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:

If we do not recommend purchasing points during a regular period, it may be worthwhile during a promotional offer like now.

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.

Ordinarily, buy Hilton Honors points costs 0.01 US$ / point (0.013 CAD$): the saving represented by this bonus is therefore substantial by obtaining points at 0.005 US$ (0.0063CAD$)

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

Hilton Honors sweet spots

Hilton Honors does not have an award chart by category like Marriott Bonvoy. Points needed are adjusted to the cash rate.

However, there are so-called“geographical sweet spots.” 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!

You would have to buy 100,000 points for $1,000 USD to get 200,000 points during this promotion (0.5 cents/point). Since you can only buy 80,000 per calendar year, you’re only 40,000 points away from getting those 200,000 points. Remember, you can transfer points from the American Express Membership Rewards program.

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).
