Thanks to @boomy, my stay at DoubleTree Melbourne on Monday night elicited triple points, plus spend of more than $400 at this property (stay, dinner with @boomy put on room tab plus a $50 voucher purchased for future stays) will get me back $80 (so voucher is free). Love the Community knowledge :D. Oh, plus additional 1K points for dining in restaurant promotion and a bottle of red wine to sare over our meal. Capping it off - fantastic service from Paige, the Head Concierge.

5k for every two consecutive nights at Conrad or WA.


Promo valid through end of 2020!

Edit: I could register successfully but it may be targeted.

I don't seem to be able to register for ANY of these promos. I'm Diamond (via VA WP) and rarely stay at Hiltons so don't know anything of the HHonors program.

I have holidays to ASP (Oct 2019) and HKG (Feb 2020) coming up so I thought I'd investigate the Hilton brand, especially with the 400/80 AmEx offer on.

When I tried to register using an @boomy link, I get this:

165154

and then this:

165153

Clicking on the link attached to the offer, I get told I'm not eligible again!

Would buying points with the 100% bonus offer trigger the AmEx credit? Is it easy and/or cost-effective to utilise the points?

I get the same message on the first and I do not qualify message on the second. So buying points won't help.

But are they (HHonors points) worth buying to use, especially with the Amex credit? I don't think I'm going to get any value to accrue them by staying there, even if I could register for the bonus offers.

I don't know for sure on the points, but was under the impression that Points.com processes the purchase, so I would think it unlikely that the amex credit would work

@Happy Dude, why don't you ring up the hotel direct and buy a $400 voucher (for crediting against your stay, as you'll use more than that for both properties - but check that they are participatign properties first in the T&C's). I recently stayed at Hilton DoubleTree MEL and spent $376 and then (on @boomy's suggestion) bought a separate $50 voucher towards my next stay at checkout, so the 2 transactions exceed $400. Here's my Amex CC transactions and look at the top transaction :D:


18 May 19DOUBLETREE BY HILTON MELBOURNE - FLIND-$80.00
17 May 19COLES RODE 8726 STAFFORD HEIGHT$5.99
16 May 19COLES RODE 8726 STAFFORD HEIGHT$31.70
16 May 19EB *OZFEST 2019 SEAFOO RICHMOND$68.50
16 May 19STAFFORD HEIGHTS LPO STAFFORD HEIGHT$34.95
15 May 19BUPA HI PTY LTD MELBOURNE$409.25
15 May 19DEBITSUCCESS CHILDCARE NOTTING HILL$12.75
15 May 19HILTON DOUBLETREE 67857 MELBOURNE$376.15

I often buy Hilton gift vouchers during AMEX cashback promos. They used to be valid for 6 months but thanks to new law passed in Australia last year all gift vouchers MUST be valid for at least 3 years and I’m happy to say all Hilton properties I’ve dealt with so far adjusted expiry date accordingly.

@Happy Dude, over to the expert @boomy to explain. This was my first time (didn't even know they existed until I had dinner with @boomy at the DT restaurant the night of my stay). Boomy helped by giving me cash for his dinner and I charged the lot to my room.

Thanks QFWP and Boomy. Are the gift vouchers valid at other Hiltons or just the one it's purchased?
Hilton gift vouchers are valid only for the property they were purchased from. They’re a bit backward in this area unfortunately. Also make sure before you buy the hotel confirm via email they are valid for 3 years (because it’s a relatively new thing) unless you buy in person and then it will be written on the vouchers.
