Hat tip to Points, Miles and Martinis, but there is apparently a targeted offer for some Hilton members to get AA Platinum status.  I know that Hilton is not really enjoyed by most travelers, but for family travel, I’ve had great success with Hilton – a 2BR Homewood Suites is one of the few places that all 8 of us can fit in one room, and I also had a great stay at the Hampton Inn LaGrange for my sister’s wedding.

Plus with most of the Hiltons (at least the ones *I* stay at), you don’t get charged for breakfast and wi-fi like at the so-called “nice” hotels.

Terms and Conditions

Hilton HHonors and American Airlines are teaming up to reward your frequent travel. Sign up by October 15, 2014 and you’ll receive American Airlines AAdvantage® Platinum status through January 31, 2015, complete with special upgrade privileges, 100% mileage bonus on eligible flights, free checked bags, priority check-in and more.*

Want to keep this good thing going? Simply fly on American, US Airways or other select airlines** to earn 9,000 AAdvantage elite–qualifying miles or points between October 27, 2014 and January 31, 2015. Your AAdvantage Platinum status will be extended through February 29, 2016, and you’ll also earn 20,000 HHonors Points that you can use at more than 4,000 hotels and resorts within the Hilton Portfolio.

I would expect most people would not be eligible, but it takes 30 seconds to try – here’s the link

I was not successful – what about you?
