With few exceptions, The Gate does not typically report on rumors. However, FlyerTalk members are grumbling about the rumored promotion by Hilton HHonors for the fourth quarter of 2012, reportedly to be named 1,000 Reasons — and perhaps one of those reasons for this disdain may be that the promotion may not be officially launched until November 1, 2012, meaning that it will only be valid for only two of the three months of the fourth quarter of 2012, skipping the entire month of October altogether.
Secondly, registered Hilton HHonors members will supposedly earn 1,000 bonus Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program points each Thursday through Monday of any stay occurring during the promotion period from November 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012.
In other words, no bonus Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program points will be earned on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the promotion period.
Are these rumors true? We will reportedly find out as early as October 17, 2012…
