What is the normal miles per dollar rate at Hilton? 2?

Is there a list of participating or non-participating hotels? I stopped staying at Hiltons as the hotels I typically stay in dropped out of the last two promos. Staying at Hyatt now. Might be worth switching back for this for a while

Historically, there are not excluded hotels in the MQM promo.

How does this play with the triple miles promotion that runs to the end of October?

HELP!

HELP! I completed this promo by registering for it, selecting Delta as my double-dip points program in my HHonors.com profile, I gave them my SkyMiles number and I completed a 2 night stay at the Hilton Elara in Las Vegas on October 13th and 14th.

I logged into my Delta SkyMiles account to check my activity and 402 base miles post on October 20th for the hotel stay, but there has yet to be 250 MQMs posted.

I tweeted @AskDelta and they said it can take up to 6 weeks. Don't you think the MQMs would have posted with the base miles?

Does anyone have experience with this promotion in how fast the MQMs post? The reason I ask is because I only need 48 more MQMs (after my next upcoming flight) to reach status for next year. My last flight for the year is coming up on October 31st and if the 250 MQMs aren't going to post, then I might as well upgrade to First Class to earn 1.5 miles and that'll push me over the top for next year instead of relying on this Hilton promotion.

Not sure what to do. Any advice?

Did you book your stay after you had registered? Typically that is a requirements to get the bonus.


"book and complete a two-night stay between October 6, 2014 and December 20, 2014" (emphasis mine)

I booked it before :-( I wish they would have said this. It just says you have to stay 2 nights between Oct. 6th and Dec. 20th.

I e-mailed Delta to fix it. I'll see what they say.

Does anyone know if I upgrade my upcoming flight to First Class, will I earn 1.5 miles then instead of just 1? I think that's how Delta works if I'm not mistaken (for 2014 at least.) If I just upgrade my ticket and pay for it then I would have enough miles for my status next year.

The T&C say select DL, stay 2 nights, and "(3) register online at HHonors.com/DELTAMQM prior to check-out." (emphasis added)

Below that, a note: "Allow up to six weeks after promotion has ended for bonus miles and MQMs to be credited to your account."

I did notice the six weeks after promo ends language. I think I'll give it another day and if still nothing I may just end up upgrading my ticket next week to First Class to earn the extra mileage.

I was reading an old thread hereon FlyerTalk and other members were seeing their MQMs post along with the miles from the stay or an average of about 10 days after their stay.

Delta was absolutely no help. They just e-mailed me back and was like "we don't see any promotions in your account...." so I think I would have to contact Hilton regarding this if I want to pursue it.

It is a Hilton Honors promotion, not a Skymiles [email protected]:-) You registered with Hilton Honors. Just wait, I am sure MQM will post eventually.

I called Hilton and they said to call Delta because they've already sent base miles from their end. Hilton stated that Delta handles the MQM miles.

Called Delta back this morning. Glad I did. The rep was very helpful and got someone else on the other line. They're showing that I only stayed 1 night at the Hilton. Therefore, Delta is contacting Hilton to confirm I stayed 2 nights and get this sorted out!
