Hilton Honors launched in late-July a sale that allows members to buy points with a 100% bonus that ends this Sunday (September 20, 2020).
Members can usually buy up to 80,000 points every calendar year before any bonus, although the limit is now doubled for most if not all members (check the purchase page).
You can access Hilton’s web page for buying points here.
Note that you need to buy a minimum of 10,000 points to get a 100% bonus. The account that receives the points must have been open for a minimum of 90 days (without any other activity) or 30 days if there is a stay or other credit.
Here’s the price at 100% bonus:
The cost of a purchased point under this offer is 0.5 cents each.
Hilton award charts:
You can redeem at just 5,000 or 10,000 points per night at more than 100 Hilton Honors affiliated hotels.
We have compiled a list of all Hilton Honors participating hotels with maximum point values for standard rooms.
New Hilton Honors affiliated hotels with their point requirements.
Hilton Honors members can earn both double points and nights through the end of 2020.
The award availability is plenty right now, as many cannot or are unable to (understandably) commit to reservations in late 2020 or early 2021.
The best use of Hilton Honors points is when the paid rates are through the roof, such as the Waldorf Astoria Maldives (effectively $600 per night) or at some 5,000/10,000 points or lower cat properties that have high paid rates.
