Hyatt is running another ‘buy points’ promotion. To confuse people, this one offers a 25% DISCOUNT rather than a bonus.
A 25% discount is equivalent to a 33% bonus, to save you doing the maths. This makes it better than the 25% and 30% bonuses we have seen this year, but not as good as the occasional 40% bonus that pops up.
It is clearly worth a look if you want to top up your account in advance of a redemption. It may also be worth buying all of the points you need if you are planning a Christmas break.
One great benefit of World of Hyatt is ‘last room availability’. If a standard room is available for cash it must be made available for points. This can greatly increase the value you get.
Here’s an example. Andaz The Palm Dubai, pictured below, costs £1,515 for a standard room from 24th to 28th December.
Alternatively, it would cost 80,000 World of Hyatt points. You can buy these in this promotion for $1,440 (you and your partner would need to buy 40,000 each and book two nights from each account) which reduces the cost to £1,120.
The ‘buy points’ page is here. The offer runs to 31st December.
