Hilton HHonors points giveaway
I looked through the various airline and hotel programs, looking for the rules on transferring miles and points. I knew that most programs charged to transfer (though there are some exceptions for transferring for people living at the same address), and I was willing to pay for it, but some of the prices they wanted to charge were ludicrous. In the end, I decided to go with Hilton HHonors points. You can transfer points to another Hilton member in increments of 5000 points for a $12.50 fee per 5000 points transferred. A Hilton point might not be as valuable as some other points, but 10,000 Hilton HHonors points will get you 2 nights at any Hilton Category 1 hotel.
Granted, there aren’t a TON of Category 1 Hiltons (unless you’re going to Egypt!) but you could also use the points for a night at a Hilton Category 2 hotel. I stayed 2 nights at the Hampton Inn in LaGrange, Georgia (a Category 2 hotel – here’s my review) and it was a very nice hotel. Or you could just use the 10,000 points towards a more expensive redemption (we are trying to stay at the Category 7 Morrison hotel in Dublin on our upcoming trip to Europe)
If you’re looking to get more Hilton points, you might also be interested in the limited time offer for a 75,000 point signup bonus for the Citi Hilton HHonors card.
The fine print:
- Winner will be randomly chosen from available and valid entries
- You must be 18 or older to win
- You must already have a Hilton HHonors account in good standing, and you will need to provide me with your number (so I can transfer the points)
- I will transfer 10,000 Hilton HHonors points to your account, as well as pay the fee to transfer them over
- If for some reason Hilton puts the kibosh on this, or in any other way I’m unable to transfer the points, at my sole discretion, I reserve the right to instead award the winner a $50 Hilton gift card
- What you do with the points is up to you 😛
- Contest ends at 11:59 pm Eastern time on August 12th
- This contest is not sponsored by, affiliated with, or endorsed by Hilton. Just my points, transferred to you.
