Posted on: December 29th, 2009 by: Jason

Enroll in Hilton HHonors® now through March 31, 2010 and earn Silver VIP status after two qualifying stays (normally earned after 4 stays) within 90 days of enrollment. Double Dip® your way to earn both HHonors points and mile for the same qualifying stay at over 2,900 Hilton Family hotels worldwide. Enroll online or call 800-HHONORS (800-446-6677) from the U.S. or Canada and mention origin code USAB. (Existing HHonors members may call 800-548-8690 and request promotion code USAB to be eligible for the Fast Track VIP offer.)

Remembers it’s two stays and not two nights. Good luck!

If you own a corporate American Express card, register at this link and get Silver status with 2 stays or Gold status with 4 stays.

When we took our trip to Thailand last March, we went as Gold Hilton members and got free breakfast, lounge access, and upgraded to a suite. Great benefits!

I’m currently a Diamond member through their American Express card. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we stay at a Hilton on our trip!

The dollar coin gig is over

Posted on: December 15th, 2009 by: Jason

As I presented in class last December, it has been possible to order dollar coins from the US Mint with free shipping in order to earn frequent flyer miles / hotel points.

I lost track, but have done easily over $80,000. I’m not trying to brag, as I was an amateur compared to some people, such as “Mr Pickles” who did $800,000.

But with the recent coverage by the Wall Street Journal and the LA Times, the gig is up.

I did try and spread the dollar coins throughout the city. Just ask my babysitter, people at fast food restaurants, and Costco.

It was fun while it lasted.

500 free Priority Club points

Posted on: December 15th, 2009 by: Jason

500 free Priority Club points for taking a survey. Must be done by Dec 31, 2009.

Every little bit counts!

I currently have enough Priority Club points for 6 nights in Bora Bora or 8 nights in any other destination. Bora Bora is 40,000 a night and other destinations are 30,000 a night.

Last year, I switched to DirecTV for 15,000 and more recently opened a Chase bank account for 15,000. Opening a Priority Club Visa account will get you 30,000.
