Hilton Honors has given us plenty of advance warning of the promotion that it will run between September 7th and December 31st, 2021.
As might be expected, the promotion offers double points to all, with triple points available to those lucky enough to still have a Hilton Honors Platinum Barclaycard, who use their card to pay for the stay.
Hilton Honors regulars are surely well aware that they earn 10 points per US dollar spent pre-tax, so currently about 13.5 point per £1. As a result, a double points promotion means that they can earn roughly ~27 points per £1.
A Hilton Diamond member with a Hilton Barclaycard could earn about 54 Honors Points per £1 (40 Honors Points per $1) during this promotion, which is a very healthy return.
Unfortunately, a Hilton Honors point is one of the least valuable of the major hotel chains – so you will need many tens of thousands for an award night at an attractive hotel. However, if you commit to the whole Hilton ecosystem, then you will also earn a huge number of points on paid stays. But for those of us who aren’t so committed, a double points promotion is rather weak…
