Hilton offering bonus miles with various airlines

UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2020:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 ‘Double Rewards’ promotion which runs until 31st December 2020. You can register for the offer by clicking here.

Hilton is also offering a 100% bonus when you buy points until 31st December 2020. The website to buy points, and find out more, is here.

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.)

Hilton Gold

Here are the deals so far:

Delta2,013 bonus miles on stays of 2 nights or more (valid on up to 7 stays), expires 30th June

EmiratesEarn 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 & More2,000 miles when you stay a Friday, Saturday or Sunday at participating hotels, expires 30th June

United Airlines1,000 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 Promos’ tab at the top of the blog.

    I used the public sector rate code PR11PN for the virgin promotion and all the points have posted for 3 different stays now. No ID was asked.

      That’s good to hear. 4,000 Virgin miles per stay and 40% off is not bad going! May even be worth a mattress run if you live in a suitably cheap part of the country.

    I’ve found a couple of fairly cheap rooms at hotels included in the Virgin london and Scotland promotion. However, these are advance purchase and non-refundable rooms. In the terms and conditions of this room type it states “This rate is not combinable with any other offers and promotions and is not available to groups.”

    On the registration page for the virgin points promo, the T&C’s state there that “may not be combined with any other select promotions, discounts or offers”

    Will I still be eligible if I book an advance room?

    • Rob says:

      Very unlikely to be a problem – I have never heard of Advance Purchase Hilton rooms not counting for promotions. Priority Club, well that’s a different story!

      • Alan says:

        Agreed, generally not an issue with Hilton. I did have a problem in October though when there was a Conrad/United promo on and they tried to deny me the points as they said the promo didn’t allow for the ‘Great Getaway’ AP bookings. I pointed out that there was nothing showing it as an excluded rate and they relented.

        So in general I wouldn’t expect any problems, but if any do occur then just push your case!
