I just received an email from Hilton announcing their next promotion which will run from April 1 through June 30. You will earn bonus points every night you stay in a hotel – 1,000 points per weekday night and 2,000 points per weekend night.
You must register here PRIOR TO CHECK OUT OF YOUR STAY. A weekend night is defined as Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, except in the Middle East and Africa where a weekend night is defined as Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The good thing is it does not look like any hotels are excluded from this promotion, which is typically not the case with Hilton promotions – so that is great! I personally look this promotion as you’ll earn points regardless of day of the week and length of stay. I also tend to stay at cheaper hotels so a flat bonus works for me. For those that stay on company business in a $400/night hotel room would obviously make out better from a 2x point promo. If you were to live in a Hilton hotel over this time frame you’ll earn a total of 120,000 points. So for the normal person, these bonus points really won’t add up to too much, especially with Hilton points being devalued. But, I will not knock them too much as they are consistent with having promos (unlike some other chains) and free points are always welcomed!
