Hilton Honors is running a promotion where you can get 1,000 bonus points after just one stay at Tru between now and December 31, 2017.
Tru is Hilton’s budget-friendly brand aimed at Millennials. With tiny rooms and locations that are often highway adjacent, the properties do at least have one great thing going for them – fast, free wifi.
The T&C of the promo say that “members will receive 1,000 bonus points per stay up to one stay“. To me this sounds like you can only receive the bonus one time.
Registration is required before your stay.
After you complete the stay the bonus points will be deposited into your account within 6-8 weeks.
I’m guessing that Hilton’s Tru brand has not been as instantly popular as they had hoped. This promotion is likely an effort to entice folks to try it out and increase awareness. Even the promotion’s registration page comes across as a bit of a sales pitch, touting the benefits of Tru. It also lists a few of the things that set Tru apart from the other Hilton brands.
To me, the breakfast bar with toppings galore sounds like something a 10-year-old would love, and I’m not crazy about the small guest rooms or large communal area. I definitely wouldn’t stay at the property just to get the 1,000 bonus points. I’m not the brand’s target customer though, and if you already have a stay planned then the bonus points are a nice extra.
