In September, Hilton HHonors members were asked to vote for their preference of fourth quarter promotions: double HHonors points or 1,000 bonus points per night. Double points won the day, so Hilton HHonors members are invited to sign up between November 1, 2014 and January 31, 2015 and earn unlimited double points beginning with the second stay at any participating Hilton hotel or resort between these same dates.

Hilton HHonors' Double Up promo will earn you double points on your second stay through January 31, 2015.
Hilton’s Double Up promo will earn you double points through January 31, 2015.

Registration for Double Up begins Saturday, November 1, 2014, and you must sign up prior to check-out of your first eligible stay between that date and January 31, 2015. Your unlimited bonus points will equal the number of base points you earn during eligible stays, and will appear in your HHonors account six to eight weeks after completion of your second stay and subsequent stays. Bonus points earned won’t count toward elite status. All of Hilton’s brands are participating in this promo, but be sure to consult the list of individual hotels and resorts that have opted out.

Hilton HHonors members typically earn 10 points per dollar spent on hotel stays. With the Double Up promotion, that base earning increases to 20 points per dollar, and elite status can boost your earning rate up to 25 points per dollar.

Additionally, you can use one of the co-branded Hilton credit cards to maximize the Double Up promotion and earn additional bonus HHonors points for each dollar spent at Hilton properties. These cards include the Hilton HHonors Surpass American Express (12 points), Citi Hilton Reserve Card (10 points), Hilton HHonors American Express (7 points), and Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature Card (6 points).

If you have multiple Hilton stays planned before February 2015, make sure to register for the promotion in advance, since you must sign up before the end of your first stay in order to to earn the bonus on your second stay and beyond. Also, if you only have one stay planned during the promotional period, but it’s at an upscale property, consider adding an inexpensive earlier stay just to become eligible for the bonus. It could be worth booking a throwaway night at the nearby Hampton Inn to earn the bonus on a week at, for example, the Hilton Concorde Opera in Paris.

Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card

This card’s sign-up bonus of two free nights can be worth as much as 190,000 points if you redeem them at top-tier properties like the Conrad Maldives, and it also confers automatic Gold status and the ability to earn Diamond status through spending.
