This post is a reminder that Hilton Honors’ newest global promotion launches today, and is valid through the end of the year. This is worth being aware of for future stays. I’d also recommend taking a few moments to register, since you never know when the promotion will come in handy.
Hilton Honors’ Double Rewards promo
Hilton Honors’ new global promotion launched today, and is called Hilton Double Rewards. With this promotion, Hilton Honors members will earn double bonus points and double elite nights for all stays during the promotion period:
- The promotion is valid between September 8 and December 31, 2020
- Registration is required prior to your first eligible stay
- The double elite nights will count towards Milestone Bonuses, fast tracks, and rollover nights
- Even award stays count for this promotion, so you’ll earn double elite nights, and will earn double points for any of your spending on incidentals
- It can take up to six to eight weeks for bonus points to post, though they’ll typically post much faster than that
- You can find promotion FAQs here
This is a great promotion:
- At most brands, this means Hilton Honors members will earn 10x bonus Honors points per dollar spent
- Hilton Honors will be rolling over all elite nights earned in 2020 to the 2021 program year, meaning that the double elite nights will count towards next year’s status
Personally I value Hilton Honors points at ~0.5 cents each, so earning an incremental 10x points per dollar spent is like an incremental return of 5%, by my valuation.
Hilton Honors is offering double points and elite nights
Maximize points with Hilton credit cards
To maximize the Hilton Honors points you earn for your hotel stays, make sure you’re paying for your stays with a co-branded Hilton American Express card (the best credit cards for earning Hilton Honors points). These cards earn points at the following rates at Hilton properties:
- Hilton Honors American Express Card (review) – 7 points per dollar
- Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card (review) – 12 points per dollar
- Hilton Honors American Express Business Card (review) – 12 points per dollar
- Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card (review) – 14 points per dollar
Earn up to 14x points by paying with the right credit card
Hilton Honors deserves a lot of credit for constantly offering promotions.
The program has just launched its new Hilton Double Rewards promo, offering double bonus points and double elite nights on all stays. That’s a solid promotion since you not only earn up to 10x bonus points per dollar spent at Hiltons, but you also earn elite nights that will roll over to next year. Make sure you register.
