Hilton Honors has launched new double Airpoints Dollars offer for Air New Zealand frequent fliers’ stays between March 7 – June 7, 2017.
Members can earn double Airpoints Dollars for stays worldwide and there is one member that will also win a prize of 1,600 of them.
You can access and register for this offer on Hilton’s website here.
Note that you must have your Hilton Honors earning preference set to Points + Miles and have Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars chosen as your preferred partner.
You can learn more about Double Dipping with Hilton Honors from my piece here.
This Air New Zealand’s Airpoints Dollars system is somewhat difficult to understand. You earn Airpoints Dollars instead of airline miles that you can use towards air fares on NZ. Then there is an award chart (rather expensive) for award flights on Star Alliance.
