Hilton Honors has points on sale again with a 100% bonus on purchases through October 22, 2019. The price drops to $5.00 per 1,000 points when you spend $100 for 20,000 points. Members can buy up to 320,000 points for $1,600 during this sale.
This can be a good way to a discount for some hotels. There are definitely some deals to be had at high end expensive hotels for discount rates paying with Hilton points. This is an even better deal when paying points for a 5th night free stay.
My interest in this sale is based more on opportunities at hotels in the 10,000 to 20,000 points where $50 or $100 room nights are a discount on the prevailing room rate. I am still trying to find my way to DoubleTree Sighisoara, Romania for a 5-night trip.

Dec 23-Dec 28, 2019 for 5 nights
40,000 points ($200 to buy) or 120 EUR/night for 600 EUR ($662 USD)
