Loyalty Traveler points to a new promotion running through the end of the year that will provide 5000 Emirates Skywards points after two Hilton stays.
I’m not much interested in collecting points in the Skywards program, if I want to redeem for Emirates flights I’ll be more likely to transfer Starwood points to Japan Airlines and pretty soon we should be seeing details of the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan redemption chart for Emirates as well.
But what is interesting to me about this offer is that new accounts enrolling with this offer receive 1000 free Hilton HHonors points.
To participate, you must register at http://www.hiltonhhonors.com/skywards5000. Offer is valid for eligible stays completed after registration, at participating hotels between October 1 2012 and December 31 2012.
HHonors members choosing Fixed miles award will earn 500 base Skywards Miles for each of the first and second stays, plus 4,000 bonus Skywards Miles after their second stay only. HHonors members choosing Variable Miles award, will earn one Skywards Mile per one USD spent for the first and second stays, plus 4,000 bonus Skywards Miles after their second stay only.
Customers must be an HHonors member to earn bonus miles. Customers that are not HHonors members and who subsquently enroll in the programme will receive an additional 1,000 Hilton HHonors bonus points upon registration via this promotion only.
There is no mileage collection eligible for Hampton by Hilton and Home2Suites hotels. Hilton HHonors members must have their earning preference set to ‘Points & Miles’ and must have ‘Skywards’ as the preferred airline partner.
