Several co-branded Hilton Honors Amex cards offer a free weekend night certificate, either as an annual benefit (like on the Hilton Aspire Card), or as an incentive for spending money on a card (like on the Hilton Surpass Card). There’s some great news, as the expiration of some of these certificates has been extended yet again.
In this case, the expiration of Hilton free night certificates that were issued before May 1, 2020, is being extended. These were previously due to expire on August 31, 2021, but are now valid through January 3, 2022.
Just to summarize the expiration dates of outstanding Hilton free night certificates:
- Hilton free night rewards issued before May 1, 2020, are valid through January 3, 2022
- Hilton free night rewards issued between May 1 and December 31, 2020, are valid for 24 months
- Hilton free night rewards issued between January 1 and December 31, 2021, are valid through December 31, 2022
While these are historically weekend free night certificates, those issued at least through the end of 2021 can be used for stays any day of the week, and not just weekends. That adds a huge amount of flexibility to these rewards.

Hilton Honors has just extended the expiration date of some credit card free night certificates issued in 2020, which were supposed to expire at the end of August 2021. These have now been extended into early 2022.
In general Hilton Honors has done a fantastic job with extending benefits during the pandemic, and the free night certificates are a great example of that. I’ve loved the flexibility of being able to redeem them for stays any night of the week.
