Hilton's New Promotion: Double or Triple Points
Hilton has dubbed its next systemwide promotion "Triple Your Trip."
That's in spite of the fact that the majority of the nights during the promotion period only earn double points. So much for truth in advertising.
The lapse in business ethics notwithstanding, the promotion does have its strong points.
Between August 1 and October 31, HHonors members can earn double base points for weekday stays and triple base points for weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday nights) stays at participating Hilton-family hotels.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
Double points won't be a difference-maker for most travelers, but triple points might be.
The promotion's three-month duration is a positive.
The list of non-participating hotels had not been published at press time, so it's unclear how much of a negative that will be for the promotion. Hilton significantly degraded its February bonus offer by excluding around 325 properties in the U.S. alone. So be sure to confirm your hotel's participation before factoring this bonus into your travel planning.
