Double Points Promotion Returns With Hilton Honors Fall 2018 — But Now With Triple Points on Luxury and Resort Stays

Receive double Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program points for all stays starting Monday, September 10, 2018 through Thursday, January 3, 2019 when you register for the latest iteration of the double points promotion prior to your first stay — but for this iteration of this promotion, you can also earn triple Hilton Honors points for stays at 243 luxury hotel and resort properties.

Double Points Promotion Returns With Hilton Honors Fall 2018 — But Now With Triple Points on Luxury and Resort Stays

For every dollar you spend on stays, you will earn ten base points plus an additional ten bonus points — except for stays at Home2 Suite by Hilton and Tru by Hilton, where you will earn five base points plus five bonus points. Members who have earned Silver, Gold or Diamond elite level status will in addition earn their elite tier bonus.

The promotion is so incredibly simple — when being told “no” repeatedly is a good thing — as:

  • No minimum stays are required to start earning
  • No minimum number of nights are required in your stay
  • No restrictions by nights, cities or brands will be implemented
  • No limits are imposed as to how many Hilton Honors points you can earn during the promotion period

Participating Brands

All brands of the Hilton portfolio are participating in this promotion, which include:

Terms and Conditions

You must be a member of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program to participate in this promotion; and you must register for this promotion prior to your first stay.

Once you have registered for this promotion, you will only receive bonus Hilton Honors points for nights completed during the promotion period — regardless of whether you check in for your stay before the promotion period begins or check out of your stay after the promotion period ends. You will earn double Hilton Honors bonus points per stay during the promotion period — meaning that you will receive a bonus equal to the number of base Hilton Honors points earned during a stay based on elite tier status at the time of checking out of the hotel or resort property.

Bonus Hilton Honors points earned on base points do not count toward qualification of elite tier status.

Please allow up to eight weeks from completion of your stay for points to appear in your Hilton Honors account.

There are restrictions on the amount of base points which can be earned on a single stay at certain brands. Hilton Honors membership, earning of Points & Miles when booking direct and redemption of Points are subject to Hilton Honors Terms and Conditions.

Not all room rates are eligible for this promotion — including but not necessarily limited to:

  • Wholesale or tour operator packages
  • Contracted crew rates
  • Travel agency discount rates
  • Packages exclusively for casino player card holders
  • Team Member Travel rates
  • Hilton Family Travel Rates
  • Stays secured utilizing Hilton Grand Vacations Club and Hilton Club timeshare programs
  • Hilton Grand Vacations marketing packages with a sales presentation requirement
  • Complimentary or barter rooms
  • NET Group rates
  • Series Group or IT Group rates
  • Contracted Entertainment or Encore rates
  • Third party Internet web site bookings — irrespective of rate paid
  • “Opaque” channel bookings where the brand may or may not be known at the time of purchase

Summary

Hilton has been doing a good job in continuing what is essentially the same popular promotion of awarding double Hilton Honors points per stay — but adding twists to it to differentiate it each quarter with few restrictions and yet keep the promotion fresh and interesting.

Even if you currently have no plans to stay at a hotel or resort property within the brand portfolio of Hilton, the only cost to you will be the few seconds of your time you spend registering for this promotion — and I intend to take advantage of it.

    Interesting…if this is for real I’ll be getting an extra 20,000 for stays I already have booked and paid for on an upcoming trip to Thailand and Japan in December. However, there is absolutely no mention of this at all on the Hilton website, only the promotion that ends on Sept. 9. Anyway, I registered for that one even though I have no stays during that period, per your instructions.

    1. Frank says:

      Okay, Hilton just announced it on their site…you’re too fast! However, the link to register for it is currently not working.

      1. Brian Cohen says:

        Hmm…that has happened before, Frank; but the problem is usually corrected in a reasonable amount of time…

    2. Brian Cohen says:

      The information posted in this article is directly from Hilton, Frank, and I am thankfully amongst the first people which Hilton contacts with news; so I can assure you that this is indeed the real deal.

  2. Matthew says:

    I started a stay on Sept 8. Noticed the promotion on Sept 10 and registered. Will be staying through the 18th. Looks like I won’t get any double points. Can I ask the hotel to split the stay into two different stays?

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      You should be able to do that, Matthew; but if you registered for the previous double points promotion which ended on September 9, 2018, you should be good to go.

      Regardless, I believe that you can leave your reservation alone and simply have the double points applied to the portion of your stay which is within the promotion period.
