    Just received an email from HHonors for 2,500 bonus points for making a weekend booking. It specifically requires the bookings to be made during a specified 24 hr period. Also note that there is a max of 10k points from this promo and also requires you to go back into Facebook to submit your confirmation # from your completed stay to obtain the bonus. Although the rate is discounted, it also seems that the reservations is a non-refundable one as well.

    However, it seems like a nice little bonus if you were already going to make a weekend booking. In addition, there may be an opportunity to stack this on top of the other HHonors bonuses that are out there during the 1st quarter. Here's the language in the email:

    RSVP on Facebook now so you won't miss the Any Weekend, Anywhere Sale 24-Hour Bonus Event starting January 17, 2012, at 12pm ET. You can earn 2,500 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points and save up to 33% for stays during any weekend through 2012.* Simply book your Any Weekend, Anywhere Sale stay during the 24-Hour Bonus Event for any weekend night at any participating hotel or resort to get both the points and the savings. But hurry. This 24-Hour Bonus Event won't last, so mark your calendar and plan your weekend getaway today.

    *You must be an HHonors member to participate. Bonus Offer of 2,500 Bonus Points are only valid for qualified bookings between January 17, 2012, 12:00 PM EST and January 18, 2012, 11:59 AM EST for stays any weekend night between January 9, 2012, and December 30, 2012. After completing a qualified booking and receiving a Hilton confirmation number, return to the Hilton HHonors Facebook "24-Hour Bonus Event" tab and submit the requested information. Stay must subsequently be completed in order to receive the 2,500 Bonus Points. There is a maximum of 10,000 Bonus Points per HHonors member for this offer. Please allow 4-6 weeks from completion of your stay for Points to appear in your HHonors account. Rooms subject to availability. View full terms and conditions. Full non-refundable prepayment required at time of booking. Must book at least seven (7) days in advance of arrival. Some exceptions apply. Discounts vary and range from 20%-33% off Best Available Rates and, at certain properties in Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, to Bed & Breakfast Rate. Blackout dates may apply. Additional terms and restrictions apply.
    Hilton HHonors™ membership, earning of Points & Miles™ and redemption of points are subject to HHonors Terms and Conditions.

    I got that same email. Didn't even notice the "rsvp on facebook". Clever kids and their social media.

    To bad HHonors and several other 'bonus' situations require Facebook participation. Not a Facebook user here, and not gonna happen in this lifetime. Twitter perhaps, but not FB for this cowboy.
    (Sometimes I don't consider Hilton a friend) ;)

    Agree. Do not have a Facebook account either. Unfortunately see more and more promos that involves a Facebook account.

    I guess I am antisocial ;):eek:

    You should get one and just use it for promotional purposes with hotel/airline/car programs.

    I get enuf junk spam I don't care to invite it. So if it takes anti-social, so be it. Not worth a few points, IMO. Maybe we all , anti-socials should ask, 'why are we discriminated against?" Nah probably not gonna do any good. :(

    I have a facebook and twitter account under an alias. They interact with brands and get me points from them.

    Best deal so far was 1500 SPG points for liking some Sheraton. Thought the 1000 HI miles were nice too.

    I book my 10 days in Conrad Singapore in 2 reservation pages which includes 2 weekend. I don't know whether they will grant me 2500points x 2 or just normal 2500 points.

    I have a Facebook account just for these kind of promos. Do not use it otherwise and it does not contain my name. Yahoo or hotmail e-mail created just for that.
