Big Savings Through Hilton MVP Discount
Several years ago Hilton came out with an MVP rate, that I think was originally targeted at athletes, but could always be used by the general public. Now it appears (to me at least) that they’ve abandoned any special targeting and it can be used as a 20% off code at participating properties.
And a status challenge. If you’re not interested in getting the Citi Reserve Hilton card, you can do 4 stays or 9 nights in 90 days and secure Gold status for the next year.
And 20% off isn’t always the best deal, but for some of my upcoming stays the Hilton MVP rate is consistently coming up cheaper than both the AAA and Advance Purchase rates, and unlike Advance Purchase, can be cancelled the day of without penalty.
So it’s definitely worth adding it to your list of rates to check. Just plug in the relevant corporate codes to a normal search like the one I did above for the Doubletree in White Plains.
If you don’t know which property you want to say at, use the Hilton MVP website, which helps identify which properties are participating in your search radius, but returns slightly clunky results that are harder to compare.
