New: Earn 3 Hilton Honors Points With Every Dollar Spent on Lyft Rides

Imagine earning Hilton Honors points on your way to the airport, on your way home, or traveling from one point to another within a city while you are traveling.

You do not have to imagine that any more, as you can earn three Hilton Honors points with every dollar you spend on eligible rides with Lyft — excluding taxes, fees, tolls and gratuities — effective immediately as the result of a new partnership between the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program and the Lyft ride sharing service…

…but in order to take advantage of this offer, you must link your Hilton Honors account and Lyft account; and your rides must occur within the United States and Canada.

If you do not yet have a Lyft account, this is your opportunity to enjoy a discount of five dollars off of each of your eligible three first rides — meaning that you enjoy a total of $15.00 in discounts — within 60 days of signing up as a new user of Lyft.

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

Lyft users who have linked accounts may earn Hilton Honors points on up to a maximum of $10,000.00 in United States dollars of eligible Lyft spend per calendar year.

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.

Lyft is not available in all locations, including Puerto Rico. Lyft ride credits valid for Lyft users 18 years of age and older only. When calculating Points earned, fares will be rounded to the nearest dollar, and then any promotional offer will be calculated on the rounded amount. Lyft credits can only be used on the Lyft app and are not redeemable for cash. Lyft credits cannot be transferred or combined with other offers. Any charges exceeding the Lyft credit value will be applied to your personal payment method.

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.

Hilton Honors points can take up to 24 hours after your ride is completed to post to your Hilton Honors membership account. If greater than three business days have passed since you completed your ride and Hilton Honors Points have not been posted to your account, please validate the ride in question via the Lyft Help Center. Once your ride has been validated, please contact the Hilton Customer Support Team.

You cannot earn Hilton Honors points as a driver for Lyft; and you cannot earn Hilton Honors Points on Scooters.

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

I think that this is a great new option to earn Hilton Honors points — and I am considering taking advantage of it…
