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 Honors has extended its Spring promotion, Points Unlimited, which you can register for here.
The original plan was that you would earn 2,000 bonus Hilton Honors points for every stay between 6th January and 3rd May.
Even better, you would earn an additional 10,000 bonus Hilton Honors points for every TEN nights you complete.
Hilton has extended the closing date substantially. Points Unlimited will now run until 7th September.
There is no cap to what you can earn and there are no minimum stay requirements. The bonus should also trigger on reward stays given how similar promotions have worked in the past.
This promotion was always best suited to people doing shorter, cheaper stays. I tend to value a Hilton point at 0.33p so you’d be getting £6.60 of points per stay. This is a good return for a £50 one-night visit and a bad result on a 9-night £3,000 stay.
You can register for the offer here if you haven’t already done so.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (October 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 Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
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. The Virgin Atlantic cards are the only Visa or Mastercard products in the UK which can indirectly earn Hilton Honors points. You can apply here.
You can also earn Hilton Honors points indirectly with:
- American Express Gold (20,000 bonus Amex points)

and for small business owners:

The conversion rate from American Express to Hilton points is 1:2.
