If you have a Citi ThankYou® Premier Card, check your email for the subject line “Earn 5 additional ThankYou® Points on stays within the Hilton Portfolio | Enroll in one click!”
The Citi ThankYou® Premier Card already earns 3x points on gas and travel, including of course hotel stays, so once enrolled you will earn 8 total ThankYou Points per dollar on Hilton stays, the normal 3 plus the bonus 5.
The 8x is valid through May 31, 2016 on your first $1,000 spent at Hilton hotels, including all these brands.
I value ThankYou Points at 1.9 cents each, so that’s an amazing 15.2% rebate on Hilton stays.
Unfortunately the one click enrollment isn’t working for me. I got this message on different days of trying.
I haven’t called in to activate the deal because I don’t have any plans for hotel stays before the end of May.
Did anyone else get the offer? Did you have any trouble signing up?
