Assuming you max out the bonus, you’ll be paying 1.71 US cents per point.

Each World of Hyatt account is only allowed to purchase a maximum of 55,000 World of Hyatt points a year pre-bonus.

Buying Hyatt points is great to access some of the portfolio’s top tier properties like the Park Hyatt Maldives, a Category 7 property which costs 30,000 points a night (US$513 a night if you buy points). Given that revenue rates here can be upwards of US$880 a night including taxes, there are deals to be had by buying points instead.

It’s not just the top tier properties which have great redemption opportunities- even the lower Category World of Hyatt hotels can be good choices. For instance, the Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit is a Category 1 hotel that will cost you just 5,000 World of Hyatt points a night. If you purchase points in this sale, you will only be paying US$85 a night, lower than the US$130 rates you’d normally find.

Conclusion

Although you should not purchase points speculatively, if you already have travel plans then this can be a great way of getting hotel rooms for less.
