Heads up! The Citi Hilton cards may be going away much more quickly than we thought!
Via Reddit, the cards have vanished from Citi’s main card page (except when you use Safari).
This link for the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card currently works in all browsers. But the link for the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card only works in Safari (or possibly mobile).
While this could be a browser issue, the fact that the cards have also disappeared from Hilton’s website strongly suggests the cards are being pulled in the near future. So if you’ve been considering applying, I’d do so sooner than later.
Emily and I don’t earn a commission for the Citi Hilton cards, but we’ll always let you know about new or expiring deals.
Is It the End for the Citi Hilton Cards? Links Are Disappearing Quickly
I’ll help you decide if it’s worth applying for these cards while they’re still available!
Via Monkey Miles, some folks will get a big discount when buying Hilton points!
Hilton has a targeted offer for a 50% discount through June 23, 2017. That means you can buy Hilton points for as little as 0.5 cents each!
So if you’re one of the Hilton members targeted for this offer, and you’ve been considering buying Hilton points, now is a great time!

I let you know about the changes Hilton recently made to their awards program. And via The Gate, Hilton launched their new points pooling option today!
With points pooling, you can combine Hilton points with friends or loved ones for free. That’s great news, because Hilton used to charge $2.50 for every 1,000 points you transferred to another Hilton member.

Million Mile Secrets reader, Carberrie, commented:
I have the Citi Hilton Reserve card, which comes with an annual free weekend night at certain Hilton hotels after spending $10,000 in a membership year. I met the spending requirement and have 1 year to use the free night. If I cancel the card to avoid paying the annual fee, will I lose my free night?
The good news is after you earn the free night, you will NOT lose it. Even if you cancel the card.
This policy is similar for other hotel credit cards that come with a free annual night, including some that don’t have a spending requirement, like the Chase IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card.
Emily and I Used a Free Night From the Citi Hilton Reserve Card to Stay at the Hilton Molino Stucky in Venice, Where Rooms Can Cost $500+ per Night During Peak Months
I’ll remind you which cards come with a free hotel night each year. And why it might be worth it to pay the annual fees to keep these cards open!
