Success: stacking 4th night free for 50% off

Later this year, the Citi Prestige 4th night free will essentially become dead to me. That’s because starting in September, you will no longer be able to make bookings through the Prestige Concierge but will rather have to book through ThankYou.com (or via the ThankYou portal’s phone number). This is a huge change as it will eliminate opportunities like an experiment I tried last year that I can finally confirm worked automatically — a stack of…

Hilton devaluation? 120K “standard” rooms at new Maldives property

Has Hilton devalued its nonexistent award chart? If the new Waldorf-Astoria property opening this year in the Maldives is an indication, it might. “Standard” rooms at this property are now available for booking — for 120,000 Hilton points per night. While that’s exciting on the one hand in the sense that it’s a great value compared to paid rates (and considering how often you can buy Hilton points cheaply), on the other hand it’s a huge increase…

Transfer bonus to Hilton from Membership Rewards [Targeted / YMMV]

American Express Membership Rewards is offering a targeted (and variable) transfer bonus to Hilton Honors. In the Frequent Miler family, we’ve seen 10%-30% bonuses. YMMV as to whether or not you are targeted / find value in this one, though I think most should probably pass on this one (see more below). The Deal Amex Membership Rewards is offering targeted transfer bonuses of anywhere from 10%-30% when transferring to Hilton Honors. The usually ratio is 1,000 Membership…

(EXPIRED) Buy Hilton points for half a cent each through 2/26/18

Hilton Honors is once again offering a “100% bonus” when you purchase Hilton Honors points. That works out to a price of .5 cents each. In yesterday’s post (See: Does it ever make sense to spend on a Hilton card?), I noted that it doesn’t make much sense to use Hilton credit cards on unbonused spend since you could use a cash back card and then use the cash back to buy Hilton points in a…

Hilton Honors Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus

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. That’s not a bad offer if you’re looking to load up on some Hilton points. Note that this may be targeted, but we have received it on the no-fee, Ascend, and Aspire cards. The Deal Earn an extra 10x at Amazon (in addition to…
