In April 2017 Hilton revamped its Honors loyalty program and, as part of the revamp, Hilton added a points pooling feature which is remarkably easy to use. There's no fee to pool Hilton Honors points and up to 11 people can participate so this is definitely something all Hilton Honors members should be aware of.
Hilton and Lyft have just announced a partnership that allows Hilton Honors members to earn points on all the rides they book with the ridesharing service. The partnership is effective immediately so the sooner you link your Hilton and Lyft accounts the sooner you'll start earning Hilton Honors points.
Hilton is the first program to open up registration for its second major points promotion of 2019 and with no gap between the first promotion and this new one there’s no let-up in points earning opportunities for Hilton Honors members.
Hilton is back with another points sale and just like its first promotion of 2019 it's offering a bonus of up to 100%. This time around the maximum bonus is available on all points purchases of 5,000 points or more and that's just about as good as Hilton points sales get.
Over the past few years hotel loyalty programs have expanded the ways in which members can use their points and one of the biggest areas of expansion has been in the field of entertainment. Starwood Preferred Guest (RIP) was the first hotel program to bring its entertainment offering to my attention with SPG Moments and Marriott added 'Marriott Moments' (now Bonvoy Moments) as it began to integrate Starwood into its portfolio.
Hilton has been running its first points sale of the year since mid-January but, as with all good things, the sale is coming to an end and it's ending tonight at 11:59pm Eastern - if you haven't purchases the points you need you have just a few hours left to do so.
Right now American Express appears to be offering bonuses of between 20% and 40% on transfers into the Hilton Honors program but the question is just how good of an incentive is this and is it worth transferring points at all?
I have been a Marriott loyalist for as long as I can remember and I recently earned the highest level of lifetime status that Marriott has on offer....but I'm seriously considering a move across to Hilton.
I'm not going to pretend that I follow the fortunes of the Amex Hilton Honors credit cards all that closely as Hilton isn't one of my main go-to chains when I travel (although that may change) but, as I logged in to the Hilton Honors app earlier, I couldn't help but notice that Hilton is currently offering marginally better sign-up bonuses on its co-branded credit cards than Amex is offering on its site.
Hilton has launched its first points sale of the new year and it's starting out with one of the better promotions we usually see it offer. Between now and the end of February you can earn a 100% bonus on all points purchases of 10,000 points or more.
