Can children earn tier points?
Yesterday I looked at how to use both BA and avios.com Household Accounts as part of our ‘Avios Redemption University’ series. As we’re talking about Household Accounts, I wanted to look at an extra quirk linked to these which lets you get around the rules on children being blocked from British Airways Executive Club. There is, however, no need to miss out on any Avios points when your children are flying on a cash ticket. They can become a member of a Household Account and therefore earn Avios and tier points. But, of course, there is a snag if you are a member of a Household Account – you can only redeem your Avios for members of the Household Account or the six people on your ‘Family and Friends’ list.

How many points is a diamond tier?
Hilton Honors Diamond: $2,880 – Enjoy complimentary breakfast with Hilton Diamond or Gold status at the Conrad Bora Bora. SUMMER HULL/THE POINTS GUY The Hilton Honors program’s top tier is Diamond status, typically earned after 30 stays or 60 nights or by earning 120,000 base points in a calendar year (which equates to $12,000 in spending).
- You’ll also be upgraded to Diamond status by spending $40,000 in a calendar year on the Hilton Amex Surpass or Hilton Amex Business cards, or you could get it automatically by opening the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card,
- The information for the Hilton Aspire Card has been collected independently by The Points Guy.
The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer. For this analysis, we’ll assume that you complete 36 stays covering 72 nights, split evenly between full-service and limited-service properties.
|100% points bonus||You’ll earn a 100% bonus on all stays, taking home 10 extra points per dollar spent (or 5 additional points at Home2 Suites). With 72 nights at $150 per night, that works out to $10,800 in spending, giving you 108,000 bonus points, worth $648.||$650.|
|Milestone bonuses||As noted above, milestone bonuses of 10,000 points kick in starting at 40 eligible nights and then continue for every subsequent 10 nights stayed. Diamond members will earn another 30,000 points after reaching 60 nights in a year. If you maxed these out, you’d take home four 10,000-point bonuses plus the 30,000 point bonus, a total haul of 70,000 points (worth $420).||$420.|
|Two complimentary bottles of water per stay||Same benefit, more frequent utilization.||$50.|
|Fifth night free on award stays||Same benefit, more frequent utilization.||$125.|
|Room upgrades||Diamond members enjoy similar upgrade perks as Gold members, but the terms and conditions specifically include suites (“junior,” “standard” or “one-bedroom”). However, this same section also includes the qualifier “may include,” so there’s no guarantee. This is a definite improvement over Gold, so we’ll bump the value to $30 per night at the full-service locations.||$1,080.|
|Food and beverage credit/breakfast||Same benefit, more frequent utilization.||$360.|
|Executive Lounge access||Another key difference between Diamond and Gold status is that Diamond members are guaranteed Executive Lounge access at applicable properties, even when you aren’t upgraded to an Executive Level room. In addition to providing a food and beverage credit or breakfast, most lounges put out an evening spread of hors d’oeuvres, and many international ones include complimentary alcohol as well. Since this only applies to select properties, and since we’ve already captured the food and beverage credit and breakfast in its own category, we’ll peg this at an extra $100.||$100.|
|48-hour room guarantee||Hilton Honors also provides guaranteed availability for top-tier Diamond members with 48 hours’ notice. This sounds like a great perk, but the policy is filled with exceptions and loopholes (not to mention exorbitant prices). As a result, this perk’s actual usefulness is minimal, so we’ll peg it at a conservative $25.||$25.|
|Complimentary premium internet||Hilton Honors provides complimentary internet to all members of its loyalty program, but Diamond members can access premium networks during stays. I haven’t noticed much of a difference in speeds whenever I’ve connected to these services, so we’ll peg the value of this at just $1 per night.||$70.|
