Earn up to 6,000 bonus Virgin Flying Club miles (or 20,000 bonus Hilton points) with Hilton

There is a decent Hilton HHonors promotion running with Avios at the moment, offering 1,000 bonus Avios per night when you stay a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night.  More details in this post.

Virgin Flying Club has now launched its own Hilton HHonors promotion, which has the benefit of being available any night of the week.

You will receive 1,500 bonus Flying Club miles on your next stay, 2,000 on your second and 2,500 on your third.  This is available at any brand in the Hilton Group, including Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria and Hampton.

Hilton

Here are the rules:

Yours stays must be completed before 31st January 2014

You must register in advance of your stay at this website

Virgin Flying Club must be selected as your ‘double dip’ partner and your Hilton account set to one of the two ‘Points and Miles’ options.

The bonus points are on top of your standard Flying Club miles earning, which is 1000 miles per stay

This promotion would also combine with Hilton’s main ‘More Nights More Points’ promotion I reviewed here.

As Alan points out in the comments below, there is an interesting tweak to this promotion which makes it attractive even if you have no interest in Virgin Flying Club miles.

You can transfer Virgin miles into Hilton HHonors points at the rate of 1:2, with a minimum transfer of 10,000.  Details on the Virgin website here.  If you register for this promotion, you would earn 9,000 Virgin Flying Club miles from your three stays – 3 x 1000 base miles plus 6000 bonus miles.

If you earned another 1000 Virgin miles (via a Tesco transfer, Heathrow Rewards, Amex Membership Rewards transfer, another hotel stay, car hire, a flight etc) then you would have 10,000.  Transfer those to Hilton, and you’ve got an extra 20,000 points in your account.

  1. Also for those not wanting Virgin miles, remember they can be transferred back to Hilton at a 1:2 ratio – ie 12k HHonors – not a bad bonus!

    Does the avios deal also combine with more nights more points promotion?

  3. R Bailey says:

    I am keen to learn whether this can be combined with the recent targetted promo of extended Gold (til March 2015) after 3 stays and 25K “whichever airline sent you the email invite” miles for 5 stays before 31st Dec 2013. If you’re chasing the 25k, is it worth the risk changing your airline preference to VS for this 6k promo? Once your 3 stays for VS are done, would you need another 2 or another 5 stays for the 25k (after you’ve switched back your airline preference)? Or maybe VS will offer their version of the 25k? :)

  4. What's the Point says:

    Have Hilton gone a bit mad this quarter, there are promotions coming out of their ears?
    3 x Airline bonus ones to choose from and the More Night More Points stay bonuses.
    The Virgin one seems best value. Although make sure that at checkout you double check which fixed miles they have you down for. Its a massive pain to get it changed afterwards via the Hilton Honors team.

  5. All 3 of these bonuses have posted within a day of the stay posting – so 9k VS miles in total (3k base + 6k bonus). Such a shame fixed miles is disappearing – here’s hoping they still have these airline bonuses though!
