Hyatt Gold Passport has launched a bonus of up to 20% when you buy Gold Passport points before June 1st.
The link is here (scroll down and click on the Hyatt logo).
The deal is:
- Purchase 1,000 to 19,000 points and get a 10% bonus
- Purchase 20,000 to 29,000 points and get a 15% bonus
- Purchase 30,000 to 40,000 points and get a 20% bonus
The most expensive room in the Hyatt system will not cost you more than 30,000 points. Hyatt also offers GUARANTEED reward availability if standard rooms are available for cash.
In some circumstances, this can therefore be a good deal. The Park Hyatt in Paris is €840 on June 9th for example. Buying 30,000 points (ie 27,000 + 15%) would cost you $648 or just €465 – and you are guaranteed availability if they standard rooms left. Such examples are not common but it can offer a good deal if you are desperate, for example, to recreate Lost In Translation at the Park Hyatt Tokyo!
