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 launched its Autumn promotion – ‘Triple Your Trip’.
If the name sounds familiar, it is because Hilton ran the same promotion last year.
It is a very simple one:
The promotion runs from September 1st to December 31st
You earn triple base points for every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night
You earn double base points for every Monday – Thursday night
ALL Hilton Group hotels, including Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria, Hampton etc, are taking part (for once!)
You MUST register in advance via this link
One benefit that this promotion has over the competing Marriott MegaBonus offer (which I will cover tomorrow) is that EVERY stay counts. The Marriott ‘double points’ offer, which is what most people were offered, only kicks in on your second stay. The Hilton promotion also starts two weeks earlier.
Some people report being offered an extra bonus after registration. My wife did not get offered anything, but I received this message:
“In addition to earning Double Points Monday-Thursday nights and Triple Points Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights, you’re eligible to receive 4,000 Bonus Points on your 4th stay during the Triple Your Trip Promotion.”
It is highly unlikely that I will do four Hilton stays before the year end, but I appreciate the gesture.
