Select members have received a somewhat cryptic email from Hilton that promises 10,000 Honors points for merely clicking a link.
Hilton appears to be sending these Thank You Gifts to “random” members, so better check your email inbox to see if you received one.
You can access this offer on Hilton’s website here.

No luck with me!
Hilton Thank You Gift Email:
The email includes a red box with a “CLICK HERE,” and it looks exceptionally dodgy. If someone promises you free points for clicking a link, always check the email address where the communication was sent.
Text on the email:
We have been delighted to welcome you and so many other guests back to our hotels in recent months. It’s been wonderful to serve you once more, and on behalf of all of us at Hilton, I want to say a huge thank you for your continued trust — and for choosing to stay with us time and time again.
As a token of our appreciation for your loyalty and patience — particularly as we have all adjusted to a unique summer travel season — please accept 10,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points on us. Just click the button below to instantly claim your Points.
As travel returns and we reconnect with the people and places we love, our teams are more committed than ever to offering you the friendly, reliable experiences you’ve come to expect from Hilton — as well as the safety and flexibility you need. We hope to welcome you back to one of our more than 6,600 hotels around the world soon. Until then, here’s to new memories.
The points deposit is instantaneous.
Hilton is not the first loyalty program that offers surprise points or miles to few members out of the blue. Perhaps they are testing how a random points deposit will affect the booking behavior of these select guests?
A reader who forwarded this to us had had around five stays this summer, each for a night.
