The Deal

Key Terms

  • Offer available with purchases made between 12:00 am ET February 19, 2024 and ends 11:59 pm ET April 9, 2024.
  • Purchase 3,000 or more Bonus Points in a single transaction and get a 20% discount.
  • Bonus Points will be awarded upon completion of an individual transaction.
  • In order to participate in a purchase transaction, you must be a member for at least 60 days to purchase or receive Bonus Points.
  • Bonus Points can be purchased in increments of 1,000.
  • Members may purchase a maximum of up to 55,000 Bonus Points per calendar year.
  • Members can receive points in increments of 1,000, up to 55,000 points per calendar year.
  • This exclusive member offer is non-transferable.
  • Additional Bonus Points awarded under this offer do not count towards these maximums.
  • Offer may be withdrawn or changed without notice.
  • Offer cannot be combined with any other offer.
  • Only purchases made online are eligible for the promotion.

Best uses

  • Save money on low category off-peak hotels. Hyatt off-peak award rates start at 3,500 points per night.  At 1.92 cents per point, you can book these properties for $67.20 per night.
  • Stay at top tier properties for less. Most of Hyatt’s top tier properties top out at 30,000 points per night at standard rates. At 1.92 cents per point, you can book these properties for $576 per night. That can be a bargain given that some regularly cost over $1,000 per night. Unfortunately some properties like Ventana Big Sur, which is now all-inclusive, have increased to category 8. That means category 8 properties cost 35,000, 40,000 or 45,000 points per night for off-peak, standard and peak dates respectively. At 1.92 cents per point, buying points for those stays would cost $672, $768 or $864 respectively. That could still end up being good value seeing as paid rates at those category 8 properties also often cost $1,000 per night or more.

Things to know

  • When you book nights with points, you will not earn points for the stay unless Hyatt is running a promotion which offers bonus points on both paid and award stays.
  • Most hotel taxes are not charged on award stays, so this can make the value of buying points even better.  Arguably, this factor and the one above roughly cancel each other out.
  • Resort and destination fees are waived on award stays. This alone can make it worthwhile to use points instead of cash for your bookings.
  • Payments are processed by Points.com rather than Hyatt, so it won’t earn bonus points on a card that earns more at Hyatt or on travel spend. The best card to buy these with is therefore a good everyday spend card, one where you’re working on a welcome offer, etc. You can also click through to Points.com from a shopping portal to earn a little cashback on the purchase – here are the current rates.

If you have Chase Ultimate Rewards and a premium card that allows you to transfer those points to travel partners, transferring Ultimate Rewards to Hyatt will likely make more sense than buying points from this promotion. However, these types of sales can be a good backup if you’re short on Hyatt points and aren’t able to transfer Ultimate Rewards for one reason or another.
