UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2020: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
Click here for our article on Hilton’s current ‘Double Rewards’ promotion which runs until 31st December 2020. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
Hilton is also offering a 100% bonus when you buy points until 31st December 2020. The website to buy points, and find out more, is here.
The main Hilton Honors promotion this Autumn, ‘Double Points’ (click here to register), offers you double Hilton Honors points on every stay you make before 31st December.
To give credit to Hilton, it is very straightforward. All hotels are taking part and there is no minimum stay requirement.
The BA / Hilton promotion details can be found here – you need to register. You will receive triple Avios on every stay until the 30th January 2018.
As a reminder, this is how Hilton Honors works:
If you choose ‘points and points’ from your stays, you earn 10 base points and 5 Hilton Honors bonus points per $1 spent
If you choose ‘points and miles’, you earn 10 base points and 1 British Airways Avios per $1 spent
Under this promotion you would earn 3 Avios per $1 spent instead of 1 per $1.
There is an extra bonus on top ….
Based on the last few times this offer has run, anyone who selects ‘points and miles’ and who registers for BOTH ‘Double Points’ and ‘triple Avios’ will receive both!
This means that you should get 20 base points and 3 Avios per $1 spent on stays between now and the end of the year.
Arguably, if you value an Avios point at a conservative 0.75p and a Hilton point at 0.3p, ‘Triple Avios’ is the way to go.
Under ‘Double Up’, you receive 25 Hilton points per $1 worth 7.5p
Under ‘Triple Avios’, you will receive 20 Hilton points per $1 plus 3 Avios worth 8.25p
This does assume that you get double base points with ‘Points and Miles’ by registering for both offers.
Two more things to note …..
The registration page for triple Avios refers to a list of non-participating hotels. The link is not a link, however, so it isn’t clear if such a list actually exists or not.
Secondly, the rules say “Offer available for new bookings made between 15 October ….”. Existing bookings may not count and, for safety, you may want to stick with ‘points and points’. (The comments suggest that Hilton is not actually applying this rule.)
Remember that you MUST register for these offers.
If you haven’t already registered for it, the registration link for the main ‘Double Points’ promotion is here.
PS. The picture above is the new Hilton Paris Opera we reviewed here.
