Hilton HHonors targeted mystery offer for buying or gifting points at 20%, 30%, 40% or 50% bonus is ending today (December 22).

The price of Hilton HHonors point at:
20% offer is 0.8 cents each
30% offer is 0.77 cents each
40% offer is 0.71 cents each
50% offer is 0.67 cents each
Buying Hilton HHonors points at these price generally makes no sense at all. I would say that a fair value of a Hilton HHonors point is roughly one third of a cent.
You could argue that in special instances such as finding a category 1 hotel where you actually would want to stay could be considered a deal at this price. Those are very rare though.
