Hilton HHonors has another frequent flyer miles bonus for double miles with American AAdvantage and United Mileage Plus along with AeroMexico, Avianca/Taca and MultiPlus for stays October 2 through December 31, 2012.

The main restriction on this offer is there are only about 250 participating Hilton properties focused on Latin America, Caribbean and USA hotels.

Then there are the outlier hotels, literally, like Hilton Garden Inn Stuttgart NeckerPark, Conrad Dublin and Hilton Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Hilton HHonors promotion registration required: HHonors.com/DoubleLAT.

You must select one of these airlines as your miles earning airline partner.

  • American Airlines AAdvantage
  • United Airlines Mileage Plus (includes Copa Airlines)
  • Club Premier AeroMexico
  • Avianca/Taca
  • MultiPlus Fidelidade (Brazilian loyalty points program)

  2. Ric, we have to move into a residence hotel in Orlando in mid December for one to six months. Of course I want to max my points. I have Hilton Gold, Hyatt Platinum and do not care much about the Marriott program. No status on anything else. Which hotel would you recommend? I have the Hilton Surpass and Hyatt cards but no other cards tied to hotels. Which bonus plans will benefit me the most? Tie ins with airlines? Such A nice problem to have! Are you in Chicago this weekend?

  3. @ZippyPam – I am not in Chicago.

    I am celebrating the 163rd anniversary of the signing of the California Constitution in Monterey with a weekend of historical events and tours.

    You have a lot of opportunities and a lot of variables with one to six months in hotels.

    Much depends on your willingness to hotel hop.

    Remember that several programs will not credit points once you go over 30 days in a hotel so check that fine print.

    An elite challenge would be good based on nights to get to a high tier quickly and earn more points.

    The calendar year change will impact you and reset your numbers to zero for 2013 so if you can start an elite challenge in December you will have the advantage of the December nights counting for a 60 day or 90 day challenge period and the new calendar year will not mean starting from zero towards elite status for 2013.

    The fall promotions will end and we do not know the winter offers yet. Look for offers based on nights and that can save you from switching hotels to maximize bonuses.

    The main thing to keep in mind is extended stay hotels have a lower points earning rate (usually 50%) in most programs. Marriott SpringHill Suites and Hilton Homewood Suites earn regular points, but watch out for earning miles with Homewood Suites. You are better taking points & points in most cases. The 9 points per dollar Hilton Surpass is a big bonus too.

    You should look at Hilton for points and status, go for fast-track elite with another program if it works, and look at the Fall promotions and see if there are good bonuses based on nights and not stays, and try to leverage other good bonuses in the winter.

    And be sure to check on the 30-day stay rule for the hotel chain you stay with to avoid losing out on points earnings.
