Proof that the Conrad / Waldorf-Astoria bonuses are still paying out

Back in January, I wrote that three special Hilton HHonors bonus promotions for its luxury Conrad and Waldorf-Astoria brands still appeared to be working.

As I found out when I was in Ras Al Khaimah at the Waldorf-Astoria last week (photo below), this is definitely still correct.

Take a look at the screenshot below.  You will see bonus point entries for 3,000 points (in the separate box at the top), 4,000 points and 5,000 points.


As I found out in New York in 2014, you will receive these bonus points even on reward stays.

The first offer is for 2,000 bonus Hilton HHonors points for every NIGHT at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotel.

The registration page is here.

That accounts for the 4,000 points entry on my statement.

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 registration page for this offer is here.

This accounts for the 3,000 point entry on my statement.

The third offer is for 5,000 points on your next stay of two nights or more at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotel.

The link to register is here.

This accounts for the 5,000 point entry on my statement.

In the last few days, Hilton has updated the pages above for the first and last offers to confirm that they will continue to be available until 30th April 2016.  Make sure you register for all three if there is a chance for you to stay at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria in the next 6-7 weeks.

How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards

How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (August 2022)

There are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards.  Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses.

    When does the Barclay’s free night certificate come through? I have a line on my HHonors online account saying “Barclay’s free night certificate” but no email with information about how to book. Been a few weeks now.

    • Nick says:

      That’s strange. I’d call HH and ask them if they can see the Free Night Cert on your HH account. That way they maybe able to give you the ID number for the Certificate. Then just ask them to put you through to the reservations department.

    • Yuff says:

      I had the same – as soon as it showed on my Hilton account I was able to use it 🙂

      • Matt says:

        Thanks both, I’ll give it a go in the morning.

        • Matt says:

          Update: the lady in the call centre was able to see the voucher in my account and had no problem booking. No idea why I didn’t get an email, but all sorted in the end.

    • Nick says:

      Matt, where are you going to redeem your free night voucher at?

    • lee moss says:

      our free night voucher come through after 1 week after spending the £750 very fast

      • Alan says:

        Ditto – surprised how quickly it came through actually – about a week after I went over the £750 trigger!

  • StevieM says:

    I take it booking through a 3rd party i.e. BA Holidays doesn’t trigger the bonus?

  • Matt says:

    OT: Could someone remind me which is the Hotel Reward Programme about to be discontinued from the Amex Platinum programme. I want to lock it in for a year.


  • lee moss says:

    im going to be using the free night certificate to stay in conrad Samui , they have confirmed its valid for this offer already as they have 2 properties in Samui and its valid only at one of those properties , are these bonus points possible with this voucher ? if so do you have to register the offer to make it work any one who cant help me with an explanation would be gratefully appreciated

    • Rob says:

      Click register above and see what posts. Nothing ventured ….

    • Nick says:

      Lee, how will you be getting to the Conrad Samui whilst on the island? Taxi’s can be a rip off so it’s worth hiring a car.

      • lee moss says:

        Hi nick ive been going to samui for 7 years , I always Hire a bike while there , yes your right the taxis are expensive there

  • Matt says:

    OT: Having fun with the Hilton website today.

    Just seem to have booked a room without going right through the payment stage of the process. I have a preferred card set, though, or perhaps I will be required to pay later? Good value mind – flash sale prices another 30% below the minimum prices no the display ads.

    Earlier managed to book 2 rooms somehow on the same night., though they were kind enough to reverse one.

    And just received 500 points for listening to a gentlemen who discovered that there aren’t any more offers available specific to me today.

    • Alan says:

      If you’ve got a saved card then it does only take a few clicks to book – it will show a summary along with the 4 digits at the end of the card on file and show you the cancellation terms, etc but there won’t be any big area to enter card details since they’ve got them already (you can of course change them if you want). When you’ve used it a few times I find it pretty painless compared to some other hotel chains.

  • Matt says:

    Not £390: £290 !

    Shocking maths, and I’m not even an Oxford Uni graduate.

  • Richmond says:

    Thanks. I have 4 nights stay at Conrad soon. It should give me extra points requird for reward stay in Conrad Tokyo 🙂

  • Daniel says:

    Landed 5000 for Conrad Bangkok Last Weekend 😉 Thanks to HFP I started my HHonors stays with Conrad London in December and I have 100k points already! 🙂 Thanks Raffles.
