Through this month only, Lyft riders can earn a one-time bonus of 1,000 Hilton Honors points by linking their Hilton Honors and Lyft accounts online and completing an eligible Lyft ride in the U.S. or Canada by Oct. 31.

Hilton Honors members who have not previously linked the two accounts are eligible for this promotion when they request a Lyft, Lyft XL, Lyft Black XL, Lux, Lux Black or Lyft Shared ride, taken through the end of October.

To participate in this limited-time promotion, click here to sign in to your Hilton Honors account. From there, you must agree to the offer terms. After you accept those terms, you'll be redirected to sign in to Lyft, where you'll again accept the terms of the promotion. Upon completion, you should get a message that you've successfully linked your accounts, as shown below.

Once you’ve linked accounts and completed an eligible ride, your Hilton bonus points should be credited to your account within four weeks. Note: These points won’t count toward Hilton elite status qualification.

Lyft and Hilton Honors members can stack this promotion with other ongoing offers from the partnership, including 3 Hilton Honors points per dollar on Lyft, Lyft XL, Lyft Black XL, Lux and Lux Black rides and 2 points per dollar on eligible Lyft Shared rides.

Additionally, be sure to use a credit card that earns a bonus on travel for your Lyft rides; options include the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and Chase Sapphire Reserve, which earn 5 and 10 points per dollar, respectively, on eligible Lyft rides through March 31, 2025. That's on top of the 2 points per dollar and 3 points per dollar respectively earned by each card on travel.

Since TPG currently values Chase Ultimate Rewards points at 2 cents apiece, Sapphire Reserve cardholders can get a 20% return on Lyft rides, which is a great deal if you frequently use Lyft.

Note that this promotion is only for those who have not yet linked their Hilton and Lyft accounts; those who have already linked their accounts (and even those who unlinked and relinked) are not eligible.

Lastly, remember Delta flyers can earn SkyMiles on Lyft rides thanks to the company's ongoing partnership with Delta. You can earn 1 mile per dollar spent on eligible U.S. rides and 2 miles per dollar spent on rides to/from the airport; new Lyft users can also get a $20 ride credit.

Bottom line

LYFT

Whether you’re a regular Lyft rider or just use it for trips to the airport, this is a relatively easy opportunity to earn Hilton Honors points while stacking these bonus earnings on top of other earnings opportunities.
