UPDATE: The Citi Hilton cards are no longer open for applications, for the latest on Hilton's co-brand cards, we’ve covered all the changes in detail, along with earn rates and benefits for the new cards.
We reported earlier this week that Hilton was going with American Express as its main card issuer as of January 1, 2018. Shortly after the announcement, it seems that the links for Citi Hilton co-brand credit cards cannot be accessed from some browsers, but it works in others. At the Chrome appears to be the worst affected, although some links are also dead in other browsers. Whether this is a prelude to Citi stopping new applications altogether or a technical glitch remains unclear. However, some links still work, so there is enough time to earn those signup bonuses.
Given that we no longer see Citi cards listed on Hilton's website it sounds like the end is near.
Citi Hilton Honors Visa Signature Card
If you have not had a Citi Hilton card in the last 24 months, you can get a 50,000-points signup bonus after spending $1,000 in the first 4 months.
If you have had a Citi Hilton Card in the last 24 months, you will have to apply via the link below, which has a slightly less generous signup bonus of 40,000 points.
Citi Hilton Honors Reserve Card
If instead of points you're interested in free nights, this is the way to go. This card gives you 2 free weekend nights after spending $2,500 in the first 4 months of membership. If you've opened or closed a Citi Hilton co-brand card in the past 24 months, you're ineligible for the free night certificate bonus.
The Citi Hilton co-brand cards are clearly on life support. While there has been no official announcement from Citi that applications are no longer available, it looks as though they may not want any new cardmembers. If you are going to try and apply for one of these cards, you will probably have to try multiple browsers until you find one that works for you. So, you can still apply for the card, it will take some patience.
