Hilton Honors retired the lucrative app booking bonuses at the end of January and introduced one for 500 points that is valid for stays consumed all the way until the end of 2017.
Only reservations that are made using the app are eligible for these bonus points.
You can access and sign up for this offer on Hilton’s website here.
All the hotel chains are trying to push members to use their apps more likely to make price discovery difficult and to push their digital key initiatives.
I don’t mind checking using the app if the room upgrade has been processed but rather book on their full site.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Offer valid February 7, 2017, through December 31, 2017 (“Promotion Period”) at any hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio. Hilton Honors™ members must first register at HiltonHonors.com/AppBonus prior to completing a stay within the Promotion Period. There is no limit to the total amount of Bonus Points that may be earned during the Promotion Period with this offer. However, there are restrictions on the amount of Base Points that can be earned on a single stay at certain brands. See Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions for more details. Bonus Points earned on Base Points do not count toward tier qualification. Please allow six to eight weeks from completion of your stay for points to appear in your Hilton Honors account. Go Hilton Team Member and Family & Friends rates are not eligible for this offer.
