Extended: Double Points Promotion With Hilton Honors 2018 — Plus Earn Up to 7,500 Points on Car Rentals

The popular promotion for you to earn double Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program points for all stays has been extended through Sunday, September 9, 2018 so that you may take advantage of the Labor Day holiday in the United States to earn more points for your stays — and if you still not have done so, you can still register for the latest iteration of the double points promotion prior to your first stay.

Extended: Double Points Promotion With Hilton Honors 2018 — Plus Earn Up to 7,500 Points on Car Rentals

In addition, you can earn 500 Hilton Honors points every time you rent a car with National Car Rental, Alamo Rent A Car, and Enterprise Rent-A-Car at participating locations worldwide — and this offer is valid for car rentals completed by Monday, December 31, 2018. Then earn 500 additional Hilton Honors points for every rental day for one day through four days. Earn an additional 7,000 Hilton Honors points for car rentals five days in duration or greater.

  • 1 day vehicle rental = 1,000 Hilton Honors points
  • 2 day vehicle rental = 1,500 Hilton Honors points
  • 3 day vehicle rental = 2,000 Hilton Honors points
  • 4 day vehicle rental = 2,500 Hilton Honors points
  • 5 days vehicle rental or greater = 7,500 Hilton Honors points

Additional Information for the Double Points Offer

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 Hilton Honors points are subject to the restrictions, terms and conditions of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program. Other restrictions, terms and conditions — including those of the best price guarantee and the Hilton Honors discount — may apply.

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


Last year, the maximum amount of Hilton Honors points you could earn per car rental was 5,000 Hilton Honors points; so the maximum limit has been increased by another 2,500 Hilton Honors points for the remainder of 2018.

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 when it becomes available next week.
