Through October 31st, you can get up to 100% bonus points free when you buy Hilton HHonors points. I just did this for a trip next spring and it saved us hundreds of dollars!

If you buy between 10,000 – 19,000 points you’ll receive 80% more bonus points. If you buy 20,000+ points you’ll¬†receive 100% more bonus points. Points costs one cent each, so 40,000 points would normally cost $400. But with this promotion you’ll get them for $200, or half-off!

It makes sense to buy Hilton HHonors points if you need some to top off your account for an upcoming stay (like I did). This is an especially great idea if you are close to enough points for a four night stay, because 5th nights are free when you book with Hilton HHonors points!

My dad is meeting my family in Fort Lauderdale for a spring break getaway and we were interested in staying at the Embassy Suites Fort Lauderdale. Rooms there are easily $350/night. I had enough points for 3 nights, but was going to be short roughly 40,000 points for another night. I bought the additional points for $200 (thanks to the points sale), which meant we had enough points for an additional two nights because the fifth night was free.

So basically we paid $100/night for a $350/night hotel. That’s a great deal in my book! Grab any Hilton HHonors points you might need now because this sale ends October 31st, 2016!

  • My Frugal Travel Plans for 2017 (So Far)... - The Frugal South

    […] In early March the little one and I are flying to the Miami area to meet up with my dad for a spring break trip. This is always the worst time of year for me so I decided to be proactive and plan a trip to a SUNNY and WARM destination!!! I’ve never been to south Florida so we are going to take a day trip to the Everglades, which is on my bucket list. It will be great to spend time with Grandpa at the pool and beach. I also got a great deal on Southwest flights and I’m booking the hotel with Hilton points. […]
