    Greetings!

    I am considering future booking of 5-night award at Hilton Bentley and have a question - would really appreciate your help here.

    -I have 2 free-night certificates from HHonors Visa Reserve card
    -One night at Hilton Bentley currently priced at 60000 points
    -If you book 5 nights at any Hilton hotel - you receive 5th night free.

    My question is the following: what is the remaining portion of points I need to use after I apply my 2 certificates:

    Will it be 60,000*4 - 2*60,000=120,000 or will it be 60,000*4 - 2*(60,000*4/5)=144,000 ? In other words, what would be the point value assigned to the certificates while booking a 5-night award?

    Thanks in advance.

    You would owe 180k. The certificates and points don't combine.

    Why 180K? If certificates and points don't combine... 4 night at 60.000 points are 240K or I'm wrong

    They mean that rooms on certificates don't count toward the B4G1 deal, which requires paying for 4 nights WITH POINTS to get the 5th night free! If he uses certificates for 2 nights, he would have to pay the point price of 3x 60K for the other 3 nights.
    But if he wanted to stay 7 nights total, he could do a B4G1 for 240K + use cert.s for the 6th & 7th nights.
