2,500 Bonus points

2,500 bonus points on your next stay completed within 60 days of registering.

It's referred to as the "Service Center Thank You Bonus!"

Code AGNT

Some of the CSR's aren't up to speed on it yet so I would refer to it both ways. One person was told it's targeted for people that haven't stayed in awhile. Just call back I know someone who just signed up for HH this week and they got it added to their account.

That's cool. Sounds like a way for AGeNTs to "give" away points but not without getting something in return for the company.

Of course, unless something has changed, the agents are actually authorized to give points away. Any time you have any type of problem, or are just feeling particularly charming, you can always ask for a courtesy credit or "Service Center Adjustment", as it appears on your statement.

I've gotten them for up to 5,000 points, on more than one occasion.

When I called up the agent said that it was only for members who haven't had activity in their accounts recently. That being said, she talked to a supervisor and gave me the bonus anyway. She says that it will post after the next stay I have (not sure how much later).

I don't know. Do you get other points for non-paid stays? If not then I would guess you won't for this one either. If so I would like to know how you do that.

I had a similar experience (and was told similarly), except the CSR transferred me to a supervisor. Both the initial CSR and the supervisor asked me where I had gotten the code. After replying that I had received it from an aquaintance, the supervisor explained to me that this was an internal code, that my friend had probably gotten it from FlyerTalk, and that the code was making the rounds on travel bulletin boards. She was very friendly and professional.

You do get credit for nights on point stays beginning 1-01-03. You also earn points on any incidental charges on point stays.

I hate to burst their bubble but I heard about the promo on another board but the person didn't know the code so when I called in to sign up I told the CSR that I wanted to pass it on to my father and the name of the promo as well as the code was the response I received. No mention that it was an internal code or some secret promo,
Sorry Hilton!

Thank you for the post! As luck would have it, tonight will be the "next stay" for us for the 2500 pts. I called and asked told the agent I wanted to sign up for promo code AGNT. She couldn't find it, and asked where I'd gotten it from. I told her it was in a mailing, that I guess I hadn't stayed in a while. She put me on hold, came back, and put in the code! Yahoo!

I just asked if I was able to sign up for it. He went to check and came back and said no problem.

Thanks!
