Double Points Promotion Returns With Hilton Honors Fall 2019 — With Triple Points For Hilton Honors Credit Cardholders

Receive double Hilton Honors points for all stays at hotel and resort properties worldwide which participate in the frequent guest loyalty program starting Monday, September 9, 2019 through Sunday, January 5, 2020 when you register for the latest iteration of the double points promotion prior to your first stay — but for this iteration of this popular promotion, you can also earn triple Hilton Honors points if you are a Hilton Honors credit cardholder.

Double Points Promotion Returns With Hilton Honors Fall 2019 — With Triple Points For Hilton Honors Credit Cardholders

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

Select 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. Registered Hilton Honors members checking in before September 9, 2019 will receive credit for their stay if the stay is completed on or after September 9, 2019 and prior to or on January 5, 2020.

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. Triple Points means that for each dollar spent using your Hilton Honors credit card on stays at a hotel or resort property within the Hilton portfolio during the promotion period, you will receive a bonus equal to twice the number of base points earned during a stay.

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

However, there are restrictions on the amount of Base Points that can be earned on a single stay at certain brands.

A stay is defined as the total number of consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, whether or not a guest checks out and checks back in again.

In-room Internet access, fitness center access, health club access, and bottled water benefits may not be complimentary at properties with a resort charge. Space-available upgrades only available at select brands. Elite status benefits are subject to availability and vary by brand. 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

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.
