Hilton has launched registration for its early 2022 promotion: 2500 bonus points per stay January 1 – May 1, 2022.
- No minimum stay required and the bonus applies to your first stay, no nonsense like only bonusing you starting with your second or third stay
- Must check out by May 1 to earn the bonus
- The bonus is offered on award stays too – not just paid stays
I value Hilton points at $0.004 apiece. So 2500 points are worth $10. That’s pretty weak sauce for stays longer than one night, and for stays at premium properties.
On the other hand it’s pretty good for a one night stay at a mid-tier hotel, and useful for points redemptions because even award stays earn the bonus. Think of it as a 2500 point discount on redemptions. Overall I prefer even double points, and certainly prefer the triple points offers we’ve seen.
You should definitely register for the promotion – and do it now – because even if you aren’t planning to stay at all with Hilton during the first four months of 2022, you might find yourself surprised (perhaps you get stuck overnight at an airport!) and you’ll never remember to go back later and register. So get that part over with, because earning the bonus is better than not earning the bonus.
