Point Redemption Examples
From my recent trip back to Korea, and JapanI’ve stayed at the Hilton Hotel Narita Airport for my overnight stay in Tokyo.
This hotel was in my mind b/c of a couple of huge benefits.
– It is near the airport so there is a complementary shuttle bus to the airport. This is huge because I only need few hours of sleep before my morning flight out of Narita
– It also provides free shuttle to the Narita JR station so I can hang out.
– I was able to get a free breakfast thanks to my Hilton Honor Gold Status from the benefit of having this card.
– Umm… Free Sauna for Gold & Diamond members.
– And… it only costs me 20,000 Hilton points. Good, right?
All the benefits that I’ve got at the check in.
