Hilton Honors launched buy points in early November promotion and is offering up to 100% bonus (seems to be 80% or 100% depending on your account) and has doubled the purchase limit at least for select members.
Members can buy up to 80,000 points every calendar year before any bonus, although the limit often doubled to select members (this time for me – allowing to purchase 320K points with the bonus).
You can access Hilton’s web page for buying points here.
Doubled Purchase Limit:
Here’s the price at 100% bonus:
The price of a purchased point under this offer is 0.5 cents each.
The best use of Hilton Honors points is when the paid rates are through the roof or at some of those 5,000/10,000 points 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 always 0.5 cents each. I prefer the bonus sales because they allow you to buy greater number if points and this one allows members to purchase more if they have already hit their yearly limit.
