There are a couple of new Amex Offers out today for Hampton by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn good for either 4,000 Membership Rewards points or $40 back (depending on your offer) when you spend $175 or more.

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 new Price Match guarantee & stacking with a 4th night free

Stephen reported a few days ago that Hilton changed the terms of its Best Rate Guarantee program. When I saw the new terms, I was instantly excited. A couple of months ago, I wrote about stacking a best rate guarantee with the Citi Prestige 4th night free. When I saw the new terms, I thought that it would make for some really awesome opportunities to stack savings since you could get a claim pre-approved, making…

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…
