Hilton HHonors are certainly ending the year with a flurry of offers. Promotions currently underway include a double points promotion, or triple points when booking through the App. A new promotion has just come out in conjunction with Visa, offering 5,000 bonus points.
The Hilton Visa promotion
Under the promotion, HHonors members stand to earn an additional 5,000 bonus points when booking through the Hilton HHonors app, and paying with a Visa credit card. The promotion is valid for stays between November 2, 2016, and January 31, 2017. Registration for the promotion is required, and may be done through the link provided above.
One good thing about this promotion is that it is able to be used multiple times during the promotion period. As a result, depending on your stays, you may be able to accumulate quite a handy stash of points between now and January.
The terms do state that this may not stack with other promotion. In my experience, however, if you have registered for multiple promotions they normally all pay out.
Value of the Offer
Hilton HHonors points are not the most valuable points in the world. Generally, I find they are worth around 1/2 cent per point, or just under. On average, then, the 5,000 points is probably worth $20 – $25 in value.
Having said that, I recently redeemed at a rate that gave closer to a full 1 cent per point. On that basis, the promotion will pay about $50 in points value. This is probably an exceptional case, however.
The Terms and Conditions of this promotion are:
Offer is valid from November 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017 for Visa® cardholders who are also Hilton HHonors Members who 1) register for the promotion at HiltonHHonors.com/VisaBonus; 2) download the HHonors mobile application to the cardholder’s mobile device; 3) book a stay through the HHonors mobile application; and 4) pay for the completed stay between November 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017 (“Promotional Period”) with any Visa card will receive 5,000 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points per eligible stay.
