This Hilton Points Purchase promotion has ended, however, you can still purchase Hilton points.
Hilton has launched a promotion where you'll receive a 100% bonus in points when you purchase at least 5,000 points through June 7, 2018.
- The promo is valid through 11:59 PM ET June 7, 2018
- Minimum purchase of 5,000 points to receive a 100% bonus
- You can purchase a maximum of 80,000 points per calendar year
- Points will post to your account within 24 hours
- Prices include all taxes and fees
Remember that Hilton points purchases are processed by Points.com, so there is no room to maximize your earnings through credit card category bonuses. Your best option is to use an everyday spending card.
Is It Worth It?
If you max out the promo you will pick up 160,000 points for $800, which works out at half a cent a point–a fair price for Hilton Honors points. If you’re a budget savvy traveler 160,000 points can get you a pile of nights at Hilton properties worldwide.
If you are more interested in redemptions at premium properties, then 160,000 points can still give you 2 to 4 nights at a high-end property depending on the time of your stay. Remember, you can stretch the value of your points even further if you hold elite status with Hilton Honors, since you can use the 5th night free on redemptions perk.
Hilton Honors points purchases are processed by Points.com, which eliminates the chance of maximizing your earnings through credit card category bonus spend.
The easiest way to achieve status with Hilton Honors is via credit card enrollment, with both The Platinum Card® from American Express, and the Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card providing complimentary Gold status with Hilton, while the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card provides complimentary Diamond status.
Buying Hilton points for half a cent a piece is tempting. While speculatively buying points is not to be recommended, if you are a regular at Hilton properties, then this promo can deliver some great value if you're looking to cash them in. It is worth a few minutes reviewing any upcoming trips you may have and giving it a second thought crunching some numbers before acting or not acting on this promotion.
