Another No-Fee Hilton Card Hits A High Mark – 75,000 Hilton Points!

Written by Charlie

Now Citi has taken their no-fee card to new heights with the Citi Hilton 75,000 point offer. That is a lot of points that can get you a lot of value at a variety of Hilton hotels.

Last week, we saw an increase to the no-fee Hilton card from American Express and now Citi has joined in the fun by taking their no-fee version to their previous high mark as well. If you ever wanted Hilton points, now is a great time to get these cards!

Another No-Fee Hilton Card Hits A High Mark- 75,000 Points!

This Citi Hilton Visa is similar to the Amex Hilton that it has no annual fee and comes with Hilton Silver status (barely worth anything but better than nothing). But, this card gives you a fast track to Gold status by staying 4 times at Hiltons in the first 90 days of having this card. The Amex card’s only route to Gold status is by spending $20,000 in a year. Of course, getting either big brother Hilton card (the Amex Surpass or Citi Hilton Reserve) will also get you Gold status just for holding the card(s).

Here are the details of this card and the offer:

This is the second time that it has it this high mark of 75,000 points (it previously hit it last July). Given that this is Hilton, it is good to understand that that amount will still not get you a free night at the top tier during peak time but it is still plenty of points for the mid-tier range.

Here are the details:

  • Earn 75,000 Hilton points after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months
  • Earn 6 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points for each dollar of eligible purchases charged directly with a participating hotel or resort within the Hilton HHonors portfolio of brands
  • Earn 3 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points for each dollar of eligible purchases at drugstores, at supermarkets, and at gas stations
  • Earn 2 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points for all other eligible purchases on your Card
  • Annual Loyalty Bonus – Earn an annual loyalty bonus of 10,000 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points at the end of each calendar year in which you spend $1,000 or more on stays within the Hilton Portfolio
  • Enjoy complimentary Hilton HHonors Silver status with your Card.
  • Annual Membership Fee: $0


This is a solid offer on a good card to hold on to. It has no annual fee and has some decent earnings with spending for Hilton, besides giving you 75,000 points after meeting the minimum spending. I would definitely get this card if you value Hilton points at all.

  • IMPORTANT: I confirmed with CITI today that the ONLY exclusion for not receiving the bonus is if you have opened or closed a CITI Hilton account in the last 18 months. If neither of those specific events pertain to you, then you will receive the bonus after completing your minimum spend in 3 months.

    • That is true with all of their cards as well. If you currently have one, just don’t close it (if it was issued over 18 months ago) and you will be fine. This is what I have done with my AA cards.

      • After the points have posted should I close the old one? Serves no purpose except for longevity. Supposedly CITI was going to start offers similar to AMEX (i.e $10 statement credit when you spend $50 at XYZ) but I haven’t seen anything like that on any of my CITI cards. So it’s hard to justify keeping the account open.

        • I have seen some offers like discounts on rental cars but nothing like Amex. I certainly would close it out but move the credit line to an existing card first (something I sometimes almost forget to do in the moment!).

          • Thanks! I certainly won’t close it until well after the bonus points post on the new one. Would like to wait just a bit longer to see if those rumored CITI offers comparable to AMEX ever materialize.
