Hilton Honors members, there’s currently a great opportunity to donate to a great cause, with Hilton rewarding you for your generosity.
Donate a Ride under Lyft, get Hilton Points/Delta Miles!
If you haven’t heard, Hilton and Lyft have an ongoing partnership that allows Hilton Honors members to earn bonus points for Lyft rides.
Recently, Lyft has launched its own vaccine access initiative, where the company is mobilising its partners and community members to provide access to 60 million rides to and from vaccine appointments. This is to benefit the less privileged communities across the United States.
Through May 31, 2021, Hilton Honors will award 2,000 bonus points to member who have their Hilton Honors and Lyft accounts linked while contributing at least US$5 to the Lyft vaccine access fund. On top of that, Hilton will also match all contributions up to $50,000! I personally value Hilton Honors points at US$0.50 (~$0.70) each, so I value the 2,000 points at US$10 (~$14).
Making the Donation
To make the donation, follow this link and click on “fund a ride” at the bottom of the page.
You’ll then have to verify your identity.
You will then be prompted to make a donation using the credit card linked to your Lyft account.
You could get Delta miles too!
Hilton is not the only Lyft partner pushing this initiative, Delta Airlines too has a partnership with Lyft, and they are awarding 250 bonus SkyMiles to the first 15,000 Delta and Lyft linked SkyMiles members who contribute a minimum of $5 as well. You should be able to get both 2,000 Hilton points and 250 SkyMiles as a result of your donation, since rewards have stacked historically. I’ve gotten my Hilton points and SkyMiles for my Lyft rides when I’m in the US.
Everyone should have the choice in making a decision on whether to take the vaccine, and for those who are choosing to be vaccinated, let’s chip in to help them!
