Earn TRIPLE Avios on Hilton stays this Autumn – register now

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners 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.

I wrote about ‘Double Points’ in detail here.

To give credit to Hilton, it is very straightforward.  All hotels are taking part and there is no minimum stay requirement.

If you are not totally focused on Hilton Honors points, British Airways Executive Club and Hilton Honors have launched a new mileage deal for the Autumn which offers an alternative deal.

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.

You can register for the new triple Avios promotion here.

If you haven’t already registered for it, the registration link for the main ‘Double Points’ promotion is here.

  1. OT Trying to plan a diamond status match with hilton. Does anyone know if the 90 days period is from the time of application or the time they process the status match ?

  2. OT – I’m booking a return Heathrow Express ticket for £37 and it says there’s a promotion for 20 avios per £1 spent. However when I get to the checkout page it states that avios to be rewarded is 200 avios only? Can someone clarify T&Cs maybe? i tried reading but it doesn’t seem to say anything regarding a lower reward other than child fares not being applicable.

    • Stevie G says:

      In the past, despite also getting that message, the double Avios do post in two hits. It’ll be ok.

  3. hotaeke says:

    [Semi-OT] Is it possible to generate two (mine and hers) Hilton vouchers (through the Barclaycard) and use them for a single booking? I understand that if the Hilton search shows a Standard Room Reward option for my desired dates it means that I can use my vouchers on those dates? Thanks for your help, guys!

    • Genghis says:

      1) yes on separate cards. You make one booking, your partner makes another booking. Email hotel to link bookings.
      2) yes

      • hotaeke says:

        Thanks for taking the time to reply Genghis. Let’s complicate the scenario a little bit more. On a 5 day stay would I be able to…
        – Day 1: Single booking to use my Barclaycard voucher
        – Day 2: Single booking to use her Barclaycard voucher
        – Day 3: Single booking for a night using my HHonors points
        – Day 4: Pay cash
        – Day 5: Pay cash
        And then call them to link all the bookings? Would this make sense from a voucher/money/points usage perspective?

        • Beware if you mix redemptions and cash you might not get the points for the cash nights. It’s in the Hilton t&C’s. So if you want the points to credit to your account, put the preceding night as a redemption from her account then the following cash nights booked using your account.

        • Wally1976 says:

          I’m planning something similar – Thursday night on Honors points and Fri/Sat nights on vouchers from the credit cards. Remember the Barclaycard vouchers can only be used on Fri/Sat/Sun night stays.

    • Yes we did exactly that for my 12 night Maldives trip earlier this year, awesome way of using them.

      The Conrad Rangali management kindly allowed us to use my Gold benefits for the entire stay despite my wife only being Silver.

    Does anyone know if the Amex ‘spend £250 or more, earn 3000 MR points’ offer, covers cumulative spend? Also, does an advance payment count, as the conditions say it’s meant to be at checkout. Thanks.

  5. Can’t tell from the language or ts & cs, does this mean staying on new years eve until new years day counts for the triple avios or not?

  6. Sort of OT: Now that Happy Mondays has left us, any remaining good tricks for good value London hotel rooms on a Saturday night? Need something end November, flexible on location. Have points with Hilton, Carlson and IHG but no good deals that I could see on any of them.

  7. Where would the current ‘get 500 extra points’ for booking using the app fit in?

  8. Get an error on the registration page.

  9. I don’t think it’s as simple as comparing 5hh points vs 3 avios. In the past after registering for avios but sticking with points + points you get extra points on lieu of avios.

    In fact My stay on 17th Oct booked before the promo but on p+p has posted as

    Base points 1547 0. 0
    HH Double up 0 1547 0
    Ba Triple Avios 0 1547 0
    My way bonus 0 1000 0
    50% bonus 0 773 0
    Diamond 50% 0 773 0
    App booking 0 500 0

    I’ve had this on previous avios promos but don’t know if it always happens.

    Still getting an error on the registration page. Even using the BA registration link. Must be something at Hilton’s end.

    Oops, keep trying, it eventually worked.
