Hilton Honors is currently running a promotion in which you can earn double points for all your stays at Hilton hotels in Asia-Pacific if you perform your booking using a Visa Infinite or Visa Signature branded card. This promotion runs from now until 31 December 2018 and registration is required.
To be eligible for the double points, you will have to book and stay at Hilton properties within the Asia-Pacific region from now until 31 December 2018. It’s worth noting that stays booked prior to this will not be eligible to earn 2X points even though you have paid for it using a Visa Signature branded card such as the DBS Altitude Visa.
For the full list of properties in Asia-Pacific which are in Hilton’s portfolio, you can refer to this list.
Earn double points through the Visa promotion, stack it with Moments Made Bigger
As mentioned earlier, if you book your stays using a Visa Infinite or a Visa Signature card you will earn double points on all your stays from now until 31 December 2018. With this promotion, there is a great chance to double dip on your Hilton Honors points earnings as there is also an ongoing promotion which launched a few months ago called “Moments Made Bigger”.
By stacking this new promotion and the Moments Made Bigger promotion, you can potentially earn up to 40 base Hilton Honors points per USD1 on all your stays. This does not even include the bonus points you will earn by virtue of your elite status in the Hilton Honors program.
Take for instance if you were to book your stay at the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok, the swanking new hotel located in central Bangkok. Paid rates go for about USD291 pre-tax.
If you were to book this one-night stay with your Visa Infinite or Visa Signature card, here’s how many base Hilton Honors points you can potentially earn if you stack the Visa 2X points offer as well as the Moments Made Bigger offer:
- 2,910 base points from the room rate of USD291;
- 2,910 bonus from booking the stay using a Visa Infinite or Visa Signature card;
- 5,820 bonus as its a Waldorf Astoria property and hence earns 3X points under the Moments Made Bigger promotion
Giving you a grand total of 11,640 Hilton Honors points which is an excellent deal in my opinion. Hilton Honors points are worth 0.5 US cents per point so you will be getting back USD58.20 on your stay at the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok. Remember that you will still earn additional bonus miles by virtue of your elite status in Hilton Honors which will further increase the total value of Hilton Honors points you will be earning.
This promotion ties in nicely with the year-end holidays and this is a great way to rack up some serious Hilton Honors points to put towards a future redemption. Just remember to register your Hilton Honors account for this promotion as well as Moment’s Made Bigger to accelerate your Hilton Honors points earning.
