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’ll explain the new offer!

What’s the Deal?

Link:   My Review of the Citi Hilton Visa

Until October 31, 2015, you’ll earn 75,000 Hilton points after you spend $2,000 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your Citi Hilton Visa account.

Plus, you’ll now get a $25 statement credit when you spend $200+ on an Alamo, Enterprise, or National car rental in the 1st 4 months of account opening.

The statement credit is separate from the sign-up bonus.

If you do choose to spend $200+ on a car rental to earn the $25 statement credit, I suspect it will count toward the $2,000 minimum spending requirement, as long as it’s within the 1st 3 months of opening your account.

That said, it’s always a good idea to exceed the minimum spending just in case!

Note:   If you were recently approved for the 75,000 point offer (without statement credit), it’s worth calling Citi to ask if they’ll match you to this new offer!

This is a terrific deal, especially because the card has NO annual fee!  Normally, the sign-up bonus is 40,000 Hilton points (and no statement credit) after meeting the minimum spending requirement.

With this card, you’ll also get:

  • 6 Hilton points for every $1 you spend at Hilton hotels
  • 3 Hilton points for every $1 you spend at supermarkets, drugstores, and gas stations
  • 2 Hilton points for every $1 you spend on everything else
  • Free Hilton Silver elite status (late check-out, 2 free bottles of water, and 15% points bonus on Hilton points earned)
  • Free Hilton Gold elite status (free breakfast and internet) after staying 4 times at Hilton in the 1st 3 months or after spending $20,000 on purchases in a calendar year
  • 10,000 Hilton points each calendar year you spend $1,000 or more at Hilton hotels
Hilton hotels include Conrad, DoubleTree, Embassy SuitesHampton InnHiltonHilton Garden InnHome2SuitesHomewood Suites, and Waldorf Astoria brand hotels. Note:   This isn’t a good card for overseas travel, because it charges a 3% foreign transaction fee.

If you’re more frugal-minded, you could stretch the sign-up bonus for up to 20 nights in category 1 Hilton hotels.  Or 10 nights in category 2 hotels.

No matter your travel style, you’ll get the 5th night free on Hilton award stays of 5+ nights if you have the Citi Hilton Visa.  That’s because it comes with Hilton Silver Elite status!

And if you need more Hilton points, there are plenty of ways to earn them!

Bottom Line

You can still earn the increased 75,000 point sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements with the Citi Hilton Visa.

That’s worth up to 20 hotel nights in a category 1 Hilton hotel!  Or a fancier stay at an upscale resort!

Plus, you’ll now get a $25 statement credit when you spend $200+ on an Alamo, Enterprise, or National car rental in the 1st 4 months of opening your account.
