Amex Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus, Get 30% More Hilton Points

American Express has a transfer bonus promotion going on where you can get 30% more Hilton Honors points when you transfer Membership Rewards points through 11/30/18. The regular transfer rate is 1000 Membership Rewards points = 2000, but with this promotion you get 1000 Membership Rewards points = 2,600 Hilton Honors Points.

  • Hilton Honors Bonus Points do not count towards elite tier qualification.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

Even with the 30% bonus, this transfer probably won’t make sense for everyone. Hilton points are some of the least valuable out there, usually valued at 0.4 cents per point, so this will give you a value of just over 1 cent for your Membership Rewards. Not terrible, but not the best use of your Amex points. You could use this promotion if you need some more Hilton points towards a redemption, or to keep your Hilton points from expiring.

Anyone planning to take advantage?
