Hilton Honors™ Military Program


NASWA’s partnership with Hilton™ strives to make the career transition easier for current and former military members by offering up to 100,000 hotel points to transitioning service members, veterans and other personnel who may be eligible.

Allowable Activities:

  • Travel for verifiable job interviews
  • Training needed to get or keep a job or leading to a certification
  • Pre-employment testing such as physicals, drug testing, and aptitude/agility tests

Non-Allowable Activities:

Points cannot be used for:

  • attending conference and/or career fairs
  • job searching
  • relocation and/or house hunting
  • family visits
  • vacations
  • retirement
  • non-employment activities

There is no guarantee points will be awarded. There is no reimbursement for previous stays at Hilton properties.

Active duty personnel are not eligible for points unless the individual is in the transition process. PCS moves are not covered. A few states will provide points to active-duty spouses. Contact NASWA for more information.

Individuals may receive a maximum of 100,000 points in their lifetime. Each participating state sets its own additional eligibility and residency requirements, and recipients must have a Hilton Honors™ account to receive points.
