Or the Amex AXON award??

I could not find anything about either at first glance...

Overall, a sad day... :(


Hilton is giving the fifth night free even without AXON for Silver, Gold and Diamond members.

Wow...this makes the 2009 devaluation, as well as pretty much all other hotel program devaluations over the years, look mild by comparison. :td:

+1 and let's not forget that they are also changing the earnings structure for the HH AMEX product in May eliminating the bonuses on drugstore and cable/phone/internet providers.

When are these changes going to take effect?

I have a bunch of reservations to be made for the end of the year.

Where are you getting this? Can someone post a link for those of us that have not received the official email.

Thanks now I can really get sick! I've told myself time and time again to stop hoarding points and to use them. Stupid me!

jamesteroh Feb 19, 13 2:36 pm

These rates are absurd!!!! The "premium" rates will be even worse.

At least Hilton gave us all notice fairly early in the year so we can switch loyalty programs if we want instead of waiting until December to announce this.

At least bring back the diamond force for rewards stays at these redemption rates.

NO! Not "stupid you" - it's rather "stupid Hilton"!

Well, I guess we have until March 28th to book stays at the current rates. Guess time to spend some points.

TravelLawyer Feb 19, 13 2:41 pm

The hotel I am looking at went from 50k points per night to 80k points per night. Even with the 5th night free...that's pretty ridiculous.

zachary Feb 19, 13 2:42 pm

Just as an example, I have an upcoming 10 night stay at the Conrad Maldives. Right now, it's 375K points. Under this new scheme, it would be 95,000 x 8 = 760,000 points with 2 nights free. Over 100% increase.

Outrageous.

I hasten to add: I am assuming that the fifth night free will replace the current VIP award structure.

iqbalt80 Feb 19, 13 2:44 pm

I just booked my AA Explorer Ticket for Nov/Dec and was planning to stay at the following properties.

Conrad HKG (4 day stay )
Conrad Bali (4 day stay)
Conrad Singapore (4 day stay)
Conrad Rangali Island (8 day stay)
Conrad Istanbul (3 day stay)

Conrad Rangli Island is freaking cat 10. How can i afford such resorts now :(
