I got the Delta MQM thing - I assume everybody did. But I'm not a DL guy to begin with, so it doesn't help me.

I'm trying to figure out how to accomplish all of the relevant Starwood, Marriott, and Priority Club promos this fall...and maybe get to the Hyatt 10K one if I can. Hilton isn't even on my radar screen so far. I've gotten nothing of interest from HH in forever. Been Gold since 2000, but never Diamond...

I was on the phone with Diamond Desk about 5 mins ago booking a Q3FN award stay for next month. I asked the woman about any Q4 promotion and she started laughing and said that they are usually the LAST ones to know. She said that Hilton purposely keeps the call center out of the loop so that they don't have to answer questions prior to any announcement dates. It makes for less work I guess.

Seriously, just call Diamond Desk and ask for the 10 nights thing. They gave it to me as a friggin' Gold (although, truth be told I had already booked enough stays in the system to make Diamond and will indeed be carbon-based as of 4 October. Wahoo!)

My one bet on Q4: It'll start October 7th, just in time to shut me out for three stays in SFO next week (can't really complain, tho, before that I'll score 6 WN under Q3 after setting up a hotel hop at MCI...)

Has anyone tried to PM HamptonInnsider? Will give it a go myself if not...

Would it be that hard to have a 4th Quarter promotion start on the first day of the quarter????

This is the second time I've heard this one. I guess we'l find out in 10 days how true it is. 25k - 4 stays is a sweet deal. Why bother with double base if this is the case...

I'd be happy with 25k/double points for 4 stays as long as it counts on bookings made before the offer starts. I have a $5k booking on an advanced rate for late Oct so wouldn't be able to rebook.

Do they usually apply as long as the stay is within the quarter (if booked before)?

Cheers

Normally yes, and I hope is like this because my 1st stay(already prepaid) is for the 5th/October

I'd be happy with this if it was stackable with the Diamond Retention free night cert after every 10 nights..

Yes it is stackable with all the various Diamond retention promotions.

This is the Q4 promotion. It is NOT a guess.

Will it include stays already booked? Please paste the T&Cs or a link if you've already got one.

Thanks

Thanks.. Are they going to cap the 25k/4 stays at 75k? They did so in Q4 2009. I think I'll have 32-36 stays in Q4. That extra 200k points would be a lot better than a 75k cap.
