Hilton Honors has extended its ‘double points’ Summer promotion which is open for registration here.
The offer was due to end on 31st August but has been extended to 9th September, to take in the Labor Day holiday weekend in the US.
If you haven’t already registered, 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.
There is no small print except that you need to register in advance via the Hilton website (which has not been changed yet to reflect the 9th September extension):
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.
