Until 18th December, Hilton Honors (the new-ish Hilton Tallinn Park, reviewed here, is pictured below) is offering an 80% or 100% bonus when you purchase 10,000+ points.
I have been offered a 100% bonus but I know some people are only seeing 80%.
Regular readers of Head for Points will know that I tend to value Hilton points at 0.33p each. You are paying 0.38p ($1,600 / £1,222 for 320,000) here if you buy the maximum so the maths in general doesn’t work.
HOWEVER ….. there ARE real bargains to be had at peak periods. At the top end, the Conrad Maldives is usually 95,000 points per night. Via this offer you would be paying under $500 per night which is a great deal. We did a big review of Conrad Maldives here. Remember that you can pool points between Hilton members for free so it is now easier for different people to buy points and merge them together.
Hilton also does ‘five for four’ if you have Hilton Honors status. As Hilton will status match you from any other hotel scheme where you may have status, most HFP readers should qualify for this. Taking 10th – 15th February as an example, five nights would cost you (95,000 x 4) 380,000 points which would cost $1,900 with this deal. A non-refundable cash rate would cost $4,558.
Similar deals are available at peak times in other major cities. Conrad New York, for example, costs $3,693 for a five-night stay from 1st to 6th December. Buying 320,000 points via this deal would cost just $1,600. Conrad New York is an ‘all suite’ hotel which I recommend.
If you are just buying a handful of points to top off your account, the price per point doesn’t matter anyway. If you a few thousand short of a redemption then this is a decent opportunity to buy them.
You can buy points via this link. The offer ends on 18th December.
