The Hilton Lyft partnership offers the opportunity to earn and redeem Hilton Honors Points with the Lyft rideshare service. This is done by linking your Hilton Honors and Lyft accounts together. If you don't have a Hilton Honors account and/or a Lyft account, signing up for both are free.
Earn Hilton Points With Lyft
In order to earn points through this partnership, you'll need to have a Hilton Honors account and a Lyft account. You'll also need to link them.
As a Hilton Honors member, you will be able to earn 3 Hilton Honors Points per $1 spent on Lyft rides that fall under economy, luxury, and extra seats. You will earn 2 Hilton Honors Points per $1 spent with Lyft on shared rides. You'll be able to select the ride type when using the Lyft mobile app.
The Lyft app is available for the following platforms:
Link Hilton and Lyft Accounts
You can link your Hilton and Lyft accounts using the Hilton-Lyft Link. You'll need to log into your Hilton Honors account and agree to the terms and conditions of the partnership.
Once you do that, you'll be asked to log into Lyft using the phone number associated with your account. Lyft will text you a verification code to that number and you'll be required to enter the code they sent you on the website.
Once you do that, it will ask if it's really you and you'll need to confirm. You will then need to verify your identity again by entering the email address associated with your account.
If you enter the proper email, you'll be asked to accept the Hilton Honors Lyft Partnership.
Once you click accept, you're good to go! You'll be able to earn and redeem your Hilton Honors Points with Lyft. Do note that you will also get an email from Hilton Honors & Lyft stating that your accounts are linked.
Redeem Hilton Points With Lyft
Hilton Honors Points can be redeemed for Lyft credits. This gives your Hilton Honors Points a value of 0.22 cents per point. You can redeem your points with Lyft using the Hilton Lyft Redeem Points portal page. You'll need to sign into your Hilton Honors account.
Once you're logged into the redemption portal, you'll have to complete three steps in order to redeem your Hilton Honors Points for Lyft credits.
First you'll need to select the country that the Lyft credit will be used in. You can select United States or Canada.
Next you will need to choose the value of the Lyft Credit you would like to redeem your Hilton Honors Points for. You can redeem as little as 4,500 Hilton Honors Points for a $10 Lyft Credit or as many as 45,000 Hilton Honors Points for a $100 Lyft Credit. Remember, this will give your Hilton Honors Points a value of 0.22 cents per point. You can redeem up to 45,000 Hilton Honors Points per day.
Lastly, you'll need to enter the phone number of the account that's being credited. You can credit your own account or you can give Lyft credits to a friend or family member as long as you have the phone number associated with that users account. Be sure to type in the phone number carefully and to double check if you're entering someone else's number.
You'll then need to agree to the terms and conditions and click 'Redeem for Lyft Credits'. Within moments, you'll see the new balance appear in your Lyft account and you'll be good to go!
Being able to redeem your Hilton Honors Points for Lyft rides can be useful. It will not give you the best value for your Hilton Honors Points, but it's a great option if you're trying to save on rideshares.
If you're looking for more ways to earn with Lyft, they do partner with both Delta Airlines and Chase Bank. With Chase, you can earn either 5% cash back with Chase Cash Back Credit Cards or 10x/5x Ultimate Rewards Points with Chase's Ultimate Rewards Credit Cards.
