Money-Saving Thursday #4: Tips for FREE Hilton Hotel Stays

Sydnee and I enjoyed our quick trip to Chicago this past weekend. We attended the Lollapalooza Music Festival where Trey's band Crass Mammoth rocked the BMI stage! The music was so powerful and loud it shook my insides, literally. Don't worry my heart seems to still be attached and upright.
Best part of the trip? Staying on the Executive Floor of the Chicago Hilton at 720 South Michigan Avenue in a King Room for FREE! Hilton Honors is THE BEST hotel reward program ever! I love Hilton Hotels because you know what you're getting when you stay with them: a clean, fresh room that feels like home.

5 Tips for staying free:

  • Join the Hilton Honors Program
  • Book as many stays as possible at the Hilton Family of Hotels. You receive points/bonus points for every stay
  • Use your American Express card to maximize your points with Membership Rewards. Receive 1 point for every dollar you spend on the card. AMEX runs bonus points offers too!
  • Redeem hotel stays when points are on sale
  • Sign up for Hilton Honors emails to receive news of discounted rooms
I've taken some pretty sweet family vacations with FREE hotel rewards. We stayed at the Double Tree Times Square in New York FREE! Everyone wants a reward program that works for them...this one is it!

Racking up the points,
The Happy Handicap


  1. We use Wyndham rewards. Have got a few rooms free.

    1. I have a Wyndham account too! La Quinta is the only other hotel reward program that I've gotten a free room from. I like Hilton because it seems the points add up to free quicker.
