Hilton Honors launched in January a global promotion called Points Unlimited, which validity has now been extended for the second time through September 7, 2020 (was going to end fist on May 3 and then May 31).
Members earn 2,000 bonus for each stay + an additional 10,000 points for every ten nights consumed during the promotional period.
You can sign up for this promotion on Hilton’s website here.
Note that the 2,000 bonus points for each stay have traditionally also applied for award stays.
Here’s how Hilton counts the points (per their examples):
Example A: An Honors member stays 5 times for a total of 10 nights in March.
- Member earns a total of 20,000 Bonus Points with the promotion.
- The member earned 10,000 Bonus Points for their 5 stays (2,000 Bonus Points per stay) and received the 10,000 Bonus Point award for achieving 10 Nights.
Example B: An Honors member stays 3 times with a total of 11 nights in March. This same member then stays 4 times with a total of 9 nights in April.
- Member earns a total of 34,000 Bonus Points with the promotion.
- The member earned 14,000 Bonus Points for their 7 stays (2,000 Bonus Points per stay).
- The member also received the 10,000 Bonus Point award once for staying at least 10 nights in March.
- Since the member had 1 additional night over the 10 night threshold requirement in March, this 1 night can be used toward earning their next 10,000 Bonus Point award.
- The member used this extra night with the 9 nights in April to earn the 10,000 Bonus Point award again.
Example C: An Honors member stays 1 time with a total of 20 nights in March.
Member earns a total of 22,000 Bonus Points with the promotion.
The member earned 2,000 Bonus Points for their 1 stay (2,000 Bonus Points per stay).
Since the member achieved the 10 night threshold twice during their single stay, the member will earn the 10,000 Bonus Point award twice for a total of 20,000 Bonus Points.
I know that most in Europe and North America cannot travel at the moment, but things are slowly getting back to normal in some countries here in Asia where I have stayed for an extended period.
Good that Hilton has decided to launch this offer now through early September (second extension). The Covid-19 should have settled a bit by then. This must be the longest-running bonus points promotion from Hilton ever.
