Transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Hilton Honors and receive 50% bonus points

American Express revealed a new transfer bonus this week – and if I recall correctly this is the first time we have seen it for this transfer partner! That partner is Hilton Honors and until August 31 when you transfer your Membership Rewards points to Hilton Honors you’ll receive a 50% bonus. The regular conversion rate is 1:1 which means with the bonus you’ll receive 1.5 Honors points per Membership Rewards points. It is well known that the conversion to Hilton at 1:1 isn’t the greatest value when you compare it to the other hotel conversion option with Marriott Bonvoy but for some of you this bonus may be just what you need to top off your Hilton account for a free night redemption or maybe Hilton Honors is your main hotel program and you don’t even touch Marriott Bonvoy or other programs and you can use the extra points easily. Either way it is nice to see this new transfer bonus from American Express! For me I received details on this bonus for my American Express Gold Rewards card but the offer should work for any card that earns Membership Rewards points
