Via Pearls of Travel Wisdom, eligible veterans can receive up to 100,000 HHonors points per year for stays while job-searching, for training, or for relocation. Here in PA, eligibility opened up on November 3rd (article here). This unfortunately is not offered in all states, but it would be worthwhile to check and see if your state is eligible.
Hilton made headlines last year when they announced they’d be hiring 10,000 veterans over the next 5 years. Hilton already has great benefits for Active Duty and Veterans. Kudos to them for this additional benefit! You often see Hyatt or SPG get all the ink in the blogosphere, but I’m hard-pressed to find another hotel chain (or any travel-related chain for that matter) who goes to bat for servicemembers like Hilton does.
Unfortunately it’s not very easy to find. If you live in PA, go to this website, type in Hilton in the search bar, and the downloadable forms will pop up. As of this time, participating states are Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Iowa, Texas and Arizona, but I anticipate more will be opting in soon. If you’re a veteran in one of those states, google it to find the applicable forms.
