Another Hilton First Quarter Bonus: Airline Miles
No interest in Hilton's bonus-points promotion for first-quarter stays?
If double or triple airline miles are more in keeping with your loyalty program strategy, one of these bonuses may fit the bill.
Between January 1 and March 31, Hilton HHonors members can earn bonus airline miles for stays at participating Hilton, Conrad, Doubletree, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations Club, Homewood Suites, and Waldorf Astoria hotels, as follows:
- Air Canada - double miles
- American - double miles
- Delta - 2,012 bonus miles for two-night stays
- US Airways - triple miles
Be sure to check the list of participating properties as fewer than 500 of the chain's roughly 3,700 hotels award the Air Canada, American, and US Airways bonus miles. The good news for U.S. travelers: The great majority of the participating hotels are in the U.S.
More good news: The airline-mile bonuses may be combined with Hilton's "More Points" promotion, in effect during the same period.
Deal or No Deal
Stays at most Hilton hotels earn 500 miles with the above four airlines. So double miles would be 1,000 miles per stay, while triple miles would be 1,500.
By themselves, the mileage bonuses are of only moderate interest. However, when combined with the "More Points" promotion—and especially the 5,000-point bonus for weekend stays—these airline offers are worth a serious second look.
