Eagle eyed EU blog You Have Been Upgraded noticed that Hilton has put up an FAQ page for their new and not quite yet announced Fall promotion, offering double points and double elite night credits.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

The registration link is now live and you must register by September 8th.

More exciting about this promotion is that you’ll recall that Hilton also launched a promotion whereby All Hilton Elite Nights Earned This Year Will Also Count Next Year. Of course, if you have a Hilton Aspire credit card, the elite nights are relevant since that card gives you automatic top-tier Hilton Diamond status.

 

The “Double Rewards” Hilton Honors promotion

What is the promotion?

Registered Hilton Honors members will earn double Hilton Honors Bonus Points per stay during the Promotion Period as well as double night credits. Double Bonus Points means you will receive a bonus equal to the number of Base Points earned during a stay. Double night credit means one additional, tier qualifying night credit will be awarded for each night stayed in the promo period.

What is the Promotion Period for the “Double Rewards” Hilton Honors promotion?
September 8, 2020 through December 31, 2020 (‘Promotion Period’)

How will the Bonus Points be awarded?

Registered Hilton Honors members checking in before September 8, 2020 will receive double Hilton Honors Bonus Points for their stay if the stay is completed on or after September 8, 2020 and prior to or on December 31, 2020.

Registered Hilton Honors members will receive double night credit for all nights completed in the promotion period, regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the Promotion Period ends. Double nights will count towards Hilton Honors members’ 2020 night count and will be eligible for rollover night credit.

Example A: A Hilton Honors member completes one stay at a Hampton. The stay is two nights long and the member spends $100 per night. The member will earn a total of 4,000 Hilton Honors Points with this promotion on his or her stay. The member will also earn an additional two tier qualifying night credits – bringing the total nights earned on the stay to four.

Base Points Earned (Points you receive during your stay for being a Hilton Honors Member): 10 Points per USD X $100 X 2 Nights = 2,000 Base Points

Promotion Points Earned (Points you receive during your stay for participating in this promotion): 10 Points per USD X $100 X 2 Nights = 2,000 Bonus Points

Example B: A Hilton Honors member checks in on December 30, 2020 but checks out on Jan 2, 2021. Since the stay was completed after December 31, 2020 the member will not receive double Hilton Honors Bonus Points. However, the member will receive two additional tier qualifying night credits for the two nights completed in the promotion period.

*These examples don’t include Elite Tier Point Bonuses or Hilton Honors Credit Card holder Bonus Points. More information on tiers and the accrual of Points are in the Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions.

If I already have a reservation, is it eligible for the promotion?

If I check-in before September 8, 2020, or check-out after December 31, 2020, do I still earn credit for that stay? 
Registered Hilton Honors members checking in before September 8, 2020 will receive double Hilton Honors Bonus Points for their stay if the stay is completed on or after September 8, 2020 and prior to or on December 31, 2020.

When will the Bonus Points post to my Hilton Honors account?
Please allow 6-8 weeks from the completion of your stay for the Bonus Points to appear in your Hilton Honors account.

Does my incremental spend on things like room service count towards my Bonus Points?
Additional spend on room service or other services charged to the room will count towards earning Bonus Points.

Will I earn Bonus Points for Reward Stays with the “Points Unlimited” promotion?

If I have two room reservations at the same time, do both of those rooms count toward my promotion bonus if I am paying for them both?

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
