I wrote that the increased 75,000 Hilton point sign-up bonus on the Citi Hilton Visa expired yesterday.
There’s good news! You can still get the increased bonus, along with a $25 statement credit for a $200+ car rental!
Citi says this deal will expire October 31, 2015.

I’ve written a series on ways to spend less on car rentals and about using AutoSlash to monitor your rental reservations for price drops.

Note: You should only use the codes if you’re qualified!
