I will be spending a week in LAS at the Flamingo Grand Vacations. I can get one bed-room suite there either for $161.70 per night ($1131.90 for the week) at the Senior Rate or pay $195 per night ($1365) and get triple points. Whether or not the triple points offer is worth it depends on what it really means and would appreciate those of you with more experience at Hilton than I have (I am Gold only because of my Surpass card) to tell me if I have done my math right. $1131.90 generally translates to 11319 base points. As I have signed up for the double points offer for the 3rd quarter, it will earn me 22638 points. In addition, I get a 50% bonus of the 11319 points (5659 points) for choosing "points and points" as well as a 25% bonus (2829 points) for being Gold. Total points: 31,126. If I understand what "triple points" means correctly, I would pay the $1365, get three times the base points it usually gives (total: 40,950) plus twice the points for the 3rd quarter bonus (27,300), a 50% bonus for "points and points" (6825) and the 25% bonus for being Gold (3412). This would total 78,487 points. In other words, I would be getting 47,361 more points and it would cost me $233 more. In itself, that may be worth it -- what do you think? Of course, it is possible that I am missing something that would really make it worthwhile. For example, is the 3rd Quarter bonus twice the triple points I would be getting? That would certainly increase its value. Would the 50% "points + points" bonus be based on triple points the hotel is giving me? How about the 25% Gold bonus? On the other hand, if the "triple points" is merely an increae of the double points which I will be getting for the 3rd Quarter bonus, then the value of this offer drops sharply. Your thoughts, please.
