Amazing Deal on Hyatt Points

Today’s Daily Getaway deals bring you packages of Hyatt points at a really good rate.  You will see many posts about this deal on various blogs because the deal is pretty good – but just be aware this is one where the quantities are VERY limited.  If you are new to the Daily Getaways, they are daily deals for five weeks on discounted hotel stays, discounted points purchases, car rental deals, and more. The travel packages are provided by U.S. Travel Association, in cooperation with participating travel operators of the U.S. Travel Association and advertising support provided by American Express. To get an additional 10% off savings you must pay with any American Express card. Daily Getaways are only open to those who are US residents ages 18 and up (though some packages are for 21+ or even 25+). Here is a link to tips for successfully purchasing these limited quantity deals.

24,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points – $260 ($234 with 10% Amex discount). 

  • 100 available, max purchase of 1.
  • .975 cents per point

30,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points – $330 ($297 with 10% Amex discount). 

  • 35 available, max purchase of 1.
  • .99 cents per point

36,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points – $415 ($373.50 with 10% Amex discount). 

  • 15 available, max purchase of 1.
  • 1.03 cents per point

69,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points – $775 ($697.50 with 10% Amex discount). 

  • 15 available, max purchase of 1.
  • 1.01 cents per point

Applicable to all packages:

  • A maximum of 4 sets of points is allowed per membership number across all Hyatt offers.
  • Within ten business days of purchase, the points points will be deposited into the Hyatt Gold Passport account provided at the time of purchase. You can then redeem these points for a future stay (so have your Hyatt # ready when you make your purchase!).

Deal Analysis:

I usually get close to 2 cents per point from my Hyatt Gold Passport points, so purchasing them around 1 cent each is a a total deal in my book.  This isn’t one of those cases where only those who are exceptionally skilled at award bookings can get 2 cents in value per point – it is pretty easy given their award chart that puts Hyatts like the Grand Hyatt Kauai, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, Park Hyatt Toyko, and many, many more at the top tier 22k level.  There are also other good deals at the lower tiers, depending on the going rate of the hotel.

I could give more examples, but I won’t because there are so few packages available that if you aren’t already a Hyatt junkie drooling over these points, I don’t want to add you into the frenzy tomorrow that will likely end in disappointment for many who are at their computers trying to press “buy”.  Though if you have any questions about Hyatt points feel free to ask!

Hyatt has had a pretty stable award chart in recent years, but I would not recommend trying to purchase these points if you don’t have a specific redemption in mind.  Even Hyatt can devalue their chart, and that is a lot of money to spend without knowing how you plan to “cash out”.  I’m running extremely low on Hyatt points and need to replenish a little, so I will be rolling the dice to see if I can snag a package.  Good luck to anyone else who is also going for this one!

These packages go on sale Thursday at 1PM Eastern on the Daily Getaways website.

  1. Think I got ahead of myself with the 10% discount or dropping numbers or something! 😉 Fixed and thanks. Good luck if you go for it!

  2. Seems like a good deal but with less than 200 available it will be hard to get. I counted at least 4 blogs in less than a minute (without trying) that are all hype on this one, good luck.

    • Dan, agree. I have posted on every single deal, so I’m not going to skip posting on the arguably the best deal, but no doubt that there will be far more demand than supply.

  3. Thanks MP…. I was initially discouraged. Within seconds after 1pm ET, all four Hyatt promos were on hold. But I took your advice, didn’t give up, hoping one person didn’t complete the transaction within time – and sure enough, was able to get one of the 24,000 point packages at the 1.06pm mark.

  4. So glad several of you got packages! Michael, I did one post for each deal. This one just had insanely limited quantity…as I said in the post. No biggie, everyone that missed out (myself included) just saved themselves a charge on their credit card. 😉 Always a bright side!

  5. Took a shot just for the hell of it. In the first second the lowest 24,000 points were locked up for at least the first go round. Took 10 minutes for them all to be claimed though so either people are dawdling filling out the credit card info or some people sat on it and timed out or something. Anyway, the first good offer I’ve seen this year honestly.
