Lot of hotels give app exclusive offers to encourage downloads. And I see no harm in grabbing those extra points for just a little effort. You are most likely to get the best available rate anyway, since it’s an official channel. Hilton has a similar offer to promote the use of its Chinese mobile app (Android and iOS) and “Hilton Official Booking” WeChat Applet.

You will earn:

  • 2000 bonus Hilton Honors points per stay for bookings made via the Chinese App or “Hilton Official Booking” WeChat Applet.
  • Maximum of 10,000 points total per member.
  • Applicable on bookings made before December 31, 2019 and completed by March 31, 2020.
