Waiting to activate converted Hilton card? Consider applying new now.

In my recent post “Should you sign up for the new Hilton 100K offers?” I primarily counseled waiting for better offers unless you have Hilton stays planned for the near future.  But Frequent Miler senior author Nick Reyes pointed out to me an important factor that I hadn’t considered.  He has a Citi Hilton Reserve card that is being converted to the Amex Hilton Ascend.  His new Ascend card has already arrived in the mail,…

Hilton adds elite breakfast at Waldorf-Astoria hotels

Yesterday, Greg published his predictions for 2018 (See: Frequent Miler’s 2018 miles & points predictions).

I’m sure those will sell out very quickly — they will also have a special rate of $111.40 when that sells out that’s good for 24-hours only, and that’s still a great deal for a Conrad hotel.
