One of the more interesting Clubcard Boost redemptions is for UK Hilton Hotels. You can see details on this page of the Clubcard website.
Tesco and Hilton have made some positive changes to this redemption over the years which improved it:
you no longer have to book for at least two nights
you can now book certain hotels during the week, if that particular hotel chooses to participate
all Hilton brands (Hampton, Conrad etc) now participate – not just the main Hilton brand
These are all good changes.
There are other positive features about this deal:
rooms always include breakfast
all room categories are included, so if you need a bigger room or a suite then you can often book one, as long as you have enough Clubcard points
Recently there has been a further positive change – Tesco and Hilton have launched a dedicated website (click here) for booking rooms online.
In the past you had to ring the call centre, which was time consuming and – if you had a variety of hotels and dates to choose from – slow. Looking at reports on the Clubcard site, you would also receive a hard sell to book a room for cash if no redemptions were available.
How to exchange your Clubcard points
You can exchange your Clubcard points on this website. £2.50 in Clubcard points with give you £7.50 to spend at Hilton Hotels UK & Ireland. Your tokens are emailed to you within 30 minutes and can then be used on the Tesco / Hilton booking website.
The tokens are valid for 6 months from the day you redeem. Bookings must be made up to four days in advance.
Are Hilton Hotels a good way to spend your Clubcard points?
It’s not bad as you receive 300% of the face value of your vouchers.
But note that the price charged is the cancellable bed and breakfast rate. However, the booking you make will not be cancellable. This means that you are not getting a true 3 x face value redemption with Hilton because you should be comparing it with the price of a non-cancellable bed and breakfast rate.
Therefore it depends on the difference between the cheapest non-cancellable and cancellable rate that the hotel is offering at the time whether or not Hilton Hotels is a good way to spend your Clubcard points.
