There Are Many Ways to Get Hilton Points in Addition to the Hilton Credit Cards

Check out my posts on all the ways to earn Hilton and Hyatt points!

Note:  Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).

And if you’re feeling adventurous or prefer a local, more neighborhood feel, Airbnb is a great way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.

Bottom Line

There are lots of cheap flights available today!  Remember, low fares usually don’t last, so book soon if you want to get in on these deals.
