Hilton Honors has announced a points purchase promotion, where you will receive a bonus of up to 100% on purchases of over 3,000 Hilton Honors points. The promotion is valid through December 18, 2018. The promotion does not have a public webpage, and you will have to log in to see what offer you've got. Reports indicate that most Hilton members are being offered a bonus between 80% and 100%.
- The bonus is valid on purchases through December 18, 2018, at 11:59 pm ET
- You need to log in to your Hilton Honors account to see your offer
- Minimum purchase of 3,000 points is required
- You can purchase a maximum of 80,000 points per calendar year
- Points should post to your Hilton Honors account within 24 hours
If you opt to take maximum advantage of the promotion and purchase 80,000 points, you will end up with a total of 160,000 points (80,000 + 80,000) for a cost of $800. This works out at half a cent apiece, which is the best rate we have seen on the purchase of Hilton Honors points.
Maximizing The Promotion
Unfortunately, Hilton does not process its points purchases directly. Instead, it uses Points.com, which means you're not going to earn any category bonus on the purchase. If you decide to go ahead with the purchase, your best option is to use a card optimized for everyday spending.
We do not recommend buying any points or miles speculatively. That being said, this is the cheapest we have seen Hilton points, so if you have a specific redemption or use in mind, you may want to give this promotion some serious thought.
