Hilton Improves Best Rate Guarantee Policy, Claims Can Now Be Pre-Approved

Canopy By Hilton Washington DC The Wharf

Hilton has announced some changes to their Best Rate Guarantee (which they now call Price Match Guarantee) and at first glance, the changes appear to be improvements. Here’s a list of changes notified by HonorsRepresentative on FlyerTalk: If you find a lower qualified price for the same accommodation and terms at any point before your reservation is made, or up to 24 hours after making your reservation through one of the official Hilton booking channels, you…

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…

(EXPIRED) Buy Hilton points for 0.5c each

Hilton is offering a sale on points that won’t make sense for buying speculatively, but I’m actually buying some points this time around because I was making a reservation last night where I’ll be able to get great value for them. The Deal Buy Hilton Honors points with a 100% bonus (0.5cpp) in the following quantities: 80,000 total points (40K + 40K) = $400 160,000 total points (80K + 80K) = $800 Direct link to log in and purchase…

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…

This morning, Stephen posted a quick deal for a new Hilton offer on Hilton / Canopy / Curio Collection (See: Hilton, Curio Collection & Canopy Amex Offer: Spend $250, Get $50 / 5K Back (Targeted)).
