Quick Thoughts

Hilton more or less runs non-stop promotions year-round and this one begins right as the Fall promo ends. This will be extremely easy  to use, as there’s no minimum stay or night requirement: all stays will be eligible at all Hilton properties. The double base points are nice, adding another 4.8% in return based on current RRV’s, but that’s more or less the starting point for most Hilton promos these days.

Let’s say you have a one-night stay during the promotion at a property that costs $150. If you’re a Hilton Aspire cardholder, you’ll earn:

  • 10 points per dollar (base points)
  • 10 points per dollar (bonus points for Diamond status)
  • 10 points per dollar (bonus points from this promotion)
  • 14 points per dollar (bonus points earned by paying with the Aspire card)
  • 1,000 points for the brand bonus (assuming it’s a uique brand)

Grand total: 7,600 or 57 points per dollar.

That represents a hefty 27.4% return. While that’s very good, it’s worth noting that the promotion is at its most valuable on inexpensive, one-night stays when you’re able to stay at multiple brands. The more expensive the property gets, the more diluted the 1,000 point kicker is. For multiple night stays, it’s effectively a straight 10x bonus (or 4.8% if using RRV’s).

If you are planning on staying with Hilton during the first 1/3 of the year, or even if you think there’s a chance that you will, this promotion is certainly worth registering for. It’s probably not enough to make me change any stays though.
