There is only one week left to take advantage of the double points promotion that Hilton Honors is running - from now until 03 May 2017, purchase at least 5,000 Hilton Honors Points and get 100% more! With that being said, you should only take advantage of this promotion if you have an intended use for the Hilton Honors Points.
Most accounts have an annual limit of 80,000 Hilton Honors Points so if you do take advantage of this promotion, you can purchase 80,000 Hilton Honors Points and get 160,000 Hilton Honors Points for just US$800. One great way to utilise your Hilton Honors Points is at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru.
Reservations made using Hilton Honors Points have the flexibility of cancellation - you are generally able to cancel the booking at least one day prior to arrival without any penalty. On the other hand, advance booking generally have a much stricter cancellation policy.
If we were to compare apples with apples, the Flexible Rate for a King Guest Room at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru goes for MYR 370++ (MYR 431 nett) a night - this is approximately S$139 in local currency. If you were to take advantage of the existing Hilton Honors Points offer, you would pay only US$50 (approximately S$70) for 5,000 Hilton Honors Points (which will give you 10,000 Hilton Honors Points). In fact, if you do have least Silver status in the Hilton Honors Program, you will even receive your fifth night free if you redeem on points - 5 nights at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru for just 40,000 Hilton Honors Points (US$200 or S$280 if you purchase now!) as opposed to MYR 2,155 (S$693).
