I am never a strong advocate of buying loyalty points. You rarely get good value, and a ridiculous part of me (the same part that spends 30 minutes doing a survey for 20 Nectar points) views it as a form of “cheating”.
However, a combination of the current Hilton 100% bonus on points purchases and some generally great Hilton redemption options means that the Hilton Honors 100% bonus deals are one of the few points purchase options I genuinely look out for. I don’t necessarily always buy, but there is often a good argument to do so.
The current 100% bonus was due to expire tomorrow, but has now been extended until 8 March.
Should you buy with a 100% bonus?
Sorry to abdicate responsibility, but this really is one worth crunching the numbers on depending on your personal circumstances.
If you’re tempted by a Hilton stay, have a look at:
- the cash cost of the stay
- the points cost of the stay
- the cost of buying those points with a 100% bonus
And then make your conclusions.
Note that if you’re a Silver Honors member or better, your fifth reward night (but not cash night) will be free, plus the current Hilton Honors points promo (giving you 2K Honors points per stay, plus 5K bonus points for 5 nights) will apply to reward stays.
