Four Readers Get Hilton and National Car Rental Elite Status and United Miles. Do You?

This week I offered a giveaway of three Milepoint Premium memberships.

Milepoint, the frequent flyer community that I co-founded, is offering a Premium Membership at $49 which gets you:

  • Hilton HHonors Gold elite status through the beginning of 2015.
  • 1000 United miles
  • National Car Rental Executive status
  • One free day of parking with Parking Spot (no minimum stay required)
  • And more.

Each of the three winners receives premium membership on Milepoint, which comes with all of the above benefits.

There were 1060 entries before the cut-off time of 8pm Eastern yesterday.

So I drew 3 winners at random.

HH gold

Matt B. said,

National status. I love being able to pick out a nice car and I’ve found their service to be excellent

Michael said,

Hilton HHonors Gold please

I then decided to pay for a fourth prize, because honorable mention really has to go to Elizabeth whose entries were just outstanding.

Elizabeth said,

Gary, what a great idea for you to marry
Deals galore with Milepoints for traveler wary.

My heart, so fond, the deal with Hyatt,
to rest my head with peace and quiet.

For the ten percent discount,
a vocal campaign I’d mount –

At the top of my lungs, I’d sing
of Hyatt dreams thanks to you and a View From the Wing!

Elizabeth said,

Seth, might I be so bold as to say I’d like HH Gold?
With View from the Wing, this status I’d bring
To a room with a view, and yummy hot breakfast too!
Forget airline miles, with HHGold, I’d travel in style!
The world I would roam, and even bring my travel gnome!
This Milepoint would be a treat, perhaps even an upgrade to a suite!

Elizabeth said,

Time being worth more than money, when I want to travel with my Honey.
I’ll take the KVS Availaility Tool – easy to book points trips – it totally rules!

Being blonde, I need all the help I can get, KVS certainly does the trick!
Off to London, Paris, Kiev or Rome, KVS helps me get away from Home.

Now and then I have a brain fart, 😉 with KVS it’s just read the charts!
Really Gary, booking points trips can be scary; using KVS it won’t be weary!

Then again, don’t say my choice, those points seats fly fast so I’ll quiet my voice!

Elizabeth said,

Hard to chose just one perk and time is running out!
Poem comments may be a quirkthey all bring travel clout
So many great perks, it’s hard to pick one.
So a poem or two I wrote in hopes to win… but time ran out when a neighbor stopped by.

Thanks Gary for all you do for us travelers!

Congrats to all, and thank you to everyone that entered!
