For roughly a year now, Hilton Honors has been offering a bonus to new members who complete eligible activity. The previous promotion was valid through March 31, 2022, but we’ve now seen a new promotion introduced. While not quite as good as the previous one, it’s still worth being aware of.

New Hilton Honors members can earn 4,500 points

New members of Hilton Honors can earn up to 4,500 bonus points after two paid stays:

  • To take advantage of this promotion, members must enroll by December 31, 2022
  • Members earn 1,500 bonus points after the first stay, and 3,000 additional bonus points after the second stay
  • Stays must be booked directly with Hilton
  • Stays must be completed within six months of joining Hilton Honors
  • Hilton Honors awards don’t qualify toward this promotion
  • There’s no registration required

Personally I value Hilton points at ~0.5 cents each, so that’s an incremental $22.50 worth of points after two stays, by my valuation. That’s not life changing, though it’s nice when you consider that it’s on top of normal points earning opportunities.

That’s because this promotion can be stacked with Hilton Honors’ standard global promotions. For example, through May 1, 2022, Hilton Honors members can earn 2,500 bonus points with each stay, and there are no limits on how many bonus points you can earn.

So after two paid stays with this promotion, new members would earn a minimum of 9,500 Hilton Honors points, not even accounting for the base points one earns.

Bottom line

New Hilton Honors members can earn 4,500 bonus points after completing two stays. This is in addition to the points that can usually be earned. So for those few OMAAT readers who aren’t yet Hilton Honors members, this promotion could be worth taking advantage of.

Is anyone taking advantage of this Hilton new member bonus?
