As promised yesterday, Hilton Honors is now live with their Points Pooling feature where you can share points for free with up to 10 other Hilton Honors members! They are the only loyalty program that allows you to share points for free with anywhere near that number of people without any address, family/household, or elite status restrictions.

 

How to Pool Your Hilton Honors Points for Free

To pool your Hilton points, first log into your online Hilton Honors account.

Click on “More Ways to Use Points”. Then select, “Pool Points”.

On the next screen you will be asked to enter the names and email addresses of those who you would like to invite to pool points with you.

The points pooling invitation emails go out pretty instantaneously, and the person that sends out the emailed invites is the one that will receive the points.

The person who is going to send you points can click through the email they received and select how many points to send ranging from 1,000 – 500,000, up to the max in their account. A member can receive up to 2,000,000 pooled points in a year. Note that the terms also indicate that in order to pool points you must have been a member for at least 30 days and have at least 1,000 points in your account. The terms also state that point transfers can take up to 24 hours to process.

Pooled points don’t go into a special “pool”, they simply go into the account of the person who initiated the pool and sent out the emails inviting others, so obviously be sure you trust that person with the points! I think this feature is great in case you want to pool points to book a room with friends, family members, or even just essentially gift points to someone without having to pay a fee!

  1. that’s cool, makes it easier than filling out forms (Hyatt) and making a call (Marriott). Will have to see if it works that easily.
