Virgin Flying Club has now launched its own Hilton HHonors promotion, which has the benefit of being available any night of the week.
You will receive 1,500 bonus Flying Club miles on your next stay, 2,000 on your second and 2,500 on your third. This is available at any brand in the Hilton Group, including Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria and Hampton.
Here are the rules:
Yours stays must be completed before 31st January 2014
You must register in advance of your stay at this website
Virgin Flying Club must be selected as your ‘double dip’ partner and your Hilton account set to one of the two ‘Points and Miles’ options.
The bonus points are on top of your standard Flying Club miles earning, which is 1000 miles per stay
This promotion would also combine with Hilton’s main ‘More Nights More Points’ promotion I reviewed here.
As Alan points out in the comments below, there is an interesting tweak to this promotion which makes it attractive even if you have no interest in Virgin Flying Club miles.
You can transfer Virgin miles into Hilton HHonors points at the rate of 1:2, with a minimum transfer of 10,000. Details on the Virgin Atlantic website here. If you register for this promotion, you would earn 9,000 Virgin Flying Club miles from your three stays – 3 x 1000 base miles plus 6000 bonus miles.
If you earned another 1000 Virgin miles (via a Tesco transfer, Heathrow Rewards, Amex Membership Rewards transfer, another hotel stay, car hire, a flight etc) then you would have 10,000. Transfer those to Hilton, and you’ve got an extra 20,000 points in your account.
