You can buy a maximum of 55,000 Hyatt points in a calendar year (before bonuses), and receive a further maximum of 55,000 points from another member. I’ve already bought 5,000 points for the year, so my maximum is 50,000 as the screenshot below shows.

Buying Hyatt points at a 40% bonus means you’re paying 1.714 US cents per point.

Here’s a reminder of Hyatt’s award chart:

There is some great value to be had by buying Hyatt points, especially at top-end properties. For example, the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is a Category 6 property (25,000 points a night), and revenue rates are usually in excess of US$1,200 a night. The equivalent cost if you bought 25,000 points would be US$429 a night.

Similarly, revenue rates at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome are upwards of US$800, but as a Category 7 property you could get the same room for 30,000 points (US$514) a night.

It’s not just at the uberluxe properties where Hyatt points can be useful- remember that free nights start from 5,000 points at Category 1 properties, or US$86.  This can offer good value at properties like the soon-to-be-reopened Hyatt Regency Bali, where rooms start at US$160 pre-tax. You don’t need to pay taxes on a points redemption, so long as the stay is fully paid for with points.

If you’re thinking of using Hyatt points for points + cash rates, you should be aware of the rumours circulating that Hyatt will devalue these awards come 1 November. The points requirement will remain the same, but the cash portion may increase. If you want to book a points + cash award, I’d get it done asap.

What card should I use?

Thanks,
Alex

New to Hyatt. I don’t see suite availability for any date combination I searched though, even with a length of stay of 3 nights or more. How did you make the booking?
