For the past few weeks both Hilton and Starwood have offered either a bonus or discount when purchasing hotel points to use at their properties. The current hotel promotions when purchasing points ends today.
Receive up to an 80% bonus when purchasing Hilton hotel points.
- Buy under 10,000 Hilton Honors points and receive no bonus
- Buy 10,000 – 80,000 Hilton Honors points and receive a 80% bonus
Purchasing Hilton Honors points is a great way to boost your existing points balance. Booking rooms using points is a great way to save money on Hilton stays instead of paying cash.
During the promotion you can purchase up to 80,000 Hilton points, and also receive a further 64,000 bonus Hilton Honors points, making a total of 144,000 Hilton Honors points. Purchasing Hilton Honors points with the maximum 80% bonus works out around £4.00 per 1,000 points (charged in dollars at $5.50 per 1,000).
Purchase Hilton Honors points before the points promotion ends on 16th March 2018.
Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG)
Purchase SPG Starpoints with a 35% discount until 16th March 2018.
To save 35% when purchasing Starpoints you need to purchase a minimum of 5,000 Starpoints.
- Buy under 5,000 Starpoints and receive no discount
- Buy 5,000 – 30,000 Starpoints and receive a 35% discount
Starpoints convert instantly into Marriott Rewards, and vice-versa (1 SPG Starpoint = 3 Marriott Rewards points). Status is also transferrable and matched between loyalty schemes, plus you can benefit from the bonus when purchasing SPG Starpoints, as you can then transfer points into Marriott Rewards.
To qualify for the maximum discount of 35% you need to purchase at least 5,000 Starpoints before 16th March 2018.
