Hilton HHonors quietly discontinued AXON awards that are available for certain Hilton affiliated Amex card holders effective December 31, 2016.
Members understandably weren’t happy with this change without any advance notice and Hilton HHonors decided to continue offering these awards until February 15, 2017.
You can access Hilton HHonors here.
Here’s the AXON award prices:
- Category 5: 130,000 points
- Category 6: 160,000 points
- Category 7: 190,000 points
- Category 8: 220,000 points
- Category 9: 260,000 points
- Category 10: 300,000 points
AXON awards are offered at a fixed points that depends of the hotel category. These awards are for four night stay.
Here’s message that I received from Hilton spokesperson:
We normally like to give our members advanced notice on any type of program update, and we’re sorry that this change was not communicated beforehand. To apologize to our members, those who still wish to use AXON Awards can make these bookings starting Friday, Jan 20th through Feb 15th.
It is never wise to change awards without giving any advance notice to program members. Good that Hilton HHonors got this and decided to extend the deadline of redeeming these until February 15, 2017.
