Hilton Honors’ 100% Points Bonus Is Back – Should You Take Advantage?

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

Barely a week passed before Hilton Honors re-launched its standard promotion selling points with a 100% bonus. This version of the promotion will run until July 8, 2021 (but obviously it will return in some form soon after).

The Deal

Hilton’s regular price is 1 US cent per point (which you should NEVER consider).

With the 100% bonus, that price halves to 0.5 cents per point, so currently ~0.35p

You must buy at least 10,000 points to receive the 100% bonus. If you buy the maximum of 160,000 points, you will receive 320,000 points. Assuming that you have elite status with Hilton Honors, that is enough for a five-night stay at nearly every Hilton Honors hotel worldwide.

Should I Buy?

You might want to re-read my recent post explaining when to pay a cash rate and when to redeem points.

Due to the lucrative triple point promotion that is running until early September 2021, you are going to find it rather hard to find a reward stay that beats simply paying the cash rate (and earning thousands of bonus points). This makes it even less likely that you would want to buy points today for an immediate redemption.

However, as Tom pointed out earlier today, there are examples like the Maldives where buying points now could easily save you £1,000s.

If You Do Buy, Don’t Forget Cashback

Regular readers will know that I regularly promote TopCashback USA because, among other reasons, you can earn some cashback on your points/miles purchases when they are processed by Points.com.
