In mid-April, Hilton Honors revealed the details of its global summer promotion, and it’s very good. This promotion is valid for stays as of today, so in this post I wanted to recap the offer.

Hilton Honors More Nights, More Points promo

Hilton Honors’ current global promotion is called More Nights, More Points. With this promotion, Hilton Honors members can earn:

  • Double Hilton Honors points when staying one or two nights
  • Triple Hilton Honors points when staying three or more nights

There are some more details to be aware of, as you’d expect:

  • The promotion is valid for stays between May 3 and September 6, 2021
  • The number of bonus points that’s multiplied is determined by the base points earned (though bonus points don’t qualify as base points for the purposes of status qualification)
  • Registration is required prior to your first eligible stay
  • 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

How generous is Hilton Honors’ promotion?

Hilton Honors’ summer promotion is extremely generous, among the best we’ve seen. Just how many points can Hilton Honors members earn here?

  • Members ordinarily earn 10x Honors points per dollar spent at most brands
  • With this promotion, members earn 10-20x bonus Honors bonus points per dollar spent at most brands
  • Hilton Honors Gold members get an 80% points bonus, Hilton Honors Diamond members get a 100% points bonus

Hilton Honors is offering up to 3x points on hotel stays

On top of that, you can maximize your Hilton Honors points earned from hotel stays by paying 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:

In other words, as a Hilton Honors Diamond member paying with the Hilton Aspire Card, you’d be earning 44x Honors points per dollar spent on stays of up to two nights, and 54x Honors points per dollar spent on stays of three or more nights.

Personally I value Hilton Honors points at ~0.5 cents each, so by my math you’re earning a return of 22-27% on most Hilton spending, which is pretty incredible.

Earn up to 54x Hilton Honors points per dollar spent

Historically triple points promotions are as good as we see from Hilton Honors, so that’s excellent.

Bottom line

Hilton Honors has just launched its summer 2021 promotion, and it’s excellent. Hilton Honors is offering double points on stays of up to two nights, and triple points on stays of three or more nights. This gives members an additional 10-20x Honors points per dollar spent, on top of Hilton’s already excellent points earnings rates.

I was curious to see if hotel loyalty programs would offer generous promotions this summer, given how anxious people are to travel. It seems that the answer is yes, because both Hilton Honors and IHG Rewards Club have launched rather generous promotions already. Here’s to hoping that Marriott Bonvoy and World of Hyatt have similarly good offers.

What do you make of Hilton’s new promotion?

  1. More I think about trying to hit Hyatt Globalist, I realize Hilton will do for me since I have aspire card and Hilton is everywhere. Rather that than trying to stay at Hyatt properties which might be in less than stellar locations, which defeat the purpose of enjoying the vacation.

  2. @Philly380 Hyatt definitely has some sweet spots, but no doubt no point in trying to force Globalist if where you travel/vacation doesn’t have Hyatt properties you can reap the benefits of Globalist with.

  3. I booked my stay in May a month ago. Will that trip still work with this promo after I register the promo today?

    Thank you!

  4. The old promo was per stay so it applied to both cash and reward stays, but this one appears to be cash only.

  5. Do Hiltons charge a resort fee when you use a free night certificate? I’ve seen mixed info online.

  6. @rich
    Hilton does not charge any fees, taxes when using any kind of award, such as certificate. You also get all your membership perks on award/certificate stays.

  7. NONSENSE! Usual, good if you are American and have access to credit cards offering all these good earning rates. Not good if you are a normal diamond earning status the old fashioned way on spend. Also it is no where near as good as the promotion now.

    For example, last stay Hilton Sukhumvit. Base point 407. So new promo I get 814.
    Old promo 2407.

    So tell me how is it so great?!

  8. @Gavin- I think if youre staying in cheap hotels, the current (expiring) promo is good. For people who stay at more expensive hotels (ie >$200 per night), the upcoming promo is way better. 2000 extra bonus points doesnt really move the needle when I’m getting >20,000 base points on most of my stays even before factoring in Diamond / Credit Card bonuses

  9. As I’ve said many times, Hilton Diamond would be a slam-dunk if all the properties Hilton and above were required to have an Executive Lounge. I’ve been Diamond for quite some time and am constantly amazed to find how few Hilton’s (especially in the U.S.) do NOT have a lounge. Yet, they tout it proudly in the list of Diamond perks. Let’s face it…it’s not a perk if it doesn’t exist!

  10. @gavin you must be staying at really cheap hotels. Under the new promo, if you spend $50 for two with the Aspire card you’re already making 2,000 points (44 pts/$).

  11. @Gary per the FAQ, as long as your register for the program prior to checkout you’re good to go.

  12. @Philly380, @Nomilk – I hear you. I’m just seven nights away from reaching Hyatt Globalist status, and I’m wondering if its really worth the effort. Compared to Hilton, their footprint is small, and frankly I’m getting sick of staying at the cookie-cutter Hyatt Place properties which are the only options in a lot of places I’m traveling to. I stayed at a Hyatt Place in Grand Rapids last week. It was so exactly like every other Hyatt place for a moment I forgot what city I was in!

    Marriott has made it abundantly clear to me that my Lifetime Titanium status means absolutely nothing to them. Perhaps I should give Hilton another look.
