Full Details on New Changes with World of Hyatt Awards

2 free hyatt nights
Written by Charlie

Here are the full details about the new changes with World of Hyatt awards. There is quite a bit changing as Points+Cash reservations change as well as suite award opportunities – for the good with the suites!

Advertiser Disclosure

Here is the confirmation we were waiting for (and somewhat dreading). It turns out there is way more to the details about the Hyatt changes than just the Points+Cash devaluations. I will include the full details here and then break it down later today.

In Short: Because I have been receiving a lot of questions from people about these rumored changes, I wanted to get the official details out quickly. In short, make sure you book any Points+Cash reservations before November 1. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions about any of these changes and I will work to get them answered in the post later today.

So, it is disappointing to see the wonderful Points+Cash awards disappear from the fixed tables. But, having suites added to Points+Cash and giving the opportunities to upgrade to premium suites is really great news!
