Now Hilton joins Starwoord, InterContinental Hotels Group, and Marriott (both miles and points based) by announcing their promotion for the first quarter of 2012. Hyatt’s promotion is still unclear at this point but would expect an announcement in the next ten days.
The promotion is called “More Points”. You will get 1000 bonus points per night during the promotional period from January 1st to March 31st, 2012. For two nights weekend stays you will receive an additional 5000 bonus Hilton HHonors points. Based on the terms and conditions that Hilton has published on their website, it appears that the weekend nights are defined as Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Sunday appears to be excluded from the 5000 Hilton HHonors bonus points promotion. I hope to be wrong, however.
You need to register for this promo before your stay at HHonors.com/MorePoints. It makes sense to check that the property you are intending to stay at is not on the non-participating hotels list. You can find these non-participating hotels at http://hhonors1.hilton.com/en_US/hh/landing/excluded_hotels_q1/index.do.
