Hilton already has their best promotion of the year at the moment, as they’re offering triple HHonors base points for stays booked through Hilton’s app through the end of the year.
HHonors members ordinarily earn 10 base points per dollar spent, so that means through Hilton’s current global promotion they’re earning an additional 20 points per dollar spent through. Then you can add in all the other bonus points members can earn, including additional points for choosing Points & Points as your earning preference, elite bonus points, and bonus points for using a credit card that rewards hotel spend.
Well, Hilton has just announced an additional promotion that will earn HHonors members an additional 5,000 bonus points per eligible stay in the coming months, which is incredible.
HHonors members can earn 5,000 bonus points when booking a stay with a Visa credit card through the Hilton HHonors app. The promotion is valid for stays between November 2, 2016, and January 31, 2017, and registration is required.
This new promotion can be stacked with Hilton’s current triple points promotion, and it can be repeated, meaning you can earn the 5,000 bonus points as often as you’d like. Bonus points through this promotion should post 6-8 weeks after the completion of an eligible stay. Only eligible stays qualify for this promotion, so that excludes award stays and other non-eligible rates.
I value Hilton HHonors points at ~0.4 cents each, so to me this promotion is worth an additional ~$20 return per stay, but of course that doesn’t factor in all the other bonus points you can earn.
Hilton has even released a new ad about this promotion, starring Judy Greer:
The full terms of the promotion are as follows:
Offer is valid from November 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017 for Visa® cardholders who are also Hilton HHonors Members who 1) register for the promotion at HiltonHHonors.com/VisaBonus; 2) download the HHonors mobile application to the cardholder’s mobile device; 3) book a stay through the HHonors mobile application; and 4) pay for the completed stay between November 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017 (“Promotional Period”) with any Visa card will receive 5,000 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points per eligible stay. Bonus Points earned on Base Points do not count toward Elite tier qualification. Please allow six to eight weeks from completion of the eligible stay for Bonus Points to appear in your Hilton HHonors™ account. This offer may not be combined with other select promotions, offer or discounts and is not valid for groups. Blackout dates, early departure fees, and deposit and cancellation restrictions may apply and vary by hotel, please see individual property for details.
So be sure to register, book all your stays through the Hilton HHonors App, and pay with a Visa card (consider using a card like the Citi® Hilton HHonors Reserve Card or Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature Card), so you can earn 5,000 bonus points per stay.
This is a really great promotion, especially for those who frequently make short, inexpensive stays.
