Now through December 10th you can get a 30% bonus when you purchase 5,000 or more Hyatt Gold Passport points. So you can buy 5000 points for $120 (plus fees) and get a bonus of 1500 points. Or buy 55,000 points and get a bonus of 16,500 points for $1320. This brings the cost per point to 1.8 cents each. What is a Hyatt point worth? Well, it all depends on who you ask. Lucky (of One Mile at a Time) values them at 1.4 cents while Brian (The Points Guy) values them at 1.8 cents each.
I say it all depends on your needs. Do you need just a few points to top off your account so you can get that dream award? Then by all means jump at this offer. But remember that you can convert Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt points and it’s very easy to manufacture UR points through credit card spend. (Of course if you have the Chase Hyatt Visa you can generate points that way too!)
I’ve got a nice stash of UR points so won’t be taking advantage of this offer but it may be perfect timing for you.
