The deadline to Hilton’s Q1 promotion, Hilton 100% bonus on purchase of 5,000 points or more, was extended until March 8, 2021, at 11:59pm ET. Last call, on a good opportunity to top up accounts towards a redemption or buy points outright for a planned stay. Purchasing Hilton points at 0.5 cents a piece offer great value when redeeming at the highest tier properties – think over water bungalows!
HILTON 100% BONUS ON POINTS PURCHASE
With this promotion you can purchase as little as 5,000 points for $100 or as much as 160K points for $800! Note that you can purchase up to 80,000 Hilton Honors Points in a calendar year, not including the bonus. Since you can combine points across household accounts, you can choose to purchase 80K on each account. I value Hilton points at ~0.6 CPM and this promotion yields 0.5 CPM, a great value! Purchase of 80K points would yield a total of 160K points for $800.
Given that highest category Hilton redemptions can range between 80K-95K per night, it is nice to see that the promotion allows a redemption with outright purchase of points. Very handy for anyone dreaming up a Maldives vacation – Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, which books directly into the Water Villa on points – 95,000/nt, can be had for $475 using this points promotion. Compare that to the avg cash price of ~$950/nt, and that’s a solid ~50% discount.
There is also incredible value to be had when redeeming low-mid tier category hotels in the Hilton portfolio. Remember, the ‘5th night free’ benefit which can add another layer of savings.
Hilton 100% bonus on purchased points @0.5 cpm is as good a sale but please do not buy without a use or plan in mind.
