Potentially Lucrative Hilton 24-Hour Sale But Be Careful of Non-Refundable Rates

Hilton just dropped an e-mail in my inbox this evening that features an upcoming 24-hour sale:

Obviously, a 40% discount is pretty nice for a quick getaway.  And, the extra 2500 points for visiting their Facebook page is a nice pop.

But, all of these rates are fully prepaid and non-refundable.

Some people are willing to sacrifice flexibility for a great deal.  I’m usually not.  It’s unclear whether this promo is stackable with other quarterly promos Hilton will have throughout the year.  For at least the first quarter promo, the T&C state it may not be combined with other select offers.  I tend to think it will be stackable.

The limit on bonus points is 4 weekend stays.  I’m guessing this will be very much a YMMV type promo.  When you consider that there are a ton of properties NOT participating in the Q1 promo, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a whole bunch of properties not load any rates for this 24-hour sale. But, there may be deals to be had for those deal junkies so inclined….

  1. Love the savings. Love the point bonus. Don’t love pre-paid, non-refundable…

  2. If I understand this, this is a 2500 bonus point offer on top of what has been an ongoing sale. There is no additional 24 hour discount. Just the points. Is that correct?

    • Élan, there is a 24-hour discount/sale as well, on January 16th.

  3. Will do… Will sign up for Starwood this wk
