World of Hyatt points promotion

Until July 1, 2024, you can earn a 20% bonus on the purchase of at least 3,000 Hyatt points.

This is a recurring offer: the last promotion, which ended on April 9, 2024, offered a 20% discount on the purchase of points.

You must have been a World of Hyatt member for at least 60 days to benefit from this offer. If you’re not yet a member, sign up today and you may be able to take advantage of the next promotion.

The normal annual points purchase limit is 55,000 points per account per calendar year. What’s more, the minimum purchase is 3,000 points for a transaction to get the bonus.

So if you want to buy 55,000 Hyatt points for US$1,320, you’ll receive 66,000 points.

Canadian sales taxes (according to your province) apply to this transaction.

In Canada, apart from purchasing Hyatt points, the only way to earn World Of Hyatt points is by staying at hotels that are part of the World of Hyatt program.

Is it worth buying Hyatt points?

The answer to that question is… yes and no.

In Canada, we’re not fortunate enough to have credit cards that earn World Of Hyatt points directly or indirectly (unlike the multiple credit card options for earning Marriott Bonvoy points).

So buying Hyatt points can be a good solution ONLY when you have a particular goal in mind.

Personally, I value World Of Hyatt points at 1.7 US cents (or 2.3 Canadian cents), although they can be used at a much higher value.

That’s why it’s a good idea to target locations where the points rate is more attractive than the cash rate!

What’s more, when you use World Of Hyatt points to book hotel nights, you don’t have to pay taxes or service charges, unlike with cash rates!

This hotel is classified as a Category 3 hotel and therefore costs 12,000 points per night.

So, if you have 12,000 points for US$240, you could save US$75 at this hotel by purchasing Hyatt points.

Bottom Line

Buying Hyatt points can therefore be interesting for some, whether for a specific travel purpose and/or to top up a World Of Hyatt points balance for a free night/stay.

But if you’re not in one of these situations, we don’t recommend buying points, preferring other programs like Marriott Bonvoy or Hilton Honors, where it’s much easier to earn points with credit cards!
