40% is as big as World of Hyatt bonuses get. It is also the most generous, with the full 40% bonus kicking in with a purchase of just 5,000 points. Unfortunately my wife and I got less generous options of 35% and 30% respectively.
The deal is obviously worth a look if you need to top up your account. It may also be worthwhile if considering a stay in a top tier Park Hyatt such as the ones in Paris or Sydney, where buying the points may be cheaper than paying cash.
With a 40% bonus, you are paying $1,320 for 77,000 points (55,000 plus a 22,000 bonus). That works out at 1.71c – or 1.30p – per point.
The new Park Hyatt resort in Mallorca is a location where buying points may make sense. Prices for cash are over £400 during August so a redemption at 20,000 points per night (£260) would be a deal.
