Earlier this week I stumbled across an offer to improve my Hilton HHonors status to Gold Elite Status if I had a Visa Signature card. Well lucky me… I just happen to have a Visa Signature card – in fact, I have two: the Chase United Mileage Plus Visa Signature (for which I piled up 50k miles to be used on United), and the Citi AAdvantage Visa Signature (for which I received 75k miles that I used to take my family to Colombia). –Sorry, neither of those deals are formally available now. 🙁
Gold Elite Status gives me the following benefits at everything from the Hampton Inn chain to the Waldorf Astoria chain:
- 25% bonus on HHonors points awarded for stays
- Complimentary high-speed internet
- Space-available room upgrades
- Complimentary breakfast
- Executive lounge access
- Early check-in/late check-out
In the midst of my daydreaming about how I can take advantage of these as soon as possible, I received an email offer for the Hilton HHonors American Express card… They’re offering 20,000 points on the first purchase plus 30,000 more once I spend $500 in the first 3 months. They’ll also give me 2,500 bonus points for the first 4 nights I stay. I coud be up to 60,000 miles in no time at all… very tempting considering that those points could get me up to 5 nights…. more than enough for a couple of weekend getaways.
Hopefully some of you can take advantage of these offers. Thanks for taking the time to wanderlust with us.
