Lets say I purchase the first night in Hilton.com and the second night through Expedia, does anyone know what would happen with status benefits and point earnings?
I did a 4 night stay, 3 booked via Hilton and last night via hotels.com. I got benefits for all 4 nights but points and credits for only 3 booked via Hilton.

Thanks for the info - with the recent changes to the Citi Prestige (4th night free benefit now requires cardholders to book through the ThankYou network which counts as an online travel agent), this seems like it could be a strategy to offset some of the devalued benefits.

Hotels.com credit PLUS Hilton Honors Points

I have found a workaround for this that consistently works. I book my Hilton stays through Hotels.com and choose the Pay At Hotel option. I then pay for my stay at the hotel using my Hilton Surpass Amex card. Amex will credit 12x Hilton points to my Honors account as all they see is money spent at a Hilton brand hotel, they donít know it was booked third party. I end up with my Hotels.com credit and Honors points.

This is not a workaround, it is intended to work this way. You aren't getting Honors points from the stay, just the credit card spend.
