Buy Hilton Honors points at $5 per 1,000 points Jan 8-Feb 19

Hilton Honors 100% bonus points purchase offer from January 8 to February 19 drops the price to $5.00 per 1,000 points when you buy at least 10,000 points for $100 and receive 20,000 points with 100% bonus points. Members may buy up to 160,000 points through this sale for $800.

My view on whether a buy points offer is a good deal is whether I can find a hotel I would like to stay where buying hotel points offers a significant hotel rate savings.

When it comes to Hilton Honors points, my desire for the past two years has been to stay at DoubleTree Sighisoara, Romania. My last use of Hilton points was a 5th night free stay in October 2018 at Hampton Cluj-Napoca, Romania for 19,000 points.

DoubleTree Sighisoara, Romania

July 19-24 5th night free rate

$200 buys 40,000 Hilton points with this sale. That means $40 per night for a 5-night summer stay using points compared to the flexible rate available today at 92 EUR per night.

460.75 EUR = $512 USD.

Buying Hilton Honors points for this stay reduces the rate by 60% on the flexible rate and a 44% discount on the advance purchase rate of 330 EUR/$366 for a 5-night stay at DoubleTree Sighisoara in peak tourism season July 2020.

  1. I loved Sighisoara when I was there this October. Lots of outdoor bars with very low prices. Wonderful old town.
