Short 10k in points. What to do?

So I am in the process of booking a five day stay, but I am short about 10k in points. Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? I have avail. points with various airlines, however, I do not think any of them transfer into Hilton.

Open to suggestions.

I think requesting a gift in miles from the forum is against the policy.

I did, however, check HHonors website and it said I could transfer miles from American Airlines to Hilton. However, I went to American Airlines AAvantage section and there is no way to do this.

Any idea on this?

From the American Airlkines forum, found with a search on 'Hilton, transfer'.

Buy the points if you want the nights. 10,000 pts cost $100.

I wonder if anyone knows of a slick workaround? For instance, could this OP merge his account with someone else who has a 10k balance he is willing to give up?
