“Quarterly” Hilton Promotion

hilton

Yesterday, I discussed the quarterly promotions from Marriott and Starwood. Today we’re moving on to Hilton, whose promotion runs January 1 — April 30, 2018. Points Unlimited At least it has a cool name. Hilton has dumped its usual double points promotion in favor of one that’s simply not very good. You’ll earn 2,000 points …

Hilton’s Double Points Bonus

hilton

Hilton is not my primary program, but it does have its advantages. For example, I like the double dip* opportunities and the wide range of price points that its properties offer. 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 …

go more get more

Sometimes, simple is best. After a year of double points promotions, Hilton rolled out one last quarter that gave you an extra 2,000 points per night. It sounds good, but you get nothing extra for higher-priced hotels (Of course, you ended up with more bonus points under this promotion for cheaper hotels.). Go More Get …

Hilton Tells Us Just How Little Their Points Are Worth

hilton honors

As I mentioned yesterday, loyalty programs love to sell points. Usually, they sell the points to merchants, who pass them on to you as rewards for purchases, but occasionally, they’ll sell to you directly. But there’s a problem, of course. Not for the company. For you, the consumer. Bottom Line: If they’re selling, you don’t …

Today, we’ve got Hilton cards offering up to 100,000 points.* I’m not sure we’re quite ready yet for your first million point card, but who am I to rule it out? Just …

Environmental Sins And Mobile Madness…

Citi Violates The Environment… Okay, look, I try to remain apolitical in this blog, but seriously, Citi, exactly how much cardboard do you need to hold a credit card? My new Citi AA Executive Card came yesterday and, to say the least, it was over-packaged. Keep in mind that we’re talking about a credit card. …
