Earlier in April, Hilton announced a 100% bonus promotion on purchase of HHonors points until June 3, 2016. If you have been on the fence about buying HHonors points under this promotion, here’s some good news for you. Hilton HHonors has extended this purchase promotion by a week and now you can buy points until June 10, 2016.
The cost to purchase a Hilton point is usually 1 cent and through this promotion the cost of purchase drops down to 0.5 cent each. You can purchase a maximum of 80,000 HHonors points, that means the highest number of points you can earn through purchase are 160,000 at a cost of 800 USD.
100% bonus points is by far the best purchase promotion that Hilton offers and there is definitely value to be had at some Hilton properties, like The Conrad Maldives, Rangali Island. Additionally, if you have a Hilton elite status and stay for five nights on points, the fifth night becomes free which further brings down the redemption cost and that can be a real sweet deal.
Although my analysis clearly showed that there is value in point redemption at both ends of the spectrum, I would suggest you keep in mind which Hilton hotels you would like make use of the redemption as at some hotels booking a room at cash price and earning Hhonors points might turn out to be a better option than redeeming points for a reward night. If you have existing HHonors points in your account and would like to top up points, again this would be the best time to do so.
