Hilton has a new double Velocity points offer for Virgin Australia frequent fliers for hotel stays between May 1 and July 31, 2013. You can register for this offer here.
You normally earn 1000 points per stay that is doubled to 2000 during the promotional period.
Note that you need to have Points & Fixed miles chosen as your Hilton HHonors Double Dip option and Virgin Australia as the partner program. Virgin Australia doesn’t participate to the Points & Variable Miles option.
Also, if you have stays other than Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, Hilton, DoubleTree, Embassy Suites, Hilton Garden Inn and Hilton Grand Vacations brands, you won’t earn Velocity miles.
You can read more about Hilton HHonors Double Dip options here.
You can also win one of the three vacation packages that Hilton and Virgin Australia have up for grabs. In order to win, you need to be the Velocity member that earns the highest number of Velocity points from Hilton stays in the month of May, June or July.
This could be a nice promo for Virgin Australia Velocity members that stay at Hilton hotels.
