Hilton Corporate Discount Codes
Hilton Corporate Codes are codes that are used to identify the negotiated rate a company has with Hilton Hotels and are entered in the “Corporate Account” field to calculate the reduced rate. These rates are generally used for employees of the company and may require proof of Corporate ID, but they are also used for consultants, vendors, and customers of the company that has the negotiated rate.
If you do not know the corporate code of the company you work for you may find it on this post. Otherwise, contact your HR Department to see if they can provide the Hilton Corporate Code that will provide the negotiated rate you are eligible to use.
Hilton MVP Code for Sports Teams
The Hilton MVP program is a program offered by Hilton to help reduce the cost of travel for sports teams. If you are a Coach, Manager, or affiliated with a sports program, you can use Hilton MVP Rates to get a 20% discount on your stay.

Hilton Small Business Program
Small Business Programs are a great way for small companies to get some level of discount for their travel spend with Hilton. They don’t offer the deep discounts you’ll find with the Corporate Rates large companies negotiate, but they can still offer some nice savings. Hilton has a program called “Hilton LocalBiz”. But unfortunately, it’s focused on the Asia Pacific region, so travelers from the U.S. and Europe cannot benefit from it.
Hilton Honors Credit Cards
The quickest way to earn Hilton Honors points, especially if you are not a road warrior, is through credit card spending and sign-up bonuses. With Hilton, you can earn miles through a variety of credit cards – either with a co-branded Hilton Honors card or with one that offers transfer options to Hilton such as American Express Membership Rewards. Here are the best credit cards for earning Hilton Honors Points and Hilton Elite Status.
Hilton Co-Branded Credit Cards:
When you earn points through a Hilton Co-Branded credit card, they automatically post to your Honors account each month – no transfer required.
- Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express (referral link)
- Hilton Honors Surpass from American Express
- Hilton Honors Card from American Express
You can really rack up the points on your stays when you use a Hilton Co-Branded Credit Card to pay for your hotel bill. For example, if you use the Hilton Honors Aspire Card (which provides automatic Diamond Status) to pay for your stay at a Hilton Hotel you will receive:
- 10x base points per dollar
- 10x bonus points for having Diamond Status (which comes with the Aspire Card)
- 14x bonus points from paying with the Hilton Aspire Credit Card
That’s 34 points for every dollar spent at a Hilton hotel!
American Express Cards with Hilton Honors Transfer Option:
American Express Membership Rewards Points transfer to Hilton Honors at a ratio of 2,000 Honors Bonus Points for Every 1,000 Membership Rewards Points (transfer ratios vary by country; this is the US rate). The following are the most popular cards that earn Membership Rewards Points:
- American Express Platinum Card
- American Express Gold Card (referral link)
- American Express Green Card
Hilton Honors Loyalty Program
Like most major hotel companies, Hilton has a loyalty program called Hilton Honors. The Hilton Honors program provides a variety of benefits for its members, including the ability to earn and use points at any Hilton Property, the ability to fast-track to elite status, late checkout, and much more.
Here are a couple of articles that provide a comprehensive overview of the program and the benefits of elite status.
If you aren’t a member of the Hilton Honors program yet, sign up. It’s free to join and only takes a few minutes to fill out the form. Here’s the link for Hilton Honors Registration.
Hilton Award Chart
Hilton no longer has a traditional award chart. What they now have is the Points Explorer Tool, which shows a range of the lowest and highest number of points redeemed at a particular property. To get the actual award pricing, you still need to go to Hilton’s website and search the specific dates you are looking to stay.
