Hilton is offering a way for Amex Hilton cardholders to cash in on extra rewards this summer. From July 1 to July 31, card holders enrolled in the current Hilton Honors’ Double Points Promotion will automatically receive Triple Hilton Honors Bonus Points per stay.
If you have not registered for the promotion you can do that here.
Eligible Amex cardholders
This triple the points offer is eligible to Hilton Honors members with one or more of the following cards:
- Hilton Honors American Express Card
- Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card
- Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card
- Hilton Honors American Express Business Card
Some of these cards have fantastic limited time offers running that you probably want to check out if you haven’t already.
If you don’t have any of those cards you’ll still earn double the points on your stays but if you have a card like the Hilton Aspire you can really cash in on your rewards in a big way.
For example, if you use your Amex Hilton Aspire card during the month of July, your rewards earning could look like this:
- 20X per dollar based on Hilton Diamond Status
- 14X on Hilton purchases with the Aspire card
- 20X Hilton points with triple the points
That’s 54 Hilton Honors points per dollar spent! At a value of .45 cents per point, that’d be a total of a 24.3% return on your spending with Hilton which is pretty outstanding.
The double the points offer will be valid for stays completed May 1, 2018, through August 31, 2018.
Triple the points for the month of July is a solid offer for anyone planning on making Hilton stays. I don’t think I’d make plans to stay at Hilton property just for the sake of the promotion but it could be worth going with Hilton over other properties if you already have July travel plans.
