    When I called to cancel my Citi HHonors card, I was offered a retention incentive of 2 extra points per dollar spent at Hiltons for the next three months. This makes the card have 8pt/dollar rather than 6.

    I only spent ~$100 above the minimum spend to get the sign up bonus and I've had the card for 6-7 months. Clearly, I'm not a high-value customer, so I bet others could get this offer pretty easily too.

    I've only been offered
    I've only been offered retentions on Citi Aadvantage cards.

    My spend is always just a little over the minimum.

    Their retention offers for me have always been in the range of 1,000-2,500 miles.

    Amex Surpass is 9 points per dollar spent at Hiltons, and that is their standard value proposition. So unless you do not have this card, this retention offer may not be all that valuable.

    Cheers,

    What you have to realize is Hilton points are worth about a half cent a piece-- but they're easier to redeem than those for some airlines and even more important stays on points count towards elite status.
