Hilton Honors is a direct transfer partner of several rewards programs including one major credit card rewards program: American Express Membership Rewards.
Partners that transfer to Hilton
AMEX Membership Rewards
Outside of using Hilton's own co-branded credit cards, American Express Membership Rewards is the best credit card partner for earning lots of Hilton Honors points. AMEX points transfer to Hilton Honors at a 1:2 ratio meaning that every 1,000 AMEX Points you transfer to your Hilton Honors account will give you 2,000 Hilton Honors Points.
American Express credit cards offer high earning rates that can net you the equivalent of 4X to 10X Hilton Honors points per $1 spent across popular everyday categories. They also offer high intro bonuses that can net you a significant amount of points thanks to the 1:2 transfer ratio.
If you're in the market for a luxury credit card, AMEX's personal and business Platinum credit card offers complimentary Hilton Honors Gold status which is a big plus if you're looking for a little more when staying at Hilton brand hotels.
