Points for half a penny.
Hilton is offering a very solid deal to shore up your Hilton Honors account: For every point you buy, they will give you a free point. Normally you can only buy up to 80k points a year, but this deal will actually double your base amount, and let you buy 160k points, and still get another 160k bonus. Points devalue all the time, so I’d advise you to heavily consider this when making a purchase, and only do so if you have a definite redemption in mind.
What’s an outstanding use of 320k Hilton Honors? How about the drop dead gorgeous Conrad Bora Bora. 80k a night base rate.
If you have Silver or higher status ( Gold comes with an American Express Platinum and diamond with a Amex Hilton Aspire ) you’ll get a 5th night free when using points. That means if you can find the availability, you could stay for 5 nights at the Conrad Bora Bora for 320k.
Since you’re probably going to tell me you’d never find 5 nights with points and accuse of all sorts of things…I pulled some dates. Starting late in the calendar you can find plenty of dates with avail.
What would that room normally cost? $1175/ night. ( pulled from 10/27 – 11/1 )
