Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

1,000 bonus Avios per Friday / Saturday / Sunday with Hilton

Hilton HHonors has launched a rather attractive promotion in conjunction with Iberia Plus which is worth a look if need a hotel over a weekend this Autumn.

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.

Hilton Iberia promo

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’.

Remember to set your airline preference to Iberia Plus and NOT to British Airways Executive Club!  You will not receive the bonus if you select BA.

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’.

    Hilton still saying a 1000 point limit for Variable, had no joy getting it fixed yet. Beware!!!

    It seems you just need to have registered before checkout. I signed up yesterday having seen this post, then checked out of a Sun-Weds stay. I checked online this morning, and I’ve got “IBERIA AVIOS WEEKENDS FIXED MILES OFFER 0 0 1000” for it! (So that’s 1750 avios for the stay, yey!)

    Just a shame Hilton didn’t bother telling anyone about this themselves when it launched on the first, or I’d have got 2000 more miles :/

      Yep it’s when it posts to your account that’s the main issue with most (?all) Hilton promos, so as long as you have it on your account by that point you should be OK.

  • Mandy says:

    Is it 1000 extra per stay, or per night? Looks like per weekend night, so a Fri/Sat stay should be 2000 extra? Just want to double check though as might be better in my circumstances to book as a BA holiday instead, dependant on the answer.

    Hi – Does the weekend promo apply for points and cash booking. The new DoubleTree in Dublin is 37euro and 8000 points for this Sunday. Should I expect 1750 avios with Iberia?
