The minimum purchase for the bonus is 5,000 points, which is lower than usual. 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.
The new-ish Park Hyatt resort in Mallorca is a location where buying points makes sense, see photo above. 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.
It is also well worth a look if you’re heading to Kyoto. The new Park Hyatt Kyoto regularly sells for over £1,000 per night – I saw it as high as £2,000! – so buy 30,000 points for $504 is a steal. I covered Park Hyatt Kyoto here.
