When you travel as much as I do, you grow a deep appreciation for loyalty reward programs. I try my best to stay within one reward system when I can – earning airline miles and hotel points are a major plus for me because they allow me to sweep my family away on fun little getaways when I’m not traveling for work. That’s why I’m a Hilton HHonors member. The program is free to join and when you shop in the Hilton HHonors Shopping Mall, you can choose from over 20,000 items – including gift cards, theme park tickets, flat screen TVs, iPads, designer handbags, and even toys.
Or maybe your family has a mantra that is similar to mine – ‘experiences over things’ is what we always say. If so, then the Hilton HHonors Experience Rewards program includes once-in-a-lifetime experiences under the Golden Moments Rewards that are made just for you. You can go chocolate-making in the Netherlands and wine-tasting in France – or go Formula 1 race car driving in Germany and hot-air ballooning over the Spanish Pyrenees – it’s all up to you. Or maybe you’re most interested in supporting your favorite charity – and you can do that by redeeming points for a cash donation through the Hilton HHonors Giving Back Program. If you’re not a member yet – be sure to join, membership in the Hilton HHonors Rewards program is free – join at www.HHonors.com!
While loyalty reward programs are popping up everywhere nowadays, Hilton HHonors has something special to celebrate because this year marks their 25th anniversary! The first member joined in 1987 and since then HHonors has grown to over 30 million members worldwide, offering more ways to earn and redeem points than any other guest-loyalty program out there.
Naturally, with a milestone this big, Hilton HHonors wants to celebrate – and they want to celebrate with you! From October 1-25 Hilton HHonors Members can check out the 25 Days of Winning Sweepstakes, where a new, once-in-a-lifetime prize is being given away each and every day.
Erika’s Hilton HHonors Wishlist
Walt Disney World 7-Day Magic Your Way Ticket – 297,500 Hilton HHonors Points each – We’ve been dying to take the kids to the “House of the Mouse” for over a year, now. Since this is my wishlist, and I’m a Disney nut – we’re theming it around a Disney vacation.
Canon EOS 5D Mark III Kit with 24-105mm IS Lens – 2,535,500 Hilton HHonors Points – to take photos of my kids at the house of the mouse that are so awesome, you’d think I was a photographer. Or at least that is what I’d tell myself.
Tiffany & Co. Sterling Silver Twist Knot Earrings – 87,000 Hilton HHonors Rewards Points. These earrings are so chic, yet very understated – perfect for everyday wear. So even if I’m schlepping a giant DSLR around the Magic Kingdom (see above) at least I’ll maintain a shred of class and dignity. Or at least class – dignity optional.
Nintendo 3DS XL 2 Game Bundle – 203, 500 Hilton HHonors Rewards Points. These might actually keep the kids somewhat quiet and happy on the 5 hour cross-country plane ride from Los Angeles to Orlando. Even if we only get 2.5 hours out of them, they’ve done their job.
Kate Spade Rainspot Tablet Sleeve – 31,000 Hilton HHonors Rewards Points. As a blogger I don’t go anywhere without my tablet – even if it’s on a family vacation (how else would I document it all?) This Kate Spade tablet sleeve assures that I can travel stylishly – even if I do have two young children pulling on my skirt…
Vince Camuto KAT Satchel – 164,000 Hilton HHonors Rewards Points. To carry my tablet in, once it’s swathed in Kate Spade. And probably the kids Nintendo DS XLs too. And maybe my new DSLR, if I can find a way to shoehorn it in there. Hm, maybe I should consider a duffel bag instead?
Luxury Resort Escape for Two – 1,322,000 Hilton HHonors Rewards Points. Because after all of that time in Walt Disney World with both kids, my husband and I deserve a little alone time, don’t you think?
