UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2020: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
You will earn 1,000 bonus Avios for EVERY weekend night (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) you spend in a Hilton Group property before 16th December. All brands are included – Hilton, Conrad, Hampton Inn, Waldorf-Astoria etc, although Hampton and Homewood Suites only offer 200 bonus points.
These points are on top of the usual 750 Avios points per stay that you earn when you credit a Hilton stay to Iberia Plus.
To take part, you need to register here. Some people have reported difficulty with registering – if it doesn’t work, try a different browser.
To earn the bonus Avios, you need to set your Hilton HHonors earning preference to either ‘Hilton Points & Fixed Miles’ (in which case you earn 750 base Avios plus the bonus) or ‘Hilton Points & Variable Miles’ (in which case you earn 1.5 Avios per US$1 plus the bonus). You do NOT get the bonus Avios if your account is set to ‘Hilton Points & Hilton Points’.
The rules say that stays must be booked after registration. My feeling, though, is that stays you have already booked will still qualify. That said, if you have a flexible booking and the price is the same then you may not want to take the risk.
The rules also say that the bonus Avios may take six weeks to appear in Iberia Plus. From there, you can move them to BA or avios.com using ‘Combine My Avios’.
