…but you must first register for this promotion prior to completing a stay during the promotion period — you can register for this promotion now, as registration is now live — and you can earn bonus Hilton Honors points even on reward stays during the Points Unlimited promotion.

An example of how you can earn bonus Hilton Honors points during the Points Unlimited promotion is 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 five night threshold reached four times during that single stay for earning the 5,000 bonus point award four times for a total of 20,000 bonus points.

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
  • 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

A recent study conducted by Hilton revealed that 89 percent of survey respondents are excited about creating new travel memories with friends and family in 2021.

Twitter users were recently polled by Hilton Honors and were asked, where would you go if you had unlimited points? Responses indicated that a few Hilton hotel properties which are located in the most sought-after destinations on which members can redeem Hilton Honors points in the new year include:

Other Opportunities With Hilton and Hilton Honors

For additional savings when booking with Hilton Honors Points, the fifth night of a single stay is always free; plus, Hilton Honors waives resort fees on all award stays. Members can also use their Hilton Honors points beyond hotel stays — including Lyft ride credits and charitable donations to their favorite causes.

Keep in mind that members of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program are being given potentially eat opportunities to earn even more points to use towards a future stay starting this month — and as a member, in addition to redeeming Hilton Honors points on hotel stays, charitable contributions, and various partners, you can:

  • Register for the Double Rewards promotion to receive double Hilton Honors bonus points per stay as well as double night credits until Thursday, December 31, 2020, which means that every night you stay counts twice towards earning the next elite tier status — as well as even more Hilton Honors points to use toward a future stay at a participating hotel or resort property.
  • Earn 10,000 Hilton Honors points simply by completing your first survey within 90 days by Thursday, December 31, 2020 — but you must join Guest Opinion Rewards prior to completing your first survey 10,000 Hilton Honors points by the end of the year.
  • Earn 250 Hilton Honors bonus points simply by linking your Hilton Honors membership account with your Lyft membership account; and earn an additional 750 Hilton Honors bonus points on your first ride bonus for a total of 1,000 Hilton Honors bonus points — but you must link your membership accounts prior to completing an eligible ride operated by Lyft by Thursday, December 31, 2020 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Standard Time.
  • Earn 5,000 Hilton Honors points simply by spending a minimum of $25.00 at a participating restaurant, bar, club, or other dining establishment within 30 days of joining as a member of the Hilton Honors dining program by Thursday, December 31, 2020 — and after that, you can earn 10 Hilton Honors points for every United States dollar spent this year.
  • Apply for the Hilton Honors American Express Card by Sunday, January 31, 2021. New card members can earn a $100.00 statement credit after their first card purchase and 75,000 Hilton Honors bonus points after spending $1,000.00 in purchases on the card within the first three months. With the statement credit and 75,000 Hilton Honors bonus points, members could enjoy two nights at one of the mountain getaway properties used as an example later in this article — and still have points to spare! Plus, the $100.00 statement credit is received after the first purchase — including gasoline or road trip snacks — and can help offset part of the cost of any trip mementos.
  • Receive a bonus of 100 percent on any purchase of a minimum of 10,000 Hilton Honors points — up to a maximum limit of 160,000 Hilton Honors points for $1,600.00, which is $0.005 per point when factoring in the bonus points — but you only have until Thursday, December 31, 2020 to take advantage of this offer.
  • As an extension to Hilton EventReady with CleanStay, you can earn double event planner points with this flexible offer, which applies to events booked through Thursday, December 31, 2020 for meetings or events occurring now through Monday, May 31, 2021. Members in the Event Planner Program can now receive double Hilton Honors Points — that is, two points per eligible United States dollar spent — in addition to extended flexibility allowing meetings and events to cancel without penalty up to eight days in advance of arrival.

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.

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.

With the latest iteration of the Points Unlimited promotion, all members of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program get to earn 5,000 bonus points with every five nights — which is better than this similar promotion which was offered one year ago through which you could earn 10,000 bonus points with every ten nights. This means that the thresholds have been halved in order for you to earn Hilton Honors bonus points; so you can earn bonus Hilton Honors points with five nights instead of waiting for the threshold of ten nights.

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