Registration is now open for Hilton’s 2013 Q1 Double Your HHonors Promotion, which runs from January 7 through March 31, 2013. HHonors members can earn double Hilton HHonors points or double miles when they stay at participating hotels and resorts.

To earn the double points/miles, you must register prior to check-out of first stay within the promotion period and once you register, your selection cannot be changed.

If you choose double points, you will earn double the base points – so no elite bonuses – while if you choose double miles, you must have selected the points + fixed miles or points + variable miles option and designated a preferred carrier.

If you have some award stays coming up, members may earn double points (not miles) for incidental charges at participating hotels within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio during a reward stay, provided such charges are deemed eligible folio charges. This does not apply to incidental charges for stays at Hampton, Home2 Suites or Homewood Suites.

Also note that if your stay begins before the promo period or ends after, you will only receive the selected bonus for the nights of an eligible stay completed during the promotion period, regardless of a check-in date before the promotion period begins or a check-out date after the promotion period ends.

While this isn’t the most lucrative hotel promo we’ve seen, it is still a good opportunity to earn some bonus points with Hilton. However, double check the non-participating property list to make sure the property you are staying at is participating as there is a long list of hotels especially in the U.S. that have opted out from this promotion. Be sure to choose carefully because your selection cannot be changed. Bonus points will post within six to eight weeks after the promotion has concluded.

Terms and Conditions:

Offer valid for eligible stays completed between January 7 and March 31, 2013 (“Promotion Period”) at any participating hotel in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio (click here for hotels who have chosen to not participate). Hilton HHonors™ members must first register at HHonors.com/Double prior to check-out of first stay within the Promotion Period. Your selection of Double Points or Double Miles applies to all eligible stays completed during the Promotion Period at participating hotels and cannot be changed. Registered HHonors members will receive the selected bonus only for nights completed during the Promotion Period, regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the Promotion Period ends. If registering for Double Miles, you must select Points and Variable Miles or Points and Fixed Miles as your Double Dip™ Earning Style within your HHonors profile. “Double Points” means you will receive a bonus equal to the number of Base Points earned during a stay. Bonus Points earned on Base Points do not count toward tier qualification. Double Miles are available only with participating airlines. A preferred airline must be selected in your HHonors profile. Airline Miles accrued and awards issued are subject to the Terms and Conditions of each participating airline’s reward program, as applicable. Certain airlines may not participate with the brand at which your stay is consumed. For details on the eligibility of your stay to earn miles, please click here. Please allow six to eight weeks from completion of your stay for points or miles to appear in your HHonors account. Offer is not transferable and cannot be combined with other select offers.
