25 Comments

Hilton has today unintentionally released information about is next global bonus opportunity called “Double Rewards.”

Honors members earn both double points and elite qualifying nights for stays between September 8 – December 31, 2020, after registering for this offer.

You can register for this offer on Hilton’s website here (not yet activated).

Honors members earn double points for all stays with a checkout date between September 8 – December 31, 2020.

You earn double elite nights for nights consumed between September 8 – December 31, 2020, regardless of the checkout or check-in date.

Note that these bonus nights (2 nights for every 1 consumed) will roll over to 2021 and count towards milestone bonuses in 2020 (not in 2021).

It is unclear, however, if these bonus nights count towards the lifetime requirement. I have requested clarification from the Hilton, as their FAQs don’t cover this issue.

Milestone Bonus:

You earn 10,000 bonus points for every 10 nights consumed starting at 40 (remember rollover nights don’t count), including awards nights, + you get an additional bonus of 30,000 points (total of 40,000) at 60 nights.

Hilton Honors Milestone Bonuses

All Nights in 2020 Rollover to 2021:

As all elite members have already been extended through March 2022, the nights that are consumed in 2020 are all rollover to 2021, counting towards the elite status earned next year (and counting towards March 2023 expiry).

Conclusion

The registration hasn’t opened yet, but they have pushed the FAQs live. However, they mistakenly few times refer to the current Points Unlimited-promotion that was extended through September 8, 2020.

This bonus offer works for those that have expensive stays (double points) while it also rewards consumed nights through the Milestone Bonuses (that you now can earn twice as fast).

Here are the FAQ’s of Hilton Honors Double Rewards Bonus Promotion:

What is the promotion?

Registered Hilton Honors members will earn double Hilton Honors Bonus Points per stay during the Promotion Period as well as double night credits. Double Bonus Points means you will receive a bonus equal to the number of Base Points earned during a stay. Double night credit means one additional, tier qualifying night credit will be awarded for each night stayed in the promo period.

What is the Promotion Period for the “Double Rewards” Hilton Honors promotion?

September 8, 2020 through December 31, 2020 (‘Promotion Period’)

How will the Bonus Points be awarded?

Registered Hilton Honors members checking in before September 8, 2020 will receive double Hilton Honors Bonus Points for their stay if the stay is completed on or after September 8, 2020 and prior to or on December 31, 2020.

Registered Hilton Honors members will receive double night credit for all nights completed in the promotion period, regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the Promotion Period ends. Double nights will count towards Hilton Honors members’ 2020 night count and will be eligible for rollover night credit.

Example A: A Hilton Honors member completes one stay at a Hampton. The stay is two nights long and the member spends $100 per night. The member will earn a total of 4,000 Hilton Honors Points with this promotion on his or her stay. The member will also earn an additional two tier qualifying night credits – bringing the total nights earned on the stay to four.

Base Points Earned (Points you receive during your stay for being a Hilton Honors Member): 10 Points per USD X $100 X 2 Nights = 2,000 Base Points

Promotion Points Earned (Points you receive during your stay for participating in this promotion): 10 Points per USD X $100 X 2 Nights = 2,000 Bonus Points

Example B: A Hilton Honors member checks in on December 30, 2020 but checks out on Jan 2, 2021. Since the stay was completed after December 31, 2020 the member will not receive double Hilton Honors Bonus Points. However, the member will receive two additional tier qualifying night credits for the two nights completed in the promotion period.

*These examples don’t include Elite Tier Point Bonuses or Hilton Honors Credit Card holder Bonus Points. More information on tiers and the accrual of Points are in the Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions.
