Hilton HHonors sold points for $5 per 1,000 points during Daily Getaways this year. But, you had to spend $500 for the minimum purchase of 100,000 points. Now through June 17 you can buy Hilton HHonors points through Points.com for $5.00 per 1,000 points starting as low as $10 for 2,000 points.
You can buy up to 160,000 Hilton HHonors points for $800 with this deal.
For someone like me sitting on 14,000 HHonors points, I can buy 6,000 points for $30 and with 20,000 points, there are many more redemption opportunities available through Hilton HHonors.
Here is a real example I quickly found for a hotel stay next week in Orlando, Florida to save hundreds of dollars.
Hilton Garden Inn Orlando International Drive North
4-night stay May 31- June 4, 2015
- $139 room rate best flexible rate ($625.50 total after tax)
- $140 AAA rate breakfast for 4 ($630.00)
- $132 AAA rate room only ($594.00)
- 20,000 points Standard Reward (80,000 points)
- 8,000 points + $40 Points & Money Reward (32,000 points + $180 after tax)
Points & Money reward nights reduce the room rate from $594.00 to $180.00. That is $414 saved with 32,000 points.
Since I only have 14,000 points, I need to buy 18,000 points for $90.
HHonors will sell me points instantly at time of booking for $7.50 per 1,000 points. That is less than the standard $10.00 per 1,000 points to buy HHonors points, but 50% more than the $5.00 per 1,000 points rate available for purchases through Points.com by June 17, 2015.
The four night room rate is reduced from $594 to $270 using my 14,000 points and buying 18,000 points to book four nights at the Points & Money rate.
Even if I had no points, I can buy 32,000 points for $160.00 and book the Points & Money reward stay for $340.00 all-in. That is still a $250 savings on a hotel room next week and drops the nightly after-tax room rate from $148.50 per night to $85 per night.
This is a great deal for buying Hilton HHonors points.
