FlyerTalk Forums Thread Wiki: [Now 60K] 50K Citi Hilton HHonors Visa
Please read: this is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread.
 
Last edit by: beltway
FAQ. (Thanks Philemer,sdsearch and everyone else) Please free to add/edit as you see fit.

[1] What's the most recent working link?

There's a 60K offer through 8/31/14. Landing page; application.

THIS is the latest link; Landing Page This link to the 50K offer has only a $1k spend requirement in the first 4 months.

There is also a time-limited 50K offer that includes a $50 stay credit. See Citi Hilton HHonors Visa – Limited Time Offer - 50K Points + $50 Statement Credit

[2] Is this card churnable?
Yes, it is.

[3] Do I have to close my previous card before reapplying?
No you don't. Obviously there's a limit, but nobody's ventured that far out...yet

Furthermore, if you cancel too soon before your next app, that could actually hurt you, since Citi may not "free up" the credit limit from the card cancel until as long as 6 months. So if you're going to apply in 6 months, it's better to not cancel beforehand.

[4] What is "AXON"?
A Hilton HHonors reward type restricted to holders of the Hilton American Express cards. People holding only the Citi Hilton Visa are ineligible for AXON rewards. (For details on this award type, see post #4 and post #11 in the sticky thread.)

[5] Should I apply for more than 1 Citi card together?
You can only apply for ONE citi card in a day.

[6] How long should I wait before applying again? 2 weeks? 2 months?
It doesn't matter as long as you're following two rules:

-Only 1 Citi application of any kind per week (at least 8 days to be safe, but some people are being denied even after 8 days, so the longer you can wait, the safer it might be).

-No more than 2 Citi applications of any kind in 60 days (65 days to be safe).

[7] How can I figure out when I should apply next?
To quickly calculate if your current date has been 60 or 65+ days between applications, use the following link. I just googled and book marked it:
http://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html. You can guestimate 60 days and then add/subtract to get the exact date.

[Now 60K] 50K Citi Hilton HHonors Visa

Got a decent offer today for a 50,000 Citibank Hilton Visa card. No fee, 50k once you spend $1,500 within 6 months. Also, gives silver membership and fast track to gold after 6 stays within 90 days of card membership. I don't think its a targeted offer.

*Edited*
50k $1,000 within 4 months

Thumbs up

Unlike the Visa 40K application that expressly states the amount of miles this one will require a leap of faith for those who have not received the original email. Not saying it ain't worth it though...

Anyone tried this yet?

Watch out for the T&C Barclay-style:

If you do not meet our criteria for the Visa Signature Card, your application may be processed for the Visa® Gold Card. The Visa Gold Card does not carry the same level of benefits as the Visa Signature Card.

To receive a Signature card, you must have an annual income of at least $35000, and you must meet our applicable criteria bearing on creditworthiness for the Signature card. Otherwise, you may receive a Gold card, provided you meet our applicable criteria bearing on creditworthiness for the Gold card. The Gold card does not have as many benefits as the Signature card. Your credit limit (Gold card) or revolving credit limit (Signature card) will be determined by your yearly income or assets and a review of your credit report. You will be informed of the amount of your credit limit (Gold card) or revolving credit limit (Signature card) when you receive your credit card. Some limits may be as low as $500. Please note that cash advances may be limited to a portion of your credit limit (Gold card) or revolving credit limit (Signature card).

Can anyone describe anything more about how you received this? I just applied and was approved under the 40k offer this past weekend. I'd like to request the offer be bumped up and it'd be nice to be able to describe it better. Any promo codes or similar? Did it come by email or mail?

Thanks!

Weird...
I got an offer today from them for a 40K one, otherwise identical. Since I had just signed up for the 60+k no annual fee amex I think I'm gonna pass on this one.

Both my wife and I were approved for the signature card instantly. FYI- She had recently got the lesser US DM Barclays card.

Already applied for the Citi-AA cards recently. Can they turn me down for this card as its also with Citi or is there a 60day-90days waiting with Citi to apply for another of their cards

Which airlines (miles) can Hilton points be converted to.

Also, can anyone confirm the bonus miles for this offer using the link.

Thanks

Nice bonus but I don't see the miles either.
I got the Amex Hilton recently so this would be a nice addition.

I haven't followed much of the 75k AA Citibank promo thread because wife and I used to churn and last year were both turned down when the real good promos came out. I did remember back from the churn days that only 1 credit pull from 2 personal apps within hours, so I went ahead and applied for the AA card right after this hoping that if I got declined it wouldn't count as a credit pull. I got the application pending, aka decline, but to my surprise my wife was approved! And she currently HAS a AA citi card from a few years ago! So I guess today I managed to pick up 75k AA miles and 100k HH points!

So not sure if it will indeed only count as only 1 app, but for those of you who are past AA Citi card holders and were considering this app, it may be worth a try the AA also even if expecting a decline.

The links in the Citi AA thread didn't show the bonus amount on the app page either - people had to keep the faith and apply, and were rewarded accordingly.

This link is untried and untested (until someone who didn't receive the 50K e-mail comes along and says otherwise). I received the 40K e-mail myself, so am asking myself now if I feel lucky... In any case I'll wait at least a few weeks after a 3-app bonanza for other cards last week.

I also got approved, but instead of getting a card, got a letter stating that since I have had an AA card before, I will not be getting another one.
