New HSBC to Avios transfer bonus coming?

We may be about to see a new transfer bonus between HSBC Premier credit cards and British Airways Executive Club.

A HFP reader, ZW, found this PDF on the HSBC website – click here.

It shows a 25% bonus on transfers made between 1st December and 31st December.

This could obviously change between now and Sunday, however, so don’t rush out to make a transfer until you’ve seen the offer on the HSBC Premier website.

PS.  Our recent article on the top 10 reasons why you should get the HSBC Premier World Elite credit card is here.

Hilton Japan Tokyo sale

Excellent Hilton ‘50% off’ flash sale for Japan and Hong Kong

Hilton has launched a short flash sale covering its hotels in Japan, Korea, Guam & Hong Kong.

There are some VERY good deals here, particularly for Japan.  I saw in the comments yesterday that a few readers had snapped up a bargain.  Some hotels are only discounting executive rooms or suites, but in these cases it is still worth a look as the prices are often down to the level of the undiscounted standard rooms!

The sale ends at 5am GMT on Friday.  This means, effectively, you need to book before you go to bed tonight, Thursday.

The standard discount is 40% with an additional 10% for logged-in Hilton Honors members.  However, you don’t genuinely get 50% off because the discount is based on the refundable rate.  These sales rates are non-refundable.   You should, however, be saving at least 33% on the usual non-refundable rate.

Stays must be completed by 30th June.

You can find out more on this page of the Hilton website here.   You must book today.
