There is a promotion going on where you can get 50% off your Hilton points purchase now through June 23, 2017. In order to score the 50% off rate, you need to purchase a minimum of 5,000 points. As always, I don’t recommend speculatively purchasing points but, this could be of interest to someone who is trying to book a higher end Hilton where the cost of the points is much less then paying for the room rate.
50% Off Hilton Points
You can review the terms of this offer here after you log in.
- Points purchased do not count towards elite tier qualification.
- The 50% Points discount campaign is available for purchases made between May 25, 2017, at 12:01am ET and June 23, 2017, at 11:59pm ET.
- Members must purchase a minimum of 5,000 points in order to qualify for the 50% discount.
- Members may purchase a maximum of 80,000 points per calendar year.
With the 50% Discount
With this sale you would be paying .5 cents per point versus 1 cent per point with the discount. Not terrible.
Hilton Honors is offering a great new benefit called points pooling that we told you about back in April. Basically, pooling allows members to combine points across accounts for free. You can share up to 500,000 points per year and a Member can receive up to 2 million Points in a calendar year. You can see the link to pool points here after you sign in.
If you are looking for more ways to earn more Hilton points, consider the Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express and the Hilton Honors American Express Card.
If you have a specific redemption in mind, or if you need to top off your account check out this promotion where you can purchase Hilton points at 50% off. Always compare the cost of the room that you are wanting to book when there are sales like this to see if you can save money by purchasing points to make an award redemption versus paying the room rate.
