Hilton Honors Points Purchase Promotions

Currently, there are no points promotions running. 

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.  

You could:

  • 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.

Our analysis of Hilton Honors points promotions is below.

Analysis of Hilton Honors points promotions

The Hilton Honors program has regular promotions for points purchases. We look at the history of their promo's to see:

Points Promotions

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 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 5 per thousand (approx GBP 3.93 or AUD 7.85).  So a discount of 50% 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.
