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.
Hilton HHonors has extended its current ‘double points’ promotion by a month.
Whilst originally due to end on 30th December, ‘Double Up’ will now run until 31st January.
You do NOT need to register again. If you registered originally back in August, you remain registered.
If you didn’t register before but will have a Hilton stay before the end of January, you will need to register to take part and this can be done via the Hilton website here.
‘Double Up’ wins the 2016 award for simplest hotel promotion: you will receive double base points on every stay. No hotels excluded, no cap, no minimum stay requirements. Bookings made via the Hilton app will receive triple points.
No hotels are excluded. Qudos to Hilton for getting rid of the long list of ‘non-participating properties’ which used to blight their promotions.
Even if you choose ‘points and miles’ (usually 10 base points per $1 plus 1 airline mile per $1) instead of ‘points and points’ (usually 10 base points per $1 plus 5 bonus base points per $1), you still receive double base points for the ‘points’ element.
You can register for ‘Double Up’ here if you haven’t already. No registration = no bonus.
If you can’t remember if you registered, click through and try to register again – it will tell you if you have already signed up.
