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.
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.
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.
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 (August 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.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
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.
