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.
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.
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.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (May 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.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 120,000 Hilton Honors points, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
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.
