Hilton HHonors: 80% Bonus when you buy points and an example of how it can save you some cash


Hilton HHonors has launched a new bonus for buying their points. The bonus of 80% will be awarded when you purchase 5,000 or more points in one transaction. Although we have seen a 100% bonus before that of course is better this 80% bonus can still be worthwhile. Here is just one example:


A stay at the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa in April can be had for 50,000 HHonors Points or at a minimum C$464 on the AAA rate. That AAA rate would also incur about $69 in taxes for a total of $533. Also note that award night stays are not subject to taxes and fees. So what is the better deal, buying points or paying cash?

To buy 50,000 Points with the 80% bonus offer you need to buy 28,000 points for US$280 or about C$373+GST for a total around $390.

What you would rather pay? $390 or $533? I know which one I would pick!

If you don't have an award stay in mind for the next few months I would not buy points now in hopes that they would bring back another 100% bonus so that you can pull even more value out of a deal like this.

Offer details:
Receive 80% Bonus HHonors Points when you buy 5,000 or more points online. Full details Until Feb 17, 17

American AAdvantage: Up to 20,000 Bonus Miles for Transatlantic flights


We were wondering when American would launch their Transatlantic bonus seeing that British Airways has their offer out for a couple of weeks now. We can stop wondering now as American AAdvantage members can now earn up to 20,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for their transatlantic flights on AA, BA, Finnair or Iberia. They have taken a page out of Aeroplan's playbook by not allowing tickets booked before the 19th of January to qualify for this bonus. Now we just have to wait for Iberia's offer and Finnair still has their Transatlantic offer from the fall running until January 31.

Offer details:
Earn up to 20,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles when you fly between the U.S., Canada or Mexico and Europe. Register online (Registration is required) Until Mar 31,17
For First Class Business Class Select Economy Class
Each roundtrip 20,000 10,000 5,000

Only valid for travel on American Airlines marketed nonstop flights (operated by either American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia or Finnair) Bonus miles can only be earned for a maximum of 2 round trips and half the round-trip bonus will be posted after each eligible one-way segment.

January 19 Bonus Offer Highlight: JAL Mileage Bank - Double Miles for select China Eastern flights


Today's Bonus Offer Highlight is yet another buy miles bonus! This one is a little more rare as it comes to us from Icelandair Saga Club but it still can provide some decent value. True its not as lucrative as the 60% we saw earlier this year and they have corrected the decimal issue that saw us buy 128,000 points for under $200 at that time but this can still work out for some people. The reason why is the partnership Icelandair has with Alaska Airlines. If you buy 40,000 points for $480 + the $30 fee ($510) you'll end up with 60,000 points. That is enough for two roundtrip flights with Alaska Airlines within the U.S. and Canada or one round trip to Hawaii, Mexico or Costa Rica. Play your cards right and redeem for flights that cost more than that and your ahead of the game.
