Triple points coming from Hilton this summer
I received a “sneak peek” email from Hilton this morning, advertising their summer earning promotion and offering me the ability to sign up today. Here are the details as they presented them:
Being a Hilton HHonors™ member is now more rewarding than ever. Because with this sneak peek at the Triple Your Trip promotion, you can get to your next getaway three times faster. Simply sign up and stay by September 30, 2012, to earn Triple HHonors Points for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights starting July 1, 2012. And earn Double HHonors Points for Monday through Thursday nights at participating hotels and resorts. Take advantage of this special preview today. Because whether you’re earning double points on business or triple points on a weekend away, you can always count on HHonors to get you to your next getaway faster.
In other words, triple points on weekend nights and double points the rest of the week. Not too shabby. Members must enroll to get the promotion; the sign-up link is here: https://www.hiltonhhonors.com/Quarterlypages/2012/Q3/landing.aspx.
The bad news is that there are a whole bunch of hotels which are not participating. Given that the promo period is during the Olympics I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that all the London properties are opting out. That doesn’t explain the scores of hotels across the rest of the globe opting out, but such is life.
Overall, a pretty good promo with reasonably few strings attached. Enjoy!
