UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 ‘Power Up’ promotion which runs until 31st December 2021. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
You will receive a 100% bonus when you buy Hilton Honors points by 30th September 2021. You can buy by clicking here.
double Avios on your first stay
triple Avios on your second stay
quadruple Avios on your third and subsequent stays
Lufthansa and Hilton have launched a similar promotion. This is more generous than the Avios offer unless you are spending substantial sums on your stay. If you collect Miles & More miles this is well worth a look.
Full details and the registration page can be found here. You need to:
register via this page
change your Hilton HHonors earning profile to ‘points and miles’ and
select ‘Miles & More’ as your airline partner
For your next two Hilton Group stays before 31st August you would receive:
1,500 bonus Miles & More miles on your first stay
2,000 bonus Miles & More miles on your second stay
You would ALSO receive double points on the ‘points’ bit of ‘points and miles’ if you register for the ‘Unlimited Bonus’ promotion as well – see here for details.
If you value Miles & More miles at 1p, this is an additional £15 to £20 rebate per stay on top of your base points and your base miles. That is not a bad result, especially on a cheap stay. The fact that you cannot buy Miles & More miles* means that opportunities to pick them up easily should be taken seriously.
(* whilst you can’t oficially buy Miles & More miles, there is a decent workaround. Buy Starwood Preferred Guest points and convert those. The price is not far off what you would expect to pay for Miles & More miles if they were sold directly.)
