This is a quick reminder that today (June 17th) is the last day to purchase Hilton Honors points with a 100% bonus. While this is the best bonus we’ve probably ever seen with Hilton, it is the same exact offer that we saw a few months ago with the Daily Getaways offers. This offer did not sell out quickly (or possibly at all), so while it can be a good offer for some, it is by no means a jump now and purchase offer.
Hilton allows you to purchase up to 80,000 points per account per calendar year, which means you can ultimately get up to 160,000 points with this promotion. With the bonus, you are purchasing points at .5 cents per point.
As previously mentioned, 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 the best available rate with the hotel. You can use this standard room pricing tool to see how many points a particular hotel will cost.
Also remember, if you have Hilton status (those with Silver, Gold, or Diamond status), you get the 5th night free on an award redemptions. You can learn more about earning 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 looking to collect more. But for those that have a specific need, enjoy this promotion!
