Hilton's newest deal for the holidays is a 100% buy-points bonus until November 26th. This deal isn't fantastic, but if you have upcoming Hilton stays that would be cheaper by using points purchased at half a cent each (instead of booking with cash), then this would be something worth considering.
- This deal is available when purchasing between 10,000 and 160,000 Hilton points.
- You can pool points into a single account from up to 10 other people, with an annual limit of two million points per calendar year.
- The deal ends on November 26th, 2019.
Hilton Honors doesn't have the most valuable points currency, so a deal like this depends heavily on your upcoming travel. You can usually purchase Hilton points for a penny each, and this 100% bonus is on par with the best offers we’ve seen in recent years. Previous 100% bonuses have required smaller minimum purchases (as little as 3,000 points last December and 5,000 points in June 2018), but those deals were also subject to a maximum of 80,000 points. With the current offer, each member can buy up to 160,000 points which will result in 320,000 added to your account after the bonus.
Now that Hilton members can pool points with up to 10 other accounts, your buying capacity is only limited by your network of trustworthy friends. If you need 400,000 points for an upcoming trip, you can recruit a spouse or friend to purchase the remaining points and pool them together for the redemption.
Before you get out your wallet, you'll want to do the math to make sure it's a better deal to buy points than to pay cash. If you can get a stay for 80,000 points compared to paying $500 in cash, go buy those points for $400 and pat yourself on the back. But it's far from a foregone conclusion that points will save you money, so make sure you do your homework.
Unless you're a Hilton pro, we highly discourage buying points speculatively with this type of deal. But, if you know your numbers, this deal is a rare chance to stockpile points at a price we only see a few times a year.
