Okay, just as I went into the garden I received a pre-select offer for the Citi HH Visa Signature. Basically the only other personal card I want is a visa signature. But I'm in the gardent until October-Nov.
Anyway, I'm hoping that they will send me another offer in the fall. But if anyone already has this card can you tell me if the rewards are worth it.
The offer I received says, I'll get 3 HHonors Bonus points per dollar spent on grocery, drugstore and gas - and 2 HHonors points per dollar spent on everything else.
My question is are the bonus point only eligible for hotel stays or would I be able to purchase gift cards, or even apply bonus points to my bill? Thanks for any help I can receive on this.

Hi, I have had this card for awhile (I am a Hilton guy) the continuing Gold Honors status is the ONLY plus to this card, and since I "live" in Hilton's for work it is a great card for me. That being said the point tier is HORRIBLE, I had the Amex Surpass which if you are looking for points is the BEST card with Hilton Honors (you are only Gold for a year and then roll back to silver). Since you are looking at Visa Signatures stay away, unless you are a Hilton person... Good luck with finding one you like, there are many "signatures" out there!!

Thanks everyone, I'm not going to be applying for anything right now. Just wanted to check on this since I know that the next card I apply for will be a visa sig. I'm am glad I asked about this one though. I travel a lot, but since I'm self employed I don't stay at the Hilton for work, more like the Holiday Inn. I stay at the Hilton for conferences or vacation, so I don't think I'll rack up enough points to make this one work for me. You all are wonderful! :-)
