I published a post yesterday regarding the lack of hotel chain promotions for the autumn. Instinctively I knew I was tempting fate and some hotel chain would announce a promotion before, or shortly after, that post went live. And so one did… Hilton Honors has announced a promotion that will run from 10 September, 2018 until 3 January, 2019.
Called ‘Moments Made Bigger’, the base of the promotion is…. wait for it… double points?!?!?!
The “triple points” element of the promotion applies to 243 Hilton Honors properties worldwide that are deemed to be “resort and luxury”. The luxury element is fairly straightforward – Conrad and Waldorf Astoria hotels. I’m not sure if Hilton Honors has a formal definition of “resort”, so you’ll just have to check the list of participating properties to be sure…
As always, only base points are doubled or tripled, meaning that members will earn an additional 10 / 20 points per US dollar spent pre-tax.
Even though the new status bonuses don’t have any impact on this bonus promotion, it’s worth reminding readers what you now earn:
I use a simple 0.5 US cent valuation for an Honors point, which means that a Gold member earns a 9% rebate and a Diamond member earns 10%.
This Double Points promotion accordingly works out to an additional 5% of rebate, 10% at resorts / luxury. Nice to have, but not mattress run worthy or worth going out of your way… As always, don’t forget to visit the Avios e-store to earn some Hilton “cashback”.

I had been hoping for a stay-based promotion, as that would stack nicely with the 2,500 Lufthansa miles per stay promotion. Instead, the big winners from this promotion are those business travellers who stay at luxury hotels in expensive cities…
