Hilton Honors has now launched their Points Unlimited-promotion for stays between January 1 – April 1, 2018.
Members can earn 2,000 bonus points for each stay consumed during the promotional period and 10,000 bonus points for every five stays. There is no limit on number of bonus points earned.
You can access and register for this promotion on Hilton’s website here.
Note that Hampton Inn hotels in China are not Hilton Honors participating.
Award stays are eligible too as long as you have incidental charge on the folio. Following Hilton brands where incidental charges are not qualifying spend are not eligible for bonus when on awards: Hampton Inn, Tru, Home2 Suites and Homewood Suites.
If you prorate these two offers of Points Unlimited-promotion and have exact number of stays (5/10/15), you would earn 4,000 bonus points per stay that is actually very good for short and not very expensive stays.
Stay based bonus promotions have traditionally also posted for awards. I would assume that this would be case with this offer as well.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Offer valid January 1, 2018, through April 30, 2018 (“Promotion Period”) at any hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio excluding Hampton by Hilton Hotels in Mainland China.
