Our hobby keeps showing up in political news! Today’s points-n-miles update comes to us from a Washington Post story about the Secret Service scandal:
IG investigators reviewed information that pointed to Dach. An agent said he saw Dach with a woman he believed was a prostitute, and another had information after reviewing records that showed he had registered a woman into his room.
Nieland’s team also found that hotel officials had waived a fee normally charged to guests staying overnight. Hilton Worldwide officials in Virginia said their records showed Dach “was not charged for additional guest as a benefit of Hilton Honor Member.” [emphasis added]
So there you have it, straight from HQ: hookers stay free at Hilton! (Or should they be referred to as “hhookers”?)
As some of you know, I recently got in trouble with the affiliate powers that be, so in an attempt to get back into their good graces, I’m going to try to spin this into some good marketing copy. Here goes:
The Citi ® Hilton HHonors ™ Reserve Card gets you complimentary Hilton Gold status, allowing you to bring Colombian ladies of the evening to your room — totally free! Also, the Hilton HHonors™ Surpass® Card from American Express comes with Hilton Silver status, which means you won’t have to pay a dime for some of South America’s hottest prostitutes to spend the night! And if your Cartegena hooker happens to accept plastic, you’ll earn 3 HHonors points for every dollar spent — meaning you’ll soon be on your way to a free night!
Citi? Amex? What do you think — am I in?
