If you weren’t fortunate enough to be targeted for the recent Hyatt double points promotion, then perhaps this Hilton promotion will bring you a little more joy. Targeted Hilton Honors members can earn up to 7,500 Hilton Honors point through January 2020.
As promotions go this one really couldn’t be any simpler:
- The first eligible stay will earn Hilton Honors members 2,500 bonus points
- The second eligible stay will earn Hilton Honors members 5,000 bonus points

Things To Note
There are are two obvious negatives and five obvious positives to this promotion 9as far as I can see).
On the negative front…
- Only targeted Hilton Honors members will earn bonus points in this promotion*
- Only paid stays will earn bonus points (award stays do not qualify for this promotion).
On the positive front…
- All Hilton properties are participating in this promotion
- There no minimum number of nights needed for a stay to count towards this promotion (1-night stays will earn bonus points)
- Unlike a lot of recent promotions we’ve seen, the first stay during the promotion period is not excluded from earning bonus points.
- Existing bookings are not excluded
- Stays that start in the promotion period but end outside the promotion period will still earn bonus points
*Note: Neither Joanna nor I have received an email from Hilton inviting us to register for this promotion – Joanna has managed to register anyway while I just get an error message – YMMV.
If you’re able to register for this promotion this should be a very easy 7,500 bonus points for any Hilton loyalist to earn.
With Hilton Honors points worth around 0.4 cents each (by my valuation), there’s an effective rebate of up to $30 on offer here and, considering the full bonus can be earned with just two 1-night stays, that’s a pretty decent deal…especially if you already have stays booked anyway.
