Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Hilton offering one million Hilton HHonors points to one lucky UK resident!

Hilton is celebrating 10 years as a partner of the McLaren Formula 1 team.

To celebrate, they are giving one Hilton HHonors member the chance to win 1 million Hilton HHonors points!  Even at their current valuation, you should easily be able to get £3,000 of value from that.  If you used them at the Conrad Rangali resort in The Maldives, you would get around £10,000 of value!

Ten runners-up will each win 100,000 Hilton HHonors points.

Since the competition is limited to UK residents, and is not being heavily promoted, I reckon there is a good chance that a Head for Points reader gets at least one of the prizes.

In theory, the competition is targeted as McLaren employees plus their ‘friends and family’ but that is so broad that I doubt you will have any issues.

Hilton Millionaire

Entering is simple.

Simply visit this page on the Hilton HHonors website and enter your account number.  That is it.  If you are not already a Hilton HHonors member, you can also join up via that page.

The deadline is 30th June.  There is no excuse not to take 30 seconds out of your day and give this a go, given the scale of the prize.  Good luck!

PS.  It is worth noting in the rules that Hilton values 100,000 points at £298 – which is exactly the same valuation that I have been using ever since the devaluation!
