This Hilton Points Purchase promotion has ended, however, you can still purchase Hilton points.
Hilton has launched a promotion where you can receive a 100% bonus on purchased Hilton Honors points through May 3, 2017.
The offer is relatively straightforward with few terms and conditions:
- Valid through May 3, 2017
- Minimum purchase of 5,000 points to receive the 100% bonus
- Maximum purchase per year 80,000 points
Regarding costs, buying the maximum amount of points will yield a total of 160,000 points, which works out to 0.5 cents per point.
Maximizing Value from The Offer
If you have some stays planned, you can take advantage of the offer to save yourself quite a bit of cash. Even with purchasing points, the cost for a night will generally work out cheaper at high-end Hilton properties using points rather than paying cash.
You can get more value if you have status with Hilton since Silver, Gold, and Diamond members receive the 5th-night free perk. At a high-end Hilton property, this can lead to substantial savings. If you do not have status with Hilton, you could consider signing up for one of the Hilton co-branded credit cards from either Citibank or American Express which come with either complimentary Silver or Gold status within the Honors program. Cards to consider include:
- The Platinum Card® from American Express receives Hilton Honors Gold status
- The Business Platinum® Card from American Express receives Hilton Honors Gold status
Buying points or miles speculatively is generally not recommended; it is always better to hold cash. However, with a generous 100% bonus, you should consider taking advantage of this offer, particularly if you have some stays planned at Hilton Hotels in the next year or so, then you can enjoy some great savings with this timely promotion.
