I wrote quite recently about a targeted Hilton Honors status challenge offer, where you could get Gold status after just 2 stays. Hilton also regularly sends out targeted ‘winback’ bonus Points offers to members who haven’t stayed for a while – but these offers tend to be sent by email. I was therefore surprised to spot something interesting from Hilton Honors in the post recently…
The other side of the card contained an offer for 10,000 bonus Honors Points, after completing 2 stays by the end of August:
It seems like a pretty good offer, so I tried to find the terms and conditions to see whether Points stays would count or not. Unfortunately, the best I could find was the line at the bottom saying “Terms and conditions may apply”, which isn’t hugely helpful.
I logged in online to see if the offer could be seen on the account, but there is no sign at all of it in the “My Offers” section there.
The text on the card says that “There’s no registration required. Just book your next stay at Hilton.com or through the Hilton Honors app”. That sounds simple enough, but I’d be a bit happier if there were some actual terms provided somewhere, or at least a mention of the offer on the Hilton Honors account.
I value 10,000 Hilton Honors Points at about £40, so the bonus is effectively offering £20 back for each of the 2 stays, which is a pretty good additional rebate, on top of cashback and standard Points earnings. I’ll probably give it a spin, but won’t be surprised if actually getting the Points turns out to be a bit of a struggle.
Anyway, the moral of the story is to take a quick glance at your junk mail before you get rid of it – occasionally there might be something actually worth reading.
Have you received one of these offers? More importantly, has anyone completed the offer and actually got the bonus Points?
