Starting today through October 10, 2016, Hilton’s offering a flash sale of up to 25%-30% off select properties in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Travel must be completed on weekends between October 7, 2016 and January 29, 2017. As with most flash sales, full payment is required at the time of booking, and rates are nonrefundable. To book, go the HHonors flash sale page and look at the properties available to see if any appeal to you.
You can take advantage of these rates even further by registering for the Double Up promotion and booking your stay through the HHonors app. If you’re registered and book through the app, you’ll earn triple HHonors points for your stay, which could be very valuable, especially when paired with additional bonus earning from status and credit cards.
Here are some examples of what you can book as part of the sale:
The Trafalgar London
You can stay at The Trafalgar in London for £231 (~$295; 25% off the flex rate) per night when you book as part of this sale. This sample rate is for a one-night stay on a Friday in October. If you don’t book as part of the sale, you can book with the HHonors discount for £278 (~$354; 10% off the flex rate) per night, or the flexible rate for £309 (~$394) per night.
The Trafalgar London is a HHonors Category 8 property, requiring 40,000-70,000 points per night.
Hilton Paris Opera
As part of this sale, you can stay at the Hilton Paris Opera for 231 euro (~$257; 25% off the flex rate) per night. This sample rate is for a one-night stay on a Friday in October.

You can stay in a Family Room at the Rome Cavalieri for a one-night stay in January for 292 euro (~$325; 30% off the flex rate) as part of this sale.

If you’ve been thinking about heading to Europe, the Middle East or Africa in the coming months, now could be a good time to book a hotel with Hilton. This sale could be especially lucrative if you take advantage of the Double Up promotion and book your stay on the Hilton app to earn triple points.
Consider booking your stay through this sale with the Hilton HHonors Surpass Credit Card from American Express. The card has a limited-time sign-up bonus of 100,000 points after you spend $3,000 in the first three months. With the card, you’ll earn 12x points for every dollar spent with a Hilton property, as well as 6x points at US restaurants, supermarkets and gas stations and 3x points on all other purchases. With the 12x points you get coupled with the Gold elite status bonus (you also get with the card) and the 3x bonus for booking through the app with the triple points promotion, you could be getting a pretty fantastic return on your stay at a discounted rate.
