Hilton HHonors 4th quarter “1,000 Reasons” promotion starts on November 1 and ends on December 31, 2012. I already wrote about this promotion couple of days ago. Hilton was supposed to unveil this promotion on October 17, but the website is already up and running. You need to register for this promotion to be eligible for the bonus points.
You will earn 1000 bonus Hilton HHonors points per Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights. You won’t earn any bonus for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Note that there is a list of non-participating properties for this promotion. Make sure that your stay is not at any of them. Cancel and rebook if needed.
This is bit of a letdown compared to the promotion that Hilton HHonors had for the same period of last year; free night certificate for every four stays. Of course, bonus points are better than nothing, but you should have a look at what other hotel chains are offering for the same period and act accordingly.
