Increased offers on Hilton consumer cards

Stephen checked into a Hilton property the other day and when he connected to the hotel WiFi, he was redirected to a page with increased offers for the Hilton consumer credit cards. As these are the best publicly available offers for each of these cards, we have updated our best offers page accordingly.

Quick Thoughts

These offers each add 10,000 points on top of the previous public offers. Based on our Reasonable Redemption Value of Hilton points (0.48c per point), that’s worth about $48. That’s not a huge increase, but it is obviously better to get more points than fewer.

That said, if you’re in a two-player household, you’ll almost certainly be better off using a referral link from your other player. For instance, if Player 1 has an Amex Gold card (just as an example) that offers 30,000 Membership Rewards points per successful referral (YMMV, check your own referral offers in your account), they could refer Player 2 to a Hilton card and although Player 2 would receive 10,000 fewer Hilton points, Player 1 would earn 30,000 Amex Membership Rewards points for that referral, which we value at 1.55c per point, which comes to a Reasonable Redemption Value of $465 for that referral (and if you really prefer Hilton points, you could transfer those Membership Rewards points to Hilton and end up with far more Hilton points). It would be totally worth forgoing 10K Hilton points in exchange for a big referral bonus like that if you’re in a multi-player household.

It is also worth a mention that we sometimes see more interesting offers via Hilton WiFi. We have sometimes seen an offer for a couple of Hilton free night certificates on the Hilton Surpass in lieu of a points-based bonus. Points are certainly more flexible, though if you would more highly covet free night certificates, it might be worth periodically checking the offer when connected to Hilton WiFi (and let us know if it changes!).
