Today I picked up my new Hilton HHonors Credit Card from my mail. Yes, it finally arrived! A little less than two weeks ago I applied for the card.
This card comes with a sing-up bonus of 10,000 points, gives me 3 points per euro hotel spend and 2 points per euro for all other spends, and Gold status with no stay/night requirements.
If I spend 20,000 euros in a calendar year using this card then I hit Diamond level, but I don’t think I will pursue this. Though it would be cool to have some top tier status in any program.
I agree with Gary of View from the Wing that Hilton Gold status is a great thing.
Since I usually have only one-night stays at properties like Hilton I tend to take the 1,000 bonus points instead of a free breakfast. If I am lucky and get upgraded to the executive floor I happily take in breakfast in the executive lounge. If not? Well, I’ll have breakfast somewhere outside the hotel.
Today is a good day 😉
