Hilton Honors has a new promotion that starts today: Points Unlimited. The promotion offers an easy 2,500 bonus points on every stay, including paid and award stays, which makes it a good offer if you have upcoming stays that are relatively short or inexpensive.
You’ll earn 2,500 bonus points for each stay completed between January 1 and May 1, 2022, which means you must check out between those dates. You must also register for the promotion before your stay. Bonus points do not count toward elite status, and other rules may apply.
If you don’t already have a Hilton Honors account, there’s also a promotion on the front page of Hilton.com advertising 5,000 bonus points on each of your first two stays when you enroll.
2,500 bonus points per stay isn’t a lot. If you think points are worth about 0.5 cents each, that’s $12.50 per stay. However, with some cheaper hotels charging around 25,000 points a night a better way of thinking about this may be that you can complete 10 stays and get one night free. For more expensive properties charging 50,000 points a night it’s buy 20 stays, get one night free.
As you can see, it really helps those who have lots of short stays rather than a couple of longer stays. Remember that checking in and out of the same hotel on subsequent dates may not be considered separate stays. Frequent business travelers who have many short stays may benefit the most.
