News in brief:

Did you get your Hilton Diamond appreciation bonus?

If you have Diamond status in the Hilton HHonors programme, you may have received a special award from Hilton.  Many members have been given 100,000 points – enough for a night at any Hilton property, even after the horrific 2013 devaluation – as a gift.

Some people did not receive the email from Hilton, potentially because they have opted out.  As you will only receive the bonus if you agree to accept it, anyone who is Hilton Diamond and who has not heard from Hilton should go to this website and enter their account details.

You may be surprised at what you are given.  It even seems to work for people who were given free Hilton Diamond status as a British Airways Gold Guest List benefit.

Interesting currency converter website

Reader Lee got in touch to show me his currency conversion website,

As well as providing the standard conversion features, the site also has weekly news updates on the foreign exchange markets as well as – handily – fact sheets for almost every currency giving an overview of what to expect when you travel. Bet you don’t know what notes the Angolan Kwanza comes in! It is worth bookmarking.

    I phoned Hilton to complain, they said it was a random computer selection as to who got the 100k offer!!!
    Are they off this planet, what a ridiculous promotion to run.
    No offer of anything to me on the phone.
    I am not letting this one go so easily….
