2,500 HHonors Bonus Points Per December Stay

Hilton has just announced an additional promotion valid for stays at their US properties this December.

Through this promotion you can earn 2,500 HHonors bonus points for each Hilton stay lasting a minimum of two nights in the US between December 1 and December 31, 2015. Registration is required prior to check-out of your first eligible stay, and all properties are participating.

This promotion is in addition to Hilton’s global fourth quarter promotion, entitled “Triple Your Trip.”

Through that promotion you can earn double points for weekday stays (Monday through Thursday nights) and triple points for weekend stays (Friday through Sunday nights). Best of all, all properties are participating in that promotion as well.

The full terms of the promotion are as follows:

*Offer subject to availability at participating U.S. hotels and resorts in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio for stays completed between December 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015. Offer requires a 2 night minimum length of stay.  Hilton HHonors™ members must first register at HHonors.com/HolidayBonus prior to check-out of your first stay within the Promotion Period. Registered HHonors members will earn 2,500 HHonors Bonus Points per stay during the Promotion Period. A “stay” is defined as the total number of consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, whether or not a guest checks out and checks back in again. Registered HHonors members will only receive Bonus Points for stays completed during the Promotion Period regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the Promotion Period ends. Please allow six to eight weeks from completion of your stay for points to appear in your HHonors account. Offer subject to availability at participating hotels and cannot be combined with other select offers and rates.

Bottom line

I value Hilton points at ~0.4 cents each, so to me the 2,500 points are worth $10. That’s not a huge return in and of itself, though in conjunction with their global fourth quarter promotion, you’re looking at a pretty nice return for Hilton stays in December.

Kudos to Hilton for really ramping up their promotions this year. Earlier in the year they said they’d offer fewer global promotions than before, so they’ve really been under promising and over delivering. I’ve been extremely impressed by them!

  1. My last night is on Dec 31 with a checkout on Jan 1, 2016. Does this mean I am not able to get the bonus?

  2. Eduardo — you will,or you definitely should, get the bonus points because your 12/31/15 night will/should count.

  3. @Lucky sez: “I value Hilton points at ~0.4 cents each, so to me the 2,500 points are worth $10.”

    How silly is the blogger’s constant use of loyalty points “valuations” to estimate their hard cash value? This silly:

    How much would one have to spend at a Hilton property to earn 2,500? $250 for a GM. So why isn’t that the monetary of “value” these 2500 bonus points? The beauty of it is that you do not have to spend any money to earn them. They are on top of any money that you spend anyway.

    If you spend $10 at any Hilton property (e.g. on incidentals), all you’d get would be 100 HH points!

    From my perspective, the points are worth $250 that I did not have to spend 😉

    G’day!

  4. Also, how silly is the bloggers’ constant use of their loyalty point “valuations” [which is are actually estimates of the REDEMPTION “value”] to estimate their hard cash value? This silly:

    How much would one have to spend at a Hilton property to earn 2,500? $250 for a GM. One would have to spend the same amount on the Citi Reserve at a Hilton property to earn 2,500 HH points (~$200 on the AMEX Surpass). In fact, one would have to spend even more on other non-hotel purchases with these co-branded card to earn 2,500 HH points! The beauty of getting the bonus points through this offer is that one does not even have to spend any additional money to earn them. They are on top of any money that you would spend, anyway (they would also be on top of bonus points earned for paying one’s folio with a co-brand card, as well as points from the ongoing “double/triple” bonus promo). It is not at all a cliche that HH points are easy to earn. That is why just looking at and then bitching about the large NUMERICAL costs of Hilton awards in HH points, which are very easy to earn, is also very silly…

    If you spent $5 or $10 at any Hilton property (e.g. on incidentals), all you’d get would be 50 or 100 HH points, not 2,500 points!

    From my perspective, since I earn most of my HH points through revenue stays, the points for this offer are worth $250 that I won’t have to spend!

    G’day!
