Earn up to 3x Bonus Points on Hilton Stays with New Promotion!
Hilton is out with a new promotion it calls Power Up, offering double points for all Hilton hotel stays from Sept. 9 through Jan. 5, 2020. And if you pay with a Hilton co-branded American Express card, you can earn triple points!
Hilton offers these promotions once or twice a year, and it’s a great way to earn more Hilton Honors points fast. Critically, you can earn these bonus points on reservations you’ve already booked. So long as your stay lands between Sept. 9 and Jan. 5, 2020, it’s eligible. All Hilton properties will trigger the bonus, and there’s no limit to how many bonus points you can earn.
You simply have to register online through Hilton’s promotion page. If you get an error or notice that the promotion has expired, try again later today.
But the best part is that you can stack this promotion with the additional bonus earnings of Hilton status or Hilton co-branded credit cards.
So if you’ve got the Platinum Card from American Express (and therefore Hilton Gold Status, one of the great perks of holding the non-branded card) you’ll earn another 80% more – in addition to the 2x bonus with this promotion and the standard 10x per $1 Hilton Honors points earning. Just keep in mind each of these bonus categories, rather than multiplying on top of each other
So if you book a Hilton stay at $200 for one night, you’d earn 5,600 Hilton Honors Points total – 200 x 10 for the standard earning + 200 x 10 x .8 for your Gold Status + 200 x 10 for the promotional bonus. That works out to a 28x bonus!
If you’ve got the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card – one of our favorite hotel cards – it’s even sweeter, as you earn 14x points per dollar on Hilton bookings. Add in the 3x bonus with this promotion when paying with your Hilton card and the automatic Diamond Status, and you’d earn 10,800 points on the same $200 hotel night – a whopping 54x bonus.
Whether you’ve got a Hilton stay on the books or need to book something in the next 3 1/2 months, get in on this promotion. It’s an easy way to pile up a bunch of extra Hilton points.
