Back in May, I wrote about a competition that Hilton HHonors was running to win 1 million Hilton points. This was only available to UK residents so I thought it was worth promoting.

I’m delighted to say that a HFP reader was the winner! 

Hilton competition

Even at my lowly valuation of 0.3p per point, he will get over £3,000 of free stays from his prize – and potentially far more.

1,000,000 points would get you 12 nights at the Conrad Rangali resort in The Maldives, for example, which is worth around £12,000.  (This assumes you are a Hilton elite member and get 5 nights for the price of 4 – and you get Hilton Silver status for free just by taking out the Hilton credit card.)

Well done!
