Earn 1,000 Hilton Honors Points on Your Next Ride by Lyft

A new partnership between the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program and Lyft was announced back in May of 2019 through which you can earn three Hilton Honors points with every dollar you spend on eligible rides with Lyft — excluding taxes, fees, tolls and gratuities — and effective immediately, you can earn 1,000 bonus Hilton Honors points simply by linking your Hilton Honors membership account with your Lyft membership account…

Earn 1,000 Hilton Honors Points on Your Next Ride by Lyft

…but you must link your membership accounts prior to completing an eligible ride operated by Lyft by Friday, November 15, 2019 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Standard Time.

An eligible Lyft ride is any paid Lyft ride — which includes Lyft, Lyft XL, Lyft Black XL, Lux, and Lux Black — requested and completed using the Lyft mobile software application program within the United States or Canada after registering the linked account.

Earn 2 Hilton Honors Points With Every Dollar Spent on Lyft Shared Rides

If you prefer to save money using Lyft on shared rides, you can earn two Hilton Honors points with every dollar you spend on eligible shared rides with Lyft — excluding taxes, fees, tolls and gratuities — effective immediately within the United States and Canada.

An eligible Lyft shared ride is any paid Lyft shared ride which is requested and completed using the Lyft mobile software application program within the United States or Canada after registering the linked account.

Keep in mind that when Lyft fares are split amongst multiple users, only the user requesting the ride will earn Hilton Honors points.

Select Terms and Conditions

You must be a member of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program — you can join now free of charge if you are not yet a member — in order to take advantage of this partnership.

You cannot be credited with Hilton Honors points for Lyft rides which occurred prior to linking your accounts. You must first link your accounts prior to your next eligible Lyft ride in order to receive credit.

Hilton Honors members who have a linked account prior to the start of the Promotional Period are not eligible for this offer. Members who de-link and re-link their Lyft accounts during the Promotional Period are not eligible for this offer. Offer valid one-time only. Offer is non-transferable.

The 1,000 bonus Hilton Honors points will appear in your membership account within four weeks of the end date of the promotional period. Bonus Hilton Honors points do not count toward elite tier qualification. This offer may be terminated without notice.

To ensure that your accounts are actively linked, visit Connected Services within the Lyft mobile software application program. You should see a Hilton Honors logo if your accounts are successfully linked.

A maximum of only one Hilton Honors account may be linked to a Lyft account; and a maximum of only one Lyft account can be linked to a Hilton Honors account.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program; those of the Lyft ride sharing service; and those of the partnership between Hilton Honors and Lyft — apply.

Summary

Although this partnership between Hilton Honors and Lyft is great news if you have always wanted to earn Hilton Honors points while using ground transportation, you should still compare alternatives if you are sensitive to price, as Lyft will not always be the least expensive option.

Also, keep in mind that you will need to spend a minimum $5,000.00 on eligible Lyft rides — again, excluding taxes, fees, tolls and gratuities — to earn enough Hilton Honors points to redeem for a night at one of these hotel properties. That, of course, is assuming that you only use Lyft to earn Hilton Honors points…

…but the bonus 1,000 Hilton Honors points when meeting the terms and conditions of this promotion is a good start.
