Frequent Flyer Friday: Hilton Honors Announces Double Points Promotion

Hilton Honors just announced a new promotion which begins on May 1st. Hilton will offer double points on every stay between May 1 and August 31. Registration is required and Hilton should have a registration page up by next week.

Double Points

Here's how many points you'll earn starting May 1st with the new promotion.

  • 10 Honors bonus points for stays at most brands (for a total of 20 points per dollar)
  • 5 Honors bonus points for stays at Home2 Suite by Hilton and Tru by Hilton (for a total of 10 points per dollar)
  • This is in addition to the elite bonus points that Silver, Gold, and Diamond members earn

This means that with the exception of two limited service brands, Hilton Honors members will earn 20 points per dollar spent, Silver members will earn 22 points per dollar spent, Gold members will earn 28 points per dollar spent, and Diamond members will earn 30 points per dollar spent. Needless to say this is a great promotion since it means Diamond and Gold Members will be earning almost 15% back in points on each stay while Silver and Honors Members will be earning closer to 10% back in points on each stay.

This promotion will be valid at Hilton’s portfolio of over 5,000 hotels around the world, and unlike some other chains, all properties should be participating in this promotion. There’s also no cap on how many points you can earn, and there’s no minimum stay requirement.
