Million Mile Secrets reader, Shane, commented:
I received sign-up bonuses from the Hilton HHonors™ 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!
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!

Update: After March 31, 2017, transferring hotel points to Southwest no longer counts towards the Companion Pass. But here’s how to earn Companion Pass points when booking paid nights at hotels.
Million Mile Secrets reader, John, emailed:
I’d like to earn the Southwest Companion pass in early 2017 so it will be valid for ~2 years. I currently have 200,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points. Can I transfer the points to Starwood, then to Marriott so I can take advantage of the Hotel + Travel Package?
John knows Chase Ultimate Rewards points, when transferred straight to Southwest, do NOT count towards the Southwest Companion Pass. But transferring hotel points to Southwest do count.
While you cannot transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Starwood, you can transfer them directly to other hotels, like Hyatt, IHG, and Marriott.
If You Have the Southwest Companion Pass, You Can Take a Travel Buddy to Costa Rica for the Cost of Taxes & Fees!
I’ll show you which hotel points you can transfer to Southwest. And if it’s a good idea!
