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!
