The Deal

  • Get a 40% bonus when transferring Membership Rewards to Hilton.

Key Terms

  • Expires June 15, 2021.
  • 1000 Membership Rewards points = 2000 2800 Hilton Honors Points

Quick Thoughts

The 40% transfer bonus means every 1,000 points you transfer becomes 2,800 Hilton Honors points. Hilton sometimes sells its points for 0.5cpp, so if you were to buy 2,800 points during one of those sales it would cost $14. If you were to transfer while this bonus is being offered, it effectively means you’re getting 1.4cpp of value from your Membership Rewards based on what you could pay for those points. That’s not incredible value (as you can often get much better value by transferring to airline partners), but it’s not bad.  If you need Hilton points for a high value redemption, this is a pretty good option.

Hi Greg, back in summer 2020, in one of your podcast, a reader mentioned that the bonus portion of the similar promotion (ran in March/April 2020) is not posted and you believe it could be resolved with no issue. I am in the same situation and would like to hear if you know how did that turn out? (I reached out to AMEX back in April 2020 but they didn’t resolved it at all.) Thanks a lot!


Probably fair to say there was a 1000 to 3000 transfer bonus about two years ago–don’t know if it will come back, but I was able to take advantage of it.


Also 40% bonus with Marriott.


Do you think it would be worth it to stay at the Conrad Maldives for a honeymoon? 🙂

If you can’t earn enough points through other Hilton credit card signups, it’s certainly an option – especially if you’re not needing to transfer too many points. The Conrad Maldives is so expensive though, I’d find it painful to redeem 34k Membership Rewards per night for a 95k per night Hilton property.

btw, congrats on the upcoming wedding 🙂


Earn and burn. Saving “points” to burn real money is just flat out bad advice.
