Top Guest sent me an email this afternoon informing me that I earned 500 Hilton Points! These are the best types of emails because I had no idea I had even done anything to earn any Hilton Points.
For those of you not familiar with Top Guest, basically it is an attempt by Hotels and Airlines to use Social Media to drive business. If you “check in” to a Hotel or Flight via Top Guest and share it with your Friends on Social Media, you get 50 Miles or Points.
The following Brands participate in Top Guest:
- Priority Club
- Hilton HHonors
- Virgin America Elevate
- Best Western Rewards
- Wyndham Rewards
- Kipton Hotels
- Viola Hotels
- Club Hotel
I have two Top Guest accounts, so I logged into my second account and found that if you haven’t linked your Hilton Account yet, you can do so and get 500 free Hilton Points!
I don’t use Top Guest that often, although many times I will randomly check in somewhere like the Holiday Inn for the Chicago Seminars and then to my surprise, get an email saying I earned 50 Priority Club Points!
Some people who work near participating Hotels or Airports, check in on Top Guest every other day and earn 50 Points for that.
While the 50 Points you get for each check in aren’t a ton, it is better than nothing and is an easy way to keep the mileage clock from expiring.
If you haven’t signed up for Top Guest yet, I highly suggest doing so. At a minimum you will get 500 Free Hilton HHonors Points!
