Hilton HHonors has a bonus offer for Virgin Atlantic Flying Club members for up to 6,000 bonus miles for three stays between October 1 and January 31, 2014.
You earn 1,500 bonus miles on your first stay, 2,000 bonus miles on your second stay and 2,500 bonus miles on your third stay for a total maximum of 6,000 bonus miles.
You need to have Points and Fixed or Variable Miles Double Dip option chosen and have Virgin Atlantic Flying Club as the partner program.
Whether you should choose fixed or variable miles, is dependent of the brand that you are staying at and the eligible folio amount. In general you are better by choosing fixed miles for stays, when the eligible folio amount is less than $500 and variable miles when it is higher. You can read more about Hilton HHonors Double Dip options here.
Remember that you can convert Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles back to Hilton HHonors at 1:2 rate. 6,000 bonus miles would convert to 12,000 Hilton HHonors points.
You need to register for this offer on Hilton’s website here.
Virgin Atlantic is now my default Double Dip partner for one night Hilton stays (used to be BMI). If you have no use for Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles, you can always convert them back to Hilton HHonors points.
