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. However, you can also combine points across accounts to redeem them, so you and your spouse/traveling companion could opt for this if necessary.

As a reminder, here’s the current World of Hyatt award chart:

World of Hyatt has been busy adding smaller chains to its portfolio; in the past few months we’ve seen Destination Hotels, Alila Hotels, Joie De Vivre and SLH get folded into the chain, which means more unique places to redeem your points.

An example of a unique place? Try Ventana Big Sur. It’s often in the shadow of the better-known Post Ranch Inn, but it’s still an amazing property in and of itself, nestled deep within the natural beauty of Big Sur. Rooms here cost upwards of US$1,100 per night during peak period, but can also be redeemed for 30,000 points a night, or US$513 under the current point sale.

Otherwise, 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 during busy periods.

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.

I already bought 55K earlier this year and my annual points purchase limit has been raised to 110K according to my email. Looks targeted.
