World of Hyatt has just launched yet a new promotion to buy Hyatt points at a 25% discount through August 25, 2021 for purchases of 5,000 points and up.
Members can buy up to 55,000 points every calendar year before any possible bonuses and Hyatt always has several opportunities for buying points throughout the year, but they usually offer a maximum of 40% bonus.
It can make sense to purchase Hyatt points in isolated cases where the rates for individual properties are so high that even the rather expensive World of Hyatt points purchases undercut it.
You can access this offer and check your bonus on Hyatt’s website here.
Based on this discount one would be able to book awards at the following rates:
- 5,000 Points – $90
- 8,000 Points – $144
- 12,000 Points – $216
- 15,000 Points – $270
- 20,000 Points – $360
- 25,000 Points – $450
- 30,000 Points – $540
It’s very hard to make a scenario work where the points bookings would undercut paid rates however these situations exist from time to time especially during peak season.
Category 2/3 properties seem very possible as it’s not unheard of that even basic Hyatt Place properties are running at several hundred dollars per night. This way one could actually score a deal.
t only makes sense if you use them at costly Hyatt properties such as the Park Hyatt Maldives, Kyoto or Tokyo although sometimes the lower classed properties can often make sense as well when the paid rates are high. Otherwise buying at such a high price makes only limited sense especially since in the current travel climate you should be able to get great deals at most hotels.
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 40%. This time around they offer a 25% discount rather than a bonus in the form of points. If you don’t need World of Hyatt points right now, you can save and buy more during these frequent sales at a later time. There should also be another Discover America promotion sometime in fall of this year which hasn’t run in 2020 due to the pandemic and lack of travel demand.
