I posted back in January about Travelling Connect which is a service that lets you earn reward points for roaming on hotel and airline frequent flyer programmes and I was very exciting to see that this week my first 10 HHonors Points from Travelling Connect posted to my HHonors account!
These points posted from some roaming calls that a colleague of mine made over in Japan on the docomo network which are earned at the rate of 2 points per minute – earning me 10 whole points!
Speed of the Posting of Points with Travelling Connect
The calls were made in late January within a week of them being made, they showed up in my account as below – note that my earning partner is shown (HHonors).
These points then sat there for around 6 weeks before being moving over into my Hilton HHonors account and showed up in my points earning activity as shown below:
As I wrote in the original post if you are travelling and use roaming services then you might as well sign up and earn a few extra points here and there even if you don’t actively look out for the partner networks – points should just be earned in the background.
