Register now for the new Hilton ‘2000 bonus points per night’ promotion

I wrote a long piece yesterday about the changes to Hilton Honors (now missing the second capital ‘H’ in Honors!).  Today I want to focus on the new Hilton Spring promotion – ‘2K Every Day’ – which has just opened for registration.

To give Hilton credit, it is very straightforward with minimal small print:

You will earn 2,000 bonus Hilton Honors points per night for every night you stay between 1st February and 30th April.

The small print can be summed up as follows:

You need to register in advance via the Hilton website

Both cash and reward nights will earn the 2,000 bonus points, as long as your reward night has an incidental charge added to the bill which triggers base Hilton points

If your stay is not a qualifying stay for base points (eg because you booked via Expedia or another third party) you won’t get the 2,000 bonus points either

I tend to value Hilton Honors points at 0.33p, although this may move up or down when we see full details on the changes to the scheme at the end of February.

You are looking at a bonus of £6.66 per night on that basis.  Given that you will also receive your base points, status bonus etc it could work out nicely.

There is no minimum stay requirement.  Importantly, all Hilton Family properties (Hilton, Hampton, Curio, Waldorf-Astoria, Conrad etc) are taking part – there is no list of non-participating hotels.

You can earn the bonus on two rooms per night, as long as both rooms are booked in your name and the bills are merged together (this is important) so that you only pay one bill.

This is a decent offer and you should make sure you register here if you have any Hilton stays coming up over the next three months.   What your Hilton points will be worth after the end of the month is something we will discuss in future Head for Points articles!

  1. An incidental spend on a reward night at a Hampton doesn’t appear to get base points – does anyone know of a way to participate in this offer when staying at a Hampton please?

    • My 10k HH pts reward stay at a Hampton in FL, US qualified for the 5k Visa bonus.

      2x $1 bags of peanuts from the reception larder did the trick.

      10000-(5000+250)=4750/night

      Pretty good value for a $114 room 🙂

  2. Rob are Hilton including ‘Points and Money’ bookings too? I noticed these weren’t mentioned. By default that would include a cost each night anyway so I presume I wouldn’t need to pay for anything from the minibar. As a Diamond this will stack incredibly well for me in Tallinn in 2 weeks.

    • Points and Money bookings are classed as Reward stays. Under the old rules, you don’t get Base points for Points and Money stays. Under the new rules , the new Points and Money rates, supposedly starting at the end of February, will grant Base points for the Money part. In your case, in 2 weeks, to be on the safe side, I would definitely charge some incidentals to the room.

    • Tricky. Currently the money bit of P&M does not earn points so you’d need to make a charge.

      After 1 March, the new style P&M bookings WILL earn so no incidental charge necessary.

    Slighty OT – my Hilton points are expiring in 2 months and ideally I won’t have to do a mattress run to keep them. Applied for the Hilton VISA some time ago and was rejected, no idea why as I have the IHG card from Creation as well (possibly too many?).

    What’s the best way to re-activate the clock on these points, is there a method without staying at one?

  4. Just had Email from Virgin flying club 10% bonus from Tesco Clubcard to flying club Transfers

    Dear Lee,
    Take the plunge and start earning miles with your weekly shop. Convert your Tesco Clubcard points into Flying Club miles from 1 February to 15 March 2017 and earn an extra 10% bonus^ on the points that you transferred.

    Why not make it really easy and sign up to Auto Convert? It automatically turns all your future Tesco Clubcard points into Flying Club miles, so you can sit back and watch your miles balance soar. See how quickly your trip down the shopping aisles can turn into your next trip to magical foreign shores.

    • Genghis says:

      My miles balance this quarter certainly wouldn’t be soaring! Certainly a lack of opportunity.
      And 10% bonus? If you need the miles then fair enough but wouldn’t persuade me to convert.

  5. mark1980 says:

    OT but any idea how long IHG Accelerate pointsw take to post after hitting all of your targets? Thanks.

    • Genghis says:

      As a reference point I had a stay 20 Jan and the relevant points posted yesterday. But IIRC T&Cs say allow 8 weeks.

    • Nick Burch says:

      My IHG Accelerate dashboard is still showing as no stays / no points earned, but my IHG account is showing the bonus points from one of my challenges from a stay in mid January! Oddly not the January stay bonus, a different one… IHG IT on top form as ever!

  6. Would the points be triggered for a day stay?

    • I doubt it – room rental for a day normally doesn’t count as an eligible stay under Hilton Honors T&Cs – double-check them though.

  7. OT

    I have the usual array of Gold hotel memberships from AMEX Platinum. Does anyone have any reasonably priced recommendations for Copenhagen? Ideally centrally located.

    Thanks

    James

      I had a decent enough stay at the Park Inn as a Club Carlson Concierge. Out of town location, but right next to the metro (from the Airport into town). Surprisingly good breakfast, but you won’t automatically get that as a CC gold.

    • The Hilton at the airport is pretty good. If your stay is before the end of April, grab an old-style points and money redemption for 20000HH + DKK574 before this option disappears forever

  8. the real harry1 says:

    O/T sounds like the Aslef vs Southern Railway dispute is over – sure to please a few people here!

    Good for connections to Heathrow as well, I guess

    OT: Rob (and others), I recall you were looking to buy Hyatt points for yourJapan trip, if you have not seen this already then goid luck with your bonus…

  10. hi rob

    you gonna be doing an article on BA flightpass?

    interested to hear your thoughts.

    cheers

    • I’ve mentioned it briefly but it is so dependent on how and where you fly that it is difficult to say much about it apart from ‘it exists, it might work for you, it might not’.

  11. OT – the Virgin Atlantic White American Express and Visa now offers 10000 bonus miles on sign-up, not 3000 as mentioned on the latest credit card update page. The black one is correct at 25000.
