Update: Digital Key Promotion of 2,500 Bonus Hilton HHonors Points Has Been Extended Through October 31, 2015
T hrough Saturday, October 31, 2015, you can earn 2,500 bonus Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program points when you use the new “digital key” to access your hotel room — and although only 14 hotel properties are listed, I received an updated list from a source with Hilton Worldwide.
Additionally, accessibility of Digital Key through your portable electronic device has been expanded as well: as of Monday, October 5, 2015, Digital Key is now available for users of portable electronic devices operating on the Android operating system using the Hilton HHonors software application program — which is available here — and has been downloaded greater than 584,000 times this year alone.
There are now 21 hotel properties in the United States which are equipped for the use of Digital Key — listed alphabetically in order of state — and direct links to the specific hotel properties have been included for your convenience:
I had originally called this promotion “most useless” because there was only one hotel property in the world which was participating in this promotion, which was to have expired on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 — but now that 20 additional hotel properties have been added around the United States; an Android version of the interface is now available; and the promotion had been extended through Saturday, October 31, 2015, this promotion is looking better and better.
Look for more hotel properties to be added to the list. Although I did not receive definitive information, I would not be surprised if this promotion was extended for yet another month — which should happen, in my opinion.
FlyerTalk members are participating in this discussion pertaining to this promotion. According to FlyerTalk members, Hilton Austin in Texas and Hilton Sacramento Arden West are also reportedly on the list of hotel properties which are now enabled with Digital Key technology; but I have not received official confirmation of that at this time.
