Buying World of Hyatt points could be a smart strategy to nab a luxury hotel room for less than the standard cash price, but only if you time it right. Points are generally quite expensive to purchase.
However, sometimes the loyalty chain runs deals for discounted miles or bonus points on your purchase, both of which serve to get you better value while topping up your account.
What is the current World of Hyatt offer?
The average bonus is 35% and so this bonus offer is not as good value as those that we have seen in the past.
- The maximum amount you can buy is 71,500 points, including the bonus, for US$1,320, or about 1.85 US cents per point.
- This offer expires 24 November 2020.
Disclaimer: Always make sure you have a specific use in mind before purchasing, especially with the current travel situation worldwide. Standard room rates are cheaper than they’ve ever been.
Previous promotions have offered World of Hyatt points with the following bonus amounts:
|Date||Bonus offer (%)||Discount (%)||Notes|
|January-February 2020||25||not as good as a 40% bonus|
This deal works best if you have some specific travel plans in mind. Check the paid rate of a Hyatt property at your intended destination versus what it would cost to buy and redeem points. While the offer may be particularly good, it is probably still not quite worth buying points speculatively without a specific use in mind.
