Loyalty Traveler brings us details on Hilton’s first quarter promo:
1,000 bonus points per night plus 5,000 bonus points for two night weekend stays from January 1, 2012 through March 31, 2012. There is no earning limit for bonus points. Stays with check-in prior to January 1 or checkout after March 31, 2012 will count for this promotion for nights stayed within the promotion period.
Hilton HHonors More Points promotion registration is required before hotel checkout to be eligible for this bonus points offer.
…Weekend nights include the four nights from Thursday through Sunday, but only one 5,000 point bonus may be earned per weekend. These are combinable bonuses of per night and weekend bonus, so two nights as Thursday-Friday, Friday-Saturday, or Saturday-Sunday stay earns 7,000 bonus points for the two nights and 1,000 bonus points for any additional nights of an extended stay.
Marriott is running MegaBonus again (a free night at a mid-range property after two stays), Priority Club is offering various stay X nights earn Y bonus points promos, ad Starwood is offering double points on two-night stays and triple points on longer stays.
So among the major chains we’re really just waiting on Hyatt Gold Passport to announce, which isn’t unusual as they often don’t stick quite as strictly to calendar quarters for their promotions. I suspect we’ll hear something soon, though.
It’s always worth registering for all of the promos when you first hear about them, that way you don’t have to go back and do it later and run the risk of forgetting to do it prior to a stay you hadn’t expect to have which would qualify.
