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 easy to use, as there’s no minimum stay or night requirement: all stays will be eligible at all Hilton properties. It’s not a terribly exciting promotion, though.

The 2,500 points/stay are better than nothing, worth about $10 based on current Reasonable Redemption Values. On short, cheap (or award) stays, $10 could be like getting 8-10% back. For longer or more expensive ones, it’s a drop in the bucket. Ok, maybe two drops.

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 anyone change any stays though.

Hilton has a different way of accounting for points. Was confused as I didn’t see my points from this promotion initially, even though reps said they were on my account. Booked with pts and for this promotion, it appears the points were applied against the booking.

After logging into Hilton.com; go to activity tab.
Can then see breakdown by going to past 6 months and checking previous stays. Find stay in question and look for \/ to far right of stay. There it will break down pts used, plus promotional points earned via stay(had parking charges on mine too).

Was looking for a line item with promotional points applied, like my Hilton credit card shows monthly.

Only wish I would have noted points balance before/after stay and/or kept reservation receipt a bit longer. So much for keeping records 6-8 weeks after stay per promotional terms.


Kind of disappointing, considering how lucrative some of their bonuses in the past have been.

Once, when I had a 2-week stay at the WA Maldives, they had a triple-points promos (on stays of 3+ days), which effectively added an additional 20x points per $. In combination with base points, Diamond Status and using an Aspire card, this had us earning me 54x points per dollar (even though the stay was on points, we were still getting 54x points back on boat transfers, food/beverage/incidentals/etc). That promo earned me an extra +80k pts.

I have a similar-length points stay at Zemi Beach house in a month, on which this will earn me… a pitiful 2k pts.

I guess I shouldn’t complain… that Zemi Beach House stay has 2x stacked Amex offers (link and link), and we will also be utilizing 2023 and H1 2024 Aspire resort credits on 2 separate Aspire cards via some strategic prepayments in 2023, for a total of $1250 in credits. But it would have been nice to get even more points back on all of that credited free spend.

Planning to have an expensive seven night stay… and that may actually be the only one in Q1. So not a great bonus for me.
