In an unofficial promotion, you can now earn 1,000 bonus Hilton points when you link your Lyft and Hilton accounts and take one eligible Lyft ride. There is no official promotion page, although there are plenty of data points confirming the receipt of the bonus. The promotion runs through November 15, 2019.

Key Terms

Since the promotion does not have an official page, key terms are hard to come by, but so far we have been able to research the following:

  • Link your Hilton and Lyft accounts, and take one Lyft ride to earn a 1,000-point bonus.
  • The promotion period is from October 3 to November 15, 2019.
  • If you have Linked your accounts prior to October 3, 2019, you are ineligible even if you unlink and then re-link your accounts.
  • To earn the bonus, you need to complete an eligible Lyft ride in Canada or the US.
  • The promotion applies to Lyft, Lyft XL, Lyft Black XL, Lyft Shared, Lux, and Lux Black rides.
  • Allow up to four weeks for the bonus points to post to your account.
  • The promotion is valid for one bonus only.

Our Take

If you use Lyft and are a Hilton member, then this promotion is a no-brainer. It takes a couple of seconds, and you are on your way to 1,000 bonus points with your next ride. Overall the promotion is pretty good value considering the time it takes to participate. Although Lyft ended their partnership with JetBlue last month, you can still earn Delta SkyMiles and Hilton Honors points with every ride. If you use a value of 0.5 cents for Hilton and 1.5 cents for Delta, you'll get a 3% return on all Lyft spending in addition to what you earn from using a rewards card that earns extra points on transportation.

The big disappointment with this promo is the fact that it excludes those who have already linked their accounts, meaning many loyal customers won't get the chance to earn an additional 1,000 bonus points.
