World of Hyatt’s last promotion of 2019 for buying points with up to 40% bonus is coming to an end today and tomorrow the counter will start again (Hyatt has an annual limit based on the calendar year for purchasing points).
There are a couple of different varieties how Hyatt sells their points, either at a discount off the price or a bonus in points but they always max out at 40%.
You can also try to purchase Hyatt points through the Daily Getaways once a year.
You can access this offer and check your bonus on Hyatt’s website here.

Does it make sense to purchase points?
You have to do the math based on each property you’re interested in. Mostly the high value properties such as Maldives or nowadays Park Hyatt Tokyo, Kyoto, Paris etc can make sense to purchase and book via points. Especially during peak season such as April (Sakura) in Japan.
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.
Keep in mind that Hyatt has just announced they will introduce seasonality pricing which can have a severe impact on the value of purchased points.
Hyatt sells points several times throughout the year, and the bonus usually maxes at a 40% bonus. If you have been contemplating buying points it would make sense to do it now because it won’t get much lower and the purchased amount would reset at midnight on the 31st of December so theoretically you could buy another 55k a minute later if you wanted to.
