What would we be without aspirations, and what would any traveller be without any aspirational travel goals? From city high rises to remote islands, there are some incredible hotels around the world, but sadly most of them cost an arm and a leg. Thanks to points however, you can get them for just an arm or a leg, rather than both.

Hilton, Hyatt and Marriott are offering some of their best ever bonuses and or discounts on buying points, which brings some fabulous hotels at far more reasonable prices.

Hilton 100% Bonus On Points Purchases

A 100% bonus matches Hilton’s best ever price on points, which means just half a cent per point. With high end redemptions like the Conrad Bora Bora, or the Waldorf Astoria Maldives, you can save hundreds per night via these points sales.

Via the sale, you could buy as many as 320,000 points for $1600. Yep, with the 100% bonus, whatever you buy is doubled. The sale on points runs through November 26th, and you can find the sale and some added inspiration here.

Hyatt Points are extremely valuable, with the highest end properties topping out at 30,000 points per night. Via the sale, which also equals Hyatt’s best ever points bonus, you can acquire points with a 40% bonus through December 31st, 2019.

You could buy 61,600 points for $1056, which would mean top end like the Park Hyatt Maldives, or Park Hyatt Sydney for $500 per night, rather than thousands, or you could buy smaller amounts to top off for an award.  Great properties like the Andaz Tokyo run over $700 per night most of the year, so getting close to 3 nights for $1200 is fabulous value. You can buy points here.

Marriott Bonvoy also offers some fantastic hotel and experience redemptions, like Michelin starred dinners or tickets to the Lakers, and whether you need a few extra points or a whole lot, getting them with a 30% discount is better than the usual price! The sale runs through December 22nd, 2019.

We’re big fans of Bonvoy Moments like the ones mentioned above, but if you need to top off your points balance for a luxury hotel stay, it’s always nice to lock in a discount rather than pay full freight. Marriott doesn’t sell points as frequently as other major brands, so this is worth taking a gander at, which you can do here.
