Amex Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus, Get 33% More Hilton Points

American Express has a transfer bonus promotion going on where you can get 33% more Hilton Honors points when you transfer Membership Rewards points through 12/15/17. The regular transfer rate is 1000 Membership Rewards points = 1500, but with this promotion you get 1000 Membership Rewards points = 2,010 Hilton Honors Points, so just a bit over 1:2.

Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus

Offer Terms

  • Minimum transfer is 1,000 Membership Rewards points.
  • Redeem for this exclusive offer from 12:00 a.m. MT on October 20, 2017 to 11:59 p.m. MT on December 15, 2017, to receive 33% additional Hilton Honors Bonus Points.
  • The additional Hilton Honors Bonus Points will be awarded at the time of transfer.
  • Hilton Honors Bonus Points do not count towards elite tier qualification.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

Even with the 33% bonus, this transfer probably won’t make sense for most people. Hilton points are some of the least valuable out there, usually valued at 0.4 cents per point, so this will give you less than 1cpp for your Membership Rewards. However 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?
