What’s the deals where you buy or gift points or miles?
Various loyalty programs are currently each offering a bonus when you gift or buy miles or points within the month and you can earn up to 100% more.
Hilton HHonors members can currently earn 100% bonus points through June 3rd, 2016.
With JetBlue TrueBlue, you can earn up to 40% more points, but the offer expires soon; gift or buy your points through May 20th, 2016.
Get a bonus of between 50% and 100% when you gift or buy United MileagePlus miles by May 23rd, 2016; the mystery amount you’ll receive will be either 50%, 75%, 80% or 100%.
Gift or buy at least 5,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points by June 15th, 2016 to receive 30% more.

Is it worth it to buy or gift points or miles with these deals?
A 100% bonus for Hilton HHonors members can often be useful for periods of high occupancy or when using Points & Money.
JetBlue members needing a specific amount of points for an award can make use of the TrueBlue promotion, but otherwise it may make sense to wait for a higher bonus to be offered.
If you’re lucky enough to receive a bonus of 100% with the United MileagePlus promo, this could be worth utilizing, but otherwise you may want to wait for a higher bonus; we’ve seen several offers of 100% for all members in the recent past.
Slightly higher bonuses may be offered by Hyatt Gold Passport during the year, so there’s no rush to take advantage of a 30% bonus unless you need to top off an award.
It’s quite often the case that it’s only really worth buying or gifting points only when they are needed, rather than buying speculatively.
