Get a 40% bonus when you buy World of Hyatt hotel points

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

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

The minimum purchase for the bonus is 5,000 points.  Unlike Hyatt’s last offer, the 40% kicks in immediately from 5,000 points – there is no taper.

40% is the most generous bonus you will see for buying Hyatt points.

This 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.

It is also worth a look if you wanted to take advantage of the great Budapest luxury deal we covered yesterday 8,000 points for a night at Párisi Udvar would be $144 (€128) vs €230-€350 if you pay cash.

The new-ish Park Hyatt resort in Mallorca is another location where buying points makes sense.   Prices for cash are a little scary with rooms over €500 at peak periods.  A redemption at 25,000 points per night ($432 based on buying 50k for two nights) would be a better deal.

When I was at the Aircraft Interiors Expo trade show in Hamburg in April I bought points to stay at the Park Hyatt.  The fair had caused hotel rates to spike to over €500 and there was a substantial saving by buying 15,000 World of Hyatt points per night.  Unfortunately this hotel is now 20,000 points per night but buying would still have made sense.

  1. OT- slightly confused by the new Amex changes, would appreciate some guidance:

    I cancelled my SPG Amex just over six months ago- can I now self-refer from my platinum and get the 12k MR points and 35k Marriott points?

    If not, what should I self-refer to?

    • Alex W says:

      12k yes. 35k no. Only signup bonus available is BAPP if not held BAPP or BA Free in last 6 months.

      • Cormac says:

        Are you sure – from AMEX website for BAPP…
        I understand I will not be eligible for any Welcome Bonus award if I hold or have held any personal British Airways American Express Card product in the past 24 months.
