Registered HHonors members will earn 2,500 HHonors Bonus Points per stay during the Promotion Period. A "stay" is defined as the total number of consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, whether or not a guest checks out and checks back in again. Registered HHonors members will only receive Bonus Points for stays completed during the Promotion Period regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the Promotion Period ends.

    Thanks I though for once I could use this but maybe not since my stay starts on the 30th...

    But maybe you will if it spills beyond December 1, which would be during the promo period. I am in a similar situation with a stay at the Drake in Chicago, which starts on the 11/29 but I will check out on 12/02. We'll see...

    Ah, that could be a problem, because none of your nights would be during the promo period. Come to think of it, I would be checking out on 12/02 so that I too may not get any points since only one night (12/01) may count. However, I will still have 3 stays of at least 2 nights between 12/01 and 12/31 so that I should get at least 7,500 points out of this promo...

    It was unclear whether or not this would happen, but my stay at The Drake in Chicago 11/29- 12/02 (checking out on 12/02 so that only one night, 12/01, was fully within the promo period) earned me this 2,500 bonus.

    The T&C stated that "Registered HHonors members will only receive Bonus Points for stays completed during the Promotion Period regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the Promotion Period ends."

    Because I got the points with just one night fully within the promo period, my generous interpretation of the rule is that a stay of 2 nights or more which is completed during the promo period may earn this bonus. If that is the case, then you too should earn the bonus.

    Thanks was the bonus its own line or in the total for the stay? My stay posted as 9,205 points and 298 miles. For two nights at a total cost of ~$298. Honestly I've not had a paid Hilton stay for as long as I remember so I don't know how those stay points are calculated but 9,205 seems like it could have two stays bonus points in it. I now see that two day stay credited for two nights and 2,980 Base Points, so I'd guess anything above that is bonus points?

    That's it. You got the 2500 bonus points as the "winter bonus."

    Wow! It seems that I just got an early Xmas present that keeps on giving!

    On my way from the trip above where I stayed at The Drake in ORD back to LGA, my UA flight got diverted to IAD due to a mechanical problem that would have made tough to land at LGA. Because we landed at IAD in late evening, UA could not rebook us on another flight to LGA that night, so we were issued vouchers to stay at Hilton Dulles overnight and take an early flight the next morning to LGA.

    Then, as soon as we landed at LGA the next morning, I got a text message (everyone who got diverted did) from UA apologizing for the inconvenience caused by the diversion to IAD and inviting us to visit a website where we could select a token of appreciation, which was either 6,250 RDMs or $125 good toward the purchase of any ticket (I selected the miles). That was the first gift...

    Then, as a result of the discussion here, I just visited my HHonors account and noticed that, not only did I get full HHonors points and night/stay credit for the one-night stay at Hilton Dulles, which was paid for with the UA voucher, I got bonus points for the TRIPLE YOUR TRIP promo...twice!

    upload_2015-12-6_15-8-26.png

    Notice that the TRIPLE YOUR TRIP points first posted with the rest of the points for the stay [UA voucher = $67; incidentals = $25; total = $92 for a 920 base; the bonus was thus 920 or 2x for a weekday]; and then a day later (12/04) I got 5,000 HH points for "2015 TRIPLE YOUR TRIP PLUS OFFER", which must have been the property's "discretionary" bonus points because there is no way to get 5,000 points by doubling or even tripling my spend during this stay, and I had already gotten the bonus points for the TRIPLE MY TIP promo! ;)
