Buy 5,000+ Hilton Honors Points, Get a 100% Bonus (0.5¢ Per Point)

0


Update 1/18/21: Deal is back and valid through 3/5/21.

The Offer

No direct link; log in to your Hilton Honors account and head to the buy points screen.

  • Buy 10,000+ Hilton Honors points get an 100% bonus.

 

The Fine Print

  • A maximum of 80,000 Hilton Honors points can be purchased per year, so the maximum bonus is +80,000 Hilton Honors points (160,000 total points, $800).
  • Some Hilton Honors members may be able to purchase 160,000 points per year, doubling those numbers.
  • Valid until July 15, 2020

Our Verdict

Don’t forget you can go through a portal as the points are actually sold through Points.com, for example Topcashback is offering 2.5% cash back on these purchases. You’ll also earn credit card rewards points as normal so your cost basis is under 0.5¢. Personally I don’t like purchasing points/miles as I find them a lot more inflexible than cash, I also value Hilton points at less than 0.5¢ so this isn’t a good deal for me. We talk about point valuations and issues with people overvaluing points in this post. I guess if you don’t have any Hilton points and have a specific redemption in mind then purchasing points isn’t a terrible idea, but I certainly wouldn’t advocate for purchasing points speculatively.

Deal history:

  • Update 10/8/20: Some people are also being targeted for 5,000 bonus points regardless of how many you buy. 1,000 + 1,000 bonus points + 5,000 bonus points (7,000 total) for $10 is the cheapest deal.
