Hilton Honors members can get a 3 night hotel stay in Orlando, Las Vegas or Myrtle Beach and 15,000 bonus points for just $199. The offer was sent by email, probably to all members. There’s a small catch however, a timeshare presentation.
Guests must purchase by July 2, 2019 to enjoy a 4-day/3-night stay for $199 plus tax in Orlando, Florida, Las Vegas, Nevada, or Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at a participating hotel within the Hilton portfolio of brands (valued at $175-$500/night). You have up to 12 months from purchase date to travel. Guests will receive 15,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points if package is purchased by July 2, 2019.
As part of your vacation package, you’ll attend a two-hour personal preview and sales presentation of Hilton Grand Vacations, where you’ll learn how you and your family can enjoy the many benefits and privileges of vacation ownership with Hilton Grand Vacations.
The offer itself is pretty good. You get a 3-night stay and 15,000 Hilton Honors bonus points for $199. So you’re really paying about $120-$130 for that stay. But that cheap vacation comes with a mandatory sales pitch for Hilton Grand Vacations. You have that you have to sit through that for two hours. They can’t force you to buy anything, but again not everyone can say “no” over and over. So if that’s something you’re not comfortable with, might be best to skip it. But if you’ve done this before, or are confident that you will resist the temptation, then could be a good opportunity.
