Hilton just announced their first quarter More Points promotion – register and then stay at any Hilton brand hotel between January 1st and March 31st, 2012 to earn an additional 1,000 bonus miles per night, or 5,000 miles per weekend (defined as 2 consecutive nights, Thursday to Sunday). There is no limit to the amount of bonus points that can be earned during this offer period, but points earned from this promotion do not count towards elite tier qualification.
In my opinion, this promotion is pretty lackluster. A category 4 hotel (Hilton has seven categories in all) costs 30,000 points, so it would 30 nights or 12 weekend nights (in 2 night blocks) to get a free night. I would rate it third behind Starwood’s Better By the Night deal and Marriott’s Megabonus. Overall, I’m anxious to hear what Hyatt has to offer – hopefully something a little more compelling!
Before you get too excited about this promotion, check this list for the hotels that are not participating in this promotion.
