Yes, it works. I paid our 2022 MFs for Craigendarroch Lodges and received 14x HH points.

It does work for MFs, )in some cases) but does it work for loans as the OP is asking? Maybe it does as well, but just wanted to clarify.

Cheers.

Sorry. I misread and thought they said MFs. I am not sure about loan payments.

No idea, I have never had a loan on any of the timeshares. They were all PIF.

It's been a long time since we had a loan, but it definitely worked when we did. At that time HGV was pushing everyone to get the AMEx card for their downpayment and monthly payments. Even when I went to payoff our loan, I just made extra large payments to HGV with the Amex card, and then paid off the AMEX.

Good info. Do you remember when you had the loan? Like what year?

I did it in 2021. Took the loan but then paid in full using my Aspire shortly later (basically took it to get out the door and get time to shuffle things). No experience with regular monthly payments (the interest rate to pay with card was higher and would cancel out some of the benefits of running it through for points). But got my 14x which was sweet!

I used my Hilton AMEX cards and paid off the loan for my Elara platinum unit within a few months of obtaining the developer purchase at the end of 2018. Got a nice stash of honors points that I still have for hotels if the government rate doesn’t exist and the member rate is too high.

I have been using my Hilton Surpass card to make HGV loan payments. I got 12x points on every payment made this year. I also use this card for annual HOA fees and get 12x for those payments as well.
