Until January 19, 2023, you can get 25% off at the Hyatt Club (by purchasing at least 5,000 points in one transaction).Hyatt points purchase (by purchasing at least 5,000 points in one transaction).*
*This is a recurring promotion, the last one was a 30% discount and ended on September 30, 2022.
The normal annual points purchase limit is 55,000 points (pre-bonus) per account per calendar year. However, the purchase limit has been extended to 110,000 points during the offer period.
So if you want to buy 110,000 Hyatt points, it will cost you $1,980.
Is it worth buying Hyatt points?
The answer to this question is yes and no.
In Canada, we are not fortunate enough to have credit card options that allow us to earn World Of Hyatt points (as opposed to the multiple credit card options available to earn Marriott Bonvoy points).
So it’s interesting to target places where award stays are attractive vs the cash rate!
And remember: when redeeming World Of Hyatt points, you don’t have to pay taxes or service charges, unlike cash rates!
For example, you can purchase 36,000 World Of Hyatt points for $648.
You could then use them for three nights at this gorgeous Hotel in Cambodia, the Park Hyatt Siem Reap.
This hotel is classified as a Category 3 hotel and therefore costs 12,000 points per night.
Its rate per night is particularly expensive at 315 USD / night (+ fees and taxes), with the same cancellation conditions.
So by purchasing 36,000 points for $648, you could stay at this hotel that would have cost you $1,155. That’s a savings of nearly 50% through the purchase of Hyatt points.
But if you’re not in one of these situations, we don’t recommend buying points: select other programs like Marriott Bonvoy or Best Western Rewards, for which it’s much easier to get points with credit cards!
