Hilton HHonors has launched new targeted offers for buying points at 60%, 80% and maybe even at 100% bonus between March 18 – April 1, 2016.
You can buy up to 80,000 Hilton HHonors points every calendar year before any bonuses (Hilton usually advertises a bonus and not a discount).
You can check your targeted offer here.
Price at the 80% bonus:
The price of a Hilton HHonors point purchased at the 80% bonus is 0.56 cents each.
Does it make sense to purchase Hilton HHonors points?
If you use them for very expensive or cheap properties point wise, you can have a deal. Also, some Points + Cash redemptions can be a reasonable offer when the cash rates are through the roof.
Hilton HHonors sold points at 100% bonus and 50% off last year. If you can wait a bit longer, I am sure that one of these public offers will resurface at some point this year.
Here are the terms and conditions:
