UPDATE – JUNE 2022: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
You get a bonus of 80% to 100% when you buy Hilton Honors points by 19th July. The annual purchase limit, pre bonus, is also doubled to 160,000 points. You can buy here.
Click here for our article on Hilton’s ‘More Nights, More Points’ promotion which runs until 5th September 2022. You can register for the offer 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 (June 2022)
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 with:
- American Express Gold (30,000 bonus Amex points – SPECIAL OFFER TO 19TH JULY)

and for small business owners:
