    Hi All,

    Just got the email below from DL - I'm not sure if it's targeted or not. You can chose 3x airline miles or 2x HHonors points for stays July 1, 2011 - September 30, 2011.

    :)robin

    Last fall during the ATL DL DO, didn't the Hilton promo then give some MQMs, IIRC 2K per stay?

    If you don't want Delta miles, the Hilton promotion is good for double miles on other Hilton airline partners.

    It's funny, I debated where to put this thread....I chose DL since the offer originated from them. :)

    I agree with the judgment as it's more likely to influence people's if they can get DL miles for the hotel. The extra Hilton points are nice, but are less likely to impact decisions about what hotel to book in that if you do HH, you tend to book Hiltons anyway, regardless of bonuses (I think, others will argue I'm sure).

    Remember that MP allows double posting, so there's no reason not to do so when it can be helpful to someone.

    How long do DL miles from Hilton stays usually take to post? I'm beginning to wonder if something's misconfigured in my HHonors account, as I still have no DL miles for stays in mid-April.

    Remember, even if you take one or the other HH double dips. Another bonus is to use the HH credit card (at 6 to 1) you can get about 10x the regular points. Not a bad deal.

    I have enough airline points to go anywhere.....now I need to save up hotel points!

    IIRC last fall it took a long time, more than six weeks, but I'm not sure.

    The Hilton at the ATL DO last fall gave 500 MQM, and double RDM, they posted 10 days after the stay for me. ( I believe the RDM varied according to individual "double dip" profile settings with HHonors )

    I end up with a lot of Hilton stays on account of their massive coverage. My travel is split between places where Starwood and/or Hyatt are an option, and places where they are not. Where they aren't, I choose HH over Marriott or PC and this is about sufficient for gold easily and likely Diamond. Where they are, I've vaccillated between Starwood and Hyatt (frequently only one choice available) and will likely end up focusing on Starwood to get Plat - just not enough coverage on Hyatt. At that point Hyatt v. Hilton would be heavily influenced by promos.

    I have the most stays on Hilton, even though I seek out alternatives when viable.

    In general, I prefer hotel points at hotels. Absent status considerations or a particular hotel preference, the more attractive earning proposition would sway my decision. Free stay type promotions and the like tend to factor in more heavily, though.
