The Hyatt Gold Passport email I received 15 minutes ago states Diamond Member exclusive. “As a Diamond member, you can enjoy an exclusive bonus when you purchase points:

Exclusive offer for our valued members: Enjoy up to a 40% bonus when you buy 5,000 or more points. Offer ends August 18, 2014.

  • Purchase 5,000 to 19,000 points and receive a 20% bonus
  • Purchase 20,000 to 39,000 points and receive a 30% bonus
  • Purchase 40,000 to 55,000 points and receive a 40% bonus”

Hyatt points regularly sale for $24 per 1,000 points.

This offer for Diamond and Platinum elite members reduces the purchase price from $24 per 1,000 points. For a limited time until August 18 you can buy Hyatt points with up to 40% bonus points.

  • 20% bonus – Purchase 6,000 to 22,800 points and pay $20.00 per 1,000 points.
  • 30% bonus – Purchase 26,000 to 50.700 points and pay $18.46 per 1,000 points.
  • 40% bonus – Purchase 56,000 to 77,000 points and pay $17.14 per 1,000 points.

The Daily Getaways offer in June had 40,000 Hyatt points for $373.50 ($9.34 per 1,000 points), but there were only 15 sets of points for sale. This offer is a nice promotion from Hyatt Gold passport with no mouse click competition to buy discount points. This is one of the best deals I have seen for Hyatt points purchases. Hyatt Gold Passport sometimes runs a 25% discount which reduces the cost of points to $18 per 1,000 points. Bonus points are a better deal since members buying points typically need a lot of points to get an extra night or two at a high cost hotel.

Hyatt 40 percent bonus points

  1. Also available for Plats.

  2. Per goldpassport.com, the maximum points purchase per calendar year is 40,000. So, why re they offering to let you buy up to 55,000?

  3. Gene, the email also indicates that they’ve now increased the # of points you can buy up to 55000 a year

  4. Oops, missed that part!

  5. Also, Ric, the daily getaways offer was 70k points for the $700 (with amex), not 40

  6. If this is targeted for Diamond members, and Diamond members automatically receive the email from Hyatt, what is the purpose of writing about this?

  7. This doesn’t seems like a great deal.

    For a category 3 hotel which costs 12k points
    Current promotion 12 x $20 = $240. Many category 3 hyatt costs less than that using cash.

    Its rare that I find buying points worthwhile. The last and maybe only time was with US airways 100% bonus.

  8. @Pete – Little savings all the time add up for a frequent traveler. Say Andaz Savannah Dec 24-27 for a pagan holiday.

    3 nights = $778.13 after tax.

    Reward nights for Category 4 hotel 15,000 points per night X 3 nights = 45,000 points.

    45,000 points = $771.75 when you buy 40,000 points with a 40% bonus for 56,000 points at a price of $960.

    Same hotel, same dates Points + Cash award costing 7,500 points + $100 cash per night. Assume 15% tax on cash portion.

    22,500 points + $345 for 3-night Points + Cash reward stay. $386 is the cost of 22,500 points when buying 56,000 for $960. $731.00 for 3 Points + Cash award nights. This is $47 savings on paying for hotel.

    One example, not a high value example, but indicative that points can save on cash rates.

    Price of points with Hyatt is actually too high overall. There are savings to be found at some hotels. This is not a deal I am jumping on. It truly is the lowest price I have seen for Hyatt points aside from Daily Getaways.

    @CJ – thanks for the correction. Fixed the price.
