I am not into churning credit cards for points. I get my fair share every year, but limit to very good deals (like the recently ended 100,000 Avios card). But when I do see a good deal, I apply and get it. The new Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card is one such good deal. Instead of awarding Hilton HHonors points, like such cards typically do, this cards initial offer is two weekend night certificates (after $2,500 spend)! This is, in my opinion a great deal, as pints have more restrictions than certificates and also, the points needed for most upper end locations is outrageous.2012-05-02 14.19.26.jpg

Here are some other cool rewards of the card:

  • Earn 2 weekend night certificates good at select hotels and resorts within the Hilton HHonors portfolio after $2,500 in eligible purchases within 4 months of account opening* 
  • Earn 10 HHonors Bonus Points per $1 spent on hotel stays within the Hilton HHonors portfolio*
  • Earn 5 HHonors Bonus Points per $1 spent on airline and car rental purchases*
  • Earn 3 HHonors Bonus Points per $1 spent on all other eligible purchases*
  • Enjoy the benefits of HHonors Gold status as long as you are a cardmember*
  • No foreign transaction fees on purchases*
  • Travel with ease and enjoy global acceptance with your Citi chip credit card
  • Earn an anniversary bonus of 1 weekend night certificate at select hotels and resorts within the Hilton HHonors portfolio each cardmembership year with qualifying purchases* 

As a long time Hilton HHonors member, I was in moment the card was announced. Other than the free night, the Gold status was another plus. I very rarely make it to Gold Hilton HHonors. Have been Silver for years.
