Up in the Air stakes entry - Hilton only?

I just got the email from HH about the sweepstakes for "Up in the Air" - a movie that many of us are likley to relate to. While I know the odds of getting anything from it are slim I'm curious - does anyone know if Hilton family stays get entries or just stays at mainline Hiltons? It looks like just mainline but was curious as the material doesn't really come out and say it.

I wondered the same thing. However, using the booking area of the promo page, only Hilton hotels came up for the area searched. There are lots Hilton family hotels there but they were not listed. SO based on that, I assumed it was Hilton only.

Andrea, can you clarify?

Yes, the sweepstakes is for Hilton hotels only. Check out the trailer, the movie looks good, especially for you frequent travelers.

Take care,

Would using the visa signature deal link negate the entry?

No, you can book any package, promotion, or offer, as long as it’s done through hilton.com. By booking you will get an entry into both the Grand Prize drawing and prize-of-the-week drawing.

Good luck,

Yeah, but what the heck. I just cancelled and rebooked a room for this weekend in order to be eligible for week 1. I'll let you know if I win...

Unfortunately another promotion ignoring European HHonors members, who might even be spending more in average as a US-based colleague.

I find it apalling that this was limited to US bookings, I hope you change your mind in 1 week...

By the time the winner receives 1 million HH points, they'll only be worth around 700,000 points.

Did you notice how Hilton is not publicizing the devaluation on their web site, emails etc?

Pretty low key.

Not least since there aren't any "enhancements".

How do you register without booking a room?

I do not see how you can register for this promotion without booking a room. Can someone please explain how to register on-line for this or is this going to be one of those cases where you have to mail in a 3 X 5 card to register for the promo If you are not booking.

No on line registration. You must use snail mail.

From the web link in post #1 look at the lower right-hand corner. There's a link reading "Click Here For Rules". It brings up a pop-up. The first paragraph reads:
TO ENTER: There are two (2) ways to enter: 1) Book any stay at a Hilton hotel on www.Hilton.com (the "Website") any time during the Promotion Period and you will receive one entry into the Sweepstakes (a "Book Entry"), 2) You may enter without a stay by sending your hand-printed name, address and phone number on 3” x 5” paper to Hilton “Up In The Air” Sweepstakes Alternate Entry, P.O. Box 8600, Westport, CT 06888 (a "Mail-In Entry"). All Mail-in Entries must be postmarked by 01/11/10 and received by 01/18/10. Limit one (1) entry per person/e-mail address during each week of the Promotion Period regardless of the method of entry, for a total of ten (10) entries per person/email address during the Promotion Period, regardless of the method of entry. For purposes of this Sweepstakes and these Official Rules, the term “week” is understood to mean Tuesday – Monday. Multiple entries will be disqualified.

This gets brought up over and over and over (often in the whiniest possible tone). I believe there are LEGAL reasons why these kinds of sweepstakes are limited in this manner. I.e., Hilton's legal department has to make sure they comply with the laws of each country (& jurisdictions within each country, such as the states of the U.S.) regarding contests/sweepstakes.

I'm sure it isn't just a matter of Hilton sort of casually "changing its mind" and saying, "Hey, wait a minute! Let's just include another ~199 countries in the mix! No problem!!!

I never understand why people get so offended and upset over these types of things, as if they are being "left out" and personally slighted.

And I'm sure someone's post is going to rant about how they are going to immediately cancel all their bookings, burn their HHonors points, and stomp off to another program just to get "revenge."

On the contrary, I received an e-mail on October 21, announcing the change in award levels. (I am subscribed to the HHonors Special Offers and Announcements e-mail list. Perhaps you aren't?)

Also, they DO have the change in reward levels on their website, under Rewards -> Hotels -> One Free Night.
