Hilton HHonors has started to drip feed a number of promotions into the market which offer bonus miles for people who choose the ‘Hilton HHonors points and airline miles’ collection option when staying.
(Hilton is unique in offering BOTH points and airline miles when you stay with them. You can, if you wish, elect to earn just points – which gets you a point bonus – but often it is worthwhile taking ‘points and miles’ because the airline miles are worth more than the extra points. This is very likely to be the case with the promotions here.)
Here are the deals so far:
Delta – 2,013 bonus miles on stays of 2 nights or more (valid on up to 7 stays), expires 30th June
Emirates – Earn up to 400% bonus miles. You earn 1,000 miles on your 2nd stay, 1,500 miles on your 3rd stay and 2,000 miles per stay from your 4th stay. There appears to be no limit to the number of stays you can do. Expires 30th June.
Miles & More – 2,000 miles when you stay a Friday, Saturday or Sunday at participating hotels, expires 30th June
United Airlines – 1,000 bonus miles on stays of 2 nights or more (valid on up to 5 stays), expires 30th June
Virgin Flying Club – I have posted about this before, but worth repeating that you can earn 4,000 miles per stay at certain hotels in London and Scotland
Nothing (yet?) for Avios this time round.
These deals should combine with the current points promotion outlined under the ‘Hotel Offers’ tab at the top of the page.
