How to earn Hilton Honors points
For Canadians, it is difficult to earn Hilton Honors points. Indeed, the only way with credit cards is to transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Hilton Honors, with a 1:1 conversion ratio.
For example, you can convert 30,000 Membership Rewards points into 30,000 Hilton Honors points.
Then, there are 3 solutions:
We do not recommend buying points during regular periods, as they are more advantageous during promotional periods, as is currently the case.
Point purchase promotions come up regularly: take advantage of them to buy points whenever you can (sometimes the maximum allowed per calendar year is removed).
The transaction is in U.S. dollars. We recommend that you use a card that does not charge a foreign currency conversion fee to avoid paying a 2.5% FX fee:
Note that this points purchase is done on Points.com, a site external to Hilton Honors. Therefore, this transaction does not count as a “travel” expense.

Is it worthwhile to buy Hilton Honors points?
The answer to this question is yes and no:
- If you don’t have any travel plans – or if these are not in the sweet spots area we will see later: do not buy points
- If you have a well-defined travel plan with Hilton hotels in mind, yes, it’s worthwhile to buy Hilton Honors points!
Hilton Honors sweet spots
Hilton Honors points are adjusted according to the room rate in cash.
However, there are a number of so-calledgeographic sweet spots“where it’s more advantageous to pay in points than in cash. And don’t forget: if you get four nights with points, the fifth is complimentary(for Hilton Honors members with Silver or higher status).
Orlando - Disney World
When you redeem Hilton Honors points, you don’t have to pay resort fees at most of the group’s hotels!
So this is an attractive option for some destinations including Orlando!
Here is, for example, the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Disney Springs Area, for five nights during the holiday season.
Paying for your 5-night stay would cost $2,169 US (including a 175 US$ resort fee).
While using points, this same 5-night stay costs 200,000 points or the equivalent of 40,000 points per night (because the fifth night is free). And you don’t pay a resort fee when using points!
So, when buying Hilton Honors points with this offer, you get your 5-night stay at half price!
