Owing to a potent mix of technical issues and holiday, euflyer.com spent much of this and last week offline. As such, we have not yet flagged the 100% bonus on purchasing Hilton HHonors points, that many other sites have already reported on.
So, you almost certainly already know about this deal, which lets you buy Hilton HHonors points for just 5 US dollar cents each. The offer ends on 17 June, 2015.
However, what is worth remembering – and separately flagging – is that there is also a select number of Hilton (Category 1) properties where you can stay for just 5,000 points per night. As such, in buying points at this 100% bonus rate, you are paying US$25 per night for your stay at these hotels.
Going slightly more upmarket, there are also 132 Hilton (Category 2) properties available at just 10,000 points per night. Again, taking advantage of this 100% bonus on points purchases, you are paying a very reasonable US$50 a night for these hotels.
Per our articles linked above, the points cost of these hotels is generally very good value, particularly when compared to the cash price. As such, buying Hilton HHonors points with a 100% bonus, and then redeeming these purchased points at these hotels, is very likely to provide you with a great value stay. It is also almost certainly going to be cheaper than simply buying your room with cash directly.
We recently reviewed a 10,000 point hotel at Gdansk airport, Poland, and were impressed with the results – and value.
