UPDATE – JANUARY 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
Click here for our article on Hilton’s current ‘Points Unlimited’ promotion which runs until 2nd May 2021. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
I have written a few posts in recent weeks about specific airline promotions running with Hilton.
The Virgin Atlantic promotion I covered here is probably the most generous. Other versions include:
Miles & More – up to 2,000 miles per stay (no maximum earning)
Emirates – 5,000 Skywards miles after 2 stays (once only per Hilton account)
Virgin Australia – triple Velocity points (no maximum earning)
Delta – 250 Medallion Qualifying Miles per stay (no maximum earning)
The British Airways / Avios variant has now appeared. The link to sign up is here. It is not desperately exciting, though.
Once you have registered via the link above, you will earn a one-off bonus on your next Hilton stay. The bonus is 1,000 Avios for a BAEC Blue member, 1,500 for a Bronze member, 2,000 for a Silver member and 3,000 Avios for a Gold member.
The deadline for completing your stay is 31st December. Your account must be set to ‘points and fixed miles’ in order to receive the bonus, with BA selected as your airline partner.
This is hardly going to set the world alight. You can, however, claim it alongside Hilton’s other promotion – “1,000 Reasons” – which I wrote about here, so letting you claim 2 bonuses on one stay.
Think seriously about the Virgin promotion before signing up for the BA one, though, as that is far more generous if you are a regular Hilton visitor.
How to earn Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards (January 2021)
There are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
