Click here for our article on Hilton’s ‘Double Up & Explore’ promotion which runs until 30th April 2023. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
Hilton Honors is offering a 100% bonus when you buy points by 7th March. Click here to buy.
The Quarter 3 promotion from Hilton HHonors will run from yesterday, 9th July, to 30th September.
I haven’t written it up before because – no surprise here for regular Hilton HHonors members – their website was broken until last night and it was not possible to register. Luckily, the website has just kicked into life and you can now register by going here.
The promotion is called ‘Triple Your Trip‘ and follows the familiar pattern of their last few deals.
Once registered, you will receive double Hilton HHonors points per Monday to Thursday night you stay, and triple points for every Friday to Sunday night. In the Middle East, the weekend is treated as Thursday – Saturday.
There is no limit to the number of bonus points you can earn.
There is a list of non-participating hotels which you can find here. This is a v-e-r-y long list, so check carefully before booking. 13 UK hotels are excluded, of which 11 are outside London.
Earlier this year Hilton announced a major devaluation of its programme, with many aspirational properties doubling in (points) price. This promotion doesn’t even begin to make up the loss of value, but if you are staying in a Hilton anyway then you’d be crazy to miss out on the extra points.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (February 2023)
There are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses.
Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card? It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Premium and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
Did you know that the Virgin Atlantic credit cards are a great way of earning Hilton Honors points? Two Virgin Points can be converted into three Hilton Honors points.
