If you stay at Hilton family hotels such as the Conrad, Hilton of DoubleTree chains, then you will be interested in the latest offer from Hilton HHonors. From March 1 through to May 31, 2015, they are running a ‘Double Your HHonors’ promotion, offering either Double Points in the HHonors program, or Double Airline miles, if you collect miles in the Double Dip feature of HHonors.
During the registration process, you will need to choose between Double Hilton points or Double Airline miles. Whichever you choose, you will be unable to change your selection – so choose carefully.
If you select to double your HHonors points, you will receive a bonus equal to the number of base points you’d normally earn. Any other bonus points, such as the status bonus is not doubled.
If you select double Airline Miles. You will receive double the normal points that would be paid. You will need to have selected to double dip (the Points and Miles earning option) to Airline Miles, and have selected your preferred Airline partner.
Locally, Hilton HHonors is partnered with both the Qantas Frequent Flyer and Virgin Australia Velocity Frequent Flyer programs. The normal earn rate on the Double Dip is on Qantas Point or two Velocity Points per US$1 charged to your room while staying in-house. Under the promotion, this will double to two or four points respectively.
The promotion has an extensive list of non-participating properties, although fortunately all Australia properties have chosen to participate in this promotion.
Remember, you will need to register for this promotion.
