UPDATE – JANUARY 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
Click here for our article on Hilton’s current ‘Points Unlimited’ promotion which runs until 2nd May 2021. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
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 in theory will be here on the Hilton website – although, at the time of writing, the list has not been loaded. Sometimes these lists can be very long so do not make any bookings on the strength of this offer until you have seen it.
(I was caught out myself a few years ago when I made a Hilton booking purely to qualify for a promo, only to find it was the only hotel in the whole of the UK not to be taking part.)
Hilton points are not as valuable as they used to be following the 2013 devaluation. That said, you would be foolish not to register for this promotion if you have any Hilton stays in the pipeline.
Stays must be between 1 August and 31 October. Registration is required here.
How to earn Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards (January 2021)
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 Gold, Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade 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 in three Hilton Honors points. You can apply here.
You can also earn Hilton Honors points indirectly via American Express Gold, the American Express Rewards Credit Card and – for small business owners – American Express Business Gold and Business Platinum.
