It has been awhile since we have discussed the options for earning miles and points via new member referrals. There have been plenty of opportunities lately for existing cardholders to earn miles by referring their family and friends to sign up for a credit card such as the offer for 5,000 UR points for Chase Freedom Referrals or refer a friend option for the SPG card 30k offer.
But it is not just miles for referring credit cards. You can also earn miles or points for referring your family, friends, or co-workers to join various loyalty programs as well.
Hilton has had an ongoing referral program for a while now, known as the Member Get Member program. They standard offer has been the same for a couple of years where members got 1,000 bonus points for every stay completed by your referral up to 25,000 bonus points if the person you refer actually stayed 25 times in that calendar year which can be pretty tough to complete depending on when in the year you made the referral.
The new deal
Hilton has made the Member Get Member program a little more lucrative for the remainder of the year. With the new offer you still have the ability to get up to 25,000 points from each new member that you refer. The difference is that the bonus points will much quicker. You simply refer your friend, they sign up, and then you both start to earn points on their stays.
- You earn 2,500 bonus points after they complete their 1st stay
- You earn 7,500 bonus points after they complete their 4th stay
- You earn 15,000 bonus points after they complete their 10th stay
- After 10 stays – your friend earns 10,000 bonus points plus Gold Status
So if you have any friends of family that are just getting into travel and might have some potential stays at Hilton’s coming up then you might want to consider sending them a referral using this link. And remember both Marriott and Choice hotels have ongoing referral programs to consider as well.
