BMI Hotels Earning Q

This is probably a stupid question, but I just want to double check something. On the DC website it says you earn 500 miles per night for a 3* hotel booking. Underneath it says "Miles will be credited for one room per hotel stay and not for multiple bookings."

I am taking that to mean that if I book 1 room for 3 nights I'll get 1,500 miles, but if I book 2 rooms for 3 nights, I'll still only get the 1,500 points for the first room.

Is that correct?

Thanks

thats correct... although actually getting the miles to credit is the hardest part. Ive never had them credit automatically, and have always had to send in the email receipt to get them credited

Thanks for the quick reply, and the heads up about them not posting. Is there any reason why I can't book 1 room and have OH book 1 room through his DC account?

Well, I won't be booking with bmipedia again for sure. None of my stays was credited. Sent them a note explaining my stay has been charged in full at the time of booking, 2 months later miles have not been posted and no reply to my note. So, I printed my booking confirmation (which clearly states it is not refundable and my credit card was charged at the time of booking) and sent it (well actually them, as I already had two stays booked through their site in February) by regular mail. Two weeks later I got this e-mail from bmi stating they need an original copy of invoice to credit my miles.
Since I didn't use any additional services at any of these hotels, they didn't give me anything on the check-out. So I have lost the miles, I guess. A bit upset of loosing 2,000 miles, but lesson learnt - will be crediting my stays to a different FFP in the future.

Hmm, I might give that a miss then, I don't need the hassle and there's plenty of other places I can put the miles through.
