I’m hoping to get some thoughts on this, as I can’t decide what to do. I’ll be staying at the Conrad Hong Kong for one night in early March. I was planning on using 40,000 points for the stay, but as part of Hilton’s January 50% off sale, it’s only $210USD all-in ($183USD pre-tax). While it includes the breakfast buffet (which I doubt I’ll take advantage of, since I’m hoping for a club upgrade), it’s also an advance purchase rate, which means it’s non-refundable. Generally I never book non-refundable rates, but the flexible rate doesn’t qualify for the sale, meaning a flexible revenue booking would be around $400.
So, which would you do? For what it’s worth I have about 300,000 Hilton points for which I have no other immediate use….
