Hilton Honors Promotion for Fall 2022: Earn Double Points on All Stays

Hilton Honors often runs interesting promotions for its members to earn more points.

They’ve just announced their upcoming offer for travel between September 6, 2022 and December 31, 2022. With the “Double Your Stay” promotion, you can earn double points for all stays during the promotional period, as well as an additional 2,000 bonus points if your check-out date is from Monday to Friday.

“Double Your Stay” will follow the “More Nights, More Points” promotion, where you can earn double points on all stays, and triple points on stays of three nights or more, for stays up to September 5, 2022. 

Starting September 6, 2022: “Double Your Stay”

The “Double Your Stay” promotion has a simple structure, which will help bolster your Hilton Honors account balance:

  • Earn double points for all stays completed within the promotional period
  • Earn an extra 2,000 points for stays completed between Monday and Friday

As always, you’ll need to register for the promotion first. After that, you’re eligible to earn an unlimited number of bonus points for stays between September 6, 2022 and December 31, 2022.

If you booked a stay for the promotional period prior to registering for the offer, you’ll still be eligible for double points, and bonus points if you check out during the week. There’s also no minimum length of stay required for this promotion.

Award stays are also eligible. You’ll earn double the points on any incidental spending, as well as 2,000 bonus points if your stay concludes between Monday and Friday.

The “Double Your Stay” promotion isn’t the most exciting offer Hilton Honors has come up with in recent times, but it’s also refreshing to see a hotel having promotions that run seamlessly throughout the year.

Compared to sporadic offers or targeted promos with Marriott Bonvoy, or the relatively consistent quarterly offers from World of Hyatt, Hilton deserves kudos for having blanket offers for all Hilton Honors members throughout the year.

Hilton Honors has many ways to increase the points you’ll earn on bookings and purchases at their properties. The double points only applies to base points; unfortunately it won’t further multiply any bonus points.

With this promotion, if you book at a Hilton property, for every US dollar you spend, you’ll earn:

  • 10 base points as a Hilton Honors member
  • 10 bonus points with the “Double Your Stay” promotion
  • Bonus points for having Hilton Honors elite status:
    • 2 points with Silver status, which you get with the Hilton Honors Card
    • 8 points with Gold status, which you get with the Hilton Honors Surpass Card
    • 10 points with Diamond status, which you get with the Hilton Honors Aspire Card
  • Points earned for using your Hilton Honors credit card at an eligible co-branded property:
    • 7 points for using the Hilton Honors Card
    • 12 points for using the Hilton Honors Surpass Card or the Hilton Honors Business Card
    • 14 points for using the Hilton Honors Aspire Card

That works out to up to 44 Hilton Honors points per dollar spent at Hilton properties, plus an additional 2,000 bonus points if your stay ends between Monday and Friday. At our current valuation of 0.5 (USD) cents per point, you could also view this as a 22% discount on the price of your stay.

Of course, not everyone has the Aspire Card – even with annual credits, it’s a steep annual fee to swallow when you consider other premium cards on the market.

Alternatively, if you have the Canadian-issued American Express Platinum Card and a lower-tier Amex US Hilton credit card, you’ll earn:

  • 10 base points as a Hilton Honors member
  • 10 bonus points with the “Double Your Stay” promotion
  • 8 bonus points for having Hilton Honors Gold status (which you get as an Amex Platinum cardholder)
  • 12 points for using your Hilton Honors Surpass or Business Card at a co-branded property

For a total of 40 Hilton Honors points per dollar spent, that’s equivalent to a 20% discount on your stays, and it’s almost the same rate as you’d get with the Aspire Card.

Because the bonus points are based on the amount you spend, you won’t find any arbitrage opportunities – the more you spend, the more you’ll earn.

The upcoming promotion will also benefit people who make single-night or shorter stays, since there’s no minimum stay requirement. To maximize the promotion, make sure your check-out date falls between Monday and Friday for the extra 2,000 Hilton Honors points.

With returns of up to 22% via this promotion, I’d say this is a decent opportunity to make a cash booking for an upcoming trip during less busy periods where prices may be less than during the summer. Save the points you’ll earn for a future award redemption or for when the active promotions aren’t as favourable.

Saving your points would certainly be a better choice if you’re working towards an aspirational Hilton redemption with a high points cost, especially since Hilton Honors points aren’t as easy to come by as other hotel rewards from a Canadian perspective.

Until September 5, 2022: “More Nights, More Points”

Hilton Honors’s Summer 2022 promotion, “More Nights, More Points”, runs until September 5, 2022. As a reminder, it’s quite a powerful one:

  • Earn double points on paid stays
  • Earn triple points on paid stays of three nights or more

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to activate the promotion first, but once you’ve done that, there’s no limit to the number of bonus points you can earn. You’ll get the bonus points for all stays where the checkout date lands before September 5, 2022.

Similar to the upcoming “Double Your Stay” promo, it’s worth noting that the “More Nights, More Points” promotion isn’t quite as strong as a few other triple-points promotions we’ve seen recently, given the requirement to stay at least three nights. If your stays are only for one or two nights, you’ll only earn a lesser bonus of double points.

With the busy summer travel season coming to a close, be sure to register for the “More Nights, More Points” promotion to beef up your Hilton Honors balance.

Conclusion

Hilton Honors is running a fall promotion for double points on stays of any length, as well as 2,000 bonus points for stays that conclude from Monday to Friday.

You can register now to activate the promotion, and it’ll be valid for stays from September 6, 2022 to December 31, 2022.

There’s no downside to registering for the promotion, and be sure to consider Hilton properties if you have some hotel stays coming up over the fall season.

Meanwhile, if you have a paid Hilton stay planned before September 5, 2022, make sure you register for the current promotion to earn double or triple points, depending on the length of your stay.

    The big question is when are we going to see a Hilton credit card in Canada?
