Hilton Grand Vacations is currently offering a pretty nice vacation package that requires attending a timeshare presentation. This deal is scheduled to end tonight, but I just booked it myself and got an even better deal than advertised: 4 nights of hotel plus at least 110,000 Hilton Honors points for $349 + tax ($392 total). There are likely only a few hours left to book this, but it might be worth a phone call in my opinion.

The Deal

  • Hilton Grand Vacations is offering a vacation package deal that includes 4 nights of accommodations in either Orlando or Las Vegas plus 100,000 Hilton Honors points for $349.

I apologize for not writing about this deal sooner, but I hope that it is better late than never for some readers.

This particular Hilton Grand Vacations offer is good for stays in either Orlando or Las Vegas. Both offers are the same — $349 (plus tax) for 4 nights and 100K Hilton points by agreeing to attend a 2-hour timeshare presentation. You buy the package now and then have 12 months from the date of purchase to use it, but you can not check in sooner than 30 days after purchase.

With that in mind, I called the number on the promotion page planning to see what they could offer. The rep I spoke with was polite and engaging and asked me to verify the offer I was seeing (obviously they have multiple offers out there and he…
