Deal: Buy Hyatt Points at 1.85 Cents | INR 1.36 per point through October 31

There are many points purchase offers from Hotel Chains going on all the time. Still, perhaps one of the best promotions is from Hyatt, which is offering you points with a 30% bonus on buying points at the moment and hence is an excellent opportunity to buy Hyatt points cheap right now.

Buy Hyatt Points Cheap, With a 30% Bonus through October 31, 2021.

Through October 31, 2021, World of Hyatt is offering a 30% bonus on points purchase when you buy at least 3,000 points in one transaction.

The promotion allows you to purchase a maximum of 55,000 points (which is the maximum bonus points you can buy in a calendar year), which cost 1.85 USD cents per World of Hyatt point at the top end after including the bonus points.

 Buying Hyatt points can prove to be a good deal at both ends of the spectrum. For properties such as the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa, which goes for over USD 1100+ every night (ex-taxes) or at 30,000 points per night, you can drop the price to about USD 550 with the purchased points.

One of my absolute favourite hotels, the Grand Hyatt Kochi Bolgatty, comes at a bargain price of USD 90 when you buy points to redeem (since it is a Category 1 property). On a typical day, be ready to pay anywhere from INR 8,500 upwards for the property, exclusive of GST.

Since Hyatt has many top-end properties around India and no credit card transfer partners in India, it makes sense to buy World of Hyatt points if you consider staying at a Hyatt hotel, especially with a 25% discount.

  1. Hi, Ajay. Its good deal. You are right. It depend on which hotel you select. Please let me know your experience about smartbuy hotel booking and flight booking. There are many negative reviews about it. How is the change and cancellation process? Any other issues in booking and confirmation of hotel/flight via Smartbuy?

    • Nilesh, there are some issues in buying flights from Smartbuy like prices are inflated sometimes, only cleartrip and yatra as booking options and above all no option of selecting seats while booking. I would suggest buying directly from Airlines app or website specially during covid times as cancellation fees is high and refund gets stuck through these OTA’s. Hope this helps and pls correct if have missed something.

  2. I appreciate hyatt gives an option to redeem points across multiple room categories rather than just base category rooms

  3. The difference in price vs points pay is 15%. That is what most OTA offer in upfront discount & not to forget the reward points and cashback offers running on and off on most credit card nowadays. What am I missing here?

    • @Shivi, points have an important role to play at top of the line hotels and significantly reduce the cost in these cases. By up to 50%. Trust that helps. Also, OTA stays are not counted from a loyalty perspective.

    • I’ve generally not found too much of a difference between ota pricing and that on the website for 4/5 star properties. Booking on points can be significantly cheaper.

      For example: look at the hyatt regency dharamshala resort

      • This difference you see with top properties. Hotels that charge USD1000/2000 per night. You don’t find that much in India but places like Maldives, London, NYC etc where the rates are very high.

        In fact, most of the time I book hotels via points when I’m travelling abroad. It lets me stay in top properties where it’s totally out of budget to stay, thanks to the points. Also, the flexibility is good, you can cancel anytime, use those points at any given time.

  4. Hi Every one,

    Happy new year! Hope you all doing well.

    One question if we book a room through points do we get complimentary breakfast for some one who has just joined world of hyatt programme. I know Mariott doesnt provides breakfast its just room.

    Thanks,

    Barjit Singh

    • Only in Hyatt Place.

      One of which, Hyatt Place Rameshwaram, is not going to be part of Hyatt from 31.01.2021, 23:59 hours.

      S&S

  5. Also, if one registers and stays before 28th feb 2021, they get 15% of points back which gives even more savings.
    Cheers 🙂

  6. i had no idea hyatt kochi was so nice — will remember for next time. we ended up staying at le meridien, also wonderful
