Hilton’s First Quarter Promotion – 1000 Bonus Points Per NIght Plus 5000 Bonus Per Two-Night Weekend

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.

  1. The think that ticks me off about all the Hilton promo’s is the extremely long list of excluded hotels every time. If it’s a Hilton Hhonors promo then hotels should have to participate period!

  2. Is this worth mattress running on weekends? In the DC area, you could probably do two nights for ~$120…that would net you about 8000 hilton hhonors points? but i don’t think that’s really worth it still.

  3. @Jerry not worth mattress running, 8k HHonors is worth ~ $40. Add 2k bmi miles maybe another $40. You get $80 for $120 in spend. If the 2 night leisure stay is of value to you the promo makes it that much cheaper. But not worth mattress running just for the points.

  4. Hilton points have become the new Sky Pesos
    with 100k plus room nights the points personally mean little to me
    Especially when in the most important cities like Sydney,Hong Kong and elsewhere
    The 50 k awards are now double or more
    I’m done with their program except in rare circumstances

  5. Do reward stays (cash and points or premium rooms awards) at Hiltons or Conrads qualify for this promo?

  6. No luck getting registered, because the Sign In button isn’t working for me on either Firefox or Chrome browsers.

  7. Gary,
    Thanks for the info. Can I earn both the bonus points and miles for this promotion? How many miles will I get for each stay for this promotion beside the 1K/5K HH points?
