Hilton Honors points at Amazon
« on: July 31, 2018, 02:09:07 PM »
I got an email letting me know that my Hilton Honors points were going to expire in October.

Since I did not stay at Hilton Bayfront this year or another Hilton hotel , it did not extend my points balance past October. But I found out you can use them at Amazon :D

I got this email too. My understanding after reading it is that if you spend some points at Amazon that will keep the account active, so the rest of the points won't expire for another 14 months. :)

I currently have 300,000 points with Hilton. I have not seen this email, but I definitely will be seeking more info. Thanks for the heads up Jim!

42,960  points was worth about $85 at Amazon

Your total should about $590

We used 200,000 points for 5 free nights at a resort in Scottsdale last March. For us Minne-snow-tans that was worth gold.

This is really good to know! We stayed at a Hilton this year so we'll be getting points but not enough to get a free room or anything. I kinda figured the points would be wasted unless we start staying there more. We almost always stay at Marriott properties, so we rack up the most points with them.

WonderCon 2017 - 2019

I just used some of my points to book Kurt a room in Anaheim for next month for Morphicon. 35,000 points got a free room for a night.
A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting”
