You’ll need to register and stay between September 10, 2018 and January 3, 2019.

And there are still other Hilton promotions going on you can take advantage of!

Hilton Moments Made Bigger Promotion

End date:   January 3, 2019

Travel dates:   September 10, 2018 to January 3, 2019

Important terms & restrictions:

  • You must be a Hilton Honors member
  • You must register for the Moments Made Bigger promotion prior to completing your stays
  • Earn triple Hilton points (10 base points + 20 bonus points) per $1 spent on stays at luxury properties, like Waldorf Astoria Hotels or Conrad Hotels (view full list of qualifying triple points hotels)
  • Earn double Hilton points (10 base points + 10 bonus points) per $1 spent on stays at all other Hilton properties
  • Budget brands like Home2 Suite by Hilton and Tru by Hilton still earn double points, but are limited on the base points you earn.  So these hotel brands will earn 10 Hilton points per $1 spent (5 base points + 5 bonus points)
  • All Hampton by Hilton™ hotels in China are excluded from this offer
  • You can only receive bonus points for nights completed during the promotion, regardless of a check-in date before the promotion begins or a check-out date after the promotion ends
  • Bonus points do not count towards elite tier qualification
  • There is no limit to the total amount of bonus points that may be earned during the promotion

Good Deal or Not:   This is a great deal because there is no cap on the number of bonus points that can be earned.  The dates of the promotion are during popular travel times (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, etc) when many folks will already be traveling.

Folks with elite status at Hilton will still earn their elite status bonus points on top of the bonus points earned for this promotion.  So for example Diamond Hilton members normally earn a 100% bonus over the base points of a hotel stay.  In this case, a Diamond member staying at a luxury Hilton property could earn 40 Hilton points per $1 (10 base points + 20 promotion bonus points + 10 diamond elite status bonus points) during this promotion!

If you have a Hilton credit card, then you can earn even more points because each card offers bonus points when you use the card to book your stay at Hilton.  For example the Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express earns 14 Hilton bonus points per $1 spent at Hilton, which can be applied on top of all the points discussed above.  Since this card earns cardholders automatic Diamond elite status, then using this card at a luxury Hilton property can earn you 54 bonus points per $1 spend (10 base points + 20 promotion bonus points + 10 elite status bonus points + 14 card bonus points)!

This is an incredible promotion for earning a ton of points towards future stays at Hilton.  Hilton cardholders and/or elite status members will continue to earn their bonus points on top of the bonus points offered during this promotion.  For example, an AMEX Hilton Honors Aspire Cardholder that stays at a $300 per night Conrad hotel would earn at total of 16,200 Hilton points per night during this promotion!

Information for the AMEX Hilton Aspire Card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets and has not been reviewed by the card issuer.

Hilton Miles & More Promotion

End date:   October 31, 2018

Travel dates:   August 1 to October 31, 2018

Important terms & restrictions:

  • You must have both a Hilton and Miles & More rewards account
  • You must select the Miles & More program as your “Preferred Travel Partner” within your Hilton loyalty account profile
  • You must register for the deal prior to completing your stays
  • A ‘stay’ is defined as the total number of consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, whether or not a guest checks out and checks back in again
  • Certain types of rates are ineligible for the deal, including wholesale packages, Hilton Club timeshare stays, third party website bookings (like Orbitz, Expedia, etc.), Hilton Grand Vacations Club stays, and more

Good Deal or Not:   The good news is there’s no cap on the number of bonus points you can earn.  These bonus miles are in addition to the Hilton points you’ll earn for your stay.  So the rewards you earn could really add up!  And the terms don’t exclude award stays from the promotion, so it’s likely they’ll count as well!

Miles & More is the frequent flyer program of several airlines, like SWISS & Lufthansa.  But isn’t one a lot of people in this hobby often bother with and you’ll pay hefty fees on Lufthansa award tickets.  But it’s worth noting you can book some partner award tickets online.  And for certain partners, like United Airlines, the fees you pay on award flights are much smaller.

Miles & More miles can be useful if you’re able to collect enough of them.  For example, a one-way coach flight within the US on United Airlines costs 12,000 Miles & More miles.  That’s 500 miles less than what United Airlines charges for those flights (which is normally 12,500 miles one-way).

You can save even more using Miles & More miles for transcontinental Business Class seats on United Airlines.  For example, United Airlines charges 35,000 miles for a Business Class seat between New York (EWR) and Los Angeles.  Whereas if you booked the same flight using Miles & More miles, you’d only pay 17,000 miles.  That’s a BIG savings!

Hat tip:  Head for Points

Hilton Double Points Promotion

End date:   September 9, 2018

Travel dates:  May 1 to September 9, 2018

Important terms & restrictions:

  • You must register for the deal prior to completing your stay
  • You will only receive bonus points for nights completed during the Promotion Period, regardless of if you have a check-in date before the promotion begins or a check-out date after it ends
  • Offer is valid at all Hilton locations except for Hampton by Hilton hotels in mainland China
  • Certain types of rates are ineligible for the deal, including wholesale packages, Hilton Club timeshare stays, third party website bookings (like Orbitz, Expedia, etc.), Hilton Grand Vacations Club stays, and more

Promotion Link:   Hilton Double Points promotion

Good Deal or Not:

Normally you earn 10 Hilton base points per $1 spent at eligible Hilton hotels (5 Hilton base points per $1 spent at Home2Suite by Hilton and Tru by Hilton).  So with this deal you’ll earn double the base points, so 10 to 20 Hilton points per $1, plus the extra bonus Hilton points you’re entitled to if you have Hilton elite status.  And you’ll still earn hotel credit card rewards on top of that!

We see deals like this one from Hilton fairly frequently and they’re worth taking a minute to register for because earning extra points doesn’t hurt.  But Hilton points aren’t the most valuable hotel points, so it’s probably not worth changing your current travel plans to take advantage of just this offer.

However, if it you can stack this deal with the Hilton Lufthansa promotion, that could make it worth a shift in your hotel plans.  There is no limit to the total amount of bonus points you can earn with this promotion. However, there are restrictions on the amount of base points that can be earned on a single stay at certain brands.
