In our interview series, we always ask, “What do you now know about collecting miles and points which you wish you knew when you started out?”
The most common answer interviewees give is that they wish they would have started sooner. Even if you’re unsure of your travel goals, starting to earn transferable points now will give you lots of options for your future trip plans.
Because transferable points programs have dozens of airline and hotel partners, you’ll have the flexibility to choose where to move your points when you’re ready to use them.

I wrote about the secret way to find better offers for the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card and Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card by making a test booking on the Hilton website.
But now, via Reddit, there’s an easier way to get in on the deal! You can now apply directly for the improved offers on the Citi Hilton Reserve and Citi Hilton Visa Signature cards – no test booking required!
That said, there’s now an even better deal on the Citi Hilton Visa for 75,000 Hilton points after meeting minimum spending requirements. So most of y’all will probably prefer to skip the 50,000 point offer!
