You can calculate how many Hilton Honors Points you can earn with transfer partner credit cards by setting the 'View Rewards As...' option to Hilton Honors.

You can compare the results side by side any credit cards featured on the site to find out which earns you the most rewards and the best return. If cookies are enabled, all spend entered (primary/first column only) will carry over to all credit card calculators on the website.

Best Credit Cards For Hilton Honors Points

Your best option for earning Hilton Honors Points will come from using Membership Rewards credit cards since they're currently the only credit card option for earning a steady amount of points. You can use the Best Credit Cards For Hilton Points calculator to find out which cards earn you the most Hilton Honors Points based on your everyday spend.

Transfer Partners

Hilton Honors Points can be transferred to more than 40 different airline partners and Amtrak. Transferring to Hilton's partners will not earn you many airline miles or rail points, but it can be useful for topping off your account if you're a few rewards shy of a redemption.

You can also transfer rewards earned with other programs directly to your Hilton Honors account. This allows you to easily top off your Hilton Honors account which is the better option over buying points.

Earning Rewards

Hilton Honors Points are primarily earned by staying at Hilton brand hotels. You'll earn 10 base points per USD $1 spent along with bonus points based on your Hilton Honors Elite Status. You can pile on even more points if you use a Hilton Honors credit card.

In addition to staying at Hilton brand hotels, you can also earn Hilton Honors Points by spending with Hilton's partners. This includes renting cars and using Lyft's rideshare services.

Hilton Car Rental Partners

You can earn Hilton Honors Points booking car rentals through the Hilton Rental Car portal. This allows you to book cars with Alamo, Enterprise, and National. In additional to earning bonus points, you'll also earn discounts off the base rate.

Hilton Lyft Partnership

You can earn (and redeem) Hilton Honors Points with Lyft. Once you link your Hilton and Lyft accounts, you can earn up to 3 Hilton Honors Points. This is a great way to easily build your point balance if you frequently use the rideshare service.

Buying Rewards

If transferring points to your Hilton Honors account is not an option, the next option to instantly add points to your account is buying Hilton Honors Points. At the standard rate, Hilton Honors Points will cost you USD 1 cent per point. You can buy as little as 1,000 Hilton Honors Points for USD $10 or as many as 80,000 Hilton Honors Points for USD $800 in a single transaction with the ability to buy up to 80,000 Hilton Honors Points per year.
