Hilton Honors and Lyft are pleased to introduce new features of their exclusive partnership. Besides letting Hilton Honors members earn Hilton Honors points on every Lyft ride they take in the United States and select Canadian cities after members have linked their accounts, Hilton Honors members can now use their points to redeem for Lyft credits.

This is fantastic news for those who frequently take Lyft to get to places as well as those who do aren't exactly active when it comes making sure they are clocking in some form of eligible activity. In the latter case, instead of risking their Hilton Honors points expiring without eligible activity in a 12-month period, exchanging them for Lyft credits can be practical and rewarding at the same time.

How do you go about redeeming your Hilton Honors points for Lyft credits? Head over to HiltonHonorsLyft.com, log in then select a fixed amount of points you would like to redeem in exchange for Lyft credits. The Lyft credits are available in increments ranging from $10 to $100.

For those who are wondering, Hilton Honors members who have linked their Hilton Honors and Lyft accounts can stand to earn 3 points for every $1 spent on Economy, Luxury and Extra Seats Lyft rides; and 2 points for every $1 spent on shared Lyft rides.

As mentioned, Hilton Honors and Lyft have added several features for their customers to enjoy. The new redemption feature is just one of them. The next update to know about is that the share with friends and family feature allows Hilton Honors members to redeem their points for Lyft credits and gift cards for their friends and family this holiday season.

Lastly, to offer customers a more seamless experience, the Hilton Honors app has been enhanced to let members request Lyft rides during their hotel stay. Their hotel's location will be automatically populated as the pickup location. The Hilton Honors app already gives guests control over their travel experience via features like room selection and digital key.
