American Express is offering a bonus of 30-50% on transfers to Hilton Honors for select Membership Rewards accounts. To see if you are eligible, log in to your Amex account and head to the Membership Rewards transfer page. The promotion is valid on transfers through December 31, 2018, and the minimum transfer required to receive a bonus is 1,000 Membership Rewards points.

Transfer Amex to Hilton with up to 50% Bonus

Key Terms

  • Promotion valid through December 31, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Time)
  • Not all Membership Rewards accounts are targeted for this offer
  • 30% bonus generates 2,600 Hilton points per 1,000 Amex points
  • 50% bonus generates 3,000 Hilton points per 1,000 Amex points

Amex Terms and Conditions state: “Please allow up to eight weeks for the additional Hilton Honors bonus points to be awarded.”

However, there are widespread reports that the bonus points are posting instantly. Before making a large transfer, we strongly recommend sending a test transfer of 1,000 points to verify that you receive the expected number of points immediately.

Our Take

The normal transfer ratio for Membership Rewards to Hilton is 1:2, with a minimum transfer of 1,000 points required. Most travelers will get greater savings by transferring Amex points to airline partner programs at a 1:1 ratio and using them for flights.

Those targeted for the 30% bonus will probably want to pass on this offer. The 50% bonus makes this a bit more interesting. Hilton’s top-tier properties cost 90,000 points per night, which might be a solid use of 30,000 Membership Rewards—especially if the paid rate is hundreds of dollars per night.

If you find any great values through this promotion, we'd love to hear from you in the comments.
