It’s a great promo, thanks for posting Binman62.
I am in with a chance, and have submitted a screenshot of my HHonors balance online, which was quite easy to do.
It ends on Sunday, so don’t dilly dally!25 Feb 2010
Yes, I entered and sent in a screen shot of my HH account and got confirmatory email acknowledging receipt.
I got an email from PC Rewards on 2 April. Checked my PC account and sure enough:
29 Mar 2010 HHONORS LUCKIEST LOSER CONTEST 20000 pts.
I had 148K points in Hilton. I have heard that the lowest HH balance awarded PC points was ~65K (thus ~13K PC points).15 Apr 2010
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) gave business traveler Charles Rosenay 2 million points – the grand prize in its “Luckiest Loser” contest that targeted unhappy Hilton HHonors elite members.
Rosenay of Orange, Conn., is an entertainer and Beatles tour promoter who often travels to Liverpool who had accured a Hilton HHonors balance of nearly 5 million points – the most of about 70,000 people who entered IHG’s “Luckiest Loser” contest. For the grand prize, IHG loyalty program dumped 2 million points into Rosenay’s Priority Club account – enough for about 80 free hotel nights.

Three interesting points:
* There were 114 other “HHonors millionaires” in the competition (I wonder how many more who didn’t even know about it)
*Beyond the grand prize, Priority Club also awarded nearly 400 million points to another 20,000 “Lucky Losers” (so the majority of people received the 20K maximum)
* The loyalty program recently asked the members of its online public community what they would do if they won the grand prize. While most said they would take a “dream vacation,” a large percentage indicated they would prefer to redeem the two million points on electronics from the Priority Club Rewards Catalog, such as HDTVs, home theater and music systems, GPS devices, flip cams, and laptops.15 Apr 2010
