Analysis

This is at least the fourth Hilton Buy Points promotion in 2017.

Feb 2017 80% bonus on purchases of 5,000 or more.

March 16-May 3, 2017 100% bonus points.

Sep – Oct 5, 2017 50% off purchase price.

May 2, 2017 Daily Getaways $144 for 30,000 Honors points

My purchases this year have saved me about $300 on 5 reward nights. I will likely buy more Hilton Honors points to max out my 2017 purchase limit for a planned spring 2018 trip to Romania to take advantage of category 1 and category 2 hotels there.

Romania Hilton and Wyndham 19 hotels mapped with reward rates  (Sep 14, 2017).

Travel Planning Romania $1,200 to 1,500 for 15 days (Oct 27, 2017).

While I won’t be traveling to Romania until at least March 2018 and have no Hilton stays planned for my upcoming trips, I have found good value in 2017 with purchased Hilton points. I want to have access to the option to buy 80,000 more points in 2018.

I look at 9 to 15 nights in Romania for 75,000 to 100,000 Honors points as a great opportunity for a cheap trip to Transylvania in 2018.
