Hilton has been selling Honors points at its cheapest rate since the beginning of November and it’s currently allowing Honors members to buy twice as many points as in the past but there’s less than 48 hours left to make the moat of this promotion before it goes away.

The Math

The math is very simple in this promotion – buy at least 10,000 points and you’ll get a 100% bonus.

Whether you buy 10,000 points…..

a black and white table with white text

…or whether you buy the full allowance of 160,000 points….

a black and white screen with numbers and points

….you’ll always be buying points at a cost of $0.005/point.

Is This Offer Worth It?

If you’re a few points short of what you need to book an award then this is probably about as good as it will get for you – you shouldn’t go too far wrong topping off an account in this promotion.

If you’re looking to buy a lot of points the plan you have for those points will determine how good or bad of a deal this is.

The first thing to note is that it’s nice to be able to buy up to 320,000 point in this promotion rather than the standard 160,000.

The majority of Hilton’s top properties cost at least 80,000 points/night so you can buy enough points in this promotion to book one of those properties for up to 4 nights with whatever points you buy AND, if you have Hilton Honors status, you’ll get a fifth night thrown in for free.

There will be occasions where this will get you a very good value redemption indeed.

Here’s an example of what I mean:

A 5-night stay at the Conrad London St James can set you back £355/$462 per night including taxes during the less rainy months of the year…..

….and that comes to a total of £1,779 or $2,313 for the stay.

This is for an advance purchase booking which is not cancellable more than 24 hours after it has been made – once you book you can’t change your mind.

The same property can be booked for 80,000/night (for the exact same dates) and, as the 5th night of a 5 night award stay is free if you have Hilton status, that will come to a total of 320,000 points.

320,000 Hilton points in the current promotion would cost $1,600 and, not only would this save over $700 (in this example), it would also get you a fully flexible reservation which can be cancelled up to 48 hours before arrival.

That’s a fantastic deal!

I should temper any excitement at this point with a warning which should be obvious but may not be – just because the example I gave above means this can be a fantastic time to buy some points it doesn’t mean that buying points will give you a great deal in all other instances. Be careful.

Bottom Line

This is one of the best opportunities to buy Hilton points that we’ve seen in a while and it’s the increased limit that’s making the difference.

Also, and this is definitely worth bearing mind, the annual purchasing limits will be resetting in the new year so, if you buy your full allowance in this sale, you’ll only be frozen out for the next 14 days – if you wait until the first sale of the new year to buy your full allowance (a sale which unlikely to be cheaper) you’ll be frozen out for the remainder of 2019.


If you’re considering buying points in this promotion don’t just dive in – do your homework.

The most important things to do are to…

  1. Work out what you’d like to do with your points, where you’d like to visit and when
  2. Perform similar calculations to the ones I’ve shown above.

If the math works then buying points in this promotion could definitely save you some money but, if the math doesn’t work, you should move on.
