Hilton HHonors has finally got around to launching its Autumn promotion – “Give Yourself 1,000 Reasons To Love Hilton HHonors”.

Hilton has, as I wrote here and here, already launched a few airline-specific promotions.  The Virgin Atlantic one is especially good, although there is nothing for Avios.

The open-to-all promo is here.  It is very simple and, if we’re honest, very unexciting.  You will earn 1,000 bonus points per NIGHT from November 1st to December 31st, except for Tuesday and Wednesday nights which get no bonus!  Don’t ask me why ….

You need to register prior to your first stay, which can be done via this link.  You should also check the list of non-participating hotels if you are thinking of moving a stay to Hilton especially to benefit from this promotion.

The best thing about this promotion is that you can combine it with the various airline promos, so you can earn the extra 1,000 points per night plus the bonus Virgin etc miles.
