Hilton HHonors has filled the last quarter of 2012 with bonus frequent flyer mile promotions for at least 26 airline partners. HHonors leads all hotel loyalty programs with over 60 airline partners for earning miles from hotel stays.
Double Dipping for HHonors Points & Miles means you can earn bonus miles from promotions while you also earn bonus points from the Q4 promotion. The primary HHonors points promotion for November 1-December 31 is 1,000 points per night Thursday through Monday nights. No bonus points for Tuesday and Wednesday stays.
Hilton 1,000 points per night for Thursday through Monday nights on stays November 1 – December 31, 2012. Check out the non-participating hotels carefully. Register here for the promotion. Loyalty traveler post October 16 Hilton 1,000 points per night Thursday to Monday Nov 1-Dec 31, 2012.
For many members airline promotions are likely the better value earning opportunity for the remainder of 2012 rather than earning Points & Points .
The main question is which HHonors airline promotion should you sign up for?
Each HHonors airline bonus miles promotion is different. Some of the airlines allow unlimited earning and some airlines apply bonus miles to only a few stays or even just one stay. Many of the frequent flyer bonus miles promotions started in October and a large set of new promotions started in November. Most of these offers end December 31, 2012.

Starwood W Hotels are one of the major success stories of hotel branding. Once a W Hotel, always a W hotel seems to be the story for this brand. One of my first experiences at a W Hotel was a stay in July 2003 at the W Sydney Woolloomooloo. This is one of the few W Hotel properties to rebrand out of the Starwood family in 2005. W Sydney is the W that got away – the lost W Hotel of Woolloomooloo.

Hyatt Gold Passport members can earn 1,000 British Airways miles per night, up to 30,000 miles for hotel stays worldwide from August 1 to October 31. Earning per night makes this offer especially valuable for extended stays during this period with no particularly attractive points bonus promotions currently happening with Gold Passport.
Hyatt Gold Passport British Airways miles Promotion registration is required.
You must provide your British Airways frequent flyer at check-in and request miles for your stay. This can be an inconvenience, but the advantage of this method is you can always change your earning back to points if some other good points bonus comes along before October 31; which I fully expect to happen before then.
500 miles per stay is the normal rate for earning miles with Hyatt Gold Passport. A three night stay using the British Airways promotion earns 3,000 miles or 6x normal earning rate. This is a good deal for British Airways Executive Club members.
Other Hyatt Miles Offers
Through September 30: Air Canada Aeroplan 2,500 miles per stay
There is also a good value Aeroplan mileage bonus of 2,500 miles per stay through September 30. This is 5x miles for one night stays at Hyatt. Registration is required for the Aeroplan bonus.
Through August 31: Southwest Airlines 1,800 Rapid Rewards points per stay. Registration required.
