Earlier this year, both ride-sharing services Lyft and Uber announced rewards programs for loyal users. Lyft has now taken this concept a step further.
The carpool service announced a partnership with hotel brand Hilton, offering riders points towards the Hilton Honors Rewards program with each ride. As of May 14, the money you spend getting around town can double as a down payment on your next hotel stay with participating Hilton brands. Every dollar you spend counts, up to $10,000 in a calendar year.
Riders can earn three points for every dollar spent on private Lyft rides and two points per dollar spent on shared Lyft rides. Points can be redeemed through the Hilton Honors program for hotel stays, as well as concert tickets or dining and shopping excursions.
To get started, link your Lyft and Hilton Honors accounts via the brands’ new dedicated rewards website. The icing on the cake is that you don’t have to be a current Hilton Honors member — aspiring travel optimizers can apply to join the program and begin accruing points on their next Lyft ride.
