For quite a while Hilton Honors has been offering a bonus for new program members. This promotion has now been extended into 2022…

New Hilton Honors members can earn 5K points

New members of Hilton Honors can earn up to 5,000 bonus points after two paid stays:

  • To take advantage of this promotion, members must enroll by March 31, 2022
  • Members earn 2,000 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 towards this promotion
  • There’s no registration required

Personally I value Hilton points at ~0.5 cents each, so that’s an incremental $25 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, on January 1, 2022, Hilton Honors is launching the Points Unlimited promotion, offering 2,500 bonus points per stay, with no limits.

So after two paid stays with this promotion, new members would earn a minimum of 10,000 Hilton Honors points, not even accounting for the base points one earns.

The easiest way to earn Hilton Honors points

If you’re in the United States and have good credit, the easiest way to earn Hilton Honors points is with Amex Hilton co-branded credit cards, including the:

These cards offer huge welcome bonuses, and valuable perks, including elite status and (in some cases) free night certificates.

Bottom line

New Hilton Honors members can earn 5,000 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?

    What is Hilton offering to then take away? They have become such a disappointment, especially for members who have been loyal and have built up lifetime diamond status. I cannot recommend using Hilton in the USA.

      For anyone to complain because Hilton has run a worthless promo that targets only new members is what is disappointing, especially after the program just ran a global Q4 2021 promo that awarded Diamonds 54x and has just extended to 12/31/2022 a promo that allows every single bonus point earned with any of its co-branded AMEX cards to count as base points for the purpose of elite or Lifetime Diamond status qualification. I guess you also missed where the program has outright extended the elite status and free night certificate(s) of every member who had either or both starting back in 2020...

      The easier thing for you to do, it seems to me, is to quit a program that's "such a disappointment" to you. Just be careful not to let the door hit you on your way out...

      G'day

    @DCS
    What’s your opinion about this promo?

    1. JoePro Guest

      Seriously?

      Why do I get the feeling that you and DCS are one and the same.

    2. DCS Diamond

      @JoePro - You get that feeling because you are unhinged. The forum host knows who's who here, y'know.

      @Jill - Promo is close to worthless, but serves to get new members excited for earning their first promo points...

      G'day.

    3. JoePro Guest

      Nope. I get that feeling because your posts and self-promotion constantly and consistently reveal your narcissism. I also get that feeling because nobody coherent would really need to seek out anyone's opinion of this promo to guide them. (Though one could surmise her inquiry was facetious)

      Anyways, it wouldn't be beyond a narcissist to seek their own opinion via a false personality.

      I'll give you the benefit of the doubt in this case, though.

      G'day

      Like I said - unhinged.
