Here’s the question from the reader:

I have a Hilton question. If I book a ‘2X points’ rate stay while registered for ‘power up’, will both 2X and power up be stacked?

Hilton affiliated can offer 2X points rate- that usually shows up on the rate search that double the base points earned. There is a rate premium associated earning these points (could be cheaper to buy them during Hilton’s frequent point sales).

You can combine many Hilton’s promotions that they often have. I have this example from 2014, where I combined four separate offers for a stay at Waldorf Astoria hotel in Panama (read more here).

You have to keep in mind that these bonus multipliers only apply for base points earned. You won’t earn a bonus on bonus.

Here’s an example:

  • $200 night using 2X points rate:
  • 2,000 points (10 points per USD)
  • 2,000 points (2X points rate bonus)
  • 2,000 points (Power Up-bonus)
  • 2,000 points (Power Up HH credit card bonus)
  • 2,000 points (Hilton Honors Diamond-member bonus)
  • 1,000 points (Hilton Honors MyWay Bonus)

11,000 points!

+ you earn additional points from your credit card too.

Here’s rate example for a Hilton in New York:

The double points rate is $17 more expensive than the base one (+ taxes/fees).


These double points rates are intended for business travelers with flexible spending accounts that can earn more points for their stays by booking higher rates.

I have never booked one, but perhaps they make sense for some.
