Hilton Honors has released details of its chain-wide promotion for Summer 2022. The promotion will run from May 2nd until September 5th, 2022. (check-out dates)

As is standard with Hilton Honors, during the summer you can earn double/triple points.  With “More Nights, More Points”, you can earn:

  • Double points for stays of 1 or 2 nights
  • Triple points for stays of 3+ nights

Is this promotion any good?

Hilton Honors members earn 10 points per US dollar spent. Each Hilton point is (charitably) worth 0.5 cents each.

As a result, you would earn:

  • an extra 10 points per US dollar spent for stays of 1-2 nights –> an extra rebate of 5%
  • an extra 20 points per US dollar spent for stays of 3+ nights –> an extra rebate of 10%

A promotion that gives you an extra 10% rebate is pretty decent. But a Diamond member can do even better. For a 3-night stay at a Hilton hotel costing $200 per night pre-tax, a Diamond member would earn:

  • 1,000 points as a welcome amenity
  • 6,000 base points
  • 6,000 tier bonus points
  • 12,000 bonus points

That 3-night stay would earn a Diamond member 25,000 Hilton points worth $125. If you have the Aspire credit card, you would earn an extra 14 points per $ on top –> 8,400 points for this example…

Bottom line

2022 is following the standard pattern for Hilton promotions. The first promotion offered “points per stay” – great for travel hackers and/or award stays.

The summer promotion rewards those members who are taking long, expensive vacations…
