[Last Day] Buy Hyatt Points with 30% Bonus – Use for Awesome Suites & Stack for Point Rebates!

Written by Charlie

Now that you can use Hyatt points online for suites and with this great award rebate, this expiring sale on Hyatt points is definitely worth another look!

While the Hyatt sale on points comes around at least a couple of times a year, this current sale is noteworthy since you can get a rebate on the points used for stays before October 8!

Plus, don’t forget that you can now use points online for some very cool suites (you could do this on the phone before but now you get to see what is available) and buying the points can be a cheap way into some very expensive suites!

Buy Hyatt Points with 30% Bonus

Right up front – this is definitely not the best offer we have seen. The best has a 40% bonus but a 30% bonus isn’t shabby either. Instead, it makes Hyatt points cost you just 1.84 cents per point. With Hyatt points, I find it quite easy for me to get at least 2 cents per point in value out of them so this gives a bit of an edge.

You can buy them at this price (any amount of 5,000 points or more kicks in the 30% bonus) until July 29. If you max it out, you can buy 55,000 points in a year. That would cost you a total of $1,315 for 71,500 points.

15-25% Back on Your Redeemed Points

I wrote last month about this new, special Hyatt promo going on. You can read in greater detail about it here but, here are the highlights you need to know:

  • If you have the Hyatt credit card, you will get 25% of your redeemed points back
  • If you do not have the Hyatt credit card, you will get 15% of your redeemed points back
  • This works for all stays from July 8 – October 8, 2020

Ok, now that you see the meat of the deal (and make sure you visit this post to get the links to register for the promo to get the points back!), let’s move on to the other part of this stacked deal.

Stacking Them Together for Bigger Savings

So, when you put a deal with a rebate on used points together with points that can be bought with a bonus, it translates to stays that could be “bought” for much less than actual paid rates. Here is how this works out with each category – if you have the Hyatt credit card (if you don’t see the table below this one):

Remember that the price shown is after the rebate is received – that takes 6-8 weeks for those points to be received back in your account. The price shown is after buying Hyatt points with the 30% bonus and after the rebate on points has been received.

15,000$69
28,000$110
312,000$165
415,000$207
520,000$276
625,000$345
730,000$414
840,000$552

Here is the table in cost if you do not have the Hyatt credit card:

Hotel CategoryCost in PointsCash Cost for the Points After Rebate
15,000$78
28,000$125
312,000$187
415,000$234
520,000$312
625,000$391
730,000$469
840,000$625

Even under the old 40% bonus, you are still saving some good money by using these two promos, especially if you have a Hyatt credit card!

Things to Take Notice Of

Here are a few things to remember before you jump in:

  • Only buy points if you have a specific use for them and can use them before October 8 to take advantage of these promos
  • You are capped at buying 55,000 Hyatt points in a calendar year
  • You are capped at getting back 30,000 Hyatt points with the 15% bonus and 30,000 points with the cardholder bonus for a total of 60,000 points – per transaction
  • Remember to check actual cash rates to make sure you are getting a better deal this way, especially when you factor in the various earnings you can make with earning Hyatt points and credit card points
  • Remember you do not get your points back for 6-8 weeks later
  • Remember that your preferred hotel may not have award nights available
Example – Park Hyatt New York

Again, check each hotel you are interested in on your own to see what nightly rates are and if there is award availability. But, here is one example how this could be a great deal!

The Park Hyatt New York costs 30,000 points per night. Using this stacking of deals, you would end up paying $414 for an award night.

Here is the cost, after taxes, using the member 20% discount rate!

Use Points for Awesome Suites

You can read more about this new ability to book these suites online with points here, but it is definitely worth poking around to see what kinds of suites are available to book! This is especially true for hotels that are like Category 2 or 3 as they point totals are low but the value may be huge!

Here is one such hotel (this is the suite in the featured photo) – I am staying here in a couple of months and the cost of the room makes the value of points I am using a huge 22.5 cents per point!

So, for this suite that costs over $3,600, you could buy all the points needed for less than $300! Plus, if you have the Hyatt credit card and stay there before October 8, you would get 4,000 points back! Fantastic deal!
