Hilton serves up double Qantas, Virgin Australia frequent flyer points

Staying at HHonors-linked hotels such as Hilton, Conrad, Waldorf Astoria and DoubleTree over the coming months? Register for Hilton HHonors' latest promotion and you'll pick up double points on every stay.

Beginning this Sunday, March 1 and running through through May 31, you can choose to either double your HHonors points or your frequent flyer points, depending on which you'd prefer more of.

Hilton is a partner to both Qantas Frequent Flyer and Virgin Australia Velocity Frequent Flyer and normally dishes out either one Qantas Point or two Velocity Points per US$1 spent in-house to members who select the 'Points and Miles' earning option.

With double frequent flyer points, that increases to two and four frequent flyer points per US dollar, respectively, while still earning your normal chunk of HHonors points on the side.

Or, if you select to double your HHonors haul, you'll receive a bonus equal to the number of base points you'd otherwise earn – not on your full bounty that would ordinarily include bonus points in recognition of your Silver, Gold or Diamond membership status.

All Australian Hilton HHonors partner hotels are taking part in the deal, although the same can't be said for overseas – notably missing from the list are The Trafalgar London, Hilton Checkers Los Angeles and Hilton Boston Downtown/Faneuil Hall hotels.

Otherwise, be sure to register for 'Double Your HHonors' via the Hilton website and stay as many times as you like with any participating hotel until May 31.

Was happy about this promotion till I noticed the hotel I'm staying at in Hawaii in April isn't participating (as are a LOT of US hotels).

i saw the offer on the hilton site but it was asking me to make bookings which i dont need to do because they already have been made  - Homewood Suites, Conrad, Doubletree and Hilton for the next 6 weeks, so I called Hilton and they said you can only register from 1st March onwards and it will then be automatic (if the hotel is participating) with the double points.
