HOW TO BOOK THE OLD HILTON RATES (AMEX AXON)
If you have the Hilton HHonors Card from American Express, you can still book under the old rates until June 15th 2013. This means a category 7 for 4 nights for only 145,000. The old regular rate was 50,000 points per night. 4 nights would cost 200k points but you get them for 145k, almost 28% savings.
Until June 15, 2013, you can book for these rates

AFTER June 15,2013, there will be some new categories and the new prices for these are significantly more. Now you will have to save up 300,000 points for 1 night at a category 10 which is crazy expensive!

Many of the hotels have changed from a category 7 to 9. Yes, your points have dropped SIGNIFICANTLY in value. Take advantage of this extension and use your points to book some of these hotels that have jumped to category 9 but at the old category 7 rate.
