In Canada, other than buying Hyatt points, the only way to earn World Of Hyatt points is by staying at hotels members of the World of Hyatt program.

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

I value World Of Hyatt points at 1.7 US cents (or 2.1 Canadian cents), although they can be used at a much higher value.

As part of this promotion, you can buy Hyatt points for 1.68 US cents.

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 buy 36,000 World Of Hyatt points for US$605.

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 costly at US$ 315/night (+ fees and taxes), with the same cancellation conditions.

So, when buying 36,000 points for US$605 you could stay at this hotel… instead of paying US$1,155. That’s a savings of nearly 50% through the purchase of Hyatt points.

Conclusion

Therefore, buying Hyatt points can be interesting for some, whether with a specific travel goal and/or to top up a World Of Hyatt points balance to get a free night / free stay.

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!
