstores, and gas stations
  • 2 Hilton points for every $1 you spend on everything else
  • NO annual fee
  • Free Hilton Silver elite status (late check-out, 2 free bottles of water, and 15% points bonus on Hilton points earned)
  • Free Hilton Gold elite status (free breakfast at some locations, room upgrades when available) after staying 4 times at Hilton in the first 90 days of account opening, or after spending $20,000 on purchases in a calendar year
  • 5th night free on award stays (from having Hilton Silver elite status)
  • 10,000 Hilton points at the end of a calendar year when you spend $1,000 or more at Hilton hotels

There’s no annual fee, so can keep it forever and potentially boost your credit score.  But it’s NOT a good card to use overseas, because it adds a foreign transaction fee.

Note:   The minimum spending on this version of the card is higher than the recent offer of 50,000 Hilton points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 4 months of opening the card.  And it does NOT come with a statement credit.

But I’d gladly spend $1,000 more in minimum spending to earn an extra 25,000 Hilton points!

And if you recently received a lower bonus on this card, it’s worth calling Citi to see if they’ll match you to the better bonus!

Note:   The terms and conditions on this deal say:

This offer is only valid for new accounts.

So if you’ve had this card in the past, you won’t qualify for the bonus.

Remember, there’s still an improved offer (including a $100 statment credit) on the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card.  And limited-time better offers on the Hilton Honors™ Card from American Express and Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express until May 31.

  1. thanks for the news/alert Daraius, and reminders too of other available Hilton cards. Prompted me to check again your helpful May 19th, 2016 post about the no-fee 75k offer on the Amex version…… and this reminds me of this one comparative advantage for the Amex version:

    “5 Hilton points per $1 spent at US gas stations, US restaurants, and US supermarkets”

    (as compared to 3 for the Citi version)

    Hmmmmm….. appears I have just 3 days to get the Amex version — unless they again extend the offer.

    Since I managed to get the top Hilton Diamond status (via match) through next Feb., maybe wife & I will get both. 🙂

  2. Does anyone have experience matching offers with Citi? I just applied for the 60,000 point version of this card on Friday…. any chance they will match if I email them? I guess it never hurts to try

  3. For some reason the link sends me to a 40k points offer and not the 70k

  4. It’s not back exactly. When I applied for 75k offer earlier this year, the offer was opened for cardholders that haven’t this card opened or closed within last 18 months. Now Citi changed such “waiting period” to 24 months. Too bad, as my wife was waiting for this comeback and she closed her Citi Hilton credit card exactly 18 months ago 🙁

  5. @escot – Sounds like a plan! 🙂

    @Aarif – You’re right, it never hurts to try. Let us know if you have any luck!

    @Yus – Try refreshing your browser.

    @John – Hopefully this offer will come back again soon and give you another chance to earn some more Hilton points!

  6. @Yus – if you (can) use Google Chrome browser, open the link in an “Incognito” tab/window and you should be able to get right offer. Ensure to complete the application in the same tab/window where the right offer appears.

  9. Its saying 40k for me too. Maybe I was too late?

  10. Incognito works for me.

  11. Instant denial…that’s odd I’m usually denied after review. 790 FICO, 82K income, and approximately 37 million credit card applications in the past 6 months.

    Dare I say that I suspect that to be the reason of my denial…will try recon.

  13. I currently have a Citi Hilton HHonors card and got a second credit card for my wife so that she could help me meet the minimum spending requirements.
    She has her own Hilton HHonors account. Will she be eligible for her own card (and sign up bonus) that is connected to her Hilton HHonors account.
