(9/12 – Reposting as the last day to buy Hilton points with a 100% bonus is Tuesday September 19th)
As I continue to enjoy racking up Hilton Honors Points through my portfolio of cards, this is another great way to boost your points bank! Hilton is doing a 100% bonus on the points you buy until September 19th. You can normally buy up to 80,000 points per year, but for this promotion Hilton is also upping the maximum to 160,000 points through this promotion, meaning you’d come away with as many as 320,000 Hilton points
Hilton Honors Points 100% Bonus
I currently value Hilton Honors Points at 6/10 of a cent per point (.006). You are able to purchase up to 160,000 points, which will earn you an extra 160,000 on top, for $1600 USD. This leaves you a value of 1/2 a cent per point (.005), which is a bit under my value. It is up to you to decide how much they are worth. But the real value is how you use them!
My family recently stayed 5 nights at the Homewood Suites Orlando International Drive for only 140,000 Hilton points, and got a free upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite. Those rooms were going for nearly $250 / night, which means that we got nearly 1 cent per point value!
While I’m generally against buying points speculatively, if you need some points for your next redemption, it could be worth topping up your account or if you have a specific redemption in mind
However, I recommend applying for a Hilton Honors American Express Card to complement your points purchase (see below). With this, you will be well on your way to a beautiful award stay!
Getting more Hilton points
Generally I am more of a fan of using credit card welcome offers to get points instead of buying points. Right now several of the Hilton American Express cards have increased welcome offers and you can find those on our top credit card offers page
