Hilton in March launched a points sale with a 100% bonus and an increased limit that is about to end. The offer is valid for purchases made through May 9, 2023.
Members can usually buy up to 80,000 points per calendar year, but the limit is now tripled to 240,000 points before the 100% bonus for a total of 480,000 points.
You can access Hilton’s web page for buying points here.
Price Of 480,000 Points With 100% bonus:
The cost of a point is the usual 0.5 US cents each.
Remember to use Award Calendar:
How to use Hilton’s flexible dates award calendar to pull up availability for the entire year?
Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos PedegralExample:
The paid rates at this Waldorf Astoria hotel in Mexico are rather expensive when you factor in the taxes and service fees.
But five nights at this hotel cost exactly 480,000 points ($2,400) when you factor in the fifth night free for elite members,
I like sales that allow you to buy a significant enough number of points you can redeem for five nights at most of the Hilton’s sought-after and expensive resorts.
Honors awards include all fees and taxes, including resorts and destination charges, often an additional 20-30% on top of the initial rate displayed. 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. I am currently holding on to six 5-night reservations for Maldives and French Polynesia that have tied up all my 3M HH points. I will likely buy some more during this sale.
