Click here for our article on Hilton’s ‘Double Your Stay’ promotion which runs until 31st December 2022. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
Hilton HHonors has launched its Quarter 4 promotion – ‘More Nights, More Points’ – which will run from October 10th to January 31st.
This will operate across all of the Hilton brands, including Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria, Hampton Inn etc.
It is an easy one to get your head around. To quote:
What is the promotion?
Members who register and complete an eligible stays at participating Hilton HHonors hotels and resorts will earn their standard HHonors Base Points plus:
- “Double Points” on stays of 2 consecutive nights,
- “Triple Points” on stays of 3 consecutive nights, or
- “Quadruple Points” on stays of 4 or more consecutive nights
The registration page is not yet available, although the rules are – see here.
You will need to register before your first stay to receive the bonus. The registration link will be here but it is not working at the time of writing.
There will, no doubt, be a long list of non-participating hotels so don’t make any firm bookings yet on the back of taking part in the promotion. It could be very lucrative for long stays – although Hilton’s devaluation earlier this year still makes any points-based promotion look decidedly unexciting.
