[Expired] Citi Hilton 40,000 Point Offer – No 24 Month Language

The Offer

Direct link to offer

Card Details

  • No annual fee
  • Card earns at the following rates:
  • Complimentary Hilton Silver Status as long as you’re a cardholder
  • Fast track to gold status (four stays within 90 days of account opening or when you make $20,000+ purchases in each calendar year)
  • Annual loyalty bonus of 10,000 Hilton HHonors bonus points at end of each calendar year in which you spend $1,000 or more on stays with the Hilton Portfolio
  • Standard Visa Signature Benefits

Our Verdict

Normally you wouldn’t be eligible for this card if you’ve opened or close any other Citi Hilton cards (e.g this card or the Reserve card) within the last 24 months but this offer does not contain that restrictive language. If this rule doesn’t apply to you I’d recommend getting the Citi Hilton Reserve card instead as it comes with two free weekend nights and that’s a lot more valuable than 40,000 points (if you wanted points and no annual fee I’d just be patient as we regularly see 75,000 point offers on this card).

Be aware of are Citi’s application rules:

Also be aware that Citi will no longer issue Hilton cards from 2018 onwards. I’m hopeful that we will see more of these no 24 month language links leaked if American Express purchases the back book from Citi as they will likely want to inflate their cardholder numbers. As always if you are thinking of applying or have any questions, make sure you read through this list of things you should know about Citi credit cards first.

We also pointed out this offer to our newsletter subscribers in November of last year. Just reposting and making it public due to the Hilton news.

I currently have this card & its coming up to a year since I’ve had it….got 75k for getting it last year. I’ll cancel it now & wait for a 75k offer to appear & apply. I don’t think they are matching it if you apply for the 40k offer

williams or anyone, we can potentially get approved for the same card within its family while still having the existing one,correct? any rate, any pros or cons to either keep or cancel the hilton acct before applying for another?

Dan, My DP: I had the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card that I held for 2 years. After paying the renewal fee for year 2 I appled for a new card (same exact one) a couple months back. I was approved and after completing the minimum spend I got the 60,000 bonus miles posted to account. I then cancelled my old card and they gave me back a prorated amount of the renewal fee (most of it since I was 2 months in). I didn’t expect anything back from the renewal fee so that was a bonus. Now my 2 year clock starts again…..
So, my shorter answer is I believe it would be the same for the Citi Hilton card. You can keep it and apply for a new one.

Yeah I applied for my second AAdvantage card 2 weeks after I was approved for my first. Was just approved for this card. Plan to do the same in 2 weeks and get a second one.

Yes that is fine – but if you haven’t had any hilton card since 2014 I would go for the Reserve instead.

Jack, You can always apply for another one, but I think you mean to ask, will you be approved? See my response to Dan above. Hopefully this answers your question as well.

You might want to apply for the Amex Hilton Card for the sign up bonus.

Approved today via Jill’s Reddit link below, after applying last night and getting the dreaded “we need more info, please call” response. Must have been put on hold three times last night and then call dropped. Gave up for the night and tried again today. On hold three more times, but finally approved with nice CL. Thanks to Doc and Jill!

So this basically mean ONE night at Hilton?
Also, the 24 month language doesn’t mean anything now since there will be no Hilton card offer by Citi in 24 month as they will exclusively be offered by Amex.

It means everything…. if you currently have a card in the last 24 months you can get this card now.

The 24 months is for the application for the card, not future card applications.

I have this card and receive the 5th night free on reward stays which is the only reason I have kept it. This appears to be the same card but I dont see that listed as a card member benefit?

That’s the other Citi Hilton card

It’s a benefit of the Hilton Honors program; you have it as a card member since the card comes with Silver status. From Hilton’s web site:

WHAT IS THE 5TH NIGHT FREE BENEFIT ON REWARD STAYS?
Silver, Gold and Diamond elite members will receive every 5th night free on Standard Room Reward stays of 5 nights or more (up to 4 free nights on a stay of 20 consecutive nights).

Question is what do you value Hilton points. 40,000 gets you a night in an average/nice hotel, maybe worth $200. Most sites are valuing Hilton points at .005 or .5 cents. So do you want a hard pull for $200? What’s your minimum bonus requirement on a pull? Mine’s at least double that.

Has Citi been honoring the other non 24 month offers

Just tried the link in private window and in terms it says “This offer is valid for new accounts only.” SO this makes me think I would not qualify since I currently have this same credit card. Is this newly added or was it there all along and not enforced?
