Hilton HHonors Hands Out Double Points or Miles For Stays
We know you're hurting as the holiday bills start to roll in, but that doesn't mean you should sit on your wallet. Consider this article a gift from us, some extra justification for a winter getaway as January sets in and the pace of everyday life returns. We know you need a night out now more than ever.
Hilton HHonors launched a promotion yesterday that gives members double HHonors points or double airline miles for stays between January 7 and March 31, 2013. The participating brands are Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Hotels, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton and Hilton Grand Vacations.
We think this type of promotion provides the perfect excuse to plan a staycation. We're not suggesting you pony up for flights and the prices that come along with exotic destinations for the sake of a double miles kickback, but a modest weekend trip into the nearest city certainly makes sense. Notice the date range also includes Valentine's Day, so Hilton might be a good lodging option for those already planning a surprise overnight trip (hint, hint).
To earn the points, you must register before checking out of your stay at HHonors.com/Double. At that time, you'll be prompted to choose whether to earn double points or miles for the duration of the promotion, so be sure to think about it in the meantime as it appears to be one or the other.
