REGISTER NOW: Hilton Honors launches new bonus points promo to 31st December

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Hilton Honors has just launched its new Autumn promotion which is now open for registration.

The promotion is called ‘Double Your Stay’.

It is a twist on the usual Hilton offer. The chain usually offers either double points (good for expensive stays) or 2,000 bonus points (good for short cheap stays). This time, it is offering both!

Hilton Honors Double Your Stay promotion

You will earn DOUBLE Hilton Honors base points for every stay between 6th September and 31st December.

Check out on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and you’ll receive an extra 2,000 Hilton Honors points on top.

There is NO ‘starting with your second stay’ rule.  You get bonus 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.

The extra 2,000 bonus points, assuming you check out on a midweek day, are worth an extra £6.66 in our book. This could add anything from 10% to 1% to the value of your bonus, depeding on what you spend.

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

This new offer starts immediately after the current offer ends on 5th September so you can be sure of a bonus on every Hilton stay between now and the year end.

Hilton Honors Double Your Stay promotion

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
  • Reward bookings count, which means you’ll get a guaranteed 2,000 points per stay rebate, even if you have £0 incidental spend, if you check out on a weekday

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

Register for ‘Double Your Stay’ now

Hilton’s new ‘Double Your Stay’ promotion is a decent offer with something for everyone. All guests receive double points whilst those checking out during the week receive an extra 2,000 points on top.

The real winners are those doing cheap one-night Hampton Inn stays midweek, when you could be looking at a return of almost 20%. Anyone spending a large sum on a longer stay won’t be complaining about double points either.

You should make sure you register if you have any Hilton stays coming up over the next four months. Even if you don’t have any stays planned, it is worth registering just in case – a lot can happen between now and 31st December.

Let’s see if any new American Express / Hilton cashback offers come along which can be stacked with this.

You can sign up for ‘Double Your Stay’ here.

PS. If you have any Hilton stays before this new offer starts on 6th September, you haven’t missed out. You can register for the current 2x / 3x bonus offer by clicking here.

    How does it work for reward stays on double points?

    Do you get any HH points for a reward stay? I have 7 nights next month

    • Andrew J says:

      No points at all for rewards stays.

    • Nick says:

      No, you don’t receive HH points for reward stays (using points only). You do receive HH points on the money portion only of ‘Points & Money’ reward stays though, should that be the case.

  • Blenz101 says:

    Another winner here could be anybody who uses Hilton workspaces for day use.

    Here in Dubai rates can often be under 100 AED / £20 at some properties. I’ve really enjoyed working in these spaces as all the Dubai properties in any brand still have an outdoor pool, fitness rooms and as a Diamond I’m consistently getting a welcome gift and card sent to the room.

  • Scottpat78 says:

    Thanks for the heads up. I have 8 stays / 43 nights booked in Hilton’s from Sept through Dec. As a diamond I’m assuming this will mean triple points effectively plus the bonus 2K when applicable?

  • Ian M says:

    What happens with stays that overlap the 2 promotions? I’ve got a booking from 4th – 9th September.

    • Mikel says:

      Same here…….5th to 8th for me. Do I need to register for the 2 offers ?

      • DevonDiamond says:

        Based on offer in place at check out

        • janolabs says:

          What if someone’s doing an expensive Maldives stay e.g. 20Dec-2Jan? If there isn’t a new offer early Jan, and given the check out date matters, they would not get any bonus. Is there an option to ‘split’ the stay, ‘check out’ on the 31st, settle the bill up until then and have a separate mini-stay 31Dec-2Jan on paper? Thanks!

          • John says:

            Hilton’s system automatically joins up consecutive stays at the same property from experience. So even if you physically checkout and leave (as you’re not allowed to check into the second room), they treat it as one booking.
            Happened to me last Christmas/NYE in Cambridge – I was enjoying myself so extended the stay with a second booking, with the result that for the entire period (5 nights?) I learned less points than the initial 2 nights due to checkout falling outside the bonus period. Yes, they did claw the points back from me after initially awarding them.
            If you split the booking, make sure the second one is on someone else’s number.

          • JohnG says:

            Slight addition to Janolabs answer which is correct. You could if it really made a difference arrange with the hotel for the last two nights to be a separate booking either not linked to an account or linked to another account; that way the linking behaviour Janolabs mentions doesn’t matter. My wife and I have done stays where we both booked part quite a few times and it’s never been an issue.

      • RussellH says:

        I would register for both. Cannot do any harm

        I have only been in this position once, but got both the bonus for the final day of the earlier promotion – the day I checked in – and the following day, when I checked out.

        Obviously IT not working well at the time, as it was a points+cash stay, and the basis points were calculated as if it had been cash only.

  • Robert says:

    Any news or expectations on a Bonvoy promo launching soon? Just about to pull the trigger on our big Dubai trip next month, hopefully existing bookings will also count like they do in this article.

    • YC says:

      Bonvoy global offers always seem to be not as generous as other schemes but if launched, existing bookings do normally count

    • Gordon says:

      Dubai in September 🥵

  • Captain says:

    I have a 3-night stay coming up in mid-September which I booked under the Hilton Impressario rates, which also comes with double HH points.
    https://www.headforpoints.com/2022/05/16/hilton-third-night-free-offer/

    If I sign up for this latest promotion, will I get double x double i.e. 4x the base points, or are they not cumulative with other offers? T&C suggests it can’t combine with other select offers, but curious if anyone had had gone through before.

  • marcw says:

    Isn’t x2 points the de-facto earning at Hilton?

  • His Holyness says:

    Fascinating to see a promo targeting weekday nights. Just shows you how weak the biz travel is.

    • Brian78 says:

      With inflation already double digits, it makes sense. Companies need to make any savings they can and any non business critical travel (which much of business travel is) is usually the first thing to be cut

    • John says:

      Yet the actual room rates are still higher than ever, 2000 extra points isn’t going to make anyone extend a 10-night stay that ends on a Sunday for one extra night, however it might encourage some people to cut short a stay to leave on Friday and stay somewhere else for the final night
