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.
