Many Hilton Honors (myself included) had last weekend 5,000 bonus points posted to their account for “2019 Visa Platinum APAC – Instant Silver Honors Status – 5K Bonus First Stay Offer”.
The problem was that the bonus posted for stays outside of Asia Pacific, although mine was in Japan, Diamond members and those paying using other payment methods (I used Amex). Now, these points have as mysteriously disappeared.
You can access Hilton Honors here.
Here’s the posting as of February 3:
I did register and participate to this one Hilton Honors and Visa promotion in late 2018 in Asia Pacific (read more here) that awarded members double points.
Here’s the posting as of February 10:
This weird posting must be something to do with the issues still appearing due to Hilton Honors system update that took place at the end of October. Don’t think that it should have been too much for Hilton to honor the points that were posted rather than to remove them.
This promo was probably tied to the Visa Asia-Pacific offer at the end of 2018 that we wrote about here. There is an Amex offer for instant Hilton Honors Silver status going on (read more here) but cannot find a landing page for Visa Platinum.
