Hilton has an offer to drive Honors sign-ups for its guest loyalty program through December 31, 2021, and I, for the first time, came across a property that was promoting it.
New members will earn 2,000 bonus points for their first and 5,000 for the second stay if consumed within six months of joining Honors.
You can access this offer on Hilton’s website here.
Here’s how the bonus points add up:
- Stay 1: 2,000 bonus points.
- Stay 2: 3,000 bonus points (5,000 cumulative bonus)
There are very few programs that offer new members bonus points, although Marriott Bonvoy throws in a few bonus points.
Remember to take advantage of all other Hilton Honors bonus points opportunities that we cover here on LoyaltyLobby if you are joining now as a member.
