Hilton Offering 100% Bonus on Purchased Points through March 16
Hilton Honors is currently offering up to a 100% bonus on purchased points from now through March 16, 2018. All Hilton members are eligible to purchase points with an 80% bonus, whereas members with the Hilton Honors American Express are eligible to purchase points with the full 100% bonus. Points should post to your account within 24 hours.
The price per point drops to 0.5 cents each when you factor in the full 100% bonus. If you were to max out the promo, you could buy 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.
