Hilton Honors is currently offering a 100% bonus on purchased points. This means that if you purchase 5,000 points, you will receive an additional 5,000 points for free. This is a great opportunity to boost your Hilton Honors balance and earn free nights at Hilton hotels.
To take advantage of this offer, you must purchase a minimum of 5,000 points, and you can purchase a maximum of 160,000 this year. You have plenty of time to decide whether this offer is of benefit to you, as the double points promotion doesn’t end until July 18, 2023.
Points purchased through this promotion should be posted to your account within 48 hours.
From May 30 to July 18, Hilton Honors members have the opportunity to receive a 100% bonus on purchased points when they buy a minimum of 5,000 points. This means that for every point you purchase, Hilton will match it with an additional point, effectively doubling your point balance. For instance, if you purchase 5,000 points, you’ll receive an extra 5,000 points, instantly doubling your reward potential.
Value and Flexibility:
In our assessment, Hilton Honors points hold a consistent value of 0.5 cents per point, making the 100% bonus offer a compelling proposition.
Considering the nominal value of $50 per 5,000 points, you’re essentially getting an additional $50 worth of points for the same price. This extra boost can make a significant difference when redeeming points for future stays, upgrades, or other exciting rewards.
Hilton Honors uses dynamic pricing for award redemptions which means that the number of points required for a free night can vary depending on the hotel, the time of year, and demand. In general, you can expect to pay more points for a free night during peak travel times, such as holidays and weekends.
However, there is generally a lot of availability for award redemptions, even at popular hotels. This means that you can often find a free night at a Hilton hotel even if you don’t have a lot of points.
Fifth Night Free
Hilton Honors also offer a fifth-night free promotion on award redemptions for elite members. This means that if you book four consecutive nights at a Hilton hotel, you will get the fifth night free.
This long-standing benefit could save you a significant amount of points, especially if you are staying at a high-priced hotel, although bear in mind that this only applies to standard room redemptions, and a points and miles redemption won’t trigger the free night.
If you’re not already a Hilton elite member, consider that there are plenty of credit cards that have Hilton Honors elite status as a benefit, so this might be worth pursuing.
