Hilton HHonors has really stepped up their game the past year or so. I’ve been very impressed, both by their transparency, and also by their promotions.

Through January 31, 2017, Hilton is offering two compelling promotions that can be stacked, which were launched last year:

Well, Hilton HHonors has now shared the details of their first new promotion of 2017.

Hilton’s 2K Every Day Promotion details

The new Hilton HHonors “2K Every Day Promotion” is as straightforward as it gets:

  • Earn 2,000 bonus points per night, every day at all HHonors properties worldwide
  • Valid for stays between February 1 and April 30, 2017
  • There are no minimum stay requirements, and no maximum to how many points you can earn

A registration page will be coming soon, which I’ll be sure to share.

I value HHonors points at ~0.4 cents each, so to me 2,000 bonus points per night is like an extra return of $8 per night. That’s not half bad, especially when you consider it applies to all hotels.

This is all in addition to the points you usually earn for a stay, and Hilton has among the best earnings rates of any hotel chain for stays.

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). That means base members earn 15 points per dollar spent. This doesn’t include:

  • An additional 2.5 points per dollar for being a Gold member, or 5 points per dollar for being a Diamond member
  • The points you earn for paying for your stay, like an extra 10 points per dollar for paying with the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card

So a Diamond member paying with the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card would be earning 30 points per dollar spent, plus 2,000 points per night. Obviously the return on spend will vary depending on whether your nightly rates average $70 per night or $500 per night, but I’d say that’s pretty solid.

Bottom line

Kudos to Hilton HHonors for offering such a straightforward promotion. There’s no gap between Hilton’s global promotions, all hotels are participating, and there’s no limit on how many points you can earn. Ultimately it’s not going to be as rewarding for short stays as Hilton’s previous promotion, but I wasn’t expecting another promotion like that right away.

  1. Looks to me like this IS the Precursor to another massive devaluation.

    Whenever a company hands out points with abandon you can guess what is coming up.
    Good thing I just used up all of my Hilton points. Phew!

  2. This is way worse. I had a $1200 stay coming up. Double points would have been great. I also think Hilton earning without a promo is actually quite weak given how usleless the points are.

  3. Let B = total spend/stay
    and x = the total number of nights for the stay

    Total haul = B +0.5B + 0.5B+ 1.2B + 2,000*x + 1000 + 500 = 3.2B + 2,000*x + 1,500

    That is, a HH Diamond will haul in

    32HH/$ + 2,000*x + 1,500

    I have a 5-night stay booked at Hilton Hawai’ian Village during the promo perios @ $352/night (a heavily discounted rate for an ocean front room in the Rainbow Tower) for $1,760 for the stay. My haul will beL

    32 * 1,760 + 2,000*5 + 1,500 = 67,820

    excluding incidentals and taxes on the AMEX Surpass, which also earn points. I am looking at a 70+K haul for the stay.

    This promo is good for people who do extended and relatively pricey stays. Short stays won’t net very many promo points unless it’s at a top-end hotel. This, this is not as good as the current 2x/3x promo, but it is nothing to sneeze at since the “base earning” for elites is already quite high. The promo points are simply icing on the cake…

  4. I believe the Hilton Honors Surpass Credit Card from American Express earns 12 points per dollar spend at Hilton, which is better than the Citi Hilton Honors Reserve Card paying 10 points per dollar.

  5. The talk of “devaluation” is totally misguided. Hilton has been offering lucrative targeted and quarterly promos with not a single property opting out for almost 2 years now. Where is the “devaluation”. BTW, every program devalues their points, and HHonors 2013 “thermonuclear devaluation” that may be at the root of the talks of devaluation was not at all as bad as what self-anointed travel gurus had convinced their sycophants it was!

  6. @stvr — If @Lucky’s intel is correct, then it will be 2K per night; $2K per stay would be laughable although that’s what one-nighters would get you.

  7. Thank God.. I have a 10 day stay coming up starting 1/30 and I was worried about no promo as of 2/1.
    So this is a better promotion for those spending less than 200 a night (and can’t book on app). Seems not too smart to cut off incentive for spending more $!

  8. dmodemd sez “So this is a better promotion for those spending less than 200 a night.”

    I am not sure why that is the case. The promo is independent of how much one spends a night. The promo points are simply on top of those that one would have earned anyway. The claim that the promo is better for those spending less than $200/night sounds to me like looking a gift horse in the mouth! The only determinant of how many points one would earn from the promo is the length of the stay, meaning that one will also earn points on rewards stays, which would yield the highest return, especially on extended stays. However, if one was going to do an extended pricey revenue stays ANYWAY, the promo is till just as good in ABSOLUTE terms!

  9. UA-NYC — How predictably stupid. Do you know where I am going to spend 5 nights with the 5th night free during my 2017 Year-End Asian Escapade? I will tell ya: Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, which is as “aspirational” as any major chain can offer.

    In fact, it was not at all hard to find high-end Hilton properties where to burn the points, meaning that anyone who makes a statement like the one you made, with the following top-end hotels among many to choose from, should hide and never show their face ever again. But with you, I will not hold my breath because based on that metric you would already have done us all a favor a disappeared a long time ago. Pick a destination:

    G’day!

  10. @JR — Why don’t you enlighten us about the purport lie(s) that DCS has told and let’s see who is the real liar (read: idiot, since only an idiot would not only lie while calling someone a liar, but would also keep making fact-free, hit and run, comments).

    Better yet. Get lost.

  11. Dear Lucky,
    I’m a longstanding diamond. Do I need to do something special to get these points, or will they get applied automatically … even to stays that will be within the window that I booked some time in the past? Thanks!
    Peter.

  12. @ Peter — You’ll need to register, but then there’s nothing special you need to do after that. Even previous bookings should qualify.

  13. I think the AA bonus is better for stays before March 27 : 500 AAdvantage® Miles per night at:Hilton, Curio, DoubleTree by Hilton™, Embassy Suites, and Hilton Grand Vacations. 500 AAdvantage® Miles per stay at:Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton by Hilton® Home2 Suites, and Homewood Suites

  14. DCS comes up with a whopping list of 27 luxury properties globally, out of 5,000+ in total for the chain.

    I rest my (victorious) case

  15. @DCS Sez: “How predictably stupid. Do you know where I am going to spend 5 nights with the 5th night free during my 2017 Year-End Underage Asian Escapade? I will tell ya: Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, which is as “aspirational” as any major chain can offer.”

    Thank you for setting all these LOSERS in their place! I can’t wait to become as great as DCS so I can also have as many sex tours to Asia as you do and stay in ultimate style– at Hilton properties and earning really really valuable HHonors points! What’s better than an underage girl and a HUGE haul of HHonors points?

    Make HHonors Great Again!

  16. The list was hardly exhaustive, but that the moron, who has drunk the bloggers’ kool-aid about how Hilton is “weak” on high-end hotels, would be incapable of finding luxury Hilton hotels globally where to redeem points EVEN FROM THE ABBREVIATED LIST PROVIDED is the real story here. It’s the starkest evidence yet of limited intellectual capacity…REALLY.

  17. @DCS – I meant it’s better than the previous 2x pts promotion for those spending under $200/nt. If they did a xN promotion it would incentivize more spend.

  18. I scolded you once DCS, but I will do it again…your grand total of Conrads / WAs runs about 50. So 1% of the global total.

    “Hilton Paris La Defense” is pretty effing hilarious – you probably have no idea where that even is. Hint – it’s not in the part of Paris where people want to go and stay.

  19. Anyone who is unable to find “luxury” Hilton hotels to burn points at with 53 WAs and Conrads available around the world is stupid. That was my point. The proportion of luxury hotels in a chain’s portfolio is totally irrelevant (do the same estimation of the proportion of luxury to total hotels for any chain and you will see how stupid the argument is). Large chains make most of their money from low- to mid-level hotels and not from luxury ones, which may, in fact, be money losers (Starwood was touted for their wealthy collection of luxury hotels and look at what happened.)

    I am done wasting my time here.
