Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach: Great stack of Aspire benefits & a great hotel

Last week, I wrote a post about the great customer service I received recently at the Conrad Fort Lauderdale. It wasn’t just the service: the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach is a great hotel and makes for an excellent stack of Hilton Aspire benefits and a current Amex Offer – though hindsight being 20/20, I could have done even better than I did. Along with redeeming points for one room for five nights, my wife and…

More new Hilton spending offers: rack up easy points

Over the past week or so, Amex has been sending out some excellent targeted spending offers on all of the personal Amex Hilton cards (the no-fee Hilton Honors card, the Hilton Ascend card, and the Hilton Aspire card). Yesterday, we reported on a spending offer for Amazon. Today, a reader shared another interesting offer for 20K points after $2K spend that could be repeated twice and our own Stephen Pepper received an offer to earn a…

American Express is sending out emails to Hilton Honors credit card holders (on various versions of the card) to earn an extra 10x on purchases at Amazon.com on up to $500 in purchases by 1/29/19.

The Deal Earn an extra 10x at Amazon (in addition to…

When everyone is Diamond, is anyone Diamond?

Earlier in the year, when the Amex Hilton Aspire card began offering Hilton Diamond status to anyone willing to pony up the $450 annual fee, a reader commented to say “When everyone is Diamond, no one is Diamond.” I understood what he meant: the more people who have status, the less special/exclusive it is. I checked out of the Conrad Fort Lauderdale yesterday afternoon and I’ll say this: I don’t know whether it was my Diamond…

Hilton’s funny math: save points by extending a stay

I’m about the closest thing you’ll find to a Hilton fanboy in the blogosphere, but Hilton’s award pricing vexes and perplexes me at times. I’ve previously showed that their program is reasonably rewarding (Greg’s take was a bit different than mine) and then Greg ran the math on how Hilton’s not even a bad deal in terms of manufacturing free nights in some instances. However, I wrote a post a year ago about Hilton’s poor math skills when…

Don’t be blinded by loyalty and burn a pile of money: shop around

A couple of months ago, I put together a resource page on hotel chain Best Rate Guarantees. I recently had occasion to put one of these to use, and the savings were pretty sweet. I wish I could take credit for being smart on this one – but really, I was just lucky. I had been busy and asked a family member to do me a favor and look for my best hotel option. It turned out…

Maximize Hilton resort credit without staying every year

I’ve written quite a bit lately about hotel credit cards, specifically noting my intention to migrate away from the many flavors of Marriott. I also recently noted how interesting I find the new World of Hyatt card — but due to Hyatt’s limited footprint, I couldn’t focus on Hyatt alone. And I wouldn’t have to — because the hotel card I’m most excited about is undoubtedly the Hilton Aspire card. Last night, I booked a…
