20% discount when you buy Hilton HHonors points

For the first time that I can remember, Hilton is offering a special offer on purchases of Hilton HHonors points.

Until September 3rd, you will receive a 20% discount when you buy Hilton HHonors points via this link.

Hilton Venice

With a few exceptions, it will not make sense to buy 100% of the points needed for a Hilton redemption such as the Hilton Venice above.  I tend to value them at 0.3p, although a ‘cash and points’ redemption can get you up to 0.5p.  Under this promotion you are paying 0.8 cents, so just a touch under 0.5p.

If you need to top off your account to reach the right level for a redemption then this is not a bad deal.

Before you buy, remember that you can also transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Hilton (at 1:2) as well as Virgin Flying Club miles (1:1.5, details on this page).

  1. As you have often mentioned in the past raffles, the amount of points you need to get reward nights with Hilton does not make it worthwhile.

      Not always. Five nights at a Category 1 for $160 isn’t too bad at all. Your booking will be flexible too (although in this case you obviously wouldn’t get your cash back, just the points).

  2. Just to check, presumably buying some HHpoints gets you past HHonors nasty 1 year expiry rule?

    Hi, a bit off topic but can you collect Hilton points on hotel bookings through third party websites? Thanks

    • No (unless the hotel mistakenly awards them) – under the HHonors T&Cs you get elite benefits on 3rd part stays but you don’t earn stay/points credit for the room.

    Okay thank you
