Love eating delicious food like I do? Million Mile Secrets reader Jeff let us know about a deal from Hilton, where you can earn up to 2,000 bonus Hilton points for joining the Hilton Honors Dining program.
I’ll explain the details of this offer. And help you decide whether it makes sense for you.
Earn Bonus Hilton Points for Dining Out
You’ll get 1,000 bonus Hilton points after your first visit to a participating restaurant, bar, or club, when you spend at least $30 with your registered card and complete a short review.
The more times you dine, the more bonus points you’ll earn. To pocket the full bonus, you’ll have to spend at least $30 at 3 different participating locations within the first 30 days of joining. And you’ll have 30 days after your visit to complete the review.
The bonus points should post to your account within 4 to 6 weeks of completing your post-dine survey.
Is It Worth It?
Although 2,000 Hilton points isn’t enough for a free night, this could be a good way to extend the life of your Hilton points for 12 months. Because Hilton points expire within 12 months if you don’t have any activity on your account.
Or this could be an easy way to top-off your account for an upcoming award stay.
For example, Category 1 Hilton hotels cost 5,000 Hilton points per night. So earning 2,000 Hilton points for dining out gets you nearly half way to a free night.
That said, this isn’t as easy as earning the free Hilton points I wrote about a few weeks ago.
And I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to take advantage of this deal. But if you dine out a lot and want to try the participating restaurants, it could be worth signing-up!
Using the Right Card Is the Cherry on Top of Your Dessert!
Don’t forget to register and use a card that earns bonus points on dining out!
