Hilton’s latest quarterly promotion is now upon us. It’s a straightforward one this time: you will either earn double Hilton HHonors points or airline miles on stays from 1 March to 31 May 2015 – you can choose which, but you will need to register for the promo.
Hilton ordinarily lets you “double dip” on your points earning: you can either earn Hilton points (and bonus Hilton points), or Hilton points and airline miles. Accordingly, the “doubling up” for this promo works as follows:
Points and points: Standard earning is 10 base points, plus an additional 5 bonus points per eligible US dollar spent. Under the promotion, you will earn 20 base points plus an additional 5 bonus points per US dollar.
Points and miles: Standard earning is 10 Base Points, plus 1 mile per eligible US dollar spent (although some airlines offer more miles). Under the promotion, you will earn 10 base points plus an additional 2 (or more) miles per US dollar.
(Note that base HHonors points are halved at Home2Suites)
Frankly, there’s far more value in the double Hilton HHonors points offer.
The major caveat to this promotion is there is a hefty list of hotels (principally in the United States) who have chosen not to participate.
