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 May 28th. You can get up to 80,000 points through this promotion
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 80,000 points, which will earn you an extra 80,000 on top, for $800 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 just 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.
