Hilton Honors has today launched a new targeted buy points campaign with unclear expiry date.
Members can buy up to 80,000 points every calendar year, although this limit is sometimes doubled and it is before any possible bonuses. The email that was forwarded to me offered 60% bonus, although some members may have higher bonus or no bonus at all (like my personal account).
You can access Hilton’s web page for buying points here.
The best use of Hilton Honors points is when the paid rates are through the roof or some of those 5,000/10,000 points properties (read more here or here) or lower cat properties that have high paid rates.
Hilton Honors sells points several times a year at 100% bonus or at 50% off. The price of a point purchased during these sales is 0.5 cents each. I prefer these bonus sales because they allow you to buy more points than the off ones.
If your account is not eligible for 100% bonus, I would wait until one of the better offers surface in due course.
