If you’ve been intending to do some regional travel in the next few months, next week might well be the best time to book a Hilton property at a lower price, while racking up bonus points.
An eagle-eyed user on FlyerTalk came across details of an upcoming flash sale via the Hilton Sydney website. I can’t seem to find the actual offer page at the moment, but if accurate, we’ll be seeing 40% off prices for properties across Asia Pacific (other than China, HK & Macau) for stays up to 17 Apr 2017 when booking between 7-11 Nov 2016.
Double Up promotion (triple your points!)
The Double Up promotion has been ongoing for some time, but this quarter’s tripling of points for bookings made on the mobile app makes it especially enticing for stays up till 31 Dec 2016. Remember to register for the promotion here before making your reservation.
Visa 5,000 points promotion
As if that weren’t enough, stays up till 31 Jan 2017 booked on the mobile app and paid for using a Visa card earn an extra 5,000 HHonors points. This offer stacks with the Double Up promotion. Again, remember to register for the promotion before booking!
Hypothetically, if one were to stay at the Conrad Centennial Singapore this quarter, it might be possible to get a room at as low as S$180++ after 40% discount (about S$212 in total).
In return, we can expect about 1500 base points (10 points per US$1) for the room – when tripled, plus 5000 bonus points, plus an additional 750 Points + Points earn (remember to select that earning style) you’ll have enough to redeem a free night at a Cat 2 property like the DoubleTree JB (10,000 points).
That’s not even counting any bonus points earned by elite status – I would encourage getting fast track Gold status if possible for free breakfast and accelerated points earn.
Even going by OMAAT’s valuation of HHonors points (US0.4¢ per point), that’s something like US$40 earned from a one-night booking – effectively a 25% rebate!
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to next Monday already…
