The Daily Getaways are still underway and, unfortunately for them, there have been some changes with some of their offering partners in value since last year. One of those changes is with Hilton points. Since they launched their new point redemption model, the value of Hilton points for many has dropped. So, should you buy these Hilton points with them costing .48 cents each?
Daily Getaways: Hilton Points On Sale
The Daily Getaway Brief
At 1PM ET today, you will see 3 different Hilton point options available for purchase. Here is what they are:
- Buy 30,000 Hilton points for $144 | .48 Cents Each | 450 available
- Buy 100,000 Hilton points for $480 | .48 Cents Each | 275 available
- Buy 250,000 Hilton points for $1,200 | .48 Cents Each | 236 available
With the ability to mix points and cash, the rate to “buy” points with that method is often around this price point and maybe even a bit under. Not only that, but it is incredibly easy now to obtain Hilton points with the highest credit card offers ever on the Amex versions and the ability to pool points between 11 different accounts. With so many changes and the ease of acquiring Hilton points, I would say NO, it is not that good of a deal at this time.
However, the exception would be if you need Hilton points since you do not have any or maybe if you wanted to redeem at a top tier property. If you were to spend 90,000 points, it would cost you $432 for that night with these points. There are a few Hilton properties that would cost more than that so in that case, it could be a good deal.
No matter what, I do not expect these to sell out today (or maybe at all) so you may not need to decide right now.
Do you have a specific use in mind to buy these points?
