Earlier today I wrote about how it was possible to purchase Hilton Honors points for just 0.48 cents each through Daily Getaways. There were a total of 961 packages available. At most, each member could purchase five packages, for a total of 440,000 points at a cost of $2,112.
I didn’t think these packages would sell out so quickly, but I was wrong — they did. None of the Hilton Honors packages through Daily Getaways are available anymore. If you missed out on this deal but still want to buy Hilton Honors points, there’s some good news.
For several weeks now, Hilton Honors has been offering a 100% bonus on purchased points, which is an opportunity to purchase Honors points for 0.5 cents each. That’s 0.02 cents per point more than through Daily Getaways, so it’s virtually the same price (if buying 100,000 points, we’re talking about a price difference of $20).
The bonus is available if you purchase at least 5,000 points in one transaction, and you can purchase up to 80,000 points in one transaction, before factoring in the 100% bonus.
This 100% bonus ends at 11:59PM ET tomorrow, Wednesday, May 3, 2017, so this is your last chance to take advantage of it. So if you intended to buy Hilton points but couldn’t take advantage of the Daily Getaways offer before it expired, or if you just want to top off your account so you have enough points for a specific redemption, this is a great opportunity.
Personally I wouldn’t speculatively buy points at this price, though there are lots of instances where you’ll come out ahead by taking advantage of this deal, especially for redemptions at high end properties.
