When To Buy Hilton Honors Points
If you're buying Hilton Points at the standard rate of 1 cent each, the only time worth buying them would be if you're short a few points of a redemption and need to top off your account. There's not many instances in which Hilton Honors Points will give you 1 cent or more in value, so buying a large amount of points at the standard rate will usually be a bad idea.
If you're looking to buy a lot of Hilton Honors Points, the best time to do so will be when they're on sale. Hilton offers a bunch of buy points promotions throughout the course of the year, but their best promotion is the "100% More Promo" in which you'll receive 100% more points when buying them. This means you'll essencially be buying Hilton Points at 0.5 cents each which is half off the standard price.
The plus about buying them at 0.5 cents each is that you can find redemptions for Hilton that can give you more than 0.5 cents each with a little bit of research. This allows you to buy Hilton Honors Points at a low value and then redeem them for a higher value. Combine this with Hilton's 5th night free perk and you can really get some solid value.
