priceline?

I was hoping there is some method, like 'book CO tickets by transferring to ana" that would save some points. From dans comment it looks like hilton is known to be overpriced.

Life lesson: Never give your (credit card or cash for that matter) out to anyone who says you need to do it "right now" or else you'll lose out unless you first comb through all the fine print first.

Odds are greater than 99% that you can always get the same or a better deal a little later with a clear head/not rushed into it.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Can't emphasize enough of what Dan said, but _always_ review the fine print.  I don't know what the exact terms of what you were offered or solicited for.  Most third party/sponsored offers I've seen for "pay now or you'll lose out" deals will be in lower category hotels and/or come with massive blackout restrictions (for example, the entire months of June-August, holiday weekends, some weekends, etc).

e.g. if i am booking today i can pick a date till 6 months from now . if i am booking on sep 30 i have 6 months fom sept 30 to complete my reservation.

Perhaps these are the sort of questions you should've asked to whomever called you?  Again I don't know the terms of the offer, so I would suggest calling them and asking them.

I understand your point but as if now I don't see anything wrong with the terms they wrote
Like dates should take place within 6 months
Or pay now or loose the only thing I can imagine is that I need to take a 2hour tour from Hilton family . And the rep told me to make sure not to purchase anything during the tour
And oh I forgot I need to have income more then 80k year
