Hilton Offering 100% Bonus on Purchased Points through June 7
Hilton Honors is currently offering a 100% bonus on purchased points from now June 7, 2018. You must purchase at least 5,000 points to get the bonus and the points should post to your account within 24 hours.
The price per point drops to 0.5 cents each when you factor in the 100% bonus. You can purchase up to 80,000 points (the annual maximum) for $800 and get 80,000 bonus points, bringing your total to 160,000 Hilton points. Hilton’s points sales are processed by Points.com, so you won’t earn any travel category credit card bonus.
Should You Buy?
As with most point sales, I wouldn’t recommend buying points unless you have specific redemptions in mind. If you’re planning a trip soon, go to Hilton.com and checkout the hotels in the city you’re visiting. If you can get more than 0.5 cents per point in value when you redeem points for your stay, then it would make sense to buy points since you end up saving money. In most cases you get the most value per point for booking high-end resorts.
