Hilton HHonors has launched a new points purcahse promotion offering up to a 75% bonus for buying points. The bonus is applicable to purchases of Hilton HHonors points made between 9 September, 2015 and 5 October, 2015.
The bonus is offered on a sliding scale, with the bonus increasing as the number of points purchased increased. The scale is:
- 1,000 â€“ 9,000 = no bonus
- 10,000 â€“ 29,000 = 25% bonus
- 30,000 â€“ 30,000 = 50% bonus
- 40,000 â€“ 80,000 = 75% bonus
At the top end of the scale, a purchase of 80,000 points will give a bonus of 60,000 points (for a total of 140,000 points)
The price of points is US$10 per 1000 points. If you buy the maximum number of points, the price of a point purchased under the 75% bonus works out to be 0.57 cents each.
Unfortunately, with the Australian Dollar where it is at currently, purchasing points is not the deal it used to be. There may still be value to be found in some hotels.
Points may be purchased here.
