Interesting -- but if you have a AAA card, know how to get good discounts at Hiltons don't use the $25 coupons and can't stand travel agencies, where is the value in this?

I get spending $299 for something worth at best $225 using the 1 cent per point rule for the 2500 points they give you.

Now if it came with elite status, that's a different story.

The second one seems a better deal, if you use both certs, the full $40 in-flight wifi reimbursement and the delta miles it's $449 for essentially $440 worth of stuff, plus the other hard-to-valuate items (travel and VIP concierge, tech support, roadside).

Odd that this is with Hilton, since Delta is tight with Starwood...

Just because it is a no for you doesn't mean it is a no for everyone.

No so odd when you consider the glue which holds all three together is Amex.

I am mostly interested in the 5% off domestic flights. Seems like NO ONE can offer discounted domestic flights anymore...5% over a yr, for someone who travels a lot, is a lot of of $$$$

That's what I saw too...how would that work? Where am I getting my 5% back to?

Seems like it could be a BS benefit.

The rest of this is garbage...It's like trading a $20 bill for 3 $5s

Love your trade $20 bill for 3 $5 bills. LOL

IF someone REALLY got 5% back, in cash, it would be a great deal then. Provided they didn't charge Travel Agent Service Fees.

I called these guys - they claim you fill out a rebate form and get 5% back. She didn't know what fees they charged though.

Maybe OP has some input

Tickets must be booked through XXX Agency. I called them to find out service fees and of course no one answers their phone. Goes to VM even though it's 4:45pm on a Monday and I googled them and could not find a website...seems fishy

SHOCKED that Hilton would work with a company like this. Was told to call 1-800-716-4809 from Hilton Select.

Call that number and you're sold a cruise...inquire about anything but that and the number hangs up on you. Again, awesome.
