This year, The Points Guy Awards is celebrating “Travel’s Path Forward,” recognizing that the pent-up demand for travel, paired with the industry’s dedication to safety, cleanliness and the guest experience will create an incredible future.

Adjustments to the program include extending Points expiration and member status, and reducing status qualification requirements.

Hilton has also provided Hilton Honors American Express Card Members with additional flexibility, extending expiration dates on reward certificates, while making program adjustments that maximize value.
