Is It Worth It?
Transferring points to Hilton for redemption at a high-end property may not be worth it. However, if you are a budget-savvy traveler, then there are some great options for redemptions with Hilton Honors. If you hold elite status with Hilton and are planning on a longer stay, then taking advantage of the promotion can be quite lucrative, especially if you can use Hiltons’ 5th night free on awards perk.
If you are short of a few thousand Hilton Honors points to hit a specific redemption, then this promotion may be worth considering. However, transferring a large number of points even with the transfer bonus will likely not provide a good value for your transfer. You are better off leveraging your Membership Rewards points with an airline transfer partner and cashing in on an international business or first class flight. Almost every time transferring your points to an airline will yield better value, transfer bonus or not.
