Hilton Honors sells points at a discount so consistently that “regular price” rarely seems to apply. The last promotion ended on 6 May, 2022 and the next promotion starts today, 30 May, 2022. (a 3-week gap that is slightly longer than normal!)
The latest iteration of Hilton’s “points sale” will run until 19 July, 2022.
What’s The Deal?
Hilton’s regular price is 1 US cent per point (which you should NEVER consider).
With a 100% bonus, that price would halve to 0.5 cents per point, which is currently about 0.395p per point.
You can buy 80,000 points per year, with a 100% bonus bringing your total to 160,000 points. HOWEVER, many people are seeing that their annual limit is now 160,000 points, so 320,000 when doubled due to this promotion.
Should I Buy?
The tricky part about analysing whether to buy Hilton points is that it is so easy to earn them from paid hotel stays, especially when a double or triple point promotion is running, such as the current promo.
You should also keep in mind that Hilton Honors has recently increased the upper limit of points pricing at several high-end hotels – click here for details.
But If You Do Buy, Don’t Forget Cashback
Regular readers will know that I frequently promote TopCashback USA because, among other reasons, you can earn some cashback on your points/miles purchases when they are processed by Points.com.

If you are not yet a member of TopCashback USA, you can earn an additional $15. Simply sign up using this referral link – http://www.topcashback.com/join-us/inside-flyer/ref/craigsowerby – and earn $10 of cashback.
It’s really quite simple to earn $10 of cashback. Buying $400 worth of Hilton points would get you there. Alternatively, the number of hotel chains available via TopCashback is impressive – Hilton, IHG, Marriott, Accor, Choice, Best Western, etc. – as well as the major Online Travel Agencies. So a single hotel stay will probably get you there…
Note that this is the USA version of TopCashback, but it’s easy to sign up and then cash out any money via Paypal.
