Hilton has launched their new “Weekend Rewards” promotion.
The U.S. Olympic Team spends weeks on the road training with the Olympic stage as their reward. As a business traveler, your time on the road away from home should be rewarded too.
This is a promotion that’s either for the non-business traveler, or business travel is now defined as weekend travel. Because of the Olympics. Or something.
Hilton is offering:
- 1000 bonus points per night, plus
- 5000 points for every weekend stay of two nights or more.
While the offer page says you have to both “book and stay” between February 1 and April 30 to earn the bonus, the rules actually clarify you just need to register and stay between those dates. No need to actually cancel and rebook stays on February 1 to ensure your reservations will count.
Weekend nights are defined as Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. You have to have two of those in a row in order to earn the 5000 bonus points on top of 1000 points per night. (A Sunday night check-in / Friday check-out won’t count.)
There’s also a list of ~ 350 hotels not offering the bonus.
