Hilton’s 3rd quarter promotion came to an end last week and we need to wait until November 1st for the next systemwide promotion for Hilton HHonors bonus points. In the meantime, you can take advantage of the four airline related promotions out there; Delta SkyMiles, Emirates Skywards, Lufthansa Miles & More and Virgin Atlantic Flying Club.
Hilton HHonors will officially announce the new promo on October 17 and the promotion period will be from November 1 to December 31, 2012.
What I have learned from two independent sources is that the promotion is for 1000 bonus points per night for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights. You won’t earn any bonus points for Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
Last year, Hilton run a fantastic promotion for a free night certificate for every four stays that I took fully advantage of. Thousand bonus points for Thursday to Monday stays is of course better than nothing, but is not enough for me to move any stays to Hilton that wouldn’t have happened in the first place.
