I don’t normally bother with the emails that say “share your opinion and get some free points!” because the points are rarely worth the time investment, but this week Hilton sent out emails to some members advising them of the chance to earn 10,000 Hilton Honors points after completing a single survey. I tried and gave up on this and it turned out that I still earned 10K easy Hilton Honors points even though I didn’t qualify for any of the surveys I tried. I’ll happily take 10K Hilton points for 14 minutes of work that it required of me. Since my wife has now also completed it, that’s 20K easy points in my household.
- Hilton is offering some members 10,000 Hilton Honors points for completing a single Guest Opinion Rewards survey
- Direct link to see if you are targeted (H/T to Doctor of Credit for the link) (alternatively look for an email with the subject line, “Share your opinion and get 10,000 Bonus Points”)
I was initially annoyed because I spent 14+ minutes trying to complete 4 different surveys only to be told that I didn’t qualify for any of them. I had started with a survey that said it was 10 minutes long and didn’t qualify, then I tried one that said 12 minutes, then 15. When I got disqualified for that, I tried a 20-minute survey (each time I seemed to have different times showing for the surveys available to me). I gave up after filling out age / race / income / background information for the 4th time and being told that I didn’t meet the needs of the survey. However, shortly after giving up on that, I received an email congratulating me for completing my first survey and saying that my 10K Hilton points would post in the next 4-6 weeks.
My wife then went to complete her first survey this morning (clicking through from the December 12th email) and successfully qualified for the first survey she tried. We chose the 8 minute survey….and it took 22 minutes and 51 seconds, so YMMV.
Overall, this was easy points for low effort. Given that Hilton points can easily be pooled, I’m tempted to help others in my family get this one done as well. Given that we value Hilton points around half a cent each, the points here are typically worth $40-$50. That’s not bad for the relatively low time investment, particularly if you have a few members in your household.
