Awesome promo and will certainly encourage spending. I like the credit card bonus too. Keep them coming!

I surprisingly received a 2500 point "signup bonus" for a stay last month, but I have held the card for 3 or 4 years.

Though back when I signed up, only one set of the four 2500 points posted on their own - the other three were credited after a complaint to barclaycard, who paid me additional compensation.

Yes, very disappointing. Between this and granting Gold/Diamond status for anyone with a HH Amex, Hilton once again shows where their true priorities are... and it's certainly not with guests who have actual BIBs.

Same here. Although I was sent a new card after the first one expired.

Remember, those credit card customers could be more profitable than people who just stay in Hilton hotels.

Not yet; tried at 0730 AM Eastern Time. Looks like someone from Hilton corporate is going to have to drive out to Ashburn and turn on the data center.

Offer expired!

My UK Hilton Visa doesn't get much use these days - but happy to reuse it in the autumn......

Just need to remember to change it on bookings - or tell the hotel.
