That's actually not a bad deal. We have about 2.4M points, so we won't do it. But it's not hard to get more than 0.5¢ per point in value.

Cheers.

I also think that it is fairly reasonable price. I don't plan to buy any. I rather get them for free paying my MFs.

This sale is pretty common. I think a couple of years ago, I bought some so I could stay at one of the Conrads.

I won't be buying due to the current pandemic. Since I got into TS last year, I have been struggling to use my Hilton free nights as I prefer staying in timeshares.

Hilton points sales are a nice trick that Hilton Corp uses to transfer revenue to them instead of the hotel. The individual properties get paid very little for points bookings but Hilton gets multiple times that money. And this money is obtained upfront and they don't have to reimburse the property until guests stay using their points.

Well, I guess the reason I hadn't seen it is that I didn't look...'cause it was clearly out there :) Thanks.

Cheers.
with 2.2 mn points in your account, not sure I can blame you :cool:
