Not bad... but you could of sell 120k amex for $1800 and book direct a OWB for 2 nights...

How much did you pay for the upgrade? Can you apply HH cert from the CC to any day, or just weekends? Also, do you need availability?

40k for spending the 40k for diamond status

You mean they gave you an additional 40K bonus for hitting 40K of spend? Or you just got regular 1x spend points of 40K points for spending?

Mrs. AJK is at 38K, so this would be a nice bonus, and one I didn't know about.

200+40(from the card)+30(he already had) no extra 40k bonus mentioned anywhere.

If he got the two free nights, he got the Citi Hilton Reserve.

If he got the Citi Hilton Reserve, he gets 3x on regular spend.

If he got 3x on regular spend, he earned 120K after 40k spend.

If he earned 120K HH, he would end up with more than 270K.

Therefore... we're missing something.

Yes.

Even more confusing is that if he spent $40K on Reserve, he earned a 3rd weekend night at $10k...
