Guests who register for the Power Up Promotion can earn double points on stays completed between September 7, 2021, and December 31, 2021. Have any of the 4 Hilton Honors-branded American Express cards? You can earn triple points when you use your card to pay for your stays (in addition to what you already earn with your card).

Keep in mind that the number of bonus points you’ll earn is determined by the base points you usually earn, which is 10x points per $1 for all Hilton members.

Given that, Hilton Diamond members paying with the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card will earn 54x points per $1 on stays (30x base points due to the Power Up promotion, 10x points for their Diamond status, and 14x points for paying with their Hilton Aspire card).

Hilton Gold members paying with the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card or The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card will earn 50x points per $1 on stays (30x base points due to the Power Up promotion, 8x points for their Gold status, and 12x points for paying with either the Hilton Surpass card or Hilton Business Amex card).

Finally, Hilton Silver members paying with the Hilton Honors American Express Card will earn 39x points per $1 on stays (30x base points due to the Power Up promotion, 2x points for their Silver status, and 7x points for paying with their Hilton Honors card).
