I wrote back in November about Hilton‘s ‘AnyWeekend Anywhere’ promotion.

This offers very discounted weekend rates (some hotels have also listed them for weekdays, possibly in error) which are valid for any weekend in 2013.  However, you need to book by the end of January and prepay your room.

Hilton Christmas promotion

For just 24 hours, starting at 11am US Eastern Time today (so 4pm, I think, UK time), you can earn an extra 2,500 Hilton HHonors points on every sale booking, up to a maximum of 10,000 points.

I value Hilton points at £5 per 1,000 so you’re effectively getting an extra £12.50 back per booking.

To get your bonus, you need to visit the Hilton Facebook page between 4pm Wednesday and 4pm Thursday (UK time) and then book your room via the usual website at the ‘Anyweekend Anywhere’ rate.

    The Milton Keynes Hilton looks to have some £41 weekend nights, if you’re just looking to get away. Coupled with the doubled miles offer, you could also get 1500 avios (pick Iberia as your partner), it’s pretty cheap!

  • Raffles says:

    If you register for the FB promo, it is possible (but of course not certain) that Hilton will count any sale booking you made at this rate and give you the 2,500 points anyway, regardless of booking date. Slightly long shot but worth a go.
