Hilton has launched a new offer to buy Honors points with a 100% bonus combined with an increased limit through the end of 2020.
Members can usually buy up to 80,000 points every calendar year before any bonus, although the limit is now doubled for most if not all members (check the purchase page).
You can access Hilton’s web page for buying points here.
Note that you need to buy a minimum of 10,000 points to get a 100% bonus. The account that receives the points must have been open for a minimum of 90 days (without any other activity) or 30 days if there is a stay or other credit.
Here’s the price at 100% bonus:
The cost of a purchased point under this offer is 0.5 cents each.
Hilton award charts:
You can redeem at just 5,000 or 10,000 points per night at more than 100 Hilton Honors affiliated hotels.
Honors members earn bonus points through the end of 2020:
Hilton Honors members can earn both double points and nights through the end of 2020.
The award availability is excellent at the moment, and reward reservations are usually flexible in case of last-minute cancellations or modifications (always check the cancellation deadline!).
The best use of Hilton Honors points is when the paid rates are through the roof, such as the Waldorf Astoria Maldives (effectively $600 per night) or at 5,000/10,000 points and lower cat properties that have high paid rates.
