Stacking Hilton Promotions: 52x Per $1 & 5,000 Points Or $70 Discount
Current Hilton Promotions
Currently there are a number of Hilton promotions that you can stack for a big discount and points earning opportunity.
- You can earn triple base points on all properties by booking through the Hilton app. Base rate earning is 10x, so under this promotion you earn 30x Hilton points.
Keep in mind in addition to this 30x base earning you’ll also either receive 5x points if you select points & points earning or airline miles/other travel rewards.
You could also go through a shopping portal and get 20x base points (because you won’t be able to book through the app) plus 6% cash back or 2x American Airline miles + stack with this bonus. Thanks to reader Stephen.
You earn extra miles based on your elite status as follows:
- 1.5x for Silver
- 2.5x for Gold
- 5x for Diamond
Then you’ll want to choose one of the following credit card promotions to use:
- Get A Bonus 5,000 Hilton Points Per Stay When You Pay With Visa
- #AmexHilton: Spend $250, Get $50 Back
- #AmexWAC: Waldorf Astoria & Conrad Hotels Spend $350 Or More & Get $70 Back
Somebody suggest splitting the payment as well, for example putting $25 on a Visa card and then $250 onto an American Express card to get $50 back and 5,000 points. Thanks to the readers in the comments for this suggestion.
Keep in mind that you’ll also earn credit card rewards, best card to use would be:
- Citi Reserve for Visa promotion (10x points per $1 spent)
- American Express Surpass for American Express promotion (12x points per $1 spent)
Basically this is what you’re earning will look like:
- 30x points for booking through the app
- 5x points for selecting points & points
- Up to 5x for elite status
- 5,000 bonus points/$50/$70 discount depending on what payment network bonus you use
- Up to 12x points per $1 spent depending on what credit card you use
This works out to be 52x points per $1 spent, plus 5,000 bonus points per stay or a discount up to $70. But wait, there’s more! They also have another three targeted promotions:
- Up to 10,000 bonus points for staying two nights or more at select brands
- Up to 50,000 bonus points for staying four nights or more
- Up to 25,000 bonus points for staying four nights or more
- Up to 15,000 bonus points for staying four nights or more
