This auction is only alive until 12pm Eastern time today. This is a very short-term quick deal that will only work out for one bidder, but the value for Hilton points looks great for the right person. Concert fans with big Hilton points balances (or friends with whom you can quickly pool points), Hilton Honors Auctions has a pair (that’s 2 passes) of Live Nation Festival Passport passes — which originally sold for $799 each and sold out in three minutes — and bidding is currently at only 260,000 points. These passes can be worth a LOT more than $799 each if you can travel to a number of festivals.
- Hilton Honors Auction for two Live Nation Festival Passport passes
- Direct link to Auction
- Passes get you into 90 Live Nation Festivals around the world, such as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball, Reading and Leeds, Lollapalooza, and many more
- The passes can be given as gifts, but once the names for the two passes have been submitted, you will not be able to change the names for the duration of the festival season (they will be non-transferable once you submit two names)
These passes will get you into ninety (that’s 9-0) Live Nation Festivals around the world for the rest of 2017, including sold out shows like Lollapalooza. The Points Guy previously wrote about these festival passports and commenters there indicated that tickets sold out in about 3 minutes at a price of $799 each. To put their potential value in perspective, tickets to Lollapalooza alone were $335 and are sold out (but this pass will get you in). Tickets to Austin City Limits and Bannaroo are also ~$250-$300 per person. It would be easy for a music lover to get a couple thousand dollars in value out of this one if they are looking to travel to music festivals, yielding outsized value for Hilton points, especially considering those festivals that are already sold out. See the full list of festivals here.
The Hilton Honors Auction ends at 12pm Eastern time and the current bid at the time of writing (with about 48 minutes to go) is at 260,000 Hilton points for two passports good for admission to all of those festivals. There’s no telling where the auction will end, but that’s not a bad trade in value even if you only attend a few of the festivals. See the auction for more details and good luck.
