If your stash of World of Hyatt points is running low, the latest purchase promotion presents a good opportunity for you to replenish your stockpile — but you’ll need to do so before October 10, 2023.
Here are the details of World of Hyatt’s latest point-purchase promotion. Plus, we’ll go over how to decide if it makes sense for you.
Get a 25% Bonus on World of Hyatt Points
This drops the price of purchasing Hyatt points from 2.4 cents apiece to a more reasonable 1.92 cents.
Here are the terms to be aware of:
- You must be a World of Hyatt member for at least 60 days to purchase or receive Bonus Points.
- Bonus Points can be purchased in increments of 1,000, up to 55,000 points per calendar year.
- The promotion ends on October 10, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Since the promotion is handled through Points.com, you won’t receive bonus category points when paying for the points with The World of Hyatt Credit Card or the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card. You should opt for whichever card you use for non-bonus purchases.
Should You Purchase World of Hyatt Points?
The short answer? It depends. We value World of Hyatt points at 1.5 cents apiece, though it’s often possible to get more value than that. Since this promotion will allow you to purchase points for 1.92 cents per point, you’ll want to ensure that the redemption that you have lined up will yield more value.
Furthermore, we’ve previously seen Hyatt offer a 30% bonus or 30% discount when buying points. Unless you really have a spectacular redemption lined up, you might want to wait until the improved 30% bonus returns.
One great sweet spot here is purchasing the points needed for a Category 1 hotel stay. Since Category 1 hotels cost just 5,000 points per night on standard nights, purchasing the 5,000 points needed for the night would set you back just $90 — often far less than the price of even the most basic Hyatt hotels.
This may not exactly be the most glamorous redemption. However, it can be an excellent and practical way to save money whether you’re visiting family in a smaller city or on a road trip and need a place to crash for the night.Hot Tip:
Like always, whether or not it makes sense to purchase points is determined on a case-by-case basis. If you already have a large balance of World of Hyatt or Chase Ultimate Rewards points, or you don’t have an immediate use for World of Hyatt points, then this is probably a promotion to skip.
On the other hand, if your World of Hyatt points are dwindling and you have your eye on an upcoming redemption that would provide significant cash savings, then purchasing World of Hyatt points with a 25% bonus might be the way to go!
