An interesting event has just popped up on the Hilton Honors experiences website.
Is it worth a 35,000 points punt?
This is what it says:
“Surprise Holiday Performance at Hilton London Metropole
Join us at Hilton London Metropole on Thursday, December 1st to kick off the festive season in style with a surprise musical performance. Previous musical guests have included Kylie Minogue, Olly Alexander and Ellie Goulding. Join us this year to see who will be our very special celebrity guest.
This experience for two (2) includes:
-Access to a surpise holiday musical performance on December 1, 2022
-Arrival drinks and canapes
Please note, this experience does not include rail, airfare or hotel accommodations.”
Hilton is asking 35,000 points for two tickets which, on our 0.33p valuation, is roughly £100-worth.
Do you think they will rustle up a suitably big name, and one which you would actually want to sit through?
Up to you ….
You can redeem on the Hilton Auctions platform here – search for UK events. There are eight pairs of tickets left at the time of writing – there were nine originally, I think.
