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.

You get a 100% bonus when you buy Hilton Honors points before 22nd November 2022. Click here to buy.

Hilton Honors has extended its Spring promotion, Points Unlimitedwhich 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.

    Did the pilot forget to put the handbrake on?

    • Alex W says:

      The parking brakes require hydraulic power to remain applied to the aircraft. Or for 787, the brakes may be electrically powered. Also, if the brakes are left on they can seize. Usually chocks are effective for parking, but if the wind is outside limits then the aircraft has to be tied down.

  • Tom says:

    Most Hiltons here are closed.

    No plans to stay at one any time soon.

    • The Original David says:

      Good job it’s a global promotion then, hey? I’m not a Hilton man, but I have 4 nights with Accor and IHG coming up over the next couple of weeks. I’d like to see more hotel promos please!

  • Crafty says:

    These Hilton offers are much better when stacked with the regular Amex £50 off… come on Brighton! 🙂

  • Ian M says:

    “Hilton Honors extends its double points promotion” What double points offer?

  • JOHN MATRIX says:

    that’s no double points promo

  • Stuart H says:

    Has anyone had their hertz points expiry date extended due to covid… And is there any way to cash out to airline miles as this seems to be gone on their website. Thanks

    • Rob says:

      Have you tried the US website? Airline transfers went from the UK site years ago for some odd reason but the US site was working fine.

      • stuart h says:

        Thanks Rob but unfortunately it’s the same on the US site, no way to transfer any to any programs, hertz rental seems to be the only way to use them

    • Lady London says:

      pretty sure i saw about two weeks ago hertz in serious financial diffuculty, seen in semi financial press

    • Chrisasaurus says:

      It looks depressingly as though they all have about a two week expiration date anyway… and I have a huge balance

  • paul says:

    Any word on Hilton extending their covid policy beyond the end of June for bookings made long before this Covid 19 kicked off. I have a booking in July I would like to have refunded

    • John says:

      I think it remains to be seen whether it will be possible to travel by then.

  • Greenpen says:

    The aeroplane seems to be “flying” into the wind rather than being pushed by it. Habit I’d guess!
