Last call for Citi Hilton cards?



Last week, Hilton announced that starting January 1st 2018, American Express would be the exclusive issuer of Hilton’s co-branded credit cards.  So, what happens with Citibank’s two Hilton cards?  Can we still sign up for those cards for the sign-up bonuses until the end of December?  It’s unclear, but my guess is no.

At some point today, Citi’s Hilton application links have stopped working on some browsers.  For example, the current link for the Hilton Reserve card doesn’t work for me in Chrome, but it does work (at the time of this writing) in Firefox Private Mode.  On Reddit people have reported that links work through mobile browsers too.

This could all be a temporary glitch.  Similar issues have happened before.  But, my guess is that today, or maybe the next few days will be our last chance to sign up for these cards.

I’m still thinking about it, but my wife and I will probably try to sign up for the Reserve card before it’s too late.  The 2 free weekend night offer is excellent if you can find a good use for those weekend nights.

Here are the links that currently work (we will update these as things change)


Citi® Hilton Honors™ Reserve Card

Offer: 2 Free Nights: 2 Weekend Nights after 2.5K spend in 4 months. $95 annual fee is not waived.

You may have to try different browsers, phone browsers, etc. to get the link to work.

Note the 24 month language: Weekend Night Certificates offer associated with a new card opening is not available if you have opened or closed any Citi Hilton Honors cards in the past 24 months.
