    A couple days ago I called Hilton to make a reservation for my 2 complimentary Visa card night certificates. After I was done the agent ask me if I was willing to participate in a survey and have a change to get a discount of 75% (?) on some Hilton vacation deal? She also said that just by participating 500 HH points would be posted into my account. I am not interested in the Hilton vacation homes or whatever but did the survey and 500 points were posted within 24 hours. They show up as HGVC Tour bonus. A couple days later I called again to make a date change and was asked the same question. I agreed again but this time gave my wife's HH # and this time the 500 HGVC pints posted to her account. It took 48 hours

    The problem is 500 HH points are worth $2 at best!

    I guess its bad time management, wasting 10 minutes on the phone for 500 points. But for me personally still better than watching TV.

    Usually less, since devaluation. I've been lucky to get one-third of a cent value/savings per point on redemptions.

    true, but for point junkies, it's still free points on offer and logic may temporarily go out of the window in valuation in hearing of free points up for grabs..;)

    Yep. I have to admit that last week I was at the site to make a reservation, got the offer, and listened to the spiel for 500 points. :D

    "Every little bit helps!" Now where did I hear that before? Umm, never mind, it's probably been so very long ago that she's probably forgotten.
