A LoyaltyLobby reader sent us a question about a current Hilton Honors promotion and what happens if the stay ends past its validity.
Here is an updated look at the top 5 most lucrative hotel promotions you can take advantage of this January.
Remember that it pays to take advantage of the bonus and promotional offers from hotel loyalty programs. You can supercharge your point earnings!
I often end up extending stays at hotels; my plans either change, or I like the hotel so much that I rather stay there longer.
This often creates issues with getting the correct number of nights, stays, points, and Milestone bonus points posted correctly in Hilton Honors’ case.
There are plenty of scam phone calls (see the piece earlier in the week) going around, but emails are going out as well.
A LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded us an email supposedly coming from Hilton Honors offering 20,000 points and asking you to log into your account (don’t do it!).
Hilton is about to welcome its fourth property in Seychelles once Mango House, LXR Hotels & Resorts, debuts in the summer of 2021 (already delayed).
The hotel was originally built as a private residence and consists of just 41 rooms total, including nine suites, that are now available for bookings, including using points!
Hilton has launched its first Honor points sale of 2021 at a 100% bonus that is valid for purchases made through March 5, 2021.
Members can usually buy up to 80,000 points every calendar year before the bonus, although the limit is often doubled for select members (check the purchase page).
Hilton and Dart Interest (a developer) announced this week about a humongous 10,000 room resort bordering Walt Disney World in Orlando.
The complexes would also house a 433-room Conrad Orlando hotel that is scheduled to open in 2023.
Hilton Honors launched lifetime Diamond status and made the requirements public back in 2015 (read more here).
We were told in early 2020 that the web team would be working on a counter that would display the progress for all of us, but it is not yet available a year later, and the only way to get this information is to contact Hilton.
Last month we wrote about Hilton Honors campaign allowing their Diamond members to nominate a person of their choice to either Gold or Diamond status depending on the amount of nights they spent in 2020.
Many members including myself never got the invitation email to do so until the deadline of January 31, 2021 so I decided to chase it up with Hilton and then gift the status to one of my friends.
It is the time of the year when it makes sense to check the airline and hotel loyalty programs you have status or collect points and miles to see if they are still relevant.
2020 was a blast for me in earning Hilton nights (100) and getting revenue towards the lifetime Globalist with Hyatt (70K base points).
A LoyaltyLobby reader sent us a question by email about what hotel loyalty program pursue in Southeast Asia in 2021, in addition to Accor ALL and World of Hyatt.
Hilton announced multiple policies back in October (read more here) to help Honors program members retain or reach a higher status in 2021. They already previously extended the status earned in 2019 through March 2022 (read more here).
You may wonder what nights and from what number will roll over from 2021 to 2022 now that Hilton has halved the Honors qualification requirements this year.
Here’s a comprehensive look at the Hilton Covid-19 policies & Honors bonus points and rate promotions you can use in January 2021.
Remember to forward us promotional offers by email that you receive from both hotels and airlines. You can send questions and comments too.
