Is It A Good Deal To Purchase Hilton Points With 100% Bonus?


Now through June 3, 2016, you can purchase Hilton points and get 100% bonus. This is the highest bonus I have seen that Hilton had offered in the past.

If you purchase the maximum points of 80,000 points, you will get additional 80,000 bonus points. You pay $800 for 160,000 points. That means the value of your point is 0.5 cents per point.

Is this a good deal? 

The answer is, it depends on how you redeem your night stays at which category of Hilton's hotels.

Hilton's reward chart has 10 hotel's categories below:

Category 1: 5,000 Points/Night
Category 2: 10,000 Points/Night
Category 3: 20,000 Points/Night
Category 4: 20,000 to 30,000 Points/Night
Category 5: 30,000 to 40,000 Points/Night
Category 6: 30,000 to 50,000 Points/Night
Category 7: 30,000 to 60,000 Points/Night
Category 8: 40,000 to 70,000 Points/Night
Category 9: 50,000 to 80,000 Points/Night
Category 10: 70,000 to 95,000 Points/Night

As you can see, 160,000 points will give you 32 nights at category 1 hotel, 16 nights at category 2 hotel, 8 nights at category 3 hotel so on and so forth. Below is just to give you examples of a couple best uses of Hilton points for lower category 2 hotels that are located in tourist destinations:

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur is a category 2 hotel, and therefore requires only 10,000 points per free night stay. Stay there and admire the incredible architecture of the Petronas Twin Towers! 160,000 Hilton Points will give you 16 night stays there.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Beijing is a category 2 hotel, and therefore requires only 10,000 points per free night stay. Stay there and visit the famous Great Wall of China! 160,000 Hilton Points will give you 16 night stays there.
