Last quarter Delta and Hilton run a promotion for Medallion Qualifying miles. This time they have teamed up to offer 2012 bonus Delta SkyMiles per two night or longer Hilton stay. These points are addition to the variable miles or fixed miles that you can earn if you choose the double dip option.
This promotion is valid from January 2nd to March 31st, 2012. You need to register for this promotion before check out at www.HHonors.com/delta2012. The terms and conditions indicate that this offer is not combinable with other offers.
Terms & Conditions: To be eligible for this offer, you must (1) select Delta Air Lines as your preferred Double Dip® Points & Miles™ Partner in your Hilton HHonors™ account profile, (2) complete a minimum 2-night stay at a participating hotel or resort in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio from January 2, 2012 through March 31, 2012, and (3) register online at www.HHonors.com/delta2012 prior to check-out. You must be a Hilton HHonors member to earn Points & Miles for hotel stays. Bonus Delta Mileage (Both Fixed & Variable Miles Members): Earn 2,012 bonus miles per qualifying stay of 2-nights or more. Allow up to six weeks after promotion has ended for bonus miles to be credited to your account. All SkyMiles program rules apply. To review these rules, please visit www.delta.com/skymiles. Hilton HHonors membership, earning of Points & Miles and redemption of points are subject to HHonors Terms and Conditions.
It should not, however, prevent signing up and taking advantage of the following thee offers; Instant Gold status and 40K HH bonus points after four stays (Gold’s and Diamonds eligible for the bonus points), Resort Escapes promotion (free night certificate after five night contiguous resort stay or two after ten nights), and the More Points promotion (extra 1000 bonus points per night + 5000 additional points for two nights or longer weekend stay).
My personal favorite Hilton HHonors double dip fixed mile partner is BMI (British Midland International). You earn 1000 BMI Diamond Club miles per night up to three nights regardless of the Hilton brand. Unfortunately Diamond Club will most likely cease to exist at the end of this quarter once IAG, parent of British Airways and Iberia, has completed the deal that they have signed with Lufthansa.
