ATLANTA, Dec. 2, 2008 – Hilton HHonors® and Delta Air Lines® have announced the launch of one of their most rewarding promotions. The new offer allows Hilton HHonors and Delta SkyMiles members to Double Dip® to earn HHonors points plus SkyMiles and earn six times the number of miles typically awarded.
The promotion is available to HHonors members and SkyMiles members who register at HiltonHHonors.com/sixtimesthemiles, then book and stay at any participating Hilton Family hotel between Dec. 1 and Feb. 28, 2009.
“Delta and Hilton, our preferred hotel partner, have created this generous offer to reward Hilton HHonors and Delta SkyMiles members for their ongoing loyalty,” said Jeff Robertson, Delta’s vice president of Loyalty Programs. “With our service to 375 destinations in 66 countries and nearly 1,500 participating Hilton Family hotels worldwide, there are abundant opportunities for members to earn miles.”
“We are very excited to be teaming up with Delta to provide this exceptionally rewarding promotion,” said Adam Burke, senior vice president, customer loyalty, Hilton Hotels Corporation. “As the only program to offer Points & Miles® and No Blackout Dates, Hilton HHonors is constantly looking for ways to reward members. This alliance with Delta demonstrates our commitment to providing our members with value and options.”
Registered HHonors members staying during the promotional period will be able to sextuple their miles whether they Double Dip with Hilton HHonors to earn Points & Variable miles or Points & Fixed miles.
- An HHonors member earning Points & Variable miles typically earns 10 Base points and 1 airline mile for every eligible dollar charged to their room. Now, during the promotional period HHonors members can earn 10 HHonors Base points and 6 Delta SkyMiles for every eligible dollar charged to their room providing a fast way to earn both free nights and award travel flights.
- An HHonors member earning Points & Fixed miles typically earns 10 Base points per eligible dollar charged to their room and 500 airline miles per stay (100 miles per stay at Hampton® and Homewood Suites by Hilton® hotels) allowing members to maximize their mileage earnings during shorter stays. Now, during the promotional period, HHonors members can earn 10 Base points per dollar and 3,000 Delta SkyMiles per stay (or 600 miles per stay at Hampton® and Homewood Suites by Hilton® hotels) and further maximize their mileage earnings during shorter stays.
HHonors members can also change their earnings style with every stay.
