Readers are reporting a targeted promotion being sent out by Hilton the past few days, with their new partnership with American Airlines.
We’re teaming up with Hilton HHonors to reward your frequent travel. Sign up, and you’ll be immediately rewarded with Hilton HHonors Diamond status. With Diamond status, you can enjoy complimentary space-available room upgrades, in-room and lobby Wi-Fi, and a 50% bonus on all HHonors Base Points, which helps you earn your free stays even faster. Plus, earn 25,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles when you complete three stays by December 31, 2014. Register today. There’s no time like the present for your Hilton HHonors and AAdvantage memberships to benefit you.
This is an extremely lucrative offer, but unfortunately, it appears to be targeted. I was not targeted for this promotion, but I do have Hilton Gold status thanks to my American Express Platinum Card.
By finding a Hilton property for cheap – let’s say under $100 a night – you’re earning 25,000 AAdvantage points, which, if used for a round-trip economy class ticket, could be worth well over $300, depending on the routing and timing.
I was really hoping that American and Hyatt would partner up, but considering the size of Hyatt’s chain and Hilton’s, in only makes more sense for them to partner with Hilton because of the vast amount of hotels they have.
Were you targeted for this offer?
Here’s the fine print: Offer is valid for the recipient of this email only and is non-transferable. Members who register for the HHonors Promotion by December 31, 2014 will obtain instant HHonors Diamond status until March 31, 2016. Complete three qualifying stays between September 26, 2014 and December 31, 2014 to earn 25,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles. Check-out of your third stay must be on or before December 31, 2014. To earn the AAdvantage bonus miles, members must set their ‘My Way™’ Earning Style Option to ‘Points & Miles™’ in the Preferences section of their HHonors profile and select American Airlines as their preferred Airline Partner prior to completing the qualifying stays. A ‘stay’ is defined as the total number of consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, whether or not a guest checks out and checks back in again. You must provide your HHonors account number at the time of booking. Please allow six to eight weeks from completion of your stay for miles to appear in your AAdvantage account. Offer is not valid for groups and cannot be combined with other select offers. Standard requirements must be met to maintain HHonors Gold status after its expiration under this offer. ** Honors Diamond status benefits are subject to availability and vary by hotel. High-speed Internet access is not complimentary at properties with a resort charge. Hilton HHonors Points required for a reward night vary based on the category of hotel and whether the reward night is redeemed at a location during a peak or off-peak period. Other restrictions apply. For more information on Diamond status benefits, redemption of points for free nights, and program Terms and Conditions, please visit HHonors.com/terms.
