Hilton has announced a new promotion for 2021 called “More Nights, More Points.” This is a promotion that can be very lucrative, especially if you end up staying more than two nights on stays. Below, I will break down the offer and show you just how much value you can expect to get from this promotion.
- Earn double the points on stays of one or two nights
- Earn triple the points on stays of three nights or more
Double Points” means members will receive a bonus equal to the number of Base Points earned during a stay.
“Triple Points” means members will receive a bonus equal to twice the number of Base Points earned
- Good for stays May 3, 2021 through September 6, 2021
- Members checking in before May 3, 2021 will receive credit for their stay if the stay is completed on or after May 3, 2021 and prior to or on September 6, 2021.
- If you start a stay in the middle of the promotion period and check-out after September 6, 2021 you will not receive the bonus.
- Make sure that you register here
Let’s say that you stayed at a Hilton hotel for four nights at $100 per night and that you used the Hilton Aspire to book the hotel.
You would earn the following rates:
- 4,000 base points
- 8,000 promo bonus points
- 4,000 elite bonus points
- 5,600 Aspire bonus points
That is a total of 21,600 Hilton Honors points. At a WalletFlo valuation of .52 cents per point, that’s $112.32 in value. For $400 in spend that is 54X (approximately 28% back) which is a nice stack.
New Member Bonus
There is also an additional promotion for new members.
New Hilton Honors members can receive up to 5,000 additional Bonus Points when they sign up for Hilton Honors through December 31, 2021.
New members are eligible to earn 2,000 Bonus Points on their first stay and 3,000 Bonus Points on their second stay within six months of joining the loyalty program.
(This can be combined with other special promotions such as “More Nights, More Points.”)
Fast Track to Hilton Honors Silver Status
With 2021 tier qualifications reduced by 50 percent, travelers can achieve elite Hilton Honors Silver status by completing just one five-night trip, two stays, or by earning 12,500 Base Points at any Hilton hotel.
This is a solid promotion especially if you have plans to stay longer than two nights. Also, if you are a new member you can come out pretty big in terms of value.
