On sale today at 1pm EST with Daily Getaway are different packages of Hilton points, at 0.48 cents per point. These packages are slightly cheaper than the 0.5 cent per point if you purchase points directly from Hilton with 100% bonus through May 3.
3 Hilton points packages
- 100,000 points for $480 (275 packages available, maximum 1)
- 30,000 points for $144 (450 packages available, maximum 3)
- 250,000 points for $1,200 (236 packages available, maximum 1)
You can only purchase no more than five sets of points in this promotion. It may take 3 to 4 weeks for the points to be posted. The Hilton points purchased through Daily Getaway do not count towards the annual purchase limit, which is 160,000 points.
Should you buy Hilton points?
Using points purchased through Daily Getaway, you will be paying just $24 a night at the cheapest Hilton hotels that cost 5,000 points per night. While the most luxurious Hilton resort (like the Conrad Maldive) will set you back 95,000 points per night, your cost is capped at $456 if using points purchased today.
As I wrote in the five best use of Hilton points, there are value to be found in the Hilton program. But you really need to crutch numbers to see if it is worth buying points for an award stay instead of paying cash. Sometimes it is better to just pay cash. The same is true for any other hotel rewards programs, including the much-loved Hyatt, Starwood, Marriott and IHG,
If you just need to top off your current balance to reach the next award level, the 30,000-point package might be worthwhile. You can also just purchase the amount you need directly from Hilton, as the cost is only slightly higher with the 100% bonus through May 3.
Alternatively, you can easily get 80,000 to 100,000 points by signing up one of the two Amex Hilton cards, as both are currently offering the highest ever sign-up bonus.
