Popular hotel chains like Hilton and Marriott are already looking at ways to help members earn bonus points in 2021. Hilton has introduced “Points Unlimited” while Marriott is launching “More Points Ahead”, each with unique bonuses and terms. We’ll take a closer look at these hotel promotions and how they can help you rack up some valuable bonus points come the new year.
Hilton Honors has many ways for members to accumulate bonus points. Whether it’s through promotions like this one or cobranded credit cards, there are always fun ways to grow your account. Hilton Honors is always free to join.
The “Points Unlimited” program runs from January 1 through May 2, 2021. It gives Hilton Honors members the ability to earn 2,000 bonus points for each stay and an extra 5,000 bonus points every five nights. Even better, there’s no maximum amount of points you can earn with this hotel promotion.
Even if you have just one Hilton stay coming up, “Points Unlimited” will add significant value to your Hilton Honors membership. Now, with multiple stays, you can watch as your bonus points see a massive jump.
