Hilton has a new promotion kicking off on September 1, 2017, that runs all the way through the end of 2017 and will award double Hilton points on eligible Hilton stays for everyone who registers. Those who have Hilton Diamond status will get double points + 10,000 bonus points per 10 eligible nights, up to a max of 5 times for 50,000 bonus points for 50 eligible nights.
It may not be a super exciting promo, but it is simple, straight-forward, and only excludes the Hampton by Hilton Hotels in Mainland China. It will also stack with the 500 bonus Hilton points per stay you can earn by booking via the Hilton Honors App through the end of 2017.
As an example of how this works, if you had a $150 stay at a Hilton Hotel then normally you would earn 10x points per dollar for a total of 1,500 Hilton points. With this bonus you would earn 2x that rate for a total of 3,000 Hilton points. Assuming you book via the app, that total is now 3,500 Hilton points. If you paid for that $150 stay with your Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express then you earn 12x Hilton points for that charge for a total of 1,800 more Hilton points.
That is a perfect example of how paying attention to promos and having the right rewards credit card can take a ho-hum earnings situation of 1,500 Hilton points to one that rings in at about 5,300 Hilton points for the very same stay.
While the Double Up promo doesn’t start until September 1, 2017, you can go ahead and register now so you don’t miss out on any bonus points!
