Hilton Honors has been offering the same global promotion all year, which is valid through September 7, 2020. Well, the details of Hilton Honors' next global promotion, which launches on September 8, have just been leaked.

Of all of the major hotel chains, Hilton Honors is by far the most consistent and generous with promotions. The program constantly offers promotions (typically without even a day gap between them), so that's great for members.

First, let's recap the current promotion, and then we'll talk about what we know so far about the new promotion.

Hilton Honors' Points Unlimited promo (current)

Hilton Honors' current promotion is called " Points Unlimited," and this is the return of a promotion we saw back in 2019. This is valid for stays between January 6 and September 7, 2020. With this promotion you earn:

    t
  • 2,000 bonus points for every stay
  • t
  • 10,000 bonus points after every ten nights

There are a few further things to be aware of:

    t
  • Registration is required prior to the first eligible stay, though previous booked nights qualify, as long as you stay during the promotion period
  • t
  • There's no limit to how many points you can earn
  • t
  • There's no minimum stay requirement
  • t
  • All properties qualify

Personally, I consider this promotion to be less lucrative than some of the double or triple points promotions that Hilton offers, especially if you're not constantly making short stays at inexpensive properties.

Since I value Hilton Honors points at ~0.5 cents each, you're essentially earning a $10 bonus per stay, plus an average of a $5 bonus per night, in increments of 10 nights.

Ultimately Hilton's points earning rates are good, but to me, this doesn't compare to a double to triple points promotion.

Keep in mind that you will always earn bonus points for paying for your stays at a Hilton property with a co-brand Hilton American Express card ( the best credit cards for earning Hilton Honors points) at the following rate:

Hilton Honors is currently offering 2,000 bonus points per stay

Hilton Honors' Double Rewards promo (coming soon)

While registration for the next promotion hasn't yet opened, the FAQs have been published, so we have a sense of what to expect.

With this promotion, Hilton Honors members will earn double bonus points and double elite nights for all stays during the promotion period:

    t
  • The promotion will be valid between September 8 and December 31, 2020
  • t
  • Registration will be required (but registration isn't yet active)
  • t
  • The double elite nights will count towards Milestone Bonuses, fast tracks, and rollover nights

This is a great promotion:

    t
  • At most brands, this means Hilton Honors members will earn 10x bonus Honors points per dollar spent
  • t
  • Hilton Honors will be rolling over all elite nights earned in 2020 to the 2021 program year, meaning that the double elite nights will count towards next year's status

Hilton Honors will soon offer double points and elite nights

Bottom line

Hilton Honors deserves a lot of credit for constantly offering promotions.

The program is offering its Points Unlimited promotion through September 7, for 2,000 bonus points on every stay, and 10,000 bonus points after every 10 nights.

Then starting September 8, the program will offer double bonus points and double elite nights on all stays. That's a solid promotion since you'll not only earn up to 10x bonus points per dollar spent at Hiltons, but you'll also earn elite nights that will roll over to next year.

What do you make of Hilton's upcoming promotion?
