Hilton program changes: a net win

This morning, Greg wrote a post about whether or not you should cancel your Hilton card ahead of the big changes coming to the credit card lineup (See: Should you cancel your Hilton card before January 18th?). The credit cards aren’t the only big change coming for Hilton Honors — Hilton has announced some changes to the Hilton Honors loyalty program. When programs announce changes, they almost always present poor value. In this case, Hilton has…

Hilton adds elite breakfast at Waldorf-Astoria hotels

Yesterday, Greg published his predictions for 2018 (See: Frequent Miler’s 2018 miles & points predictions). One of his predictions was that Marriott would offer breakfast for Gold & Platinum elites at resorts, which have historically been excluded from the elite free breakfast benefit. Another chain which has historically limited its elite breakfast benefit is Hilton — though as of yesterday, Hilton has expanded that benefit: Hilton Gold & Diamond elite members will now receive free continental breakfast (or…

As reported last night by Dan’s Deals, The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island currently has Water Villas available for standard award redemptions for just 95,000 points per night.

Hilton free night certs

Earlier this week, American Express began to offer a 33% bonus when transferring Membership Rewards points to Hilton Honors.

[Expired] Surprise: No email, still targeted for 10K per AU

Over the past couple of days, many blogs have covered the recent bonus for adding authorized users to Amex Hilton Honors and Surpass credit cards. Since I hadn’t received an email, I assumed I hadn’t been targeted. I was wrong. Despite not having been targeted for any of the SPG spending offers over the past year, I finally clicked the link in the post at One Mile at a Time about the Hilton AU bonus…

Hilton stinks at math: book award nights separately

I noticed a curious thing this week when I was looking up some award nights: Hilton’s computers aren’t always pricing awards correctly when you look at multiple nights — and it’s not good. When looking at Hilton award availability, it might be necessary to look up (and maybe book) each night individually to get the correct price in terms of Hilton Honors points. This makes award booking more time-consuming and less transparent. Example case: a 2-night…
