American Express issues three personal co-branded Hilton Honors credit cards and two of those three credit cards are about to see a change put through in the next few weeks. One change is purely cosmetic while the other represents a small devaluation to the credit card's offering.
Hilton has been running its current points sale since early April but today is the last day to make the most of the bonus offer that sees points being sold at just 0.5 cents each.Historically, 0.5 cents is the lowest cost we see Hilton Honors points sold for so if you need to top up an account this may be a good time.
Radisson's latest points promotion is now live and, as points promotions go, this one shows potential.

Marriott recently ran its first ever points sale but, while this was a big change from the Marriott Rewards of old (and probably something it has taken on from Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program which it merged into Marriott Rewards to create Marriott Bonvoy), there was one big issue with the sale - it only allowed Marriott Bonvoy members to buy up to 50,000 points.

While IHG will officially sell you its Rewards Club Points at a cost starting at of 1.0 cent per point (most of the time) and while it often sells points at a cost as low as 0.5 cents each in its frequent points sales, there's also occasionally a way of "buying" points for even less....and right now there's an opportunity to do just that.
