Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday! I just received an email from Hilton Grand Vacations where you can get a 3 night stay in Orlando or Las Vegas + 25,000 Hilton Points for $149. Part of the offer requires attending a 2 hour timeshare presentation (please see the terms and conditions before booking). I’m not sure if this matters, but I am in California, I have Hilton Diamond Elite Status, and I have an American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card. Here is the email I received from Hilton Grand Vacations:
Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday! I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 5 offers that end this month. Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you. Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind. With that said, here are 5 offers that end soon. Up first, United Airlines is offering up to a 100% bonus, depending on the number of United Airlines MileagePlus Miles you purchase. This offer expires today – July 23.
Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. One of the current card benefits of the American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card is the $20 monthly dining credit. Unfortunately I ran into an issue using this card benefit in April on 2 restaurant purchases (In N Out Burger and Panera Bread). As you can see, I never received the $20 dining credit for my April purchases, but I did receive the credit automatically in May, June, and July. Based on my transactions, the $20 dining credit posts ~3 days after the restaurant charge posts to your account. I contacted AMEX on May 1 and again on July 13 to check on the status of the dining credit and received conflicting answers. Here is what I was told and what I learned…
Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. In the last 24 hours, I have received 2 vacation package offers that I wanted to share. The first is from Hilton Grand Vacations where you can get a 3 night stay in Orlando or Las Vegas + 15,000 Hilton Points for $149. The second offer is from Wyndham Vacation Resorts for a 3 night stay in Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Branson, Smoky Mountains, Las Vegas, San Antonio, or Destin + 15,000 Wyndham Rewards Points for $199. Both of these vacation packages require attending a 2 hour timeshare presentation (please see the terms and conditions before booking). I’m not sure if this matters, but I am in California, I am Diamond Elite Status with both chains, and I have credit cards with both chains. Here is the email I received from Hilton Grand Vacations:
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Easter and Passover. A few days ago, Laura and I did a roadtrip around California and stayed at The Kinney San Luis Obispo, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. The Kinney is a few blocks from downtown San Luis Obispo (SLO) and a short drive / bike ride to the campus of Cal Poly SLO. Since the hotel is close to the university, the hotel has a college theme. Basic rooms are called Campus Rooms and the suites are called Grad Suite, Dean Suite, and Professor Suite (see all pics and room descriptions here). I used points to book a Campus Room and was upgraded (thanks to my Hilton Diamond Elite Status) to a Grad Suite. I enjoyed staying at this hotel and the location was great for exploring downtown SLO and the surrounding area. I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit SLO. Here are some pics of my room and of the hotel.
