    Read this at LoyaltyLobby.

    Really great promotion if you have a couple of "cheap" hilton stays.

    In the past I've done these to transfer to Hilton HHonors since there used to be a 1:2 ratio. Since February though the ratio has dropped to 1:1.5. So 6,000 miles would transfer to 9,000 Hilton Points. Worth, what, $36?

    On a recent $171/nt stay as a Diamond I earned 3,565 points. So this is about double the number of points you'd normally earn.

    I guess the alternative is to earn about 171 United Miles or whatever, worth maybe $3.42.

    Seems like a good deal to me. :)

    Oh, except I didn't realize this expired at the end of April. Given that I'd suggest first maxing out your Hyatt bonus, then your SPG bonus and only then if you have nights left, taking advantage of this at Hilton. In general. YMMV.

    Got my 1st 1,500 bonus Miles for a two night Hampton Stay.
    Bundled with the Weekend Bonus, this 2 simple nights has been rewarding!
