Buy Hilton Honors Points with an 80% Bonus

Hilton Honors has returned with another opportunity to buy Hilton Honors Points with a substantial bonus attached, in this case 80% if you buy at least 5,000 Points. The promotion will run from now until 16 March, 2018.

Hilton Honors members can buy up to 80,000 Points every calendar year, with any bonuses applicable on top. So, if you were to buy the 80K maximum, you would receive 144,000 Points.

Thank to the bonus, you would end up paying 0.56 US cents per Point (0.4p thanks to some recent strength in sterling). Whether this makes sense depends on whether you desperately need Points today:

  • Occasionally we see 100% bonuses which are obviously better – so you should wait for a better deal if you can
  • If you are on the verge on booking an award – probably on a fifth night free basis – then this promotion might provide you with better value than converting Virgin Atlantic miles or paying the cash rate

The easiest way to access the promotion is to log in to your Honors account and look for the “Buy Points” section.

I won’t be looking to buy Hilton Honors Points at this price, but maybe some readers will. Does this promotion tempt you?

    is there any expiration of those points? Like 1 year from purchase?
    And how often appear that offer 100% bonuses, once a year?


    • Craig Sowerby says

      Points don’t expire if your account remains active.

      It’s hard to say with any certainty when the next 100% bonus will arrive. Sometimes it is structured as a 50% discount as well.

    This seems like a reasonable way to help maintain Diamond Status: buy 140k points, redeem them for 14 1-night stays at a Hampton, which is nearly half way to Diamond on a stays basis. Works out to be approximately £40/night.

    • Craig Sowerby says

      A lot depends on whether you have a convenient 5-10K per night hotel near to work, home, etc. But indeed you can very cost effectively reach Gold or Diamond status with cheap point stays.
