Currently, there is a points promotions running. If you purchase Hilton Honors (advertiser) through 19 July 2022, you receive 100% bonus points. T&C's apply, including minimum purchase of 5,000 points.
Generally purchasing points is a simple way of extending the life of your existing points balance. Doing so during one of the regular
promotions can provide a cost-effective way of "refreshing" your points, or gaining you award nights.
- use the opportunity to buy a modest number of points and "refresh" the life of your current balance.
- buy more points and cut the cost of a nice stay, especially for Elite Tier members who combine this offer with their 5th night free benefit.

Analysis of Hilton Honors points promotions
In our complete Hilton Honors guide, we noted that:
- there are a number of stand-out features that make Hilton Honors an attractive program for a wide range of travellers.
- there are promotions that provide opportunities to buy discounted points for an intended stay that can really slash the cost of your stay. Especially if used in combination with the Points & Money feature of the program.
The Hilton Honors program has regular promotions for points purchases. We look at the history of their promo's to see:
- Are current promotions good value?
- Are the offers seasonal?
- When do the best offers usually occur?
Recommendation - Buy Hilton Honors points during promotions offering when there is a discount of 50%/bonus of 100%.
Hilton Honors offers for its points for sale through the points management service of points.com. The usual rate is USD 10 per thousand points, with a member limited to purchasing no more than 80,000 points in a calendar year.
Our "fair value" valuation for Hilton Honors points (the level at which you can redeem them for good value accommodation) is approx USD 6 per thousand (approx GBP 4.50 or AUD 8.00). So a discount of 40% or more makes purchasing additional points interesting.
Hilton Honors offers have been consistently set at a 100% bonus / 50% discount for a couple of years now (so not seasonal), with promotions every second month (although 2020 was an exception in more ways than one). So purchases during these promotions should provide ample opportunities to obtain good value, if you have a specific purpose in mind. During promotions, the maximum number of points able to be purchased is often increased too, making getting to your goal even easier.
Note that we do not recommend buying points speculatively, or hoarding them.
