Hilton Honors Upgrades Rewards
February
16

Do you find yourself wishing for more rewards from Hilton Honors? If so, you are in luck. They will be rolling out new benefits allowing members to use a combination of points and money to pay for their stays and combine points with friends and family for stays, as well as being able to use points to buy merchandise on Amazon. Members will also be able to extend their Diamond status if there is a period when they are not traveling. The new reward upgrades will be rolled out over the coming year.

These upgrades at Hilton Honors are seen as a way to give cardholders innovative options in how they use their points. “At Hilton, we are committed to continually innovating to deliver exceptional experiences for our guests,” said Christopher J. Nassetta, president and chief executive officer, Hilton. “Enabling our Hilton Honors members to use their Points to shop at Amazon.com, along with the other industry-first perks we’re announcing today, are some of the many ways we are honoring that commitment.”

The upgrade rollout timeline

When will members be able to use Hilton Honors points at Amazon.com? The answer is this summer, but late in February people will be able to use the new Hilton Honors Points & Money slider to determine how many points they want to redeem to book a room. When this kicks in people will be able to use their points faster, and will not have to deal with blackout dates when using points.

Point pooling might be a great pick for some, and starting this April friends and family members will be able to do just that. With the point pooling options members can can combine their points with those of up to ten family members or friends – and it won’t cost them anything. So in total eleven people can pool their points to get together for all kinds of occasions, which might mean getting in a family getaway, having a reunion or celebrating a special event.

Last but not least, in March Diamond members who find themselves traveling can put their status on hold. They extend their status once, and for one year, for any reason at all.

New image for Hilton

Along with these changes Hilton has also rolled out a new logo and corporate identity for both Hilton and Hilton Honors.
