Went to the website do do my monthly GP to HHonors transfer, couldnt find my registered account , went to news and there it was, "effective April 30th no more transfers to Hilton" well I guess it was good while it lasted.
Anyway, we knew they wanted to terminate Reward Exchange a long time ago, but Hilton blocked it. I guess the previous deal expired and they were finally able to stop bleeding money. Another possibilty is that Hilton pulled the plug for the same reason they terminated United. Let's hope it was GP and not Hilton because the latter would be a worse indication of GP's financial situation. I do give GP some credit for staying afloat this long.
Programs: HHonors Gold since '02, Hertz President's Circle since '07

That'd be my hunch, as there is nothing on the HHonors website about it, so it seems to have been initiated without warning by GP, while UA was the opposite, appearing on the HH site with AA in the dark.
Programs: United 1K, AA Gold, SPG Gold, HHonors Gold, Hyatt Platinum, Marriott Gold
Got a call this morning from LatinPass and they apologized for havingno advance notice. Still, all in all it's been a wonderful deal. I plan on using my last 240K miles for a couple of trips to South America.
