Hilton Honors Point Cash Value
Get the details on how you can get the best value out of your Hilton Honors Points and calculate the cash value of your points based on redemptions.
Hilton Honors Points have an average value of 0.6 cents each when redeemed for free nights at Hilton brand hotels. With some research and determination, you can even get as high as 1 cent per point. Other redemptions such as car rentals, gift cards, and Amazon.com purchases will generally give you a lower value of around 0.2 cents. Hilton Honors Points can also be transferred to over 40 different programs.

Redeem Points For Free Nights
The primary purpose of Hilton Honors Points is to redeem them for free nights at Hilton brand hotels. When redeeming your points, you will get an average value of about 0.6 cents per point. Finding the best value of your points will take a little bit of back-and-forth work, but it's not too hard to do if you're determined.
Booking Free Award Nights With Hilton
In order to easily get the cash value of your Hilton Honors Points when booking Hilton brand hotels, you'll want to run a search with the 'Use Points' box checked. This will give you a list of results in the area you specified and the average cost in Hilton Honors Points for each hotel.
Once you find a hotel that peaks your interest, click on the 'Book A Room' option. You can also right click on this option and open the results in a new tab if you're looking to do this faster without consistent use of the browser's back button.
You'll land on a page that is separated by room type. Each room type will display the cost for the different rate plans. If there's award availability, you will see the cost in points for that particular room type. Next to each rate plan, you'll see the 'Open In New Window' symbol.
Clicking on the Standard Room Rewards rate plan will give me the total cost in points. The value shown is the average cost per night in Hilton Honors Points. So at an average of 60,000 points per night, this 4-day booking would cost a total of 240,000 points.
Going back to the list of rate plans, I can now select one of the cash options. The prices listed is the average cost in cash minus taxes and fees. So don't be fooled by the prices shown in the results page. You'll want to dive into the rate details to see the real cost of the hotel. For this booking, I'll choose the Honors Discount Advance Purchase price which shows $451 per night. You'll see that while the base cost of the hotel is $1,804 ($451 times 4-days), there's still taxes and fees to be added.
With a total cost of $2,129, redeeming this hotel for 240,000 Hilton Honors Points would give your points a value of 0.8 cents each which is above the average of 0.6 that I normally put them at.
Those who have Hilton Honors Elite Status can get an even better deal thanks to the 5th night free perk. Since I have Hilton Gold Status (thanks to The AMEX Platinum Card), I can add an additional night free of charge!
The 5th night free perk doesn't apply to cash bookings, so I would have to dish out some extra cash if I wanted to pay for an extra night.
So for a 5-night stay at this property, redeeming my Hilton Honors Points would give me a value of 1 cents each which is fantastic. This is why I recommend taking full advantage of the 5th Night Free Perk as it can help you obtain great value out of your Hilton Honors Points.

Redeem Points At Hilton All-Inclusive Resorts
You can use your Hilton Honors Points to book all-inclusive resorts that fall under the Hilton brand. This will give you around 0.6 cents in average value, with the ability to get more or less depending on what season you're booking your hotel in.
Hilton has a total of 8 all-inclusive resorts located in Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Egypt, and Turkey. Those all-inclusive resorts are:
- Mexico: Hilton Puerto Vallarta Resort
- Jamaica: Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa
- Egypt: Hilton Sharks Bay Resort
- Egypt: Hilton Marsa Alam Nubian Resort
- Turkey: Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort & Spa
- Turkey: Hilton Bodrum Turkbuku Resort & Spa
All of Hilton's all-inclusive resorts are pretty resonably priced when it comes to redeeming Hilton Honors Points or paying cash. If you're looking to go all out, I recommend taking a look at their available options.
Redeem Points For Car Rentals
Hilton Honors rewards members can redeem Hilton Honors Points for car rentals with Alamo, Enterprise, and National. When you redeem your Hilton Honors Points for car rentals with these agencies, you will get an average value of 0.2 cents per point.
The amount of points it costs to redeem a car rental can cost just as much as a free night in most instances. I recommend checking out CarRentals.com to get a list of car rental prices in the area. This will help you decide on whether or not it's worth paying cash.
Redeem For Lyft
Hilton Honors Points can be redeemed for Lyft credit at a value of 0.22 cents per point. Redemptions start as low as 4,500 Hilton Honors Points for a $10 credit. You can only apply Lyft credits to accounts based out of the United States at the moment, but Canada will be an option soon as well.
You can redeem your Hilton Honors Points for Lyft credits using the Lyft Loyalty Wallet portal. You can get the full details on earning and redeeming Hilton Points with Lyft as well as how to link your account by reading our Hilton Lyft Partnership article.
Redeem Points On Amazon.com
Hilton Honors Points can be redeemed at checkout on Amazon to pay for purchases. 500 Hilton Honors Points converts to $1 on Amazon which gives you a value of 0.2 cents per point. At the time of payment, you can choose how many Hilton Honors Points you wish to apply to the order. While this is a relatively low value, it could still be very useful if you want to grab something of Amazon and keep some cash in your pocket.
In addition to that, the Hilton Honors Credit Cards sometimes feature bonus points for shopping with Amazon. So if you love both Hilton and Amazon, you should consider picking up one of the four Hilton AMEX cards available.
You can check out our Hilton Amazon Partnership article to get the full details on redeeming your Hilton Points on Amazon.com as well as the steps on how to link your Hilton and Amazon account.
If you do a great deal of spending on Amazon, check out Amazon's Credit Cards which offer 3%-5% cash back on Amazon and Whole Foods Store purchases.
Redeem Points For Event At Hilton
Hilton Honors Points can be used for Event Credits. These are used for a future meeting or event at any Hilton Hotels. Redeeming your points for Event Credits will give your Hilton Honors Points a value of 0.2 cents each. You will have to contact Hilton in order to redeem your points for Event Credits. When you're ready to use your Event Credits, be sure to let the hotel sales team know.
|Hilton Event Credits|

|50,000 Hilton Honors Points||$100 USD|
|75,000 Hilton Honors Points||$150 USD|
|125,000 Hilton Honors Points||$250 USD|

Donate Hilton Points
As with most rewards points, you can donate Hilton Honors Points to charity. Hilton Honors does this through PointWorthy.com. You will have to create an account with them and link your Hilton Honors account. Donations start at 4,000 Hilton Honors Point which is equal to a cash value of $10 USD giving your points a value of 0.25 cents each.
Other Ways To Redeem
While Hilton's transfer ratios aren't as favorable as others, the option to transfer Hilton Honors Points to over 40 different airline partners and Amtrak is available. I recommend taking a look at the full list and seeing how Hilton's transfer partners compare to Marriott, Hyatt, and AMEX's Membership Rewards.
