For a long time, you had very limited Hilton property available to user your points and money for your stay as well as very rigid rules how you can use your points plus money option for hotel stays. The point and money option are a good deal, and you can combine point and money to get a great room deal, and the option comes in handy if you are short of points for your hotel stay. Many hotel chains like Starwood Preferred Group have lots of property available for a long time for using points and money for hotel stays. Now Hilton has expanded Points+Money option for a stay in 4900+ Hilton Property.
Hilton Points Plus Money Deal for Hilton Property Stay
Hilton has extended points and money option for to more than 4900+ Hilton property worldwide. Until today Hilton had only very few points and money option property available worldwide. The points and money option are also useful to bring down your hotel room per day rental rate, or if you are short of points for your entire stay, you can use points plus money to pay for your hotel stay. One of the better change to the program is you can use a slider to decided how many points you want to use for your per night hotel stay instead of a fixed point plus money option.
What are the Changes Compared to Old Program
|Old Points and Money||New Points and Money|
|Limited Availability||Available at 4,900+ property and no block out dates|
|Fixed combination of Points and Money only||Choose ANY combination of Points and money using our flexible payment slider|
|Points price based on hotel categories||More flexible Points pricing. When rates go down, Point prices can also go down.|

Hilton Orlando Lake Bueno Vista
The Hilton Orlando Lake Bueno Vista will cost you $160.55 if you pay using the money. But if you want to use 20000 points plus money to get the same hotel room the price per night comes down to $76.14. By using points, you will bring the room rate down to $76.14. Based on the discount you received the cost per point used works out to 4.2¢.
Is it a Good Deal?
Now Hilton has removed restriction like fixed points plus money for the redemption as well as flexible points pricing instead of rigid hotel category based point pricing Hilton has improved the program. The points deal always works out to 4 or 5¢ a point, as long as you can get 5¢ or more per point it will be an excellent deal. You can get more value for your points if you are renting a high-value property compared to low-value property.
