Save 25% when you buy World of Hyatt points – and cap doubled

Hyatt is offering a 25% discount when you buy 5,000+ World of Hyatt points via this link. The offer runs to 19th January 2023.

What is important here is that the annual purchase cap is doubled. This means if, like me, you have already bought your maximum 55,000 points this year, you can now buy another 55,000.

Even better, as the offer runs to mid January, you could buy another 110,000 points in the New Year. Having just booked a 10 night US holiday for Easter, it is very likely that I will jump on this.

World of Hyatt buy points bonus

This offer is obviously worth a look if you need to top up your account.  It may also be worthwhile if you are considering a stay in a top tier Park Hyatt such as Paris, where buying the points may be cheaper than paying cash – here’s my recent Park Hyatt New York review where I did just that.

This clearly won’t work at all Hyatt properties.  However, if you are visiting an expensive city at peak season it is definitely worth doing the maths. One upside of the cap being doubled to 110,000 points is that you can now buy enough points in one go for a 2-4 night break at a top hotel.

Remember that this is a 25% discount – not a 25% bonus. A 25% discount is equivalent to a 33% bonus which is about as good as it ever gets from Hyatt.

We value Hyatt points at 1.3p. At the top end you are paying $1,980 for 110,000 points, which is 1.48p each. You won’t get a steal on this basis but you should still come out on top at a good hotel on an expensive night. It’s also fair to say that, given current hotel prices, my 1.3p valuation is very conservative.

(Let’s take Thompson Central Park New York which I reviewed recently. Taking a random weekend in late April, standard rooms are 25,000 points or $823 inc tax. You’d pay $450 + $40 destination fee if you bought the points during this offer.)

The chain has some excellent hotels, and I genuinely find Park Hyatt to be the best luxury chain which is run by one of the multi-brand groups.  It doesn’t beat Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental etc but I’d take one over a Ritz-Carlton, Waldorf Astoria or St Regis any day.

Hyatt has started letting you book suites online for points and there are some bargains to be had. Here is how I used that feature in Paris last year. Looking at suite upgrades, you are paying 6,000 points per night – or 9,000 for a premium suite – which would be (x 1.48p) £89 per night. This is good value, especially if the suite automatically gets you lounge access too.

Note that you must have been a World of Hyatt member for 60 days in order to buy points.
