Triple points seem to also work for Hilton Honors Visa credit cards from banks from Japan, Germany/Austria and the UK.

And HH members from many countries with no HH affiliated credit card get nothing, I presume?

Oh this is interesting, but the foreign transaction fee on the UK card means it's not worthwhile to use it at any non-UK hotel. I wonder if passing the transaction through Curve will work? Or if it's sufficient to have the card attached to the reservation but actually pay with a different card at the hotel?

I realise my mistake! I thought this was a promo for credit cards, but I see itís the Q4 promotion. Apologies.

So 3x plus 3 x £1 for the HH Visa.

I wonder if it will post the 3x points regardless of the card like it did for the 2500 Barclaycard per stay sign up bonus.

So.... a total of 4x for diamonds who also hold an HH card? Base points + 100% (1x Base) elite diamond bonus + 2x Base for Q4 promo? (Plus any diamond MyWay elections, plus the respective card spending points and bonus points.)

Yes, 40 points per dollar, or in more applicable terms, 4000/$100.
