World of Hyatt launched a month ago promotion for buying points with up to 40% bonus that ends this Friday (October 18, 2019).
Members can buy up to 55,000 points every calendar year before any bonuses. Hyatt has several promotions for buying points throughout the year, but they always max at 40%.
You can access this offer and check your bonus on Hyatt’s website here.
You need to purchase a minimum of 10,000 points to get the 40% bonus.
Price at 40% bonus:
The cost of a World of Hyatt point purchased under this offer at 40% bonus is 1.71 cents each.
Does it make sense to purchase points?
Only if you use them at costly Hyatt properties such as the Park Hyatt Maldives or Paris. This could, however, be a way to acquire them to be used on Cash + Points awards.
Award rooms with Hyatt are available as long as standard rooms are available for sale. This means that points are usually a good value if something is going on in the city that brings the paid rates throughout the roof.
Hyatt sells points several times throughout the year, and the bonus usually maxes at a 40% bonus. If you have been contemplating buying points, now would it be the right time.
