From Sept 1- Dec 31, Hilton guests who want to earn Delta elite status, have a pretty good deal. You can choose 2 options:
1) Delta Mileage (Variable Miles Members): Earn 1 bonus mile + 1 Medallion Qualification Mile (MQM) for every U. S. dollar spent on a qualifying stay, up to a maximum of 10,000 MQMs.
2) Bonus Delta Mileage (Fixed Miles Members): Earn 500 bonus miles + 500 MQMs per stay. (maximum of 10,000 MQMs.)
For me, this is attractive- because I don’t have as much flying this fall, but a lot of hotel stays. I can’t bear the thought of dropping a Medallion level, so I may bank some of my hotels to Hilton to pad my Delta account.
To get the MQMs, make sure you have Delta selected as your Double Dip airline partner.
This card is one of several solid options for Hilton guests, and it offers some outstanding benefits like no annual fee, complimentary HHonors Silver status and getting the fifth night free on award redemptions. This card also lets you upgrade to HHonors Gold status when you $20,000 on the card in a calendar year or complete four eligible stays within the first 90 days of account opening.
