Hilton HHonors jumped to the “mystery bonus” bandwagon and started offering 30% to 50% account specific discounts for buying points until September 16, 2016.
Hilton HHonors members are eligible to purchase up to 80,000 points every calendar year, although some accounts may have the limit lifted.
You can access the offer on Hilton’s website here.
The standard price of purchasing 80,000 Hilton HHonors points is $800. Those that have their discount set at 50% can purchase them for $400. The price of a point at this level is half a cent.
The maximum bonus of buying Hilton HHonors points is 100% and the discount 50%. The price of a purchased point under both offers is exactly the same 0.5 cents each (half of a cent).
I purchased the maximum number of points during the recent 100% bonus sale and plan on using them later in the year or early 2017. Worth considering to purchase if your discount is at 50% (otherwise wait for 100% bonus or 50% off).
