Hilton Honors recently launched its newest promotion, called “More Nights, More Points.” With this promotion, you can earn 2X base points when staying one or two nights, and 3X base points when staying 3 or more nights. This promotion lasts now through September 6, 2021.

Hilton More Nights, More Points Promotion

  • You must register for this promotion to earn bonus Hilton Honors points.
  • Book and complete any stay before September 6, 2021 to receive 2X or 3X bonus points on your stay:
    • Receive 2X bonus points on stays 1-2 nights
    • Receive 3X bonus points on stays 3 nights or more
  • There is no limit to the number of bonus points you can receive with this promotion, although your base bonus points can have limits depending on which hotel you're staying at.
  • Offer valid for stays at any hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio

Bonus points are calculated on your base bonus points earnings. Hilton Honors members normally earn 10 points per dollar spent at Hilton hotels. With this promotion, you will get:

  • 20 points per dollar on stays of 1-2 nights
  • 30 points per dollar on stays of 3+ nights

So if you stay 2 nights and spend $400, you'll receive 8,000 bonus points (4,000 base points and 4,000 bonus points). If you stay 3 nights and spend $600, you'll receive 18,000 bonus points (6,000 base points and 12,000 bonus points). If you have Hilton Honors elite status, you'll earn an elite bonus on top of this.

You can get the bonus points of this promotion even if you've already started your stay at a Hilton hotel. Just make sure you register for the promotion before you check out to get the bonus points. Also, if you've already booked your stay but haven't started it yet, you can get this promotion as long as your stay has a check-out date before September 6, 2021, and you register before you check out.

Other Fine Print

  • Consecutive stays at the same property with a check-out and check-in on the same day count as one stay.
  • Bonus points do not count toward elite status.
  • All Hilton brands are participating in the promotion.
  • Not all rates are included in this promotion.
  • Please allow 6-8 weeks from the completion of your stay for the bonus points to appear in your Hilton Honors account.
  • This promotion is only available to Hilton Honors members.

Earn Even More Points Through Hilton Milestone Bonus

Hilton offers a standing incentive to keep loyalists staying at Hilton even after earning elite status: Milestone Bonus. If you're unfamiliar, Hilton Milestone Bonus offers 10,000 bonus points for every 10 nights you stay with Hilton. However, for 2021, Hilton cut the required number of nights to start receiving the bonus by half.

Instead of 40 nights, you will now receive your first 10,000 point bonus after only 20 nights. Then, when you reach 60 nights, you will get an additional 40,000 bonus points (it used to be 30,000 bonus points).

Hilton Milestone Promotion 2021

You may notice that Hilton lists “in 2020” in this graphic. However, this is from Hilton's 2021 program updates page. And Hilton clarifies:

Hilton Honors Members earn 10,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points at 20 eligible nights and 10,000 Bonus Points for every 10 additional eligible nights thereafter during the 2021 calendar year – with no cap. On your 60th eligible night in 2021 you will receive an additional 30,000 Bonus Points on top of the 10,000 Milestone Bonus Points achieved at that threshold, for a total of 40,000 Points.

2021 Hilton Elite Status

Hilton also cut the requirements for 2021 elite status in half. Instead of requiring 10 nights or 4 stays, Hilton Silver will require just 5 nights or 2 stays. And top-tier Diamond elite status can be achieved after just 30 nights or 15 stays:

Our Take

Hilton Honors are certainly offering some good promotions to lure back customers to their hotels. There are plenty of people who aren't yet comfortable with traveling. But, if you have some trips planned and are a Hilton Honors member, you'll definitely want to take advantage of this Hilton promotion.

The main thing here is to register for the promotion before you check out (or before check in, just to be safe). If you don't register, you don't get the bonus points.

AwardWallet members have recently redeemed Hilton Honors points for an average of 0.64 cents per Honors point. At this rate, this Hilton promotion provides approximately $12.80 in value per $100 spent on 1 or 2 night stays, and $19.20 in value per $100 spent on 3+ night stays. That's a solid return!

This promotion is just another item to add to the long list of advantages of joining the Hilton Honors Rewards Program. If you're a Hilton Honors member, there's no reason not to register for this promotion and get up to 3X bonus points on your stays before September 6, 2021.

    Que buena noticia, me alegra leer esto. Espero poder ir este verano con mi familia.

  • Avatar

    Good to know. I hope I can travel next summer.

  • Avatar

    I’d gladly start to travel again, but the closes and only hotel within the Hiltonportfolio is a 4,5h drive away from where I live. I need at least 10 nights before the end of the year, but so far no luck as all my plans falls apart due to the Coronvirus with closed borders and no possibilities to travel. I keep my fingers that the world will open up for more easy travel soon without the PCR-testing and there will probably be a new campaign later in the fall with another promotion going on for Hilton.

  • Avatar

    Try to schedule your trip to have a full moon while you’re there. The sky is incredibly beautiful. Get ready for an unforgettable night.

  • Avatar

    This is a good promo. We are looking at booking a summer trip and this is a good way to earn extra points for Hilton.

  • Avatar

    It would be nice to see Hilton selling points for less than 0.5 c/point at some point.. I’d definitely buy then!

    Thanks for the information. Is it valid worldwide?

      Good question. It is available worldwide! I added a note about that to the piece.
      Per the T&C: “Offer valid for stays completed May 3 – September 6, 2021 … at any hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio”

    Hilton Honors is a good one. Thanks a lot for the information on the promotion. Great way to get back on the road after Covid19 and take advantage of a super program. I really like the important tip about the timing of the registration, since that is easy to miss. THANKS for that!!!!!

  • Avatar

    I’ve already two bookings with Hilton in July and so I’ve registered for the promo.

  • Avatar

    Pretty good deal especially if you already use hilton

  • Avatar

    Then they go and remove elite breakfast benefits… 🙁

  • Avatar

    Hopefully, the lucky ones can enjoy their newly acquired diamond status with abandon in 2022.

  • Avatar

    Thanks for the heads up! Even though we have no finalized travel plans yet, I will definitely be registering, just in case.

  • Avatar

    Seems it’s a good promo, but as i think it’s not good more than last season. the Q1 promo can be get more points for HH.

  • Avatar

    I have bunch of HHonors points can be used for the summer! Yeah!

  • Avatar

    This is great information and very helpful for planning on maximizing points and rewards for upcoming travel. Hilton’s rewards programs and promotions just don’t seem to be as good as some of their competitors though.

    Do award stays count towards Elite status?

  • Avatar

    I’ve been pleased with Hilton lately. However, I still can’t believe you have to call in to get your free night certificates booked. It’s amazing in this day and age that you can’t book them online like every other brand.

  • Avatar

    Just registered, easy points. Hilton always has a lot of offers for its members.

    Thanks for the info. I think IHG promotion – triple point after 3rd stay – seems more tempting than this hilton’s double & triple promotion.

    • Avatar

      IHG is probably the better scheme if you are interested in collecting points for free nights, whereas Hilton is probably better in terms of benefits if you have status.

  • Avatar

    Bonuses + status extensions would be truly fantastic for parties involved.

  • Avatar

    Registered both accounts I manage, just in case.. but probably won’t drive any Hilton nights.

  • Avatar

    Registered (as I do for all of them, despite not planning any non-essential travel for awhile). One thing I’ll miss a lot when I resume non-essential travelling will be hotel lounges and full breakfasts.

  • Avatar

    Nice perk from Hilton to enhance the earning potential from stays, but with the continued devaluations and inflated points requirements at aspirational Hilton properties, the prospects here are really less than compelling. They need some break away deals like IHG so there are better options on the redemption side too

  • Avatar

    Unfortunately even with the reduced thresholds, and the carry over of nights form last year, I can’t see there being any prospect of me retaining Diamond as I am currently at zero stays this year. Even if things return closer to normality soon, I just don’t see how I can hit the target.

  • Avatar

    Anouther strong promotion from Hilton. The last promotion was much better though because reward stays counted.

  • Avatar

    I do love me some Hilton Honors double points!!! NICE!!

  • Avatar

    Thanks. However, I am noticing something interesting in trying to take advantage of the Hilton offers as well as get my stays in to requalify for Diamond. It seems that some Hiltons are raising their rates substantially, while limiting the number of rooms. I will not mention a particular HGI that wanted over $200 a night for rooms that 15/18 months ago would have gone for $100 – $125/night. What makes it more interesting, competitors within a couple miles seem to have rates comparable to what they would have charged pre-pandemic.

  • Avatar

    Almost all brand are offering similar reduced loyalty rewards programs in order to keep their customers. They should keep the latest year status.

  • Avatar

    Your last line incorrectly states earn double points and nights through May 2, 2021…. That was last year’s promotion….

    Also, I think you should suggest that people with long stays crossing the May 2, 2021 deadline unsure that they check out on May 3, 2021 and then check back in with a separate booking on the 4th…. stay somewhere else on the 3rd to avoid any merged stay if possible…

    • Avatar

      The terms and conditions for this promotion state: “Offer valid for stays completed January 1 – May 2, 2021 (“Promotion Period”) at any hotel or resort within the Hilton Portfolio. Hilton Honors™ members must first register at HiltonHonors.com/pointsunlimited prior to completing a stay within the Promotion Period.” So, I’m a bit confused by what you mean about this being last year’s promotion.

      But, that’s a good point about making sure to check out by May 2 for long stays!

  • Avatar

    That’s not a bad promotion but maybe they should take a page from Hyatt’s books and also provide some sort of bonus elite nights or something.

  • Avatar

    Seems generous but on the other hand, how much can people travel and take advtange of this in these pandemic times.

    • Avatar

      Yes, but I do very much look forward to what should be a real sweet spot, where there’s overlap between when it starts to genuinely be safe to travel again and the excellent offers to entice us back.

  • Avatar

    Hope Hilton gets a bit more creative in designing their promos! It looks like a pretty “standard” promo similar to many pre-covid ones.

  • Avatar

    Thank you for the information on the Hilton promotion. Very weak, especially when you consider what Hyatt is offering.

  • Avatar

    Thanks for the heads up. Speaking of Hilton, did anyone get the 10,000 bonus points from signing up for surveys? I thought I had, because it showed up on the survey site account, but I haven’t received them in my Hilton account.

    • Avatar

      Oh no! Hopefully they are deposited for you soon. My points were deposited not too long after I did a survey, but the T&C did note that it can take 4-6 weeks.

    • Avatar

      I did mine, and on the survey site, I got confirmation right away after I finished my 1st survey. It wasn’t an easy survey. Although there site did say 6-8 week. It appeared on my Hilton account few days later. 10k plus 450 for the 1st survey!

  • Avatar

    I have already signed up and have a few one night stays scheduled. I’ll admit that I have split up my stays so that I stay one night in a Hilton, one in a Marriott and one in a Hyatt. To take advantage of all the bonuses that are available right now. It’s a bit more work but will be worth it. I will admit that I had forgotten about the Hilton Milestone Bonuses. Just one more thing to keep things interesting.

  • Avatar

    I really hope to be travelling again by then to take advantage of this good deal!

  • Avatar

    Thanks. I signed up for the promotion you gave the link to. It’s not clear how long it will be before I travel again, but it’s always good to sign up in case.

  • Avatar

    I’d like to register this promo. Will be have a trip to Alaska stay at Hilton hotels.

  • Avatar

    If I’m in a stay right now and check out the beginning of October, will this count?

    Really strong – and beautifully straightforward – promo from Hilton; I’m certainly looking forward to taking advantage of this before the end of the year as the opportunities to travel again open up..

  • Avatar

    Thanks for letting us know the link is live. Now, just need to book rooms!

  • Avatar

    Thanks for the Hilton promotions! This is great to see!

  • Avatar

    Now that so many of us have some idea about the cents value of these points (from reading blogger posts) I think the HHonors double points rarely get me excited.

  • Avatar

    How to know which hotel chains will survive the post-pandemic crisis?

  • Avatar

    It’s very tempting, although it’d be nice if the rates were a little better at Hiltons.

  • Avatar

    I think the double nights count towards Lifetime Diamond status. I wish they would show progress towards this in the app or on the website as it would be a motivation to book.

    • Avatar

      @ECR – There was mention in the travel-blog-sphere earlier this year that Hilton planned to a add lifetime status tracker to the website by the end of 2020. Perhaps we’ll still see that, but seems likely global events have caused resources to be diverted from the project.

  • Avatar

    Already Registered. Can be earn more point next Month. But is there have a platinum member challenge?

  • Avatar

    That’s a good promo. Registered for it. Now i just wish to actually use it before the end of the year.

  • Avatar

    With points expiration extended until the end of the year, I suspect that many members will be looking to add points by December. This is a good opportunity to earn points, particularly for those planning to travel during the holidays.

  • Avatar

    Just registered.
    I think Hilton runs the best promotions these days.

  • Avatar

    Registered! (As I have for so many other travel promos, although I don’t plan to travel, outside of road trips in my vehicle, any time soon.)

  • Avatar

    Plan to go to Thailand Hilton hotels. It’s good promo for me. I will be go to register this offer. Tks

  • Avatar

    looking unlikely to travel before the end of the year but will register just in case!

  • Avatar

    It’s a good promo to keep my platinum membership. I have registered this offer. Thanks.

  • Avatar

    It seems like the promotions are getting better as the reopening of the economy continues. It would be great if it was also double airline miles too as Hilton is the only program that gives you both hotel and airline points.

  • Avatar

    I don’t have plans to take a vacation during this period, but I signed up anyways. You never know!

  • Avatar

    I have signed up. Thanks for the reminder. This time it was really easy unlike for the recent Bonvoy promotion; I had to call and the phone agent commented that online signup was not working for a lot of people.

    Good window for this promotion. Nice to see it open through the end of 2020.

    So many hotel promotions coming up these days!
