When it comes to hotel chains, Hilton is probably one of my favourites as they offer good recognition of my Diamond status. While their points might not be the most valuable, earning them can happen fast when you keep track of the many points boosting promotions on offer. On the side of redeeming, there is some real value to be had for ultra expensive Hilton hotels. (Personally I’m saving up my points for a stay at the new Waldorf Astoria Maldives which opens in March 2019).
Hilton Points Unlimited 2019
Hilton Honors have just started promoting their latest offer called “Points Unlimited” which launches this Friday. Members who register (and it’s essential that you remember to register) will earn 2,000 bonus points for each stay they complete through May 5th + 10,000 bonus points for every 5 stays or 10 nights (whichever comes first).
Keep in mind that points redemptions also qualify for these promotions and earn points, so it’s a nice little bonus.
If you are completing a minimum of 5 stays or 10 nights within the promo period you essentially earn 4,000 Hilton Honors points per night; which is excellent and of course that’s on top of what you will already earn + any status bonuses that may apply.
January 4, 2019, through May 5, 2019
What if I already booked a stay prior to this promo?
You’re in luck. As long as you register via this promo page before completing your stay, you will also get the bonus points.
5 stays vs. 10 nights
The 10,000 bonus points get awarded for each 5th stay (that would be 5 different bookings) or 10th night (10 consecutive nights at 1 property). It doesn’t matter which comes first. However, it’s very likely that the 5 stays would work out cheaper so if you really wanted to hack this promo I would book 10 separate stays in a row if that happened to be your situation (where you needed to stay at 1 hotel for 10+ nights that is). The hotel will probably be confused, but I’m sure they would understand the situation. This would result in earning 20,000 points as the counter will reset after the first 5 stays.
Do you have to register to get the bonus?
Yes, no registration = no points. You can register via this URL https://www.hiltonhonors.com/pointsunlimited
Not a Hilton Honors member yet?
If you’re not already registered as a Hilton Honors member, you can do so via the promotion page before completing your stay, in which case you will also earn the bonus points.
Which Hilton Honors brands are participating in the promotion?
Except for all Hampton by Hilton hotels in China, all Hilton brands are participating in the promotion: Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Curio Collection, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Embassy Suites, DoubleTree by Hilton, Hilton Grand Vacations, Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Home2 Suites, Hampton by Hilton, Tru by Hilton, Tapestry Collection by Hilton and LXR Hotels and Resorts.
Terms & Conditions.
As always, make sure you read the terms and conditions of these promos as some rates are excluded.
Offer valid for stays completed 4 January 2019 through 5 May 2019 (“Promotion Period”) at any hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio excluding Hampton by Hilton Hotels in Mainland China. Hilton Honors members must first register at HiltonHonors.com/PointsUnlimited/gb prior to completing a stay within the Promotion Period.
Registered Hilton Honors members will only receive bonus points for nights completed during the promotion period, regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the promotion period ends. Registered Hilton Honors members will earn 2,000 bonus points per stay during the Promotion Period, as well as an additional 10,000 bonus points for every 5th stay completed or every 10th night completed, whichever comes first.
There is no limit to the total amount of bonus points that may be earned during the promotion period with this offer, and the 10,000 bonus points award can be earned an unlimited number of times. Each time a member achieves 5 stays or 10 nights, 10,000 bonus points will be awarded and the member’s stay/night count will reset. Additional nights earned over the 10 night threshold in a stay will count towards achieving the member’s next 10,000 bonus point award. For examples and further details, please see the FAQ page. However, there are restrictions on the number of base points that can be earned on a single stay at certain brands.
