Earlier in the week, SPG participated in a promotion to support the US travel industry by offering Starwood points for approximately 1.45 cents each. That’s an incredible bargain that I took full advantage of.
Well, this coming Tuesday, May 11, at 10AM eastern, Hyatt has an equally amazing offer for Hyatt points for about one cent each, though their quantities are more limited. Here’s the breakdown:
* (100) 24,000 Gold Passport points for $225
* (35) 30,000 GP points for $300
* (15) 36,000 GP points for $375
* (15) 69,000 GP points for $700
Only one purchase can be made per person and this promotion is available to US residents only.
Now here’s the shocking news — I won’t be taking advantage of this promotion. Why? Because Hyatt is too generous otherwise! I can earn points for cheaper than that by mattress running during Hyatt’s Big Welcome Back promotion. Don’t get me wrong, this is an outrageously good deal. Using this promotion, you can get a top Hyatt property for around $180/night, which is otherwise unheard of, but Hyatt has just been too generous lately!
