Hilton is offering their best promotion for buying discounted Hilton Honors points. You can get a 100% bonus when you purchase at least 5,000 Hilton Honors Points. These points cost 1 cent each regularly so through this promotion you can grab them for just half a cent each. But, just because there’s a 50% discount, doesn’t automatically make this a good deal. Hilton Honors points are often valued at just 0.4 cents and maybe even less.
The 100% Points bonus with a minimum 5,000 Points purchase is available for purchases made between April 20, 2018, at 12:01am ET and June 7, 2018, at 11:59pm ET. Members may purchase a maximum of 80,000 points per calendar year. Points will be posted to the recipients Hilton Honors account within 24 hours of the completed transaction. The purchase is made through Points.com.
Should You Buy Hilton Points?
I’m not a fan of buying points. You will never be able to buy points at a price that’s better than the average valuation. If you need a big chunk of points, new Hilton credit cards will be your best and cheapest option. But buying points could make sense in some instances. If you just need a few thousand points towards a redemption you could transfer Membership Rewards points or go the buying route.
There’s also plenty of properties where you can get a value of over 1 cent each for your Hilton Honors points. While you can get good valuation you would also have to consider if you would be willing to pay prices of over $1,000 a night in cash. Here’s some properties where you can maximize the value of your points.
Purchasing Hilton Honors points at half a cent each is as cheap as it gets, but that’s only if you’re looking to purchase points. I would suggest looking at credit cards first.
