Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Earn up to QUADRUPLE Avios on Hilton stays this Summer

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

UPDATE – JUNE 2021:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 ‘More Nights More Points’ promotion which runs until 6th September 2021. You can register for the offer by clicking here.

You will receive a 100% bonus when you buy 15,000+ Hilton Honors points by 8th July. Click here for more details.

Tucked away in the Iberia magazine this month are details of a forthcoming Hilton HHonors promotion.

You cannot register for it yet but it should be live on Thursday.

For some people, this may be more attractive than the main Hilton HHonors promotion ‘Unlimited Bonus‘. This offers double Hilton points on all your stays as this article explains.  It may also be possible to double dip by registering for both offers.

The registration link should be here from Thursday.

Hilton Park Lane

The Hilton / Iberia promotion will work like this:

It will run from 12th May to 30th August

You must register, set your Hilton acccount to ‘Points and Miles’ and select Iberia as your airline partner

You will receive double Avios on your first stay

You will receive triple Avios on your second stay

You will receive quadruple Avios on your third stay

As a reminder of the earning rates:

If you choose points, you earn 10 base points and 5 Hilton HHonors bonus points per $1 spent (doubled under the ‘Unlimited Bonus’ promotion)

If you choose miles, you earn 10 base points per $1 and 15 Iberia Plus Avios per $10 spent (with the Avios doubled, tripled or quadrupled under this promotion)

Based on what happened last year, you may be able to double dip with Unlimited Bonus AND this mileage offer.  Register for both offers and it is possible that your stay will generate double base points (20 Hilton HHonors points per $1) AND 2x / 3x / 4x Avios.

This could be very lucrative if you could double up.  A £100 stay would translate to $140.  Assuming it was your 3rd stay during the period, you would receive:

1,400 base Hilton HHonors points

1,400 ‘Unlimited Bonus’ bonus points

840 Avios

Based on a valuation of 1p per Avios and 0.3p per Hilton HHonors point, your rebate would be 17%.

You MUST register for the bonus Avios promotion.  The registration link will be here from Thursday but is not currently active.

Whilst this is an Iberia Plus offer, I expect a similar BA offer to appear as well.  It is more lucrative to credit Hilton stays to Iberia, however, since the rate is 15 points per $10 rather than 1 point per $1 for BA.

Remember that you can move Avios from Iberia Plus to British Airways Executive Club via ‘Combine My Avios’ as long as your Iberia account is 90 days old.

    ridiculously stupid question…but should I enter my Iberia account number prefixed with or without the “IB”?

    thanks in advance people.

  • where2travel says:

    Any idea how to check if the registration has worked. After entering details, you normally get a “You are registered” type message. This time I don’t – it goes onto a separate page with some T&Cs which is promising but not quite the confirmation I was hoping for.

    • Rob says:

      If you try again, do you get ‘you are already registered’?

      • Alan says:

        Not sure about others, but I had initial successful registration on my phone (not the usual confirmation message, but something vaguely positive!), however retrying since on the laptop just shows a page that bad the usual Hilton logos, etc but a blank box where the successful message would normally be. Not quote the normal behaviour on Hilton for these promos, but hopefully all good!
