Last Day to Purchase Hyatt Points at 40% Off

As a reminder, today is the last day to purchase Hyatt Gold Passport points at a 40% discount.  This could be a fairly lucrative offer if you also hold the Chase Hyatt Visa card.

You can buy up to 55,000 points (the maximum you can purchase in a calendar year) which will give you a bonus of 22,000 points for a total of 77,000.  Out of pocket cost will be $1,320.  That brings the cost down to 1.71 cents per point.

Hyatt is currently running a 10% off sale on award redemptions for those that hold the Chase Hyatt Visa card.

Here's a real life example.  Lets say you had a balance of 0 HGP points but had the Chase card.  You could purchase the 77,000 points for $1,320.  Then use the points for three nights at the Park Hyatt Maldives.  That will set you back 75,000 points but you'll be credited back 7,500 to your Hyatt Gold Passport account leaving you with 9,500 points.

Effectively, you'd be paying $1,320 for three nights at a hotel that generally sells for $700++ per night.  You'd end up with 9,500 points back in your account which I value around $190.  Deduce that from the total cost and you're looking at $1,130 fore three night in paradise.  Or around $377/night.

If you're short on points or looking to book a big vacation at a Hyatt property, it's worth taking a look at this combination of promotions.
