MyPoints and Hilton Honors: The Definitive Thread

I'm wondering if anyone has tried converting their Mypoints to HHonors points and then converting those to airline miles (Delta or others). I have more interest in free flights than hotel stays - and the 1 for 1 exchange of Mypoints to HHonors points seems to be about the best deal going. Will Hilton let you transfer points that were not originally earned within their program?

Before you do that, take a quick look at the Marriott conversion rate. I haven't looked, but you may get a better deal there: Mypoints => Marriott => Detla.

Mypoints => HHonors: 1,000 to 1,000
Mypoints => Marriott: 1,500 to 1,000

HHonors => Delta: 50,000 to 12,500 (current 25% bonus promotion, see http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/Forum57/HTML/001209.html )
Marriott => Delta: 30,000 to 10,000

50,000 Mypoints would become 12,500 Skymiles (4:1 transfer through HHonors).
45,000 Mypoints would become 10,000 Skymiles (4.5:1 transfer through Marriott).

Unless you have to top out to get a particular reward, I would take a hard look at the conversion rate from HHonors points to any miles program. I would limit conversions to "orphan" miles inbound and even then I try to catch a special on the conversion rate (e.g., 4 for 1 rather than 2 for 1, or, apparently, the current one with Delta 2.5 for 1).

Also, look at the HHonors VIP awards (e.g., two tickets and a 6-day stay at participating hotels worldwide); it's competitive, but especially when you've recaptured value from orphan miles.

Mypoints

Has anyone ever tried to post Mypoint into some else's HH program?

I did this with Clickreward, but was wondering if it would work with Mypoints.

I just redeemed 6,000 points.

It took 4 days to post.

Worked without a glitch.

jfe: Did you post it into someone else's Hilton Hhonors account or did they redeemed their Mypoints and posted it into yours?

Thanks

That is pretty unusual. I've done many transfers from mypoints and they usually take about 10 days at the most.

I agree with B747-437B. I've exchanged MyPoints for HH points on several occasions and am sure the transaction were always completed in less that 2 weeks. I would definitely follow up.

MyPoints -> daughter's HHonors account?

Can I redeem MyPoints from my account for HHonors points for my daughter? Same address, same last name.
