I carry both the Citi Hilton Reserve and the Amex Hilton Surpass in my wallet. I manufacture spend $40k a year on the Citi Reserve card to earn Diamond status. I also earn 1 free night each anniversary since I charge $10k+ on the card. I charge gas and groceries on the Amex Surpass since it earns 6x points. Any time I book a night at a Hilton hotel, I’ll put the charge on my Amex Hilton card since it earns 12x points. The Citi Hilton Reserve only earns 10x points.

I received a promotional e-mail today from Citi that is offering up to 6,000 bonus points when you book a stay on your Hilton Reserve card. Here’s how the promotion works:

  • Stay at any Hilton hotel or resort within the Hilton portfolio by February 28, 2015 and earn 2,000 bonus points.
  • Book the stay on your Citi Hilton Reserve card.
  • Earn up to 6,000 bonus points max.
  • Don’t forget to click the “Enroll Now” button in the e-mail to receive the bonus.
Citi Hiltion Earn 6,000 Bonus Points

If you have a Hilton stay coming up, be sure to look through your e-mails if you carry the Citi Hilton Reserver card. You can earn up to 6,000 bonus points now through February 28, 2015!

If you carry the Citi Hilton Reserve card, be sure to look for this e-mail if you have an upcoming stay you need to book! I’m not sure if this is a targeted promotion or if it’s going out to all Citi Reserve customers. I can confirm that my partner received the exact same e-mail.

Staying 3 nights will NOT earn you 6,000 bonus points. You would have to book 3 separate reservations in order to qualify for the 6,000 bonus points. The 2,000 bonus points is per stay, not per night. I am going to Seattle in February, so it looks like Citi will get my reservation this time over Amex. Although Amex earns 2 extra points per dollar, the 2,000 bonus points that Citi is offering will be far greater.
