Hilton HHonors is offering 80% bonus when you purchase points before Feb 08,2016. You can purchase a maximum of 80,000 points during this promotion and you will get 144,000 points for $800 (0.56 cent/point)
Hilton Reward nights starts from 5,000 points per night and goes up to 95,000 points per night. 5,000 points would cost you $27.78, if you buy points during the promotion.
It means, you can get a reward night for $27.78 at category 1 hotels (5,000 points per night). There are not many category 1 hotels available and purchasing points would not make sense for most redemption’s at Hilton Hotels India.
It would make sense to buy points, if you are planning to redeem for an award night at a property like Double Tree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur. You need 10,000 points for an award night and the flexible rates can be approximately $110.
10,000 points would only cost you $55.56 during this promotion.
Hilton is offering 80% bonus points on points purchases though Feb 08, 2016. It wouldn’t make sense to buy points for reward nights unless you are short of few points.
