Hilton Honors’ most lucrative point promotion is back again. Between now and May 3, 2017 you can buy Hilton Honors points at 100% bonus. Unlike Hilton’s previous promotions the bonus percentage is not tiered and as long as you buy 5,000 points you’ll get the 100% bonus.
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 high end Hilton properties, like The Conrad Maldives, Rangali Island. Rooms here are priced at USD 1000 per nights versus a reward redemption of 95,000 points per night. If you club this with a 5th night free benefit, you have the potential to get a huge value on redemption.
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. Also, if you are buying points to top up your account remember that beginning April this year you will have the option to pool your Hilton Honors points with 10 other members.
