Hilton: Double Points Promotion September 9th – January 5th (Triple Points For American Express Hilton Cardholders)

Update 8/26/19: Registration is now working.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Hilton has launched it’s latest promotion for all stays from September 9th until January 5th. Promotion is as follows:
    • Double points on all stays (for non American Express Hilton cardholders)
    • Triple points on all stays (for American Express Hilton cardholders when using that card)

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid for stays completed September 9, 2019, through January 5, 2020 (“Promotion Period”) at any hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio.
  • Hilton Honors™ members must first register at HiltonHonors.com/PowerUp prior to completing a stay within the Promotion Period.
  • You must check out on or prior to January 5, 2020 to be eligible for this offer.
  • Registered Hilton Honors members checking in before September 9, 2019 will receive credit for their stay if the stay is completed on or after September 9, 2019 and prior to or on January 5, 2020.
  • Registered Hilton Honors members will earn Double Hilton Honors Bonus Points per stay during the Promotion Period or Triple Hilton Honors Bonus Points per stay during the Promotion Period for using a Hilton Honors Credit Card.
  • “Double Points” means you will receive a bonus equal to the number of Base Points earned during a stay.
  • “Triple Points” means for each dollar spent using your Hilton Honors Credit Card on stays at a property within the Hilton portfolio during the Promotion Period, you will receive a bonus equal to twice the number of Base Points earned during a stay.
  • Hilton Honors Credit Cards include: Hilton Honors American Express Card, Hilton Honors American Express Surpass Card, Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card, Hilton Honors American Express Business Card, Hilton Honors Visa Classic Sumitomo Card, Hilton Honors Visa Gold Sumitomo Card, Hilton Honors Visa Platinum Sumitomo Card, Barclaycard Hilton Honors credit card and DKB German.
  • For examples and further details, please see the FAQ page. There is no limit to the total amount of Bonus Points that may be earned during the Promotion Period with this offer.
  • However, there are restrictions on the amount of Base Points that can be earned on a single stay at certain brands.

Our Verdict

This is a somewhat interesting promotion, especially if they continue to offer an increased rate for cardholders for future promotions as it could change the value proposition for keeping certain Hilton cards. That being said for most people this promotion is just very plain, double points is never enough to get me to even consider changing bookings whereas something like the IHG accelerate offers can be. It’s hard for hotel chains to find the right balance, but I don’t think this type of promotion is it. As always you need to register, so you might as well just in case you do end up staying at a Hilton hotel.

Lrdx

I don’t see anything in the offer terms you need to *use* the AmEx card for this offer, you only need to be a cardholder.

Lrdx

Eh, after registration, the message tells me I need to use the card.

Do you have to click this link? or if you login to the HH portal will you see it under offers?

54 points per dollar spent (with Aspire) is simply terrific.

another 4% back through Retail Me Not as well

It says that you get double/triple “base” points. I doubt that they’ll give double/triple “bonus” points from cc spend.

3x points + diamond bonus + credit card rewards

Roger

Might want to double check your math haha. 10 base points*3 + 10 diamond bonus + 14 credit card point = 54 points

Got it

So, if I’m Gold and paying with Surpass, would that be 50 points then?

I think 52 cause surpass is 12 points per $ as I recall

How are you making the aspire worthwhile now that it’s much harder to utilize the airline credits?

Lrdx

Free night + $250 resort credit is still easy to use. Of course the resort credit is really a hit or miss.

Roger

Unless they kill the new method, I still find the credit useful personally although I do understand it’s no longer a valid benefit for a lot of people.

The link did not work for me. However, I was able to register after logging in to the Hilton Honors website and clicking the View Promotions link at the top of the screen. The offer was available under eligible offers. After registering, the offer does show in the active offers tab even through it does not start until 9/9.

I used this link for the login: https://secure3.hilton.com/en/hh/customer/login/index.htm

I signed up via Doc’s link posted here. Did anyone get an email confirmation after enrolling?

Just wanna triple check that I am good to go and Hilton doesn’t try to get out of this by claiming that I didn’t register or something like that AFTER I complete the stay.

Works as of today (8-26-19). Heck of an offer! Hilton is doing a far better job than Marriott.

With all the points they are giving out, hopefully they don’t devalue the points soon.
