5,000 British Airways bonus miles for Hilton stays

Earn up to 1,000 bonus British Airways miles per stay at Hilton brand hotels from April 1-June 30, 2011. Hilton HHonors promotion registration required at http://www.hiltonhhonors.com/BA5000 before hotel stays are eligible for bonus BA miles. 

A maximum 5,000 bonus British Airways miles may be earned from this promotion. 

Hilton HHonors now has three levels of miles earning among its hotel brands to complicate promotions. Here are the various earning rates for this British Airways promotion.

HHonors Fixed Miles:

  • Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites earn 100 BA miles per stay + 250 bonus BA miles per stay.
  • All other brands earn 500 BA miles per stay + 1,000 bonus BA miles per stay.
  • Home2 Suites is not eligible for fixed miles. 

HHonors Variable Miles:

  • All brands, except Home2 Suites earn 1 BA mile/$1 + 1,000 bonus BA miles per stay.
  • Home2Suites earn 1 BA mile/$1 + 250 bonus BA miles per stay. Update April 28 – It appears Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites are only being credited with 250 bonus miles per stay. The original advice given in this post for earning 1,000 bonus BA miles on Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites stays appears to be incorrect.

Loyalty Traveler Advice: Choose Points & Variable Miles earning preference for stays at Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites.

  • Fixed miles = 350 miles (250 bonus BA miles toward 5,000 miles maximum).

  1. Fantastic little bonus, as I have to a short stay at a Hampton Inn next month. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. For what it’s worth, I just had a stay at a Hampton Inn with Variable BA Miles and ended up getting 250 miles instead of 1000.

    I am going to take a snapshot of the T&Cs on the signup page, which does does not list Hampton Inns as getting 250 points, and will contact customer service to get my posting corrected. Of course, they might also argue that the T&Cs are incorrect and as a mere Silver member I may not get much love from them.

  3. @Oliver – Let us know what HHonor says regarding the miles for Hampton Inn.

    I’ll see if I can get clarification from HHonors on the Hampton/Homewood miles next week.

    HHonors should post 1,000 miles for Hampton Inn stays for members with an earning preference of variable miles or change the promotion terms if they include these two brands with Home2 Suites as only eligible for 250 miles.
