Hilton seems to be in the limelight lately with its increased sign up bonuses, and other promotions that reward its loyal members additional points. This article is actually more good news in the form of positive changes that are coming to the Hilton brand.
While these changes may not impact most people, I think it’s still important to discuss them:
The first change comes in the form of points expiration. Points will now expire is 15 months instead of 12 months with no activity.
Second, whenever staying at a property, there will no longer be a cap as to how many points you can earn. Previously the limit was 100,000.
Third, when booking multiple rooms within a stay, you can now earn points for up to 4 different rooms. Previously the limit was 2 per stay.
Finally, members can now earn points for incidentals on every single Hilton owned brand. Previously Hampton Inn, Tru, Home2 Suites, and Homewood Suites would only earn points for the actual room.
When looking through these changes, I can’t help but say they are all positive changes. The only tweak I would make to these changes is the fact that points expire. Even though the change has added 3 additional months for members to report some sort of activity, it would just look better if the points didn’t expire at all. But that’s just my opinion on the matter. Otherwise, honestly, I think these are all pretty exciting changes.
