UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
Last year, Hilton ran three special bonus promotions for its luxury Conrad and Waldorf-Astoria brands. As I found out in New York, you will receive the bonus points even on reward stays.
These offers were meant to expire at the end of 2015. However, as a couple of readers have emailed me to point out, they are still working. You should register if you have any upcoming Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria stays.
The first offer is for 2,000 bonus Hilton HHonors points for every NIGHT at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
The second offer is for bonus points on your next three stays at Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotels.
Your first stay will trigger 2,000 bonus points, your second 3,000 and your third 5,000.
The third offer is for 5,000 points on your next stay of two nights or more at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
If you registered for the these offers last year, you will already be registered – there is nothing more to do. You can receive bonus points for all three promotions at the same time. Whilst the small print suggests that you can only register if you received these offers directly, this is not the case.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (September 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.
The Platinum Card comes with a limited time bonus of 60,000 Amex points (converts to 120,000 Hilton Honors points) until 2nd November 2021.
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.
