Nutmeg Avios

Earn 3,500 Miles & More miles with two Hilton stays

I covered the two recent Iberia and British Airways Hilton promotions in recent days.  The best one is the Iberia Plus version (compare with the BA Hilton promo here) which gets you:

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.)

    I had registered for the double HH points and also for the Iberia bonus and only got the double HH show, are the bonuses stackable?

    • Definitely, has been confirmed by quite a few of us and also fits with how Hilton historically handle these deals. Did you register for the Iberia offer? Did you change your earning preference to points and miles? Did you confirm they had your Iberia number at checkin/checkout? What posted to your account?

    • i received both as- stayed 2 nights in London last week and got 10770HH points and 1170 Avios (Iberia).

      NB: I also received 2500 bonus HH (taking total for that stay to 13020HH) coz before booking I contacted Hilton to see if they can entice me: offered 2500 if I stay within 30 days of making enquiry.

    • Yes, readers have already got both.

    Is it worth opening a Miles and More account specifically for this or not really? – we have a stay booked this week and I’d be surprised if we weren’t in another Hilton before the end of August

  3. Do you have to charge something to the room to get all theses bonuses? We have two stays booked in Aug in USa but haven’t paid for the rooms yet? Is the room bill enough to trigger theses bonuses and also the 2500 pts for the credit card in the first year?

    • On a non-reward stay the room charge is all that’s needed to trigger earning points & any bonus points. This includes ‘pay at time of booking’ stays.

      If it’s a reward stay then you will need to charge something (room service, drinks in the bar, etc) to the room.

      • Agree, although as Diamond I’ve found I always get the points anyway as you get the 1000 points per stay regardless and that seems to be enough to trigger the rest.

  4. Hi
