But one thing that often gets overlooked is the company’s bonus opportunities. Double Points. Again. Most major hotel companies offer a promotion every four …

Hilton “Enhances” Redemptions; Be Prepared for A Devaluation

hilton honors

Hotel loyalty programs are good at many things, but the one thing that they are best at is disguising stealth devaluations as a benefit, which they will usually call “an enhancement.” The last thing that you want is for your program to get enhanced.
