Will You Lose Free Nights If You Cancel a Hotel Card?

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 card.

Hotel Cards With Free Annual Nights

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!

Can You Use a Spouse’s Loyalty Account Number on a Card Application?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Shane, commented:

I received sign-up bonuses from the Hilton Honors™ Card from American Express and Citi Hilton Visa card.  My wife and I are trying to save up more points for a free trip.  If she gets an AMEX or Citi Hilton card under her name, can she use my Hilton loyalty number so the sign-up bonuses go into my account?

Excellent question, Shane!

Generally, you can NOT receive a credit card sign-up bonus if the name on the credit card application is different from the loyalty account.

As an alternative, Shane’s wife can apply and earn Hilton points from credit card sign-up bonuses in her own loyalty account.  Then, transfer the points to Shane’s account.  But there are some rules to know!

Can You Use A Spouses Loyalty Account Number On A Card Application

Don’t be Discouraged That You Can’t Earn Sign-Up Bonuses Using a Spouse’s Loyalty Account Number! Instead, You Can Earn the Points in Your Own Account and Transfer Them Over!

I’ll explain the rules and fees associated with transferring hotel points!
