Hilton has a small-but-useful promotion for new members – earn up to 7,500 bonus Hilton points after 2 stays. New members who sign up through the link on the dedicated landing page for this promotion will earn 2,500 bonus Hilton points after their first stay and 5,000 bonus Hilton points after their second stay. For a stay to count toward this promotion, the new member must check out on or before December 31, 2019.
New members must enroll in Hilton Honors through the dedicated landing page for this promotion, which you can access here:
- Hilton Honors: New Member Promo – Earn up to 7,500 Points After 2 Stays
Full terms and conditions are included at the bottom of the landing page. In addition to those we’ve already noted, key T&Cs include:
- You must enroll before completing your stay for the stay to count toward the promotion
- Consecutive nights completed at a single hotel will be counted as a single stay, even if booked under multiple reservations
- Offer valid one-time only
There does not seem to be any requirement in the T&Cs that the qualifying stay must be a paid stay. Thus, it seems like award stays would count toward the promotion. It’s possible that new members might have points to use for an award stay if they signed up for an Amex Hilton co-branded credit card or if they took advantage of Hilton Honors’ points pooling feature.
At our baseline value of 0.5 cents per Hilton point, the 2,500-point bonus for the first stay would be worth about $12.50, and the 5,000-point bonus for the second stay would be worth about $25.00. That gives the new member promotion a total potential value of about $37.50. It’s not life-changing by any means, but it’s a nice little kicker for a new member to earn more points off the bat.
In addition, the bonus points from this promotion will stack with normal Hilton points-earning and any other promotions, including Hilton’s current summer promotion, double base points starting with your second stay. This summer promotion runs through September 8, 2019. And in recent times, Hilton has been good about running worldwide promotions back-to-back, so we’re expecting a new promotion to be announced soon and start as soon as September 9 (hopefully!).
If you’re ready to sign up with Hilton, be sure to sign up for this promotion to help jump-start your points earning!
