Its the last day to take advantage of the Hyatt 40% bonus on points purchase promotion. This offer ends August 9th, 2017 ET.
HYATT 40% BONUS ON POINTS PURCHASE
Bonus is tiered with 30% additional points with purchase of 5000-9000 points and 40% bonus on purchase of 10,000 – 55,000 points in a single transaction. Purchase can be made in increments of 1000 as needed.
You can buy 10K (+ 4K bonus) points for $240 USD at 1.71 Cents Per Point or maximize the promotion by buying 55K (+22K Bonus) for $1320 USD, again at 1.71 cpp. This is good value to top up your accounts for an upcoming stay or buy up to 77K points for a high end redemption.
Lower Category Redemption: Hyatt Regency Montreal is a Cat 2 redemption where a standard room is available for 8000 points (@ 1.71 cpp = ~$184 CAD) or 4000+$77 CAD (@ 1.71 cpp = ~$169 CAD). The retail price for the same room (refundable rate) is listed at $239 CAD. You are better off buying the points and using a cash+points rate, in this case a savings of ~30%.
*Quick Tip: Use Corp Code 51440 to search for Points+Cash rates*
Higher Category Redemption: Park Hyatt New York is a Cat 7 redemption where a standard room costs 30K points/night. 30K @ 1.71 cpp = $513 USD, whereas the retail price for the same room is listed at $1075 USD + Taxes (Nov 1st – Nov 2nd ). Purchasing Hyatt points with 40% bonus and redeeming with points in this case, yields a savings of ~48%!
Hyatt 40% bonus on points purchase is as good a public offering I have seen this year, I would recommend buying with a specific use in mind. Especially if you want to redeem at lower category properties, there are some hidden gems in Cat 1-2 group.
