REGISTER NOW – Hilton launches new ‘double points’ promotion for May to September

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Hilton Honors has just launched its new Summer promotion which is now open for registration.

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

You will earn DOUBLE Hilton Honors base points for every stay between 1st May and 9th September.

There is no cap to what you can earn and there are no minimum stay requirements.  It really couldn’t be simpler.  You will earn 10 base points per $1 spent, plus an additional 10 promotional points, plus any status bonus.

You can register for the offer here.

Hilton Honors double points Summer 2018

There is no small print except that you need to register in advance via the Hilton website:

There is no minimum stay requirement

Existing bookings still count

All Hilton Family properties (Hilton, Hampton, Curio, Waldorf-Astoria, Conrad etc) are taking part – there is no list of non-participating hotels – except for Hampton properties in China

Remember that the Home2 Suites and Tru brands earn a lower 5 base points per $1.

Hilton is still offering a status match

If you have top tier status with another hotel programme, Hilton Honors will give you a 90 day free trial of Hilton Diamond or Gold status.  You can request a status match here.

You need to supply a screenshot showing your top tier status in another programme plus a screenshot showing a paid stay in the previous 12 months.

If you complete eight stays (note it is stays, not nights) during the 90 days you will keep your Diamond status until 31st March 2020.  If you only manage four stays you will receive Gold status until 31st March 2020.

Note that the status match website still says that you will be matched to March 2019.  People who have done this recently confirm they are getting matched to March 2020.

Conclusion

‘Double base points’ 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.

Whether you move your business to Hilton may depend on your new IHG Accelerate target – see my recent article for details on that.

    A stupid question, if I’m Diamond already (gained from status match last year), can I do the status match again this year? Thanks.

    • Have a look at my response tho Gareth question as 07.01 Caleb but excuse the typos which I hope you can work out.

  2. Jovanna says:

    Any prospect of a worldwide sale in the next month or so?

  3. Am I right to assume only stays only after matching will trigger the 8 stays requirement?

    • Yes because there is a 90 day window from acceptance

      • KBuffett says:

        If I already have 5 stays, and then apply for a status match, can I only compete another 3 stays as long as all stays are within 90 days?
