The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Hyatt is offering up to a 40% bonus when you purchase points through December 31st, 2019 as long as you purchase at least 5,000 points.

 

 

The Fine Print

  • Valid until June 11th, 2019

Our Verdict

You can make the deal better by going through a portal for another 2.5% through Topcashback. That would bring down the cost of points to 1.671¢, you’d obviously get the credit card rewards of whatever card you used as well. Personally I never purchase points, I’d prefer to stay at non chain hotels in most cases and generally get better value by stacking discounts at places like Hotels.com. I know some people go gaga over Hyatt points, so this could be a good deal for them. Pretty sure 40% bonus is the best bonus they offer, but please correct me in the comments.

Park Hyatt properties seem to range around $500-$800 per night. I’ve now had the absolute pleasure of staying at PH’s in Paris, Tokyo, New York and Sydney. As a points & miler, all the stays have been on points. 30k points would cost about $501 are there are (mostly) no taxes and city charges on points stays. There is value here, but primary value would be vs. a paid stay. Taxes in Tokyo exceed 20%.

I can understand all the opinions mentioned here. I do live in Tokyo and from Oct 1st the hotel taxes and fees will = 23% (not to mention any parking or resort fees). But I still lean to not buying the points because we actually did spend our 10 year anniversary in the Maldives last month where I had booked the new Waldorf for 7 days all on points with Diamond status. But I still chose to cancel it and actually pay coincidentally just over $700 per night for an alternative hotel cash booking. It made me cringe to pay that amount each night but we never regretted it one bit. So even for a special occasion, you might find the points will not be used. And, now I’m stuck with a bunch of Hilton points that were transferred from Hawaiin Air that I’m finding very difficult to spend. One caveat is that there is often a devaluation ahead of these deals.

The thing is that these can be manufactured thru Chase for less… so this is a good deal but not for our community.

I’ll keep that in mind for next year when I’m scheduled to get under 5/24.

Can MS for better value with the Hyatt card if you’re near a Simon Mall with current $1000 gift card availability.
These points also help you earn tier rewards for even more value.
If you’re staying a lot at Hyatt, for me, MS with Hyatt at Simon Mall is a much better value than Chase when accounting for tier bonuses.

Also keep in mind daily getaways will be selling Hyatt points for 1c on May 8… but those will likely be gone in an instant.

i never try for that anymore. u know wat else? so funny people talk shit about HH, but u know how fast those DD HH pt packages went off the shelves? didnt even have a chance.

Lantean

right but it’s mostly a function of very few Hyatt packages being offered compared to other hotel programs.

for HH… they do have specific use for sure, I agree they are not useless. 🙂

So 77K Hyatt for $1,320 is $17.14 for 1,000 Hyatt points.
There is a Hyatt house in Fishkill NY (where we go often) which is only 5K a night ($120 to $150 cash price).
With this deal you will pay $85.70 instead of $135ish.
I dont buy miles or points. But Hyatt points are definitely underrated. A Hyatt House 5K is as nice (if not better) then a 30K IHG Holliday Inn or a 30K Marriott Fairfield Inn.
(When I see Chase INK at 80K, I read 16 nights at Hyatt 5K).

Lolwut?? People go Gaga over Hyatt points all the time. It absolutely is not underrated.

Unfortunately, Hyatt fishkill has been moved to cat 2 for 8000 points. So now the cheapest option to the north of NYC is Hyatt place new haven ct for 5000 or Hyatt regency Greenwich ct for 8000 (this one comes with lounge!)

Park Hyatt in$ Yerevan Armenia. 5K per night. But prices in this country are cheap and you can find a nice hotel for $50 al nite. A hostel around the corner with a private room and bathroom is $20

This would be awesome if they had fifth night free on award nights.

Good point

Honestly I prefer the lower points per night. With Hyatt you are basically getting fifth night free value from a single night booked. The 5k hotels are awesome and 30,000 for their top tier is pretty sweet. It makes the loyalty program so much better because using chase points doesn’t sting to bad. I can’t use chase points for any other hotel chain even with 5th night free.

I wonder if using the Chase Hyatt card would net you an extra 3x per dollar spent when buying these points. I would think so, right!?

Abey

I dont think so because youre buying it from points.com Same with IHG points.

I’m a very light traveler and these points would not be of much use to me for hotels. Has anyone done the calculations to see if these are good to buy and wait for a Hyatt to United conversion bonus and then make the transfer to United? I know it sounds a long twisted way to get United miles, but even though I do not travel frequently, I like to save United miles for that annual or bi-annual vacation and would buy the points if it made sense.

there are so many more less expensive ways to get Hyatt points or United Miles… like transfer from UR when you get 5x categories like for the freedom card… or other ways very common to this community to increase the number of points or miles in your account by increasing your usage of the cards.

My offer is slightly different:

Purchase 5,000-9,000 points you receive a 20% bonus
Purchase 10,000-19,000 points and receive 30% bonus
Purchase 20,000+ points and receive 40% bonus

Can get great value in some cases. I have a 7 night stay at Cat 1 that would be a little over $200 per night after taxes. 35,000 points vs $1,430

That’s some expensive cat 1

I stayed at the Hyatt near the PHX airport recently. The rate on the web site was $150/night or 5000 points. So in this instance purchasing points would have been a clear win.

I was able to get 77,975 points for a rate of $0.0161. I just booked Hyatt Park NYC 1 room x 2 nights on New Year’s eve, totally worth it.

Hyatt stopped offering free points for expired anniversary certificate from the old hyatt credit card. Anyone have recent experience with this?

Also if i cancel the hyatt card within one month of the annual fee does the free anniversary certificate deposited also get canceled?
