    Since I made "Diamond" much earlier this year, and have made top level in SPG....I thought this is a great promo and it has me staying back at Hilton as often as I can in November/December. Its a great example of a promo that will actually cause me to make additional stays!

    This is a targeted offer which I may get since after I check out of Hilton Singapore on 11/23, I will have enough base points (120K+) to requalify for HH Diamond after just 12 stays. With an extended reward stay at W=A Shanghai during the period of this offer that should earn me substantial base points on incidentals, I should be excited if I were to be targeted for this offer. However, it will be meaningless for my style of qualifying because of what the Points Guy says here:
    With my pattern of stays, I would have a hard time making HH Diamond on stays, whereas I make it easily on base points. As noted above, I will requalify for HH Diamond at the end of this week with just 12 stays, but 120+ K base points.

    No base points, not for me...

    Yes--this promotion is absolutely one that benefits those of us who re-qual for HHonors status based on stays. I was surprised when I received the offer, but happily signed up. Doing so should yield about five stays before the end of the calendar 2013 that will count for 2015 re-qual. Brilliant.

    I was diamond on points (March 2013) and Nights (May 2013) and still haven't hit it for stays. Interestingly, I have a few "one nighters" booked before the end of the year, so maybe JumpStart will make a difference.

    I think it will definitely offer some interesting calendar 2014 leverage possibilities for some folks. My goal for 2013 was to re-qual HH Gold and hit SPG Platinum. Because of prices and travel patterns, I instead hit HH Diamond and just crawled over the line for SPG Gold*, even though 2013 was a pretty heavy travel year. This offer will let me put SPG Platinum in my cross-hairs again for 2014 (although given the price differences that I usually see between geographically comparable SPG and Hilton properties, I'm far more skeptical than I was last year at this time).

    *And that's with the qualification boost provided by the SPG AMEX.
