Receive double Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program points for all stays starting Monday, May 6, 2019 through Sunday, September 8, 2019 when you register for the latest iteration of the double points promotion prior to your first stay — and for this iteration of this promotion, you can also earn up to 45,000 bonus Hilton Honors points via bonus levels in addition to the double points you earn, as you will earn an extra:

  • 10,000 Hilton Honors points after completing ten stays
  • 15,000 Hilton Honors points after completing 15 stays
  • 20,000 Hilton Honors points after completing 20 stays

Double Points Promotion Returns With Hilton Honors Spring 2019 With Point Bonus Levels — But…

…but eligibility in this promotion starts with your second stay and not with your first stay. Members who have earned Silver, Gold or Diamond elite level status will in addition earn their elite tier bonus.

Additional spend on room service or other services charged to the room will count towards earning Bonus Points; however, additional spend on services at Hampton by Hilton, Tru by Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton, and Home2 Suites by Hilton will not count towards earning Bonus Points.

The promotion is 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…

…but the requirement of not earning bonus points of any kind until after the second stay is somewhat disappointing; and this offer does not benefit you as much if you book your reservations in blocks — such as a week at a time, for example.

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.
