Hilton is offering bonus Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles for Hilton stays between September 26 and December 31, 2012. The bonus structure is as follows:
- 1st stay: 1,000 bonus miles
- 2nd stay: 2,000 bonus miles
- 3rd stay: 3,000 bonus miles
- 4th stay: 4,000 bonus miles
- 5th stay: 5,000 bonus miles
You must select Virgin Atlantic as your preferred airline partner in your HHonors profile. Keep in mind these are bonus miles, and you still earn Hilton points and base miles (either fixed or variable) for your stay. In most cases you’re actually best off choosing to earn fixed miles for your stay, as you earn 1,000 Flying Club miles per stay in addition to the above bonuses and HHonors points. That means five Hilton stays will earn you a total of 20,000 Flying Club miles. The cool “trick” here is that Flying Club miles can be converted to Hilton HHonors at a 1:2 ratio, meaning you can turn those 20,000 miles into 40,000 HHonors points. That means you’re basically earning an average of 8,000 HHonors points for your first five Hilton stays through this promotion, which is an amazing return.
Registration is required prior to your stay in order to qualify.
