World of Hyatt’s first promotion of this year to buy Hyatt Points with up to 25% off through February 29th is about to end in a couple days and could be worthwhile to have a closer look at. Members can buy up to 55,000 points every calendar year before any possible bonuses. Hyatt has several promotions for buying points throughout the year, but they always max at 40% (bonus).
You can access this offer and check your bonus on Hyatt’s website here.
In order to receive the 25% discount on the purchase of points a minimum purchase of 5000 points is required under this campaign.
Price example at 25% off (I personally purchased 37,000 points yesterday):
I bought these points because I have friends staying at the Park Hyatt Kyoto next month and wanted to treat them with a guest of honor booking while saving at least 50% off the average daily rate considering the price of 30,000 points ($540).
Why buy Hyatt points?
I like Hyatt points because of their flexibility. Award rooms with Hyatt are available as long as standard rooms are available for sale. There are some blackout periods though that include periods with special local events. So far I’ve always been successful calling Hyatt to get a standard room released when they were on sale yet not available for points online.
This is a good opportunity to buy points if you plan to stay at expensive properties like my example with the Park Hyatt Kyoto.
There will likely be additional promotional campaigns throughout the year that offer a higher points bonus or maybe discount so I’d only recommend buying points if you have a specific purpose in mind.
