Hilton and Lyft have launched a new partnership. Just link your Hilton and Lyft accounts and earn:
- 3 points per dollar on Lyft rides
- 2 points per dollar on Lyft shared rides
- On up to $10,000 Lyft spend annually
Standard Lyft rides, then, can earn up to 30,000 Hilton points per year. I value Hilton points at 4/10ths of a cent apiece.
Later in the year they’ll introduce the ability to spend Hilton points on Lyft rides. I expect this to be a very bad deal.
Lyft and Delta also partner. You can link your accounts to earn 1 Delta SkyMile per dollar spent (2 miles on airport rides).
And you can link your Lyft and JetBlue accounts to earn 30 JetBlue TrueBlue points per airport ride up to 1200 points annually.
The terms of each program do not appear to exclude earning in each other program, so link your Lyft account to all of Hilton, Delta, and JetBlue. Lyft confirms to Nick Ewen that these offers are stackable.
When you pay with a World Elite Mastercard you get $10 Lyft credit for every five rides taken in a calendar month once per month to be applied to the next ride.
We still expect to see a Lyft Mastercard debut this year focusing on ride-related benefits.
