Hilton HHonors has another frequent flyer bonus offer for 250 Delta elite qualifying miles and double redeemable miles for 2-night stays from October 1 through December 15, 2012.
Registration is required at HHonors.com/deltamqm before hotel check-out to earn bonus MQM and double miles for your stay. This offer may be earned unlimited times during promotion period.
This is a relatively clear promotion for Points & Fixed Miles earners.
To be eligible for this offer, you must:
- (1) select Delta Air Lines as your preferred Double Dip® Points & Miles Partner in your Hilton HHonors account profile,
- (2) complete a minimum 2-night stay at a hotel or resort within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio from October 2, 2012 through December 15, 2012, and
- (3) register online at HHonors.com/deltamqm prior to check-out.
The fine print details get more confusing for Points & Variable Miles earners.
Bonus Delta Mileage (Variable Miles Members):
HHonors Delta Promotion: For qualifying stays at HOME2 Suites by Hilton hotels, earn up to 100 bonus miles per qualifying stay + 250 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs).
Loyalty Traveler Comment: Home2 Suites earns a maximum of 100 miles per stay regardless if choosing Fixed Miles or Variable Miles. Fixed miles guarantees 100 miles and 100 bonus miles with this offer. Since the bonus miles requires a two night stay, you will also earn 100 miles and 100 bonus miles with variable miles since you are almost certainly spending more than $100 for a 2-night stay.
HHonors Delta Promotion: For all other Hilton Worldwide brands, earn 1 bonus mile for every U. S. dollar spent on a qualifying stay + 250 MQMs.
Loyalty Traveler Comment: You will get more miles choosing Variable Miles when staying at Hampton Inn or Homewood Suites where the Fixed Miles rate is capped at 100 miles. You will almost certainly be spending more than $100 for an eligible 2-night stay so choose Variable Miles earning for Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites.
Bonus Delta Mileage (Fixed Miles Members): Earn 500 bonus miles per qualifying stay + 250 MQMs at Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton, Embassy Suites by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and Hilton Grand Vacations.
Earn 100 bonus miles per qualifying stay + 250 MQMs at Hampton Inn, Hampton by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton.
Earn up to 100 bonus miles per qualifying stay + 250 MQMs at Home2 Suites by Hilton.
