What's the Q4 Promo?

Just check points balance on recent stays and noticed no promo points. Where's the Q4 promo gone?

I though we had the double of triple bonus point still going, but I see it finished in Oct.

Surely Q4 wasn't the "Ballot" rubbish which finished 5 minutes after starting and caught many of us out? I'll be sending a whining email if that was the case as I didn't even get an email from them about that......I only learnt of it here on AFF, the day after it finished.

Very dry bonus period HH.

Yeah, it's the ballot rubbish. I think its double or triple points from your second stay onwards. Very very ordinary. The excluded properties list is also very long.

I'm disappointed to hear that. :evil:

BTW....sorry about the missing W in the thread title. I'm not sure what happened there. :oops:

Can't recall the last good promo. Maybe they are too busy devaluating the points and don't have time to think about creative promos.

It's double points from second stay.

Not a bad promo, as it seems forward bookings have picked up and they have little need to promote.

The non-participating list for hotels out of the USA is also very small for a change.

I'm happy enough, it's not Quad points or anything, but should still give 5 or so nights in the maldives.

And the ballot was open a few weeks. I got in one day 1 but forgot to post it here! *Sorry!

That's a court-martialable offence, lad! I'll forgive you though, if you tell me everyone is elligible for the promo, regardless of whether or not they participated in the ballot! ;)

This should get you somewhere: http://www.hhonors.com/DoubleUp
Much appreciated. I note the registration must have occurred prior to the end of the first stay. My first stay was last week and now my second stay will count as my first stay.

Is anyone else not getting notification of these promos? I never used to have a notification problem with HH (VA is another story) but neither myself nor my +1 (also diamond) have had notification of either the ballot or the promo.

Anyone else miss out?

Not getting any notification either, it's damn annoying never getting HH emails. Basically I just check for the next promo prior to the old one expiring. Maybe have a chat with the HH rep on FT?

I never get any emails either despite several attempts to register and re register, I just have to remember to go hunting for them at the right time

Hmmm. I'm the same. That's a bit worrying if it's a new ploy. Not knowing has cost me about 17000 bonus points in the last couple of weeks. I don't recall getting a StayAngel notification either so maybe they didn't know either. I do see it flash up on the Hilton web site, but I don't make a habit of sitting there reading all their promos (of which only a few interest me).

I'm pretty sure it's incompetence rather than malice. Their IT is really really poor...
The points cost the hotel so extra bookings are always in their favour.

This is such a bad promo that I'm not even upset I missed it, and I have heaps of stays with Hilton coming up.

Double points still better than nothing though! Free night at the Maldives from the quarter, at the end of it :)

It is better then nothing but not by much ;)
I have about 20 nights booked until the end of Jan at an average rate of $170AU which will earn less then 30k bonus points.
I think HH can and should do better promos.

You haven't missed it yet. Just register and after your first stay you'll get the bonuses through until the end of Jan.

Very true. By reading the T&Cs it appear the folio spend (food, parking, activities etc) for reward stays should be eligible for the bonuses. I hope so, as my UAE/Maldives/Sri Lanka/Singapore holiday falls before the promo finish and I'm anticipating a sizable Maldives folio.

Play your cards right and you will retain Diamond after your Maldives holiday. By that I mean make sure you get base points on ALL your spendings (including the seaplane). It may require calling the diamond desk once or twice but it's worth it :)

I've received an email from Conrad saying they want the seaplane costs settled on arrival. I don't want that, I want it on the folio just in case I can score base points on them (3 x US$560).

I don't remember paying anything on arrival. Everything was payed upon check-out and I got base points for the seaplane after calling the diamond desk and talking to a supervisor.
