My wife and I both have Hilton points, less than 60,000. Is there a way to transfer our points so we could get a 3rd night in addition to our 2 weekend nights? We just spent 3 nights at the Waldorf Astoria New York using my 2 nights. Had a great time.
I’ll explain how to do it!
The Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card
Link: Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card
By signing-up for the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card and spending $2,500 on purchases within the 1st 4 months, you can earn 2 weekend nights (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) at almost any Hilton hotel.Hilton hotels include Conrad, DoubleTree, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn, Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Home2Suites, Homewood Suites, and Waldorf Astoria brand hotels.
Plus, you’ll earn a $100 statement credit when you spend $100+ on your 1st stay at a Hilton hotel within the 1st 3 months. This more than makes up for the $95 annual fee, which is NOT waived the 1st year.
But this offer expires tomorrow, June 8, 2015!
Can You Pool Together Hilton Points for Another Night?
Link: Sharing Hotel Points
Link: Transfer Hilton Points (Must Sign-in to Your Account)Yes!
Sirjim38’s wife can transfer points to his Hilton account (or any other Hilton member’s account) for a fee. She must transfer in 5,000 point increments at a cost of $12.50 per 5,000 Hilton points. So if she transfers 30,000 Hilton points it will cost $75.
The fee may not be worth it depending on regular cash price of the hotel. So do the math before you transfer the points!
Other Important Terms:
- It can take 24 hours for the transferred Hilton points to post
- You can transfer a maximum of 200,000 Hilton points per year
- Transferred points do NOT count towards Hilton elite status
How to Redeem 2 Weekend Nights + Points for a 3rd Night
If Sirjim38 redeems his 2 weekend night certificates for Saturday and Sunday night, he can use his points to add Monday night to his stay.
To make the reservation call 800-446-6677.Note: The 2 weekend night certificates you earn with the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card expire 12 months after they are issued.
You can earn 2 weekend night certificates with the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card when you complete the minimum spending. The weekend nights are good at almost any Hilton, so you can save thousands of dollars at some of the most expensive Hilton hotels.
You can also earn a $100 statement credit when you spend $100 or more on your 1st stay at a Hilton hotel within the 1st 3 months of opening your account.
This is a great deal because it makes up for the $95 annual fee. But it expires TOMORROW, June 8, 2015.
And if you want to share Hilton points with a friend or family member to stay more nights, you can transfer points for a fee of $12.50 per 5,000 Hilton points.
Remember, this is only worth it under certain circumstances. Because you can book hotels for others using your points.
