Time to remove the Citi Hilton cards. Links are dead.

After signing into to my Marriott rewards account, I received a targeted banner for the Marriott business version of the card for 100,000 Marriott points after $5k in spend over the first 3 months. Haven’t seen this offer posted anywhere else yet and thought I would give others a heads up.

Greg The Frequent Miler

Wow, that’s great! Do you have status with Marriott already? Would you mind emailing me a screenshot of the offer? frequentmiler at gmail dot com.

The Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve application page at https://www.citi.com/credit-cards/credit-card-details/citi.action?ID=hilton-hhonors-reserve-card does not have the usual language limiting the 2 weekend night bonus to prior card holders. However, that language does appear on the application page for the Citi Hilton HHonors card (75k points): “not available if you have had a Citi® Hilton HHonorsTM Visa Signature® Card account that was opened or closed in the past 24 months” Does anyone know if they really are honoring the 2 weekend night bonus to prior HHonors Reserve card holders who opened or closed it within 24 or 18 months?

Greg The Frequent Miler

Unfortunately, if you click on the link at the bottom of that offer page “2 Additional Information”, you’ll get to a page that includes the terms:

Weekend Night Certificates offer is not available if you have had a Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card account that was opened or closed in the past 24 months.

Thanks so much for putting this – and the airline one – together. It’s really helpful for my next AOR since I’ve been away from it for a while. Will definitely support you. Thanks.
