Re: Hilton Master Thread
Best Hilton CC is sapphire reserve. Quickest way to get status is to spend $40k on a Hilton CC.

fair enough but 3x ur x 2c value = 6c
12 HH x .5 c value also 6c

Although I would agree that its easier to get higher values out of the UR and .5 is right around the high value of HH.

i have that. what do you mean? does it give status?

CSR doesn't give Hilton status.  Only AMEX Platinum and Hilton Branded cards.

I have grappled with this a lot because I spend tons on hotels with my business meetings and I do end up putting everything at Hiltons on the Surpass because with the 12ppd and being careful about redemptions (getting close to .01 a point) I'm getting a 8-12% return. When I factor in points I earn from the hotels themselves, I figure hotel stays are earning me about a 30% rebate in points. If you aren't gonna try for aspirational rewards and just want the flexibility get the CSR but my Surpass pass has enabled me to go to the Conrad Maldives and the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem for Shavuot and all of this past Pesach (and they have nights open next Pesach)!  I've booked the Waldorf Astoria Boca Beach club for 64k a night when rooms are $800+ a night and I'm booked into the Conrad Koh Samaui (status gets me free KOSHER breakfast) next winter so again it's not as flexible as the CSR but I have had some truly unbelievable experiences because of this card.

Re: Credit Card Car Rental Insurance
Thanks. Any ballpark ideas on insurance cost?
$10+ a day

Your best bet is to call an agent.

Re: Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem
I have an upcoming stay at the WAJ, booked through a combination of different ways - some (3rd party) hilton certs, hilton points and chase points, with three different confirmation numbers.  Does it make sense to reach out in advance to combine them into one or is it too much of a hassle (and I should just deal with it upon arrival)?

Iíve done back-to-back reservations without changing rooms but I do ask for (and have gotten every time) the two drink certificates for each stay. Youíll most likely have to ask but you should be able to get six drink certificates from these bookings. Hope you have a blast and enjoy (six) LíChaims!  ;D

Re: Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem Guess they didn't learn their lesson from last year when hotel was only around 70% full and every other hotel in yerushalyim was over booked

Could have been awful, but actually turns out pretty good:
TRYP Bat Sheva Jerusalem now bookable for 7,500 Wyndham Rewards points per night (see new thread).
