    Yep... seems to be an addition to the existing promo.

    You go to the facebook page and "like" it, then you book during the bonus event period (no doubt existing reservations don't count).

    Then you go back to the facebook page and enter the reservation info and HHonors number. Any stay before September 5th earns 2,500 bonus points.

    Seems rather convoluted, but undoubtedly it's someone's idea of using analytics to gauge interest. You have to like their page (which automatically serves as advertisement in your wall) and you have to go back and enter your reservation info to get the bonus points.

    Not to mention it means booking within the next 48 hours and staying before 9/5/2011.

    On top of all of the downside info posted above, I was unable to find anything in Hawaii for the Sept time frame. The offer is great if you are staying in the CUS.

    I got some pretty decent "Great Getaway" rates in Europe, but of course now I regret booking them last week.

    Then again, that saves me the hassle of creating a dummy FB account to "like" them. Not going to use my real one for such marketing activities.

    I had problems finding stuff in August myself, and they are certainly milking the "up to" in that "up to 40%" off... most of the nicer properties I've seen are in the 15-20% range.

    I booked a stay this morning just before the start of the promo. I checked back after seeing this post, and it is the same rate. I entered my reservation number to try to get the bonus points. Will report back 4-6 weeks after my July stay. Just slightly too late for my results to be useful to anyone else on this two day sale :)

    Is this 2500 points valid only for Great Getaway rates? These rates are not valid on all kinds of rooms. In many cases they are not even the cheapest!

    If you unselect the promo the rates shoot up actually... or at least from what I've seen. And I agree some properties don't participate and even within the same property some rooms don't show up when you look under this promo code, but that's par for the course.
