    I am not sure just how "new" this promo is, for a couple of reasons: (a) I just went to register and got this message:

    upload_2015-1-14_9-23-20.png

    and (b) I must have registered well before July of last year because I got bonus points for this very promo for my first stay at Conrad Hong Kong June 28 - July 6, 2014 (2000 points), and for my second stay at the same property just 3 days ago on Jan 11, 2015 (3000 points):

    LRM Brand Promo Points.png

    Those two earnings are exactly what the promo says one would earn for the first and second stays. One more stay at a Conrad or W=A would be my third, which would earn me 5000 points for a total of 10,000. I am, in fact, planning a stay at Conrad HKG in June so I will almost definitely earn the 10K max points.

    In short, this promo is not new. It looks like it has simply been reissued and, importantly, it is targeted. From the T&C on the registration site:
    • * Offer is valid for recipient of this email only and is non-transferable. Offer valid for stays completed between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2015 (“Promotional Period”) at participating Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts or Conrad Hotels & Resorts. Your stays need not be completed consecutively; stays completed are accumulated throughout the Promotional Period. However, an HHonors member that checks out and back into the same hotel on the same day will not receive credit for completing multiple stays. Hilton HHonors™ members may earn 2,000 Bonus Points for a completed first stay, 3,000 Bonus Points for a completed second stay, and 5,000 Bonus Points for a completed third stay during the Promotional Period. Bonus Points earned on Base Points do not count toward Elite tier qualification. Please allow six to eight weeks from completion of any stay for points to appear in you HHonors account. Offer is not transferable and cannot be combined with other select offers.
    This "new" promo is clearly a reissue of an already running promo but only to selected people...

    Is there someone that had signed up and stayed 3 times in 2014 and received the 2000, 3000 and 5000 points and now had a stay in 2015 to get again 2000 points etc.? I received my 10000 total in 2014 and would not mind doing so again in 2015 IF I get all these points... Anyone stayed in 2015?

    I got the 10,000 points in 2014 too.
    Will be staying in about a month's time.

    But based on @NYCUA1K's points postings which crossed over from 2014-2015 (i.e. 1st stay in 2014 and 2nd stay in 2015), I am afraid my next stay is the 4th stay under this promotion and will not count.

    The 2,000 points per night bonus I read is still valid though.

    Again, I will have to stay and report back.

    Have you tried registering? If it lets you register then I do not see why you would not earn the points again. In fact, that may give some clues about the relation of this reissue to the original promo...

    For me... both the 3 stays promo and the 2,000 per night promo returns this message.

    Can you register again or does it say that you already registered. If the latter, then it would be your 4th stay and you would very likely earn no points...

    Aha! The 3 stays and the 2,000/nite are the same promo. I think that you would probably not earn any points because your next stay would be your 4th. Please post about you experience...

    After further investigation, I believe that there are indeed two promos: the 3-stay/10K bonus promo and the 2000 bonus points/nite promo and they are both running concurrently. Those who registered last year are automatically re-registered or continue to be registered. This means that the current promo is an extension of last year's. I had not noticed this before but I did get the 2000 points for my recent one-night (Jan 10-11, 2015, i.e. 4 days ago) AWARD stay at Conrad HKG:

    CONHKG.png

    Therefore, one would get the points for the 2K/nite promo for sure. The remaining question is: Would those who already got 10K for the 3-stay promo earn any more points?

    Please post your experience...

    yup, i think it's a 'new' promo in the sense that i belive this was a 2014 promo, but now extended to 2015.

    I think @NYCUA1K would be most likely to test this promo out, given he seems to stay at Hilton properties the most amongst many of the Milepointers :)

    It said: "you are already registered" for myself and my wife. We both did last years 2000-3000-5000 and the separate 2000 points offer. I might wait till I hear back from WilliamQ.

    Wow, wonderful because it is a new promo since I just registered and it did not tell me that I had already registered as it did for the two other Conrad/WA promos from last year, which were recently extended to the end of the year. Since these promos are stackable this means that I am going to earn a bundle at Conrad HKG when I will do an 8-night stay and earn points from all three promos, in addition to the points from the relatively long and pricey stay.;)

    I had also previously registered for this promotion; the system would not let me register again.

    Ok. In 2014, I signed up for both the every night 2,000 points and Up to 10,000 points promotion.
    I completed 3 Conrad stays in 2014 and got the whole 10,000 points (2,000 + 3,000 + 5,000)

    Just had a weekend stay in Conrad Centennial.

    No "reset" of the 10,000 points promotion but the 2,000 points continues to post.

    Thanks for the info, which confirms that the 10K promo does not reset. This means I have one more stay to earn the last 5K points for the 10K promo, which would overlap with the 2K points that you just got points for.

    Kool. :cool:

    Is your next stay at least 2 days?
    If it is, then there might be another 5,000 points.
    I am waiting for the March to come to decide how I want to plan my upcoming stays.
    Most unfortunately, I did not get the 2x and 3x promo you received on top of the 100,000 gift :oops:

    I am not sure if they will get it right and award me the correct number of points for all these concurrent promos, but I am shivering just thinking about it. I have an 8-night stay at Conrad HKG in June. Here are the promo points that I will earn from this stay, at least on paper:

    1. 5K points because this will be the 3rd and final stay of the extended 10K promo.
    2. 2K points/night * 8 nights = 16K points for the 2K points/night promo
    3. 5K points for 5K/2-nite promo you just mentioned

    Now add that to the basic points that I earn with every stay:

    Base points + 0.5*base points [elite bonus] + 0.5 * base points [double dipping] + 1.2 * base points [AMEX Surpass] = 3.2 * base points

    This is will be a relatively pricey stay because it is so long: $3,400 excluding "service charge" (taxes appear to be 0.0, but the "service charge" likely includes it)

    3.2 * 3,400 *10 + 5,000 + 16,000 + 5,000 = 134,800, excluding points from 'service charge' on the AMEX (x12) + incidentals... At least on paper...:)

    Also I received the 2x/3x on top of the 100K and have 2 relatively long stays during that promo period...

    This may be the year I top 1MM HHonors points...

    Thanks for letting us know. Will stay away from Conrad and WA and focus on the Hyatt promo insteadt. March 1st will be the starting date for the next global HH promotion. Look forward to see what that one looks like.
