Hilton HHonors is about to launch their next promotion “Triple Your Trip” that is valid for stays between July 9 and September 30, 2013. You will receive double Hilton HHonors points for stays on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights and triple points for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
Edit (July 9): The registration for this promotion is now open and I have the list of non-participating properties available. See: Hilton HHonors Q3 2013 Promotion: “Triple Your Trip” Registration Now Open By Phone
The registration for this promotion is required and you can do it at HHonors.com/Triple, once Hilton has the website up. There are properties that have opted out from this promotion, but I don’t have the list available yet.
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.
This is exactly the same promotion that Hilton HHonors had in 2012. I think that they could have been bit more creative.

What does Double and Triple Points mean?
For the Triple Your Trip promotion “Double Points” means you will receive a bonus equal to the number of Base Points earned on the average nightly folio for qualifying Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. “Triple Points” means you will receive a bonus equal to twice the number of Base Points earned on the average nightly folio for qualifying Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Bonus Points earned on Base Points do not count toward tier qualification. Please allow 6-8 weeks from completion of your stay for the Bonus Points to appear in your HHonors account.
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.
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
