The registration for this promotion will eventually work at HHonors.com/Triple, but Hilton has acknowledged that they are having website issues and you need to call Hilton HHonors to have your account signed up. The number for Hilton HHonors is country dependent and you can see the numbers that I have in back of my Hilton HHonors Diamond card below. I would advise you to call the US number using Skype.

You can find the frequently asked questions by Hilton about this promotion at the end of this article.

If your stay falls during the weekdays (double points) and weekends (triple points), Hilton HHonors averages the nightly rates and the double/triple points are based on that. It is generally better, as the weekday nights tend to be more expensive than weekend ones.

Conclusion

It is really sad state of affairs at Hilton for not having website registration working  for a promotion that has already started.

How will the Double and Triple points be calculated
For the Triple Your Trip promotion, the Bonus Points you earn per night are calculated based on the average nightly folio of your total stay (average nightly folio is calculated by taking the total net folio of your stay during the Promotion Period, divided by the total number of nights of the stay). Triple Your Trip “Double Points” are awarded for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights in your stay. Triple Your Trip “Triple Points” are awarded for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in your stay.

Example:
US Net Folio: $1,038.38 x 10 pts per $1 = 10,383 BASE Points
10,383 BASE Points / 7* = 1,483 Average Points Per Night
*(replace 7 with total # of nights of the stay within the Promotion Period)

CALCULATION OF TRIPLE POINTS:

  • Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights (3 nights) will receive Triple Points
  • Triple  Points is always 2 x BASE. Therefore, 2 x (BASE) 1,483 = 2,966
  • 2,966 (triple points value) x 3 (total nights that are eligible for triple points) = 8,898 (total triple points for 3 nights)

CALCULATION OF DOUBLE POINTS:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights (4 nights) will receive Double Points
  • Double Points is always 1X BASE. Therefore, 1 x (BASE) 1,483 = 1,483
  • 1,483 X 4 (total nights eligible for double points) =  5,932 (total double points for 4 nights)

CALCULATION OF TOTAL BONUS POINTS AWARDED:
8,898 (total triple points) + 5,932 (total double points) = 14,830

    • Thanks! 685 non-participating properties!

  • Jonathan Clough

    Just tried calling the Platinum line in the US – I am a platinum member and both times got the busy signal after entering my membership number and being told that my call would be answered shortly. Anyone else having the same problem? Maybe they’re having problems with the phone lines as well as the web site

    Third time lucky 🙂 Got through and signed up.

    • Phone lines must be busy because people are trying to register for this promotion?

    Website just worked for me.

  • uofm_boxer2k1

    Another mediocre Hilton Promotion. They are now my 5th choice chain behind Club Carlson, Hyatt, IHG and Marriott. They stopped rewarding loyalty so I stopped providing it…

    • I think that this is ok for a one night weekend stay combined with the Diamond Amenity and double dipping with VS for extra 2K.

  • Fred

    Almost every hotel I regularly sta at is not participating. Maybe they should have listed the participating hotels in th US, the list would be shorter. After many years of gold or diamond status with this chain, I really don’t feel appreciated.

    • You could contact the hotels that have decided not to participating to voice your displeasure. Hotels need to pay extra for Hilton HHonors for these promotions and some have decided not to participate.

  • Raymond

    Totally agreed. HHonour is not longer value their gold and diamond member. Promotion was not shown clearly when you do the booking via their website. Registration via website not working for a few days. Need to register before check out day to enjoy the double point, other hotel allow you to enjoy the promotion even you registered later.

    • You only have to register before your stay not before you make your reservation. IMHO Hilton’s program is still ok.
