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. This is the best public sale price we’ve seen for Hilton Honors; however, I’d note that Hilton also had a sale that ended in December that priced points at 1/2 cent, but allowed 160k points to be purchased. Twice the current allowance, so while the price is outstanding, it isn’t the MOST you could buy. As I always disclose: 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 160k 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 the 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 points. You could buy 160k here, and pick up the outstanding Amex Hilton Aspire with 150k welcome bonus and you’d practically have enough points for a 5 night stay…all in for $800 with this purchase. This is obviously an incredible example of redemption, and most of you won’t jet off to Bora Bora, but this is what’s possible if you so choose.
Since you’re probably going to tell me you’d never find 5 nights with points and accuse me of all sorts of things…I pulled some dates. Feb has wide open space:
Starting late in the calendar you can find plenty of dates with avail.
What would that room normally cost? $900/ night. ( pulled from 12/05 – 12/10 )
