You know those people that say you should never buy points, even when they’re on sale? Those are the kind of people that aren’t good at math.

Hilton is once again offering a limited-time 100% bonus when you buy at least 10,000 Hilton points — in other words, you can purchase Hilton points at half price. If you’ve been dreaming of a five-star vacation, or if you’ve already got hotel nights lined up, this could be away to sharply reduce your cost.

Read our Hilton Honors review for more details on this super useful program.

Hilton buy points promotion

You’ve got until November 26, 2019, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time, to receive a 100% bonus on Hilton points purchases of 10,000+ points. Normally, Hilton sells points for 1 cent each, so with this deal you can scoop them up for just 0.5 cents each.

You can buy up to 160,000 points with this promotion and receive a bonus 160,000 points. If you maxed out this deal, you’d receive 320,000 points for $1,600. Hilton points value depends on which hotel you book, but but this can be an unbelievable way to “pre-pay” for your upcoming travel at a discount. For example, the Waldorf Astoria Park City in Utah costs an average of $1,383 per night this coming January — but it’s available for 89,000 points.

This is one of the premier ski destinations in the country, and it’s unbelievably costly during the high season. But with this promotion, you can purchase the 89,000 points you need for a free night for just $450, and save $900+ on the room rate.

And remember, any Hilton members with elite status (which you automatically receive if you have a Hilton credit card) will get the fifth award night free. You’d need to purchase 356,000 points for a five night stay at this hotel, but Hilton lets you pool points with anyone. You an a friend could both purchase points and combine them. If you purchased a total of 356,000 points, you’d spend $1,780. But you’d receive a stay worth $8,000+! That’s like getting a 77% discount.

There are gobs of other hotels in which you can save big by purchasing Hilton points. I personally use my Hilton points for low-category hotels, because I tend to save the most. You can read my post on the subject for more details.

This points sale can be a fantastic value. But don’t spend money unless you need to. You can earn tons of Hilton points by opening credit cards and meeting the minimum spending requirements:

Will this purchase extend the expiration on the miles I already have?

Heads up, the hotel in Bora Bora is no longer a Hilton. It’s been updated to a Conrad. Excited to see how it compares to the photos from your visit in 2012.

@WES… Your statement appears to be true. However, toping off one’s account by spending a few dollars (less dollars than if there was no 80k Bonus) may very well allow for someone to reach a level of points that allow for them to make magical things happen. Somethings would be:

1. Booking a hotel that otherwise they did not have enough point for; such as is the case if they needed 80k points to book a hotel and only had 70k

and or more importantly

2. Someone that has enough points for 3 nights, who is a Platinum Member, who can now purchase enough points for the 4th night and end up with 5 nights for the cost of their points and ‘purchased’ points to acquire the 4th night.

Now while I’d like to wait it out until the ‘valuation’ of this sale is, as you put it, ‘below that (.05) value”, one does not often have the ability to sit around until a company affords such a promotion. Instead they may simply spend 10 dollars to get 1000 more points… and end up with two more nights to their stay…

Guess it all depends where you are

Ripoff, HHonors points are worth 0.5 cents a piece. Talk to me when they are below that value.

Does the temporary return AXON awards make this a possible no brainer? Thinking of getting Hilton Surpass with 100K bonus and then maxing out on this buy miles promo. Good idea?
