Earlier in the week, I wrote (access here) that Hilton HHonors Double Dip partners that only participate to Fixed Miles option would be gone in January due to Hilton abolishing the fixed option altogether.
This was based on the email received from Hilton HHonors and it was wrong.
Hilton representative approach me with information that all the partners that have only participated to Fixed miles option will now convert to variable miles under the following schedule:
1 Airline mile (or airline point, depending on the partner) per USD spent on eligible folio
- Aerolineas Argentinas
- Deutsche Bahn
- Air China
2 airline points per USD spent on eligible folio
- Virgin Australia
It is good that these partners will remain, but it doesn’t change the fact that this Double Dip option is only a shadow of its previous self come January 6, 2014.
