[Expired] Buy 10,000+ Hilton Honors Points, Get a 100% Bonus (0.5¢ Per Point)

Deal has expired, view more Hilton deals by clicking here.

The Offer

No direct link; log in to your Hilton Honors account and head to the buy points screen.

  • Buy 10,000+ Hilton Honors points get an 100% bonus.

The Fine Print

  • A maximum of 80,000 Hilton Honors points can be purchased per year, so the maximum bonus is +80,000 Hilton Honors points (160,000 total points, $800).
  • Some Hilton Honors members may be able to purchase 160,000 points per year, doubling those numbers.
  • Valid until February 26th, 2019

Our Verdict

Don’t forget you can go through a portal as the points are actually sold through Points.com, for example Topcashback is offering 2.5% cash back on these purchases. You’ll also earn credit card rewards points as normal so your cost basis is under 0.5¢. Personally I don’t like purchasing points/miles as I find them a lot more inflexible than cash, I also value Hilton points at less than 0.5¢ so this isn’t a good deal for me. We talk about point valuations and issues with people overvaluing points in this post. I guess if you don’t have any Hilton points and have a specific redemption in mind then purchasing points isn’t a terrible idea, but I certainly wouldn’t advocate for purchasing points speculatively.

Does buying Hilton points with a Hilton card code as a Hilton purchase?

So this earns 3x Hilton Points per $ then? So if you spend $800, you’d get 160k + 2,400 + Cash Back from Cash Back websites?

No. Because its not a Hilton purchase, its a 3rd party (points.com) purchase.

Potential money making opportunity (Due to additional CC rewards points), if Hilton comes through with the Amazon 0.5c redemption again 🙂

Good thinking but not worth the risk if they never run the Amazon HH 0.5 promotion again.

You could get 10% off for amazon gift card from staples or lowes. Why take the risk and get only 2.5%(tcb) + 3%(blue biz plus) off?

BBP is only 2% off

I think you are better off buying amazon GCs with the amex offers, for example (lowes, staples, etc), or many of the other promotions (kroger 4X, etc, etc ,etc)

I wonder if all of us (including me) that didn’t wanna cash out HH for 0.5 Amazon because they valued HH points above 0.5 if they buy now HH points at 0.5?
(To me HH is tricky therefore I’m not buying at 0.5 or selling at 0.5).

Does this help toward getting diamond status?

I purchased 20k points and although the CSR can see it in my account on their side, my account has not been updated. They are not ready to manually credit my account as well.Anyone else face the same problem?
