UPDATE: Hilton's AXON awards have now ended permanently and Hilton has finished its move to a dynamic award pricing system without an award chart.
We recently reported that Hilton had abolished its AXON awards on December 31, 2016. What was unsettling for most people was the fact that Hilton did not inform anybody, and quietly discontinued the awards. Well, it seems that the general unhappiness with the lack of communication about terminating the award has reached Hilton’s ears, and they listened. For fans of the AXON awards, they are now back for a limited period.
AXON Awards Are Back but Not for Long
Hilton has announced that you can still book the awards through February 15, 2017. While this isn’t much of a reprieve in terms of time, it still gives you a chance to redeem your points if you were planning on booking one of these awards. One thing to remember is that the 4-night AXON awards are tiered depending on the category of hotel you want to book.
Before you rush out and make your booking, make sure that the award makes sense, depending on the property it could be less expensive to book it not at the AXON discount. Also, if you have Elite status with Hilton, the 5th-night free perk could be more valuable for a redemption if you're staying five nights.
We'll take the reprieve, even if it isn't very long — some notice is better than nothing. It's good to see that Hilton responded in a positive manner, but still frustrating that notice still hasn't been sent out to any eligible cardmembers; something that either Hilton or American Express could easily do.
