Cell Phone + Visa Card = Free Hilton Points

Mr. Deals received this offer yesterday and was extremely excited to share a promotion that he found. He even registered all by himself!

With this promotion you can earn a total of 5,000 Hilton Honor bonus points just by registering your mobile phone and an eligible Visa credit card:

  • Earn 1,000 points just for enrolling. Pretty simple, right!
  • Earn 4,000 points after spending $100 at any U.S. Hilton hotel by June 30th. You must use your registered card to pay for the hotel.
It took me a few tries to enroll one of my Visa credit cards, but finally worked. If it doesn’t work for you the first time, keep on trying or try another card. Good thing I have 6 visa credit cards that I was able to test out – third try worked like a charm. Once you get the first card working, you are then able to register two additional cards, which I had no issues with. Within seconds of registering I got my confirmation via text:
Unfortunately, from the way I read it, you are only able to get the bonus points once. So even if you registered three different Visa cards and spent $100 on each card, you will only get the 4,000 bonus points once.
For those of you who currently have a Visa card (f you don’t, go get one!) and do not mind a few additional text messages here and there from Hilton, this is a quick and easy way to get at least 1,000 points. This is also a great way to receive special offers from Hilton directly. I am curious to see how good these special offers really end up being! You can learn more about this promotion here.
Make sure to register prior to June 30, 2012 and your Hilton stay.
*Remember: Standard text messaging charges apply (just covering myself!)

  1. Thanks for the deal! Does the $100 have to be spent in one transaction or could it be several all using the same Visa card?

    • @Rebecca – I read the entire terms and conditions and could not find anywhere that specifies this simply. However, it does state you will get the 4k bonus points 6 weeks after your $100 qualifying stay or meeting the minimum spend which makes me believe that the $100 can be spread across multiple stays at Hilton using the same visa card.

    • @SM master – it needs to come through your amex statement as Hilton spend. My assumption is that hilton gift cards will not work.

    • @TJ – while it doesn’t specify my guess is if the charge hits your credit card after you register you are good. Keep me posted though.

  2. It says you can register 3 visa cards-do you get 1000 for each (plus 4000 if you put the spend on each)? Couldn’t find that in the T&C’s

    • @bothofus2 – I believe it is just a one time bonus of 1,000 points regardless of the number of credit cards registered.

  3. Do you know if you can just do the spend in a Hilton restaurant not necessarily tied to a room or does it have to be for a room or on expenses charged to the room?

    • @Susan – I am not 100% sure, but it really all comes down to how it shows up on your Amex bill. If it comes in as Hilton spend, you should be fine. But if it comes in at X restaurant which is at a Hilton hotel, that won’t work.

    • @Lourdes – These are good for Hilton HHonors points, however, you are able to transfer your HHonors points to partnering airlines (but will devalue the points slightly).
