Pay at Ticketmaster with your Hilton Honors hotel points

Hilton Honors has rolled out its ‘Tickets with Points’ feature in the UK.

This allows you to use your Hilton Honors points to purchase tickets to sporting events, concerts, comedy shows and theatre productions from Ticketmaster.

You don’t need to have enough Hilton points to pay for your entire ticket. You can use as few as 5 Hilton Honors points which makes this a good way of using up a small Hilton balance if you have one.

The big question, of course, is what value do you get? The answer is ‘not great’. 500 Hilton Honors points gets you $1 equivalent off your purchase so 0.2 cents per point.

This compares very badly with our valuation of Hilton Honors points of 0.33p (0.4c) per point. You should also be able to beat our valuation if you’re smart or selective about when you redeem.
