The beach at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui. Standard room prices usually top $800, but standard room awards usually cost less than 90,000 points.  That means that rooms can be had for less than $450 per night with this promotion.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Points purchased do not count towards elite tier qualification.
  • Points.com and Hilton Honors reserve the right to terminate bonus promotions at any time.
  • All purchases must be made through the Purchase page on HiltonHonors.com. Timing and order of purchases will be determined by Hilton Honors in its sole discretion.
  • The 100% Points bonus promotion is valid for purchases of 15K points or more up to a total of 80,000 points purchased (160K with bonus) and is available for purchases made between January 11, 2022, at 12:01am ET and February 9, 2022, at 11:59pm ET.
  • Members may purchase a maximum of up to 80,000 points purchase per calendar year (note that this limit is sometimes increased during sales, but not this time).
  • All purchases are non-refundable.
  • Offer is subject to change.
  • Offer cannot be combined with any other offer.
  • Points will be posted to the recipients Hilton Honors account within 48 hours of the completed transaction.
  • Purchased points do not count towards Honors status upgrades.

Best uses

  • 5th night free. Use points to book 5 nights for the price of 4. This benefit is valid on longer stays, so if staying 10 nights you’ll get both the 5th and 10th nights free. Hilton status is required to take advantage of this benefit, but you can get that with the fee-free Hilton credit card.
  • Save money on low category hotels. Hilton hotel awards start at 5,000 points per night, but those can be very difficult to find. 10,000 and 15,000 point properties are more common.  These would cost $50 or $75 when booked with purchased points or less if using the 5th night free benefit.
  • Stay at top tier properties for less. Most of Hilton’s top tier properties top-out at 95,000 points per night for a standard room. With this promotion, 95,000 points would cost you $475. That’s not bad for top tier hotels which often cost $800 or more.

Things to know

  • When you book nights with points, you will not earn points for the stay unless Hilton is running a promotion that awards bonus points per night/stay which includes award nights.
  • Most hotel taxes are not charged on award stays, so this can make the value of buying points even better. Arguably, this factor and the one above roughly cancel each other out.
  • Resort and destination fees are waived on award stays. This alone can make it worthwhile to use points instead of cash for your bookings.

Any known issues using an Amex card to hit minimum spend for SUB? Will it level 3 data be sent as gift card or some other problematic category?

If you use a Hilton amex to purchase this deal, think you will get the bonus “spent at Hilton” points?

Steve

Nope.

Kayexelate

what does is code as? (Travel at least?) just wondering which card to put it on if I don’t earn anything extra from using my Hilton Amex Card

Steve

Don’t expect it to code as anything useful and certainly not travel. Best to use a 2% cashback or 1.5-2 point/dollar card if you have one.

[…] Update 7/21/21: Back again through July 21, 2021. Hat tip to FM […]

Thanks for the post. Glad you brought up that Resort and destination fees are waived on award stays. That is why I us points to book, many places have a $50 a day (when including taxes) resort fee so booking with points really helps.

This isn’t true for all brands. It is true for Hilton in this case but brands like Marriott charge resort fees on award stays.
