*A is just on NZ via AKL IIRC.
With AA you have TN from LAX and with DL you have AF and TN from LAX.

All those flights are into PPT.  You need to purchase the 45 minute RT PPT-BOB jump with some $400-$500 cold hard cash.
PPT-MOZ is much cheaper than PPT-BOB, only about $100 RT.

It was a $4,900 investment, but with $900/night BB rooms going for $128 with points it seems worthwhile.
And who knows, maybe we'll get luck with J'lem pricing as well.

I just noticed that Hilton has lowered their properties in Moorea and Bora Bora from category 7 to category 5!!!

This means just 35K/night for 1-3 night stays, 29,750/night for 4 night stays, 28K/night for 5 night stays, and 26,250/night for 6+ night stays!

Considering I just loaded up on HH points at .49cpp that makes stays there as low as $128.
$128 for Bora Bora?!?!?!?!  Sign me up!
pardon the ignorance i just searched a 6 night stay and it came out to be 35k night

Dan would you take your son to such a place?  I've thought about it but it seems like a couples place or a place you could bring older kids.

Btw, do you know of any other changes in Hilton categories?

But without paying, you do run the risk of not getting upgraded to an OWB.

At $128/night for an extra room plus the flight miles for a bbsitter I'm tempted :D.

Apparently OWB upgrades are pretty cheap (under $100/night) at either place.

From what I read, Bora Bora seemed to be several hundred.
Although, it probably depends on season...

I may have misread, but it can depend on occupancy and your status apparently.

Dan, I am sure the new WA will be a Cat 7 at 60K per night for peak season (I'm sure summer and succos is peak) so even at .5 its still $300 a night, way too much for you to be spending!! :). The value at Bora Bora is much better.
