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
