Today I got an email from Hilton that describes an interesting promo that they have coming on January 17th. For 24 hours you will be able to book a room under there Any Weekend, AnyWhere Sale and save up to 33% and get a bonus 2,500 HHonors points for your stay. The booking period for the bonus 2,500 HHonors points will be from January 17, 2012, 12:00 PM EST to January 18, 2012, 11:59 AM EST. The Any Weekend, AnyWhere Sale also provides 1,000 points for any stay of two nights or longer for stays any weekend night between January 9, 2012, and December 30, 2012. So it is sort of a promo within a promo.
Stays must subsequently be completed in order to receive the 2,500 Bonus Points. There is a maximum of 10,000 Bonus Points per HHonors member for this offer. Please allow 4-6 weeks from completion of your stay for points to appear in your HHonors account. Rooms subject to availability. Full non-refundable prepayment required at time of booking. Must book at least seven (7) days in advance of arrival. Some exceptions apply. Discounts vary and range from 20%-33% off Best Available Rates and, at certain properties in Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, to Bed & Breakfast Rate. Blackout dates may apply.
For the purposes of this promo a weekend stay is defined as “a stay is a completed reservation for any night Thursday through Sunday in 2012. If you plan to check-in on a Thursday, a two-night minimum is required to book using the Any Weekend, Anywhere Sale rate and to receive the 1,000 Hilton HHonors Bonus Points through the Any Weekend, Anywhere Sale.” This promo presumably stacks with the 5,000 HHonors weekend bonus promo that I posted about here. I have tweeted @HHonors to get clarification on that, but if it works out then you could get 10,500 bonus HHonors points for a two night weekend stay during the overlap time of the various promos! This also stacks with some of their airline promos that are described by Loyalty Traveler here.
Here are the steps for participating in this 24 hour promo (courtesy of the Hilton Facebook page):
STEP 1: Book an Any Weekend, Anywhere Sale reservation using the form on the 24-Hour Bonus Event tab during the 24-Hour Bonus Event (12:00pm ET on January 17, 2012 to 11:59am ET on January 18, 2012). Only stays booked using the ANY WEEKEND, ANYWHERE SALE rate will qualify for the 24-Hour Bonus Event.
STEP 2: Return to the 24-Hour Bonus Event tab to enter your reservation confirmation and Hilton HHonors numbers. Note that you will have to like them on Facebook to do this.
STEP 3: Complete your Any Weekend, Anywhere Sale stay by December 30, 2012 and earn 2,500 HHonors Bonus Points!

This promo seems a little bit complex for some folks who don’t want to mess with all of those steps, but it is worth checking out if you have a weekend stay at a Hilton hotel in 2012. Just be cautious since this promo does require non-refundable prepayment, which is not very family-friendly. 😉
What do you think of this promo? Will you be booking a weekend stay when the promo begins on 1/17?
