HHonors is Hilton’s frequent stay program. If you update your program password by March 25th, at the HHonors website, you’ll get 1,000 bonus HHonors points.
The HHonors program is not the most generous hotel program around (I rank Hyatt’s program as the best with the Starwood program a close second) but there are a lot of Hilton hotels around the globe so it’s beneficial to have an HHonors account. Normal redemption value for a Hilton HHonor point is only about 0.5 cents. Though this 1,000 point offering is only worth about $5 it could be just the bump in points some folks need to get to a threshold to get another free night or it could be the activity needed to prevent existing points from expiring. Hilton HHonors points expire when a member is inactive for 12 months, unless the member holds a Hilton HHonors credit card.
It looks like you will be forced to update your password on April 1st so it makes sense to just go ahead and do it now and get a few free points.
