Hilton Honors is once again offering a 100% bonus when you purchase Honors Points.
The specific terms of the offer vary by customer. Some are receiving an 80% bonus offer, others a 100% bonus offer and in some cases the 80k points purchase limit is being doubled (allowing some to buy 320k points – 80k doubled to 160k, with a bonus 160k points).
The amount you need to buy to trigger the bonus also varies depending on the customer – I have seen both 3k minimums and 10k minimums. It appears the 3k minimum applies with the 80% bonus and the 10k with the 100% bonus, but there may be other variations.
The bonus points are available for purchases made between 6 November, 2018, at 12:01am ET and 18 December, 2018, at 11:59pm ET.
Is this a good deal?
Hilton Honors offers a variation on this deal quite frequently, so unless you need the Points soon, I wouldn’t be in too much of a rush to stock up. Particularly if you don’t have the 100% bonus.
The 100% bonus means that you would effectively be buying Hilton Points at a rate of around 0.38p (0.5 cents) per Point, which is a smidge under what I value them at. You’ll struggle to lose money buying at that price and with a specific redemption in mind could get good value here.
- Category 1 and Category 2 stays for ~£19 and ~£38 per night
- A few very expensive high Category hotels, like the Conrad Maldives
- ‘5th night free’ redemptions for Silver, Gold and Diamond member
It’s also worth bearing in mind that Points bookings are flexible and that there isn’t any additional taxes to pay, so you need to compare like with like when calculating whether buying and redeeming Points is better value than paying cash (also factor in the Points you would earn from a cash stay though).
