Hilton @Play, the ‘redeem your points for events’ side of Hilton Honors, has just launched something that, if you are a keen music fan, would be very special indeed.
On Saturday 22nd April, OneRepublic will be playing an exclusive acoustic concert at the historic Abbey Road studios in North London (St John’s Wood).
The event includes a food and drink reception before the concert.
I have been lucky enough to attend a few charity concerts at Abbey Road over the years. It is a fantastic venue, not open to the public – it is still a working recording studio – and the opportunity to take a look inside is something that keen music fans should jump on.
There are two options available. For 60,000 Hilton Honors points you can redeem for two tickets for the party and concert. 25 pairs are left at the time of writing.
A better deal is to redeem 100,000 Hilton points for the above plus a night at the Hilton London Paddington. This is a surprisingly decent hotel inside the railway station. There are currently 24 of these packages remaining.
If you don’t have the Hilton points available, you could transfer them from American Express Membership Rewards at 1:2. However, whilst the transfer will probably happen overnight if your accounts are already linked, it is not guaranteed and you risk being stuck with the Hilton points.
To redeem, go here for ‘tickets only’ or here for ‘tickets and hotel’. As the tickets only went up a few minutes ago, it is possible the event will be mainly Head for Points readers ….. although not me, as my Hilton balance is currently 6 points following a Tokyo redemption!
