Hilton has launched a new Flash Sale to buy Honors points with a 100% bonus, but only until July 29, 2021, or when the allotment is sold out.
Members can usually buy up to 80,000 points every calendar year before the bonus, although the limit is often doubled for select members (check the purchase page).
You can access Hilton’s web page for buying points here.
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.
Note that the points are sold through partner points.com, and the purchase doesn’t qualify as Hilton one for those paying with affiliated credit cards.
Here’s the price at 100% bonus:
Hilton award charts:
Hilton has several hotels requiring just 5,000 or 10,000 points per night!
Here are examples when buying points make good sense:
Mango House Seychelles, LXR Hotels & Resorts
380,000 points would cost you $1,900 under his sale compares to paying more than 4,200 euros.
Conrad Bora Bora Nui
Conrad Bora Bora Nui is one of the hotels at which using points over cash makes a lot of sense. For example, a five-night stay would cost you more than $5,000 compared to $1,780 if you buy the points.
The award availability tends to be good, and reward reservations are usually flexible in last-minute cancellations or modifications (always check the cancellation deadline!).
You have to keep in mind that Honors awards include all fees and taxes that sometimes can be an additional 30% on top of the initial rate displayed, and all elite members get the fifth night free when redeeming points.
The best use of Hilton Honors points is when and where the paid rates are through the roof, such as the Maldives or French Polynesia properties.
