Hilton Breakfast Credits
Update 1/14/21: The Hilton PR department has walked by the claim by their social media team. They are only confirming this change through 2022 at this point. Full details here.
Last year Hilton made a change to their elite program that was received mostly negatively. It was supposed to help streamline things during the pandemic which was somewhat understandable at the time. But, many of us saw the writing on the wall and figured this would likely be a more permanent, cost cutting measure. Then late last year it was announced the credits were here to stay in 2022. Not surprising. Yesterday I shared a Hilton breakfast credits rumor that Doctor of Credit had posted in my Around the Web. One of our newest contributors John Ryan, the Vegas Teenager, reached out to them on Twitter about the change. At first he got the expected that is all we know right now response:
But a little while later, a new representative chimed in that it is a permanent change:
They also said that it will still be limited to the U.S. only, which is good news. The breakfast overseas, and lounges for the matter, are far superior and that would be a much bigger loss in my opinion.
I put a question mark as confirmed in the title because we know that social media teams can be wrong from time to time with their information. The fact that they came out and directly said it is interesting, and with the rumors swirling, have me leaning towards this being the case. Plus, it is what we all suspected would happen anyway.
A big thanks to John for hounding Hilton and getting to the bottom of this. Make sure to give him a follow on Twitter and look out for his upcoming reviews of the Dubai trip he took over the holidays here at Miles to Memories.
