Hilton Honors has just launched its new Spring and Summer promotion which is now open for registration.

The promotion is called ‘More Nights, More Points’.

To give Hilton credit, it is very straightforward with virtually no small print.

You will earn DOUBLE Hilton Honors base points for every 1-2 night stay between 2nd May and 5th September.

Stay for 3+ nights and you will earn triple base points.

Hilton Summer promotion

There is NO ‘starting with your second stay’ rule.  You get double or triple points from your first stay during the promotional period.

For most brands, you will earn 10 base points per $1 spent, plus an additional 10 or 20 promotional points plus any status bonus.

Given that I value a Hilton Honors point at around 0.33p, you are getting a good return on your spending here.  20 points per $1 is an 8.5% rebate and that is before you add in any status bonus. A Diamond would be getting 12.8% back.

Stay for 3+ nights and you’re getting 12.8% back before status bonuses, so 17% back as a Diamond member.

The offer is refreshingly free of small print

There is not much small print except that you need to register in advance via the Hilton website here

Hilton Honors double points power up offer 2021

Apart from that, all is good:

  • 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

Remember that the Home2 Suites and Tru brands earn a lower 5 base points per $1.

Register for ‘More Nights, More Points’ now

Hilton’s new ‘double and triple base points’ is a decent offer, especially for people doing longer, more expensive stays.

You should make sure you register here if you have any Hilton stays coming up over the next four months.

Even without Hilton Honors status, you will be earning 20 or 30 points (which I value at 6.6p or 10p) per $1.  This is an 8.5% or 12.8% rebate on your spending.  Anyone with Hilton status will do even better.

Even if you don’t have any stays planned, it is worth registering just in case – a lot can happen between now and 5th September.

Don’t forget the current American Express cashback offer

Remember that American Express is currently offering £50 cashback on £200 of Hilton stays at selected hotels by 30th June. The cashback deal would double up with this and provide an even greater return.

You can sign up for ‘More Nights, More Points’ here.

  • Can says:

    Is it just me or this is exceptionally generous?

    • John says:

      It feels like there’s been double points every May to December for most of the last 5+ years

      Triple points for everyone is more generous than usual, to be specific 50% more generous for non status members, but there was also a devaluation recently where more than a few properties increased points prices by 50%

      • Can says:

        Double points yes, but triple not that often. If I did the math right, my summer vacation will give me a free night in Conrad Maldives as a diamond. I can salut that

    • Andrew J says:

      Depending on the cost of your stay, the current 2500 bonus points per stay was more generous – stay at a £70 airport hotel and it was very good.

      • ianM says:

        Only for one night stays

        • Andrew J says:

          One tends to only stay at airport hotels for one night.

          • ianM says:

            I didn’t realise airport hotels were a special category. I thought you were referring to the price.

          • David says:

            He was, he’s just a bit too contrary.

          • Andrew J says:

            I’ll speak for myself thanks David. I was referring to airport hotels where the price is low and you’re likely to only stay for one night being a good deal under the 2500 points offer.

          • ianM says:

            One wishes airport hotels were only 70 quid!

          • Rob says:

            Four star Heathrow hotels are generally £70ish at the moment. Even the Renaissance was, I think, £74 when I was looking at options recently. My review stays in recent weeks have been in the £60-£80 range.

          • Andrew J says:

            Hilton at Hatton Cross is always that price when I book.

  • Laurence says:

    What happens if my 7 night stay starts on 1st May?

    • Rob says:

      The T&C explain.

    • Laurence says:

      If I check-in before May 2, 2022, or check-out after September 5, 2022, do I still earn credit for that stay?
      Registered members checking in before May 2, 2022 will receive credit for their stay if the stay is completed on or after May 2, 2022 and prior to or on September 5, 2022. If you start a stay in the middle of the promotion period and check-out after September 5, 2022 you will not receive the bonus.

    • Danyal says:

      You’ll still get the bonus. The terms state that as long as the stay is completed during the promo period, you will be eligible.

  • Klaus says:

    I don’t suppose the extra points count towards status, right?

    • Klaus says:

      Found it and as expected they don’t

      “Moreover, Bonus Points do not count toward elite tier qualification.”

  • zio says:

    Do you earn base points (and therefore bonus points) on cash+points Hilton bookings?

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      Yes. All billable spend earns base points; including incidental spend on reward stays.

  • tony says:

    I seem to recall that about a decade back, Hilton ran a deal like this. Had a 5 night stay in the Sa Torre with the family. Think I then used the resulting points for a few nights in the Conrad Hong Kong – and picked up Gold status on the spend, too!

  • HH says:

    Damn, this would have been really valuable for my $8k Conrad Maldives spend last month 😕 oh well, win some lose some.

    • John says:

      Well the Hilton promo in Jan to April tends to be less lucrative than May to Dec for expensive stays, so keep this in mind for future bookings

    • Nick says:

      Feel your pain. I had a stay at the Waldorf Astoria in the Maldives in Jan.

  • Lee says:

    I have 3 separate 1 night bookings, price has gone up a lot so not wise to cancel then rebook as 1 stay. Will I get bonus?

    • Rob says:

      Yes, existing bookings are fine.

    • John says:

      They should get merged into one stay for points purposes

    • RM84 says:

      Last year I had two separate bookings totalling three nights when they were running a similar promotion, and despite merging bills, the triple points didn’t calculate correctly. However, I contacted Hilton Honors and they rectified it promptly.
