UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 ‘Power Up’ promotion which runs until 31st December 2021. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
You will receive a 100% bonus when you buy Hilton Honors points by 30th September 2021. You can buy by clicking here.
It covers stays from January 1st to March 31st. Registration is required via this website.
You will earn:
Standard Miles & More miles (1 per $1) on your first stay
Double miles on your second stay
Triple miles on your third stay
Quadruple miles on your fourth and further stays
Remember that Hilton HHonors has two earning options. You can choose either:
‘Points & Points’ – 10 base and 5 bonus Hilton points per $1, or
‘Points & Miles’ – 10 base Hilton points and 1 airline mile per $1
As I value a Hilton HHonors point at 0.3p, it is generally better value to take 5 x 0.3p per $1 over 1 airline mile, which I would value at 1p max. With this Lufthansa promotion, however, the miles are worth far more than the Hilton HHonors points from your second stay.
Of course, if you don’t already have a Miles & More account, there is no point in opening one just for this promotion. You would never earn enough miles for a decent redemption. That said, it is not a bad deal for existing Miles & More collectors.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (September 2021)
