Hilton is offering a nice bonus when booking a stay at any of its properties in Las Vegas, although it’d be worth comparing rates if you have a AAA and/or AARP membership because in some cases the lower price from those rates could be a better option.
- Earn 7,500 bonus points per stay when staying at Hilton properties in Las Vegas.
- Direct link to offer.
- Book by November 12, 2021 for stays through December 29, 2021.
This has the potential to be a great offer, especially if you’re only booking stays of one night at a time. 7,500 Hilton points can be conservatively valued at $30 and those points are on top of the 2x or 3x points you’ll earn from their latest promotion and any bonus points you’ll earn from status and/or by paying for the stay with a Hilton credit card.
The ‘Make Vegas Yours’ rate doesn’t seem to artificially inflate prices. Instead, it appears to match the Best Available Rate or Flexible Rate, so getting 7,500 bonus points works out very nicely if that’s the rate you’d be booking anyway.
If you have a AAA or AARP membership, or if you’re booking a few weeks ahead of time and don’t mind booking a non-refundable rate, you might do better.
For example, at one randomly chosen Hilton property for a stay tonight, the Make Vegas Yours and Best Available Rate were both $148 per night before the resort fee and taxes. Both the AAA and AARP rates were $24 per night cheaper though. While 7,500 bonus points on that one night stay would still be slightly more valuable, if you were staying for two or more nights you’d be better off booking the AAA or AARP rate.
When booking for dates in the future, choosing a non-refundable rate could achieve something similar. For example, a five night stay at Elara in December could cost $148 per night with the Make Vegas Your promo giving 7,500 bonus points, while choosing the non-refundable rate would only cost $137 per night. That’s $11 per night cheaper, so $55 less across the whole stay before taxes and fees.
In this particular scenario it might still be preferable to book the Make Vegas Yours rate seeing as it’s refundable, but it means the 7,500 bonus points option isn’t a no-brainer.
