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.

  1. I signed up for both the Delta 250 MQM and double airline points AND the 1000 points per night bonuses. I have Points & Fixed Miles selected. Am I going to get both for my trip to NYC next month, or only the Delta one? Should I only have signed up for one?

  2. @Ibotez – While the Delta offer terms do not specifically state the offer may be combined with other promotions (it was one of the early miles offers to be released), subsequent bonus miles promotions that came out do specifically state the promotion can be combined with other offers.

    I assume you will get both bonus miles and points since HHonors Double Dip allows a member to earn both points and miles each stay and therefore bonus points and bonus miles with each stay using these two promotions.

  3. Thanks for the tip Ric. Anyone know if we can expect taxes or fees on top of using points?

  4. Why don’t Hilton nor the airlines advertise this promotion?
    This is the first time I’ve heard of it, despite searching prior to my stay earlier this month :(

  5. Recent Stayer — I got more than one email from Hilton HHonors about these promotions. Are you sure you are signed up to receive email from Hilton? Maybe you didn’t check the box to receive mail from them?
