I bet @NYCUA1K could use this...
This is a sweet deal if you happened to have stays at a Hilton property in the next 2 weeks+.
(Really) Short promo period but as it stands, I do have stays before July 6 so it works for me...
Terms are good...
That's a bet you just won! Wonderful stuff and great pre-Independence Day point boost that I will be able to take advantage of Big Time because I have 7-night stay coming up in a couple of days at Conrad HKG, which is already running 2-3 brand-specific promos in addition to HHonors' "Double Your Honors" global promo for 2x the points. In sum, a relatively long and pricey stay + multiple promos = bonanza!
Thanks for the tip!
Very nice! I have three stays already scheduled in the next week, so this came just in time!
It is much better if one has multiple stays like you do during the promo period because one gets 5K points each time...
It is even better if you
> are a Diamond
> stay near a Category 1 property
Redeem a night (-5,000 points)
Award (5,000 points)
Welcome (1,000 points)
Nett is you are paid 1,000 points per stay and gets a stay/night credit..
Wonder if this is workable.
With alternating nights, this could work up to 10 stays during the promo period.
> 10 stays
> 10 nights
> 10,000 points
Wonder if anyone is this lucky.
Doable but too much time and time is money!
Here's the official plug for the promo as it just landed in my inbox:
Thank y'all. I have a trip the first week of July, traveling cross country. So I will be looking for Hilton Garden Inns and Hamptons each night. Could get a bunch of points on a 6 day trip.
Don't know about that. Anyone want to join me in driving from South Florida to Tucson in 4 days? About 600 miles per day of windshield time. Add to that, it appears that Texas is being punished by the weather gods for something. First the May flooding followed by Tropical Storm Bill. Maybe when passing through I will get a hail storm of fire breathing toads?
If you do get that, then we had best get pics.
Hell, scratch that--video!
This is sweet timing. I have between two and three stays booked at Hilton properties between now and 30 June. Nothing slated yet in the first week of July, but that's still possibly 15000 bonus points attached to stays that were going to happen anyway.
Thanks for the tip! I like promotions that apply to plans already booked.
And then there's folks like me who Hilton wins big with. Was going to be using Marriott during this period, but plans weren't firm, so now will be shifting over. Couple that with the Amex HGI offer to bring down the cost a little.
Look for it in the "Guess the City" Thread.
(Will Ted Cruz laying across my hood work?)
My brain has been seared. You just had to put him in an American flag speedo for the shot, didn't you?
Nope. I run a map and FLAG store. I know that the Flag Code says that the US Flag should not be used for clothing. I think Michelle Bachmann would cover him nicely.
More seriously, I don't like to think of myself as a symbol-minded guy*, but I have to admit a good deal of annoyance re: flag clothing.
*hat tip to G.C.
I still have not received this in my email but I am registered...
I'm not sure where I stand on this one. I haven't seen the offer, I did not receive points for a stay on 6/16, did get points on 6/17, but not on 6/20 or 6/21 or 6/22. All in Hampton's all in different city's. But I will take the 5K every time it is posted!
will this work for hilton booked with citi thank you points? (i.e. not through hilton.com directly)
If you are not getting points for your stays, why aren't calling to demand them?
