We’re in the fifth and final week of Daily Getaways, which is an opportunity to purchase discounted hotel points and travel packages. Today is actually the last day of the promotion. Daily Getaways packages go live at 1PM ET every weekday, and the more popular packages sell out very quickly, so you’ll want to be fast, if interested.
Today at 1PM ET you’ll have the opportunity to purchase discounted Hilton Honors points. This is definitely a popular promotion, though not as popular as the World of Hyatt promotion we saw yesterday. So you should be able to take advantage of the promotion if you want to, but you’ll also want to be quick.
What Hilton points packages are on sale?
The following Hilton points packages are on sale today:
|Number Of Points||Package Cost||Cost Per Point||Number Of Packages|
|30,000 Hilton Honors||$150||0.5 cents/point||450|
|100,000 Hilton Honors||$500||0.5 cents/point||275|
|250,000 Hilton Honors||$1,250||0.5 cents/point||236|
You’re limited to purchasing up to a total of five packages, including three 30,000 point packages, one 100,000 point package, and one 250,000 point package. So you could purchase up to 440,000 points here.
Hilton Honors points purchased through this promotion should post within 3-4 weeks.

Should you buy Hilton points for 0.5 cents each?
Hilton Honors sells points pretty frequently at a discount, and when they do, the cost is typically 0.5 cents per point. So this is the same rate at which Hilton usually sells points directly during a promotion.
The benefit here is that Hilton has a cap on how many points you can purchase per year, and a Daily Getaways purchase doesn’t count towards that cap. That’s why some may find it worthwhile to buy through Daily Getaways.
For more information on the value proposition of this:
- See this post for details on the value proposition of purchasing Hilton points for 0.5 cents each

Which credit card should you use for Daily Getaways?
In case you do decide to make a purchase, Daily Getaways purchases should be coded as travel, so you’ll want to use a credit card offering bonus points on travel.
Note that this includes the general “travel” category, rather than these purchases specifically being coded as hotel stays.
So consider one of the following cards:
- Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which offers 3x Ultimate Rewards points
- Citi Premier℠ Card, which offers 3x ThankYou points
- Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, which offers 2x Ultimate Rewards points

Hilton Honors is a program that has really grown on me over the past few years. I value Hilton Honors points right around 0.5 cents each, so if you have an aspirational redemption in mind, taking advantage of this offer could make a lot of sense.
Do you plan on taking advantage of the Daily Getaways offer for Hilton points?
