    Thanks for reminding me.

    I was offered and accepted the same thing a few months ago when checking on my own reservation.

    I just relaized that those points never did post. Did yours?

    I only got this offer two days ago. but I decided to call Hilton and check on it today.

    The rep on the phone just added the points when I told her about it.

    You got lucky, mine still haven't posted and I got the offer on April 17th. Just got off the phone and the CR I got said no, I had to wait 8 weeks. Naturally, I'll call back in a little bit...

    that's odd - Hilton is usually so good about points. let me know what happens on your next call.

    Oh yeah, I listened to that guy for fifteen minutes, and I just realized I still haven't gotten my points yet. Must have been 2 months ago. Time for Hilton to get a call.

    At 1/2 cent a point, that's $2.50, maybe worth one call, but having to follow makes it a no-go in my book.

    $2.50 for 15 minutes is a pretty low valuation of my time. I'll take a pass as well.

    That's probably the mindset that they are counting on.
    500 points is enough incentive to listen for a few minutes but not enough to follow up on when they don't post. :rolleyes:

    Is there a Hilton rep on Milepoint? I have found Hilton to be pretty good about posting points, or at least responsive when you point out that points haven't been posted. (how many times can you say "point" in one post?)
