Limited time bonus of 5,000 Hilton HHonors points every 10,000 Citi Thank You Points that you transfer to Hilton. Citi currently transfers to Hilton at 1:1.5 ratio, so that’s 15k Hilton points for every 10k Thank You Points. With the 5k bonus, it’s now a 1:2 transfer. Hat tip to Flyertalk user piyush for the news.
“With ThankYou® Points Transfer you can soon be enjoying a FREE stay at more than 4,000 Hilton HHonors™ properties worldwide. For every 10,000 ThankYou Points you transfer between 10/31/13 and 12/31/13, you’ll receive 5,000 Extra Hilton HHonors Bonus Points from Hilton HHonors.”
- Must have a Citi Thank You Premier or Prestige card to make the transfer.

Value can be had here if you use your Citi Thank You points for hotels or hotel gift cards at 1 cent per point. For example, let’s look at the Hilton Colon hotel in Quito, Ecuador. It’s just a couple hours from me, and I plan to check it out soon. It costs 20,000 Hilton HHonors points per night, and generally after tax sells for $160-$280 USD a night! I just checked for a random Monday in early December and got $171 after tax for the cheapest rate. That would cost 17,100 Thank You Points, but you could just transfer 10k TYP to Hilton and get the room!
