Hilton runs promotions throughout the year often for months a time, allowing Honors members to rack up extra points on stays. The current promotion, Go More, Get More, will end on September 8. On September 9 the new promotion will start and it's yet another great promo for Honors members to really rack up points on their stays at Hilton properties.

Power Up Your Points will earn Honors members double base points on every stay between September 9 and January 5, 2020. Members who are also cardholders of one of Hilton's co-branded American Express cards can earn triple base points when they book their stay using their Hilton Amex card.

Booking your stay using one of the Hilton American Express cards allows you to maximize your points on this promotion and let's be honest: if you have one of these cards in your wallet why would you book using anything else?

For example, if you are an Amex Hilton Aspire cardholder your overall earning is already 34 points per dollar — 14 points for booking with your card, 10 base points, and a 100% base point bonus for having Diamond Status, which comes with the card. This promotion will earn you an additional base 20 points — giving you a grand total of 54 points per dollar spent. TPG currently values Honors points at .06 cents per point, meaning you are effectively getting over a 30% return on each dollar spent.

Why We Chose It

There’s a lot to love about the Amex Gold card. It’s been a fan favorite during the pandemic because of its fantastic rewards rate on restaurants (that includes takeout and delivery in the U.S.!) and U.S. supermarkets. If you’re hitting the skies soon, you’ll also earn bonus points on travel. Paired with up to $120 in Uber Cash (for U.S. Uber rides or Uber Eats orders) and up to $120 in annual dining statement credits at eligible partners, there’s no reason that the foodie shouldn’t add this card to their wallet. Enrollment required.

Pros

  • 4x on dining at restaurants and U.S. supermarkets (on the first $25,000 in purchases per calendar year; then 1x).
  • 3x on flights booked directly with the airline or with Amex Travel.
  • Welcome bonus of 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first six months.

Cons

  • Weak on travel outside of flights and everyday spending bonus categories.
  • Not as useful for those living outside the U.S.
  • Some may have trouble using Uber/food credits.
  • Few travel perks and protections.
