Hyatt Gold Passport has a new campaign for buying up to 55,000 points and getting maximum of 30% bonus (there could be better account specific offers).
Hyatt Gold Passport has several promotions for buying points throughout the year but they usually top at 40% bonus.
You can access this offer and check your bonus on Hyatt’s website here.
The price at 30% bonus:
The price of a Hyatt Gold Passport point purchased under this offer is 1.85 cents each.
Does it make sense to purchase points?
Only if you use them at very expensive Hyatt properties such as the Park Hyatt Maldives or Paris. This could be, however, way to acquire them to be used on Cash + Points awards.
Award rooms with Hyatt are available as long as the standard rooms are available for sale. This means that points are usually good value if there is something going on in the city that brings the rates throughout the roof.
Seems that Hyatt Gold Passport has now had couple back to back offers for buying points at various bonus amounts. Unless your personal bonus is 40% or you don’t need points right now, I would take a pass of this offer.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
