Why a 40% bonus when you buy World of Hyatt points means a good Mallorca deal

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Until 27th November, Hyatt is offering a 40% bonus when you buy World of Hyatt points via this link.

This 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.

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.

At the top end, you are paying $1,320 for 77,000 points (55,000 plus a 22,000 bonus).  That works out at 1.71c – or 1.33p – per point.

Park Hyatt Mallorca is a great way to use this

The relatively new Park Hyatt resort in Mallorca is a location where buying points may make sense.   Prices for cash are still a little scary – rooms from Euro 484 (£430) in August 2019, or Euro 523 (£465) if you want a cancellable one.  A redemption at 20,000 points per night (£266) would be a great deal.

£266 per night for a 50 sq m room in a brand new 5-star resort in Mallorca in August is an outstanding deal.  The Park Hyatt is actually fairly cheap for cash at £465 per night because it is still new – the St Regis Mardavall is €800 (£700) per night for a cancellable room in the same week.

    Treating my girlfriend to a weekend away at the Park Hyatt Mallorca in December. Probably worth mentioning you can book through FHR and get all the extra perks – the booking was only £190 which I thought was good value. Weather will be a bit of a gamble, but we are there for the spa mainly!

    • Rob says:

      Emyr can do this as well via Hyatt’s luxury travel agent scheme and you’re guaranteed to pay Best Flex online price – FHR can be higher.

      • TM says:

        Ah – oh well. I don’t suppose you might consider writing an article looking at the cheapest FHR bookings (on average?) It’s really difficult to search for cheap FHR bookings quickly, you have to search each location, so this might be valued by readers.

        I have found a few: the Park Hyatt Mallorca, the one in Malta, and a few in the south of France (Nice, Cannes area)

    Really OT and as no bits today, just a reminder that if you’re flying with Level you can’t pay for stuff on board with Amex.
