You can now redeem Hilton points for Lyft rides

Have a stash of Hilton points you’re looking to use? Good news! You can now use your Hilton points for Lyft ride credits.
Through HiltonHonorsLyft.com, you can select a fixed amount of Hilton points to exchange for Lyft credits in increments of $10 to $100. The credits will be deposited into your Lyft account, and when you take your next ride, you can spend your credits to help offset the cost of your trip.
It’s as easy as that.
For example, you can exchange 4,500 Hilton points for a $10 Lyft credit, 11,250 points for a $25 credit, and so on and so forth.
Once you choose the value of the Lyft credit you want, you’ll be asked which account you’d like to use — meaning it’s possible to pass along the credits to a friend or family member if you don’t have a use for them yourself.
The Points Guy values Hilton points at 0.6 cents apiece, but at these rates, you’ll only be getting 0.2 cents per point. So, it’s likely better to use your points on Hilton stays rather than Lyft. That said, having options is always nice, and this is an easy way to burn a few thousand points if you don’t have a need for them otherwise.
Don’t forget, it’s also possible to earn Hilton points for Lyft rides when you link your accounts. You’ll earn 3 Hilton points per $1 spent on Lyft rides (economy, luxury and extra seats) and 2 points per $1 spent on shared Lyft rides. Be sure to use a card that earns a bonus on ride-share spending, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card or Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which earn 2X and 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points, respectively, on travel purchases including Lyft.
