You will receive 1,000 points free for changing Hilton HHonors password February 19 to March 8, 2015. Hilton HHonors will no longer use 4-digit pins for account passwords effective March 25, 2015.
I have had the same 4-digit pin for Hilton HHonors since 1999.
The biggest theft I had from my Hilton HHonors account over the years was when Hilton HHonors wiped out 30,000 points for account inactivity from 2007 to 2009 after several years of being HHonors Diamond. That move pissed me off and kept me out of Hilton brand hotels. Time healed my wound and I have stayed in Hilton hotels again over the past couple of years.
1,000 bonus points will be nice. That will put me within about 10,000 points of a what I need for a free room at a place I would want to stay.
The website is undergoing maintenance at the moment and won’t let me update my pin to a new password.
