Does it make sense to purchase Hyatt points?
You can only do better by purchasing points and using them instead of cash in rare instances.
It would require the hotel category to be relatively low compared to cash prices OR at a very high end property such as Park Hyatt’s in Paris, Rome and Sydney.
You can save a lot at the Grand Hyatt Sao Paulo by buying the points and using them instead of paying the cash rate (8000 points instead of paying $500). You can read more about this here.
You should only buy these points if you have specific use in mind. This is the usual price of a Hyatt point during their sales.
