Amex Daily Getaways: Purchase Hilton Points at a Discount

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

Tomorrow’s Daily Getaway promotion (Week 1, Day 5) is offering the opportunity to purchase Hilton HHonors points at a discount. There aren’t a ton available, but I am not confident this is actually a great deal.

With this offer you can get:

  • 100,000 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points for $550 (160 available)
  • 150,000 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points for $825 (200 available)
  • 250,000 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points for $1,375 (200 available)

With these three packages you are purchasing points at .55 cents per point. However, if you pay with an American Express credit card that will bring the cost down to .5 cents per point. This is the same price that this offer cost in 2012, however, Hilton has had massive devaluation since then.

This offer is good for some, but I definitely do not suggest purchasing points speculatively. I suggest checking out to see if the cost of purchasing points for a redemption is cheaper then paying cash at the hotel. You can use this standard room pricing tool to see how many people a particular hotel will cost.

Also remember, if you have Hilton status (those with Silver, Gold, or Diamond status) get the 5th night free on an award redemptions. You can learn more about learning status from this prior blog post – all four Hilton credit cards also give you status as long as you are a cardmember!

I will personally be sitting this one out. I do not have a specific need for Hilton points and I am really not earning to collect more. But for those that have a specific need, goodluck!

This deal will go on sale at 1pm EST TOMORROW Friday May 23rd. I do believe this deal will go that fast due to the limited amount available so if you want to grab this offer I suggest getting on your computer prior to the offer being available and having all your information available (Amex credit card number and Hilton loyalty number). Also remember, like all other Daily Getaway promotions, you’ll receive 10% off the purchase price if you use any American Express credit card!

  1. I don’t have a Hilton Card, so generating points is tough, put the $1300 for the 250K is a bargain since it will cover 3/4 of our stay in Europe this fall….

  2. My wife and kids want to go back to Hilton Waikoloa on the big island of Hawaii. Of course they want to stay in the Dolphin suite for 4 to 5 nights, which is $2000 or 125k points per night.

    With my Hilton Surpass AmEx, I could generate only about 250k HH Points (and will be HH Diamond) by next July, so I will be buying the 250k package for $1250. Beats paying $2k a night.

  3. Yes, I scored the 250K hilton points. Last year when I purchased IHG points it took 3 days for the points to post to my account.
