To signup for credit cards you can click here or on the “other credit cards” tab on top of the DansDeals logo banner to view links for card offers. Then just click on the link to “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.


how long does it take to get the certificates once you meet the spend?

Between 1 and 3 1/2 weeks after statement close.
I paid off the minimum spend requirement on 2 cards (and the payment posted) before the statement closed and received the certificates from both cards within 24 hours after statement the closed.

Its 37 days from the day the fee was charged, per a Citi rep. (....)
I still have 2 questions:
-Wont the free night certificates be voided if I cancel the card? (T&C says: "Your Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card account must be open and current at the time the certificate issued."
-I'm still not sure how long it takes to get the certificate, maybe longer than 37 days?

I met the spending, statement closed, but didn't receive anything.
How long after statement close?
Give it 10 days if you don't see anything contact them. Make sure that you gave them your frequently used email.

The fee was charged for me a few days ago, it was on the closing of the first statement.

Whom do I contact?
Both, Citi and Hilton say it could take up to 6-8 weeks.
I don't have time to wait that long ($95 annual fee must be lifted...).

Send Citi an SM. Other than that there usually is a clause that says that it may take 6-8 weeks.....

Not really a surprise, they advertised them as working at all non-suite Hiltons.
They'd have a major class-action if they backed off of that.

But T&C says limited to cat 1-7, so they're safe to do so.
@Dan, what do you think, can I cancel my card now?
