Hilton HHonors has launched yet another competition for members in the UK. This is the third one in as many months – but it would be churlish to complain!
To celebrate the 10 year partnership between Hilton and the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 team, you could win:
First prize: 1,000,000 Hilton HHonors points
Second prize: 5 x a tour for two people of the McLaren Technology Campus in Woking
Third prize: 10 x McLaren-Honda caps signed by Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso
I tend to value a Hilton HHonors point at 0.3p which would make the first prize worth around £3,000. However, with 1 million points to play with, you could redeem at one of the high-end Hilton resorts and get substantially more for your money.
If you had Hilton elite status – which comes free with their UK credit card – you get five nights for the price of four when redeeming. 1,000,000 points would then get you 12 nights at the Conrad Rangali resort in The Maldives, for example, which is worth around £12,000.
Entry is free and entry is easy so you have no excuse.
Simply visit this page here and enter your Hilton HHonors details. The competition closes on July 20th.
