Points Unlimited Promotion From Hilton Honors Returns in 2019

You can earn 2,000 bonus Hilton Honors points per stay in the new Points Unlimited promotion from Hilton Honors starting on Friday, January 4, 2019 through Sunday, May 5, 2019 — plus you can earn an additional 10,000 bonus Hilton Honors points for every five completed stays or ten nights, regardless of whether or not you have earned elite level status…

Points Unlimited Promotion From Hilton Honors Returns in 2019

…but you must first register for this promotion prior to completing a stay during the promotion period.

As with past promotions, this promotion is so incredibly simple — when being told “no” repeatedly is a good thing — as there are:

  • 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 — except for Hampton Inn hotel properties located in Mainland China, which are excluded from this promotion
  • No maximum limits as to how many bonus Hilton Honors points you can earn during the promotion period, as inferred by the name of the promotion itself

Examples of Earning Bonus Hilton Honors Points

Examples of how you can earn bonus Hilton Honors points during the Points Unlimited promotion — even on reward stays — include the following:

  • In terms of stays:
    • 1 stay = 2,000 bonus Hilton Honors points
    • 2 stays = 4,000 bonus Hilton Honors points
    • 5 stays = 20,000 bonus Hilton Honors points — note how the 10,000 point bonus kicks in here
    • 6 stays = 22,000 bonus Hilton Honors points
    • 10 stays = 40,000 bonus Hilton Honors points — this includes 20,000 bonus Hilton Honors points plus two 10,000 point bonuses
  • In terms of nights:
    • One stay comprised of 20 nights equals 22,000 points — having earned 2,000 bonus points for one stay at 2,000 bonus points per stay plus the 10 night threshold twice during that single stay for earning the 10,000 bonus point award twice for a total of 20,000 bonus points
  • Stay five times with a total of nine nights in one month; then stay twice with a total of ten nights in another month:
    • You earn a total of 34,000 bonus points with the promotion — having earned 14,000 bonus points for seven stays at 2,000 bonus points per stay plus receive the 10,000 bonus point award once for staying five times in one month and then earn another 10,000 bonus point award in the other month for staying ten nights
  • Stay three times with a total of eleven nights in one month; then stay four times with a total of nine nights in another month:
    • You earn a total of 34,000 bonus points with the promotion — having earned 14,000 bonus points for seven stays at 2,000 bonus points per stay plus receive the 10,000 bonus point award once for staying at least ten nights in one month — and since you had one additional night over the ten night threshold requirement in one month, this extra night was then automatically applied with the nine nights in the other month to earn the 10,000 bonus point award again

Participating Brands

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

Wi-Fi Access

Wi-Fi access is not free of charge in meeting spaces or at hotel or resort properties with a resort charge.

Although premium Wi-Fi access is available for a fee at selected properties — except for members of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program who have earned Diamond elite level VIP status — members of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program who book direct will enjoy free standard Wi-Fi access at any hotel or resort properties under the aforementioned brands participating in this promotion.

Select Terms and Conditions

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.

There are restrictions on the amount of base Hilton Honors points which can be earned on a single stay at certain brands.

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.

Other terms and conditions — including those pertaining to Hilton Honors discounts and those of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program — apply.

Summary

The new Points Unlimited promotion from Hilton Honors can actually be more rewarding than the current promotion — which offers double and up to triple points per stay — for guests who typically pay less expensive room rates for stays of a short duration.

With the latest iteration of the Points Unlimited promotion, all members of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program get to earn 10,000 bonus points with every five stays…

…and now, also every ten nights — whichever comes first.

If you tend to consistently pay more expensive room rates, you may well have benefited better with the current promotion than with the upcoming Points Unlimited promotion — unless you stay often enough, in which case the 10,000 bonus Hilton Honors points after every five stays kicks in — but the upcoming promotion is still not a disappointment, in my opinion.

I have already registered for this promotion. Members of the team at Hilton Honors have been doing a great job at offering creative promotions while simultaneously keeping them simple.
