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…

[Ended] Huge value Hilton auction: Sold out pass to 90 festivals

This auction is only alive until 12pm Eastern time today. This is a very short-term quick deal that will only work out for one bidder, but the value for Hilton points looks great for the right person. Concert fans with big Hilton points balances (or friends with whom you can quickly pool points), Hilton Honors Auctions has a pair (that’s 2 passes) of Live Nation Festival Passport passes — which originally sold for $799 each and sold out in three minutes…

Citi Hilton Honors 50K Link

Citi Hilton Honors

As we reported yesterday, it seems that this may be a last call for Citi’s Hilton cards. With Amex set to become the sole issuer of Hilton’s credit cards in January and Citi planning to migrate existing cardholders to something else (we don’t yet know what that will be), these cards have been removed from Citi’s website. We don’t know for sure if this is permanent, but suspect it to be an indication that these…

New Hilton Honors is better for many. Maybe that wasn’t a middle finger after all…

This morning I published a report about Hilton’s new award program (see: Hilton Honors results are in. Is that Hilton’s middle finger?).  In that post I used charts (published with permission from US Credit Card Guide) to support the argument that the new program is much less likely to result in outsized value than the old program.  I was wrong. There’s a great old book titled “How to lie with statistics“.  One of the many…
