Hilton has opened up registration for its second quarter promotion which is offering double base points on all stays. Almost all properties in the Hilton portfolio are participating (a few properties in China are excluded) so it should be easy enough to rack up a few bonus Hilton points if you have some stays coming up.
Hilton Double Points Promotion – Headline T&Cs
Hilton Honors elite members should be able to do very well here as their earnings at most properties will be as follows:
- Silver Elite – 22 points/dollar
- Gold Elite – 28 points/dollar
- Diamond Elite – 30 points/dollar
I value Hilton Honors points at ~0.4 cents each so, under the promotion, these are the effective rebates for elite members:
- Silver Elite – 8.8%
- Gold Elite – 11.2%
- Diamond Elite – 12.0%
That’s not too shabby for a promotion that requires no effort whatsoever…especially when you add in the added earnings you’d get if you used one of the Hilton credit cards (up to 14 more points/dollar) – more info available via the credit cards link in the menu bar at the top of this page.
Hilton’s current “points unlimited” promotion offers 2,000 bonus points per stay and a bonus 10,000 points after every 5 stays so this rewards those who make short, frequent and cheap stays more than those who spend more with Hilton.
The 2Q Double Points promotion flips that on its head.
With the 2Q bonuses being linked to the number of points earned it’s not a promotion that’s easily game-able for travelers used to spending as little as possible…..but those who spend quite a bit with Hilton should do very well.
Note: If you have a stay that starts before 1 May but ends within the promotion period you will only earn double points on the nights that fall within the promotion’s dates(this will also apply to stays that start within the promotion period but that end outside it).
Whether you’re frequent guest at Hilton properties or not you should register via this link before you forget.
You may not plan to stay at any Hilton properties between 1 May and 31 August but plans change and you never know when you may end up staying at a Hilton property unexpectedly – it would be a shame to leave points on the table just because you didn’t take 30 seconds to register for a free-to-enter promotion.
