What has this wonderful forum turned me in to? Currently on a status match with temporary Diamond Status which I will only retain if I manage 8 stays within 90 days (effectively end of Feb). Will easily get 4 stays with work trips but 8 is very uncertain. So I have just been researching cheap Hilton stays in my home town of Leeds. And I can get Sunday night stays at £48!!! So rounded 4 if those up to 200 quid. I have not yet considered the added benefits of current points promotion where I would get 2000 points per stay, and also would hit the 5th stay for an extra 10000 points, as this is a fresh plan. So while I find time this evening to calculate the value of those points, I thought I would ask for opinions. Am I mad? Because the Gold status I will retain is not much lower than Diamond. If the stays were booked, I have not yet decided whether they would be mattress runs, or whether I might try to stay, for respite from the kids if nothing else. And I would hate to miss the free breakfast that i would get.
