On top of that you can earn 5,000 bonus points per stay when you pay with a Visa, even if it’s an award stay (as long as there are some incidentals on your folio). This promotion is valid through January 31, 2017, and registration is required for it as well.
Anyway, I’ve just been informed that Hilton is extending their global triple points promotion through January 31, 2017, meaning both the triple points and 5,000 point Visa promotion now expire the same day.
While there are aspects of Hilton HHonors I don’t love, there’s no denying that the rate at which you can accrue points with them is very good.
Members ordinarily earn 10 base points per dollar spent, plus an additional five points if they choose Points & Points as their earnings preference (which most people should be doing). When you factor in the triple base points and 5,000 bonus points, that means you’re earning 35 Hilton points per dollar spent, plus 5,000 bonus points per stay.
Then if you’re a Diamond member you earn an additional five points per dollar, and if you’re paying with a card like the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card, you earn an additional 10 points per dollar.
That means members like me are earning a total of 50 HHonors points per dollar spent, plus 5,000 bonus points per stay. That’s pretty fantastic, especially since all properties are participating in both of these promotions.
Rack up points quickly to redeem at properties like the Conrad Koh Samui
It’s great to hear that Hilton will be extending this promotion through January 31, 2017, meaning you can earn triple points plus 5,000 bonus points per stay. They haven’t yet publicly updated the promotion page with this information, but will do so this week. If you’ve already registered for the promotion, there’s no need to register again.
