Home Is Where the Points Are

16th Jul 2003

There`s no place like home, especially when it effortlessly can earn both homeowners and homebuyers thousands of hotel points and airline miles. A new alliance between Hilton HHonors and SIRVA Relocation gives members the opportunity to earn 5,000 HHonors bonus points for every $10,000 in home value when they buy or sell their home through SIRVA Relocation, a worldwide relocation service. Along with the HHonors bonus points, Hilton HHonors members will receive no-obligation professional home buying and selling counseling and referrals to a national network of market-leading real estate professionals.

In addition, through the same one-stop program, members can earn up to 2,500 bonus points for a self-move truck rental and up to 5,000 bonus points for van line moving services.

“Our alliance with SIRVA Relocation gives HHonors members the opportunity to earn bonus points when buying their dream home—it`s a great perk,” said Jeffrey Diskin, president and chief operating officer of Hilton HHonors Worldwide. “Whether they are moving in or moving on, Hilton HHonors is committed to finding ways to enable its members the ability to earn points and miles at every turn in life.”

“We are delighted to partner with HHonors to help members earn a substantial number of points while simultaneously simplifying one of life`s most significant events,” said Steve Fecko, vice president of Affinity Group Services. “At SIRVA Relocation, our mission is to help homeowners buy, sell and move their home faster, easier and more affordably than ever before.”

To get started on earning thousands of bonus points, interested parties can call 1-800-228-3084. Once registered, HHonors members will be referred to a brand-name realtor that participates in SIRVA Relocation`s nationwide network. Points will appear in the participant`s account once they close escrow on the home. For more information, visit www.hiltonhhonors.com.
