Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available – Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature Card

With the final weeks of summer underway, Hilton is running a flash sale on US properties for the next 72 hours. If you book a trip between today (August 10, 2015) and Wednesday (August 12, 2015) at midnight ET, you’ll be able to save 15 percent off the best price on stays between Thursday and Sunday at participating Hilton properties in the US.

Note that in some cases these flash sale rates match what you’ll pay when booking as a AAA member.

Hilton-FlashSale

These special rates include Hilton’s higher-end chains like the Waldorf Astoria and Conrad hotels, as well as hotels from lower categories. Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature cardholders can also use their card to earn 6 HHonors points per dollar on the stay — and, for a limited time, you can earn 75,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 in the first three months with this card.

Here are a few examples of what you can book:

Waldorf Astoria in New York City for $262:

Hilton’s 72-hour sale rate matches the standard AAA rate.

The Waldorf Astoria is one of the most iconic hotels in New York City. As a category 9 Hilton property, this hotel will cost 70,000 points for a free night. TPG values Hilton points at 0.5 cents each, so you’ll be getting the best deal by booking the paid rate as part of this flash sale.

The discounted rate applies to standard guest rooms (above) as well as suites.

Waldorf Astoria Park City for $220:

While Park City is known by most to be a destination for skiing and film in the winter, there’s plenty to do in the warmer months in Utah. Just a few activities to keep you busy are golf, mountain biking, fishing or just sitting by the pool.

Conrad Chicago for $203:

Conrad Chicago for $203.

The Conrad Chicago is listed a Category 8 hotel, and costs 50,000 points per night. With the flash-sale (and AAA) rate at $203, you’ll get a better deal by paying for your stay.

The hotel is located near the Magnificent Mile, and popular attractions like Millennium Park and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Note that the Conrad Chicago is leaving the Hilton portfolio at the end of August, so this is your last chance to stay at this property and earn HHonors points.

Conrad New York for $220:

Conrad New York for $220.

The Conrad New York is a Category 9 Hotel, and a free night will require 70,000 points. At just $220 as part of this flash sale, you’ll get a much better deal by paying cash.
