Discount gift certificates to Hilton?

Marriott has a program (via its partnership with Delta) where one can purchase gift certificates for Marriott family hotels at a 10% discount. Link.

Any way to get a similar discount on Hilton gift certificates or prepaid stays?

Thanks for any tips.

One other thought: if no similar discount is available, has anyone had any success in getting a property GM to award extra points for an extended stay?

AFAIK.....Hilton does not have a "gift card" or "gift certificate" in any form...with or without a discount.

I would be happy to hear about it if they do.

Paper Hilton Gift Certificates available in various denominations here in the UK. No discount for buying them though. They sometimes appear on Ebay often at just a few Pounds less than the face value.

cheers

Gift Certificate

Has this changed in the past few years? Does HILTON have gift certificates now (2010)?

Even more insulting then Hilton not offering a "discount" on gift cards, AMEX actually charges you shipping on top of the face value!! That is no deal!!

There are still paper gift certificates issued from the UK and redeemable UK and Ireland.
