Thanks! Nice promo.

Question: If one originally books with the app, can you then later change the reservation online and still get the bonus? I ask because in the past (haven't tried lately) the app would not accept the MVP or Team USA codes.

ETA! Unlike previous iterations of the app, you CAN now use the MVP code to book ^

The app is a little buggy.

For those who live in Canada (for example) the "State" field in the information page doesn't work---it only shows US states and not any Canadian provinces. In making a booking, I just put in a random state and the booking appeared to go through (got a confirmation number on the last page on the app), but still no email confirmation, which usually comes promptly. I'll wait to cancel my previous reservations until I get the email confirmation....

Plus, once you make one reservation, it doesn't appear to be possible to make another one without either logging off and back on again, or just randomly hitting some of the other pages on the app screen. Seems odd.

The App does accept the MVP codes. Search without the code first, then choose a hotel and change your search. You can now enter the code and the MVP rates should appear. If it doesn't work at first, try it twice or thrice - eventually, the rates will show up.

I didn't need to do that. Just put the code in on the initial page, and MVP rates came up for the hotels.

Just re-booked four reservations.

Should we still expect a 4Q promotion, or is this it?

Extremely disappointing that no Android App has been released. Very disadvantageous to those of us who use Samsung products. When will an Android App be released? Preferably one that works and has good functionality (unlike the Hilton website)!

Another option for non IPhone users is to download to iPad. I did and have made some reservations that way. Will have to see if the bonus comes through.

Booked two stays - one on iPhone one on iPad.

Didn't see any point activity show up a day or two later, I'm assuming they post after the actual stay is completed.
