UPDATE – DECEMBER 2022: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 ‘Double Your Stay’ promotion which runs until 31st December 2022. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
Hilton is also running a separate ‘Double Elite Nights’ promotion – click here for our article – which also runs until 31st December 2022. You can register for the offer by clicking here. You can register for both promotions and both will credit on the same stay.
Last week we wrote about a new Hilton Honors mini-promotion which offers you 7,500 bonus Hilton Honors points from your next two stays before the end of January 2020.
There was a catch – overnight, between our article being written and the article going live, something happened and existing members were unable to register.
This has now been changed. Existing members can now register – I did it on Friday for my wife and I:
You can register here.
You will receive:
2,500 Hilton Honors points with your next stay before 31 January 2020
5,000 Hilton Honors points with your 2nd stay before 31 January 2020
This is a slightly odd promotion. Hilton is openly advertising it on social media. And yet, the small print says that you should have received an invitation by email in order to register …..
I would register regardless. The worst that can happen is that you don’t get the points, although – once registered – it will show up under your list of active promotions under ‘My Offers’ as you can see from my account (click to enlarge):
People who registered last week, before registration stopped working, HAVE been receiving the points on stays in the last few days.
I value a Hilton Honors point at 0.33p, so you are looking at £25-worth of bonus points across your next two stays. This is on top of your standard base points and the current ‘double points’ bonus, which makes the whole thing pretty lucrative.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (December 2022)
There are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses.
Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card? It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Premium and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
Did you know that the Virgin Atlantic credit cards are a great way of earning Hilton Honors points? Two Virgin Points can be converted into three Hilton Honors points.
