Hilton HHonors has announced its new promotion for Spring, ‘Weekend Rewards’. Despite the name, you will earn something whichever night of the week you stay!
In a nutshell:
The promotion runs from February 1st to April 30th.
You will receive 1,000 bonus Hilton HHonors for EVERY night you stay
You will receive an additional 5,000 bonus points if your stay includes two consecutive nights between Thursday and Sunday night
A four-night long weekend, running from Thursday night to Monday morning, would earn you 9,000 bonus points. That comprises 4 x 1,000 points and 1 x 5,000 points by triggering the weekend nights bonus.
Note that there is a long list of hotels which are not participating in this offer so you may want to adjust your stays to avoid them. Most are in the USA though, so you would be unlucky to come across one in Europe.
This is not necessarily the most generous promotion currently available. On the positive side, though, it kicks in immediately from your first night. You can compare it to the competition on our ‘Hotel Promos‘ page.
