When I first write about the Hilton HHonors promotion of triple miles with select airlines for stays in the Latin America, Caribbean and Canada there was an unfortunate typo on Hilton’s website for this offer (as far as I can tell – or maybe I made a mistake). They listed hotels that had decided to opt out from this offer when these hotels were actually the ones participating.

This offer is valid for stays between September 1 – December 31, 2015, and requires registration. [click to continue…]

Marriott Rewards has various Travel Packages redemption options where for instance you get a 7 night hotel award + a variable number of airline miles in your chosen airline for a set number of points.

Marriott Rewards Travel Package

In my opinion, this is the best way to use Marriott Rewards points. You get a 7 night hotel award and then can “purchase” airlines miles at ONE Marriott Rewards point per ONE mile with Package 1 airlines. [click to continue…]

On October 29, I wrote about a new hotel booking engine PointsHound that awards frequent flier miles for bookings. For getting new members to sign up, the site was (and still is) offering 100 free Delta, United, Hawaiian, or AeroMexico miles to sign up for their service (no purchase required).

I did the sign up on that date and the 100 free miles posted to my United account on September 4.

If you haven’t signed up for the service yet and would like to receive the free miles, it would probably be the right time.

This is an excellent way to extend the validity of the miles that is trickered by any account activity. Also, you never know when even a small amount like 100 miles can come handy.

Conclusion

Very easy way to collect 100 miles and doesn’t even require purchase. Just for registering to their website is enough. You may want to have a look at their hotel booking engine at the same time as well.
