Given that we’ve seen a lot of online accounts being hacked lately, the loyalty programs are taking account security much more seriously.
In mid-February, Hilton announced that they’d offer 1,000 bonus points for changing your HHonors account password by March 8, 2015. Apparently they were having “issues” with the promotion at the time, so had to postpone it by several weeks. Odd, I know!
Several weeks later the promo finally went live, whereby it was possible to earn 1,000 HHonors bonus points for changing your HHonors password by March 25, 2015.
It’s worth noting that this promotion has now been extended even further. All you need to do is change your HHonors password by April 10, 2015 to earn 1,000 bonus HHonors points:
If you change your password between March 10 and April 10, 2015, you will receive the 1,000 Bonus Points. We are committed to getting points posted to your account as soon as possible, if you do not see your points after six to eight weeks please connect with us. Please see the Terms & Conditions of the 1,000 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points offer in answer thirteen below.
As you can see above, the bonus points should post within six to eight weeks of when you change your password.
As a reminder, to change your password simply log into your Hilton HHonors account. Then at the bottom left of the page click on “Personal Information.”
Then on the next page click on “Change Password” to update your password.
It’s that easy!
Do keep in mind that you don’t get the 1,000 bonus points if you changed your password before March 10. So if you changed your password before then you’ll want to do it again, so that you actually get the points.
