You can use points to buy things from their website now. Poor rate, I'd say ~$65 for the 65k points. Probably worth 2-3 nights for a 2-3 stars hotel stay. Not worth a hard credit pull, IMO.
Actually the true redemption value of Hilton points lies in getting AXON or GLON rates
] for 4 nights- where you can get amazing values for 4 nights or multiples of 4.
For example - The Hilton Tokyo
] or the Waldorf Astoria in Rome
] .Or any other Category 7 hotel.
These hotels cost over $300-$500 a night.
Using the AXON rate you can get 4 nights for 125-145k points.
AXON5 (four nights in a Category 5 hotel) = 125,000 points
AXON6 (four nights in a Category 6 hotel) = 125,000 points
AXON7 (four nights in a Category 7 hotel) = 145,000 points
