Any idea when HHonors will advise about their Q4 2012 Promotion?

    I could plan a stay for 10/2/12 at a Hilton property but I'm waiting to find out what or if they plan a Q4 promotion. I can stay at a very nice BW overseas for 1/2 the cost of the Hilton so I would love to know if anyone has some advance knowledge of what form this may take.

    Thanks,

    NJ

    The promos for Q2 and Q3 were both announced around 22-25th, so you may be waiting another 10 days to find out.

    May be book both hotels now to lock in the rates, and then cancel whichever you don't want to use after the promo is announced?

    If I had to guess what it would be, considering that Q1-Q3 promos were about earning points, Q4 promo will be about redeeming the points economically, e.g., get 1/3 points back on any reward stay... (that one was offered last year and it would be my pick because I am about to redeem 0.5M HH points in Asia for Dec '12 - Jan '13. One-third of 0.5M is a big number ;)).

    Last year's Q4 promotion wasn't a burn promotion, though. I'm hoping for earn promotions I can use.

    I'd be happy about that as I am about to burn 150,000 points. Not quite as much as you, but if I saved 1/3, it would still be much more than I'd EARN with any other conceivable promo in that quarter.

    If you are staying for only one day, I doubt that any promotion would be better than half the cost at the BW.

    ... and if you are considering a BW over a Hilton ... maybe best to stay at the BW :D ;)

    I know for sure that there was a promo along the lines that I'd stated, ending on Jan 31, 2012, which allowed me to get 1/3 of the nearly 500K HH points that I also used to redeem last year. In fact, I am not even sure what the Q4 promo was last year if the 1/3 back was not it.

    I am mostly redeeming in Q4/Q1 2013 so that I am not likely to get much out of a promo that offers HH points...

    Just as I thought; that one would do me no good since I will have 2 paid stays for 8 days combined in Q4, so not enough for a free night certificate. The 1/3 back, in addition, would be great!

    Now that I think about it, I want a great burn promotion.

    I could use a nice burn thread, though I still may be in that all to familiar "hoarding" mode and want to earn more......when the wife saw a picture of bora bora, I knew I was in trouble!

    The burn promotion was for premium room and points and cash room only, you have to book before jan 31 last year and stay by june. I got lucky and had already booked a premium room(for less than standard room) at hilton waikoloa village for 7 nights in may, i got back like 75k points from that promotion.
