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…

Hilton’s sleight of hand: watch your cancellation deadline

Stephen recently wrote about Marriott’s Sleight of Hand in how they presented their new award chart changes (See: Marriott’s Sleight of Hand: Category Changes Worse Than Advertised). Hilton recently nearly pulled a fast one on one of my reservations (in a completely different way) before swooping in with what they presented as a customer service win. In the end, I learned a lesson: monitor the cancellation deadline on your reservations. A hot deal, booked far in…

Is Hilton considering new elite benefits?

Hilton is without a doubt the easiest hotel chain with which to snag elite status: simply holding the right credit card will get you either Gold or Diamond status, the top two tiers in its loyalty program. That’s pretty awesome if you want to get the benefits of loyalty without….y’know, being loyal. But the fact that status is so easy to get leads some to say, “If everyone is a Diamond member, no one is a…

Match status through March 2020 at Hilton

Earlier this year, the easiest path to top-tier status in the loyalty program world was blazed with the launch of the Hilton Aspire card. However, if you don’t want an Ultra Premium Hotel credit card, Hilton is giving you a fresh new option: a status match to Gold or Diamond status with a path to retain that status through March 2020. All you need is status in another program and 1 stay in the past 12 months…

100K Hilton Ascend offer despite past Hilton Surpass

When Amex announced that their Hilton Surpass card would be renamed to “Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express”, I speculated that it might be possible to get a new welcome bonus on the Ascend as long as you closed your Surpass card before the transition.  Amex representatives, though, unanimously rejected the idea.  The company line was that the Ascend was not a new product.  Therefore, current and past Surpass cardholders would not be eligible…
