UPDATE – AUGUST 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 ‘More Nights More Points’ promotion which runs until 6th September 2021. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
Hilton HHonors has slipped out a short-notice promotion which will run for just under three weeks.
For every stay at a Hilton Group hotel before July 6th, you will receive 5,000 bonus Hilton HHonors points.
Remember that the Hilton Group includes Hampton, Waldorf-Astoria, Conrad, Doubletree and Embassy Suites as well as the main Hilton chain.
This offer works ON TOP of the current double points promotion which I wrote about here.
You MUST register at this page in order to receive the 5,000 bonus points.
I don’t value 5,000 Hilton HHonors points too highly. £15 would be fair. However, a £15 rebate on a cheap one night stay – on top of the double points offer – is a very good return.
The longer the stay, the less interesting the extra 5,000 points becomes.
It may be worth switching a few stays to a Hilton property over the next couple of weeks to take advantage of this. However, you should also consider the current Club Carlson offer (Radisson, Park Inn, Park Plaza) which offers triple points on all stays until June 28th.

How to earn Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards (August 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 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. The Virgin Atlantic cards are the only Visa or Mastercard products in the UK which can indirectly earn 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.
