Back on April 5 I posted about Hyatt’s participation in this year’s Discover America promotion, so consider this a reminder. Tomorrow, April 15, Hyatt points will be available for about one cent each starting at 12PM eastern time.
Keep in mind that you get a 10% discount if you use an American Express credit card, so be sure to have that ready when the clock strikes noon. There are a total of 165 packages, ranging from 24,000 to 69,000 Gold Passport points to be deposited in your account.
At the very least, the cheapest package is for 24,000 Gold Passport points, which will cost you $225 if paying with an American Express card. To put that into perspective, Hyatt’s category 6 hotels (their top hotels, including even the best Park Hyatts) cost 22,000 points per night, so your $225 purchase is enough for a free night AND you would have 2,000 points left over.
To purchase the packages tomorrow, just follow the link for the package you’re most interested in. Per Loyalty Traveler, here are the prices, number of points, quantities, and links to follow tomorrow:
- $250 for 24,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points (100 items); American Express price = $225.00
- $333 for 30,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points (35 items); American Express price = $299.70
- $415 for 36,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points (15 items); American Express price = $373.50
- $778 for 69,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points (15 items) = American Express price = $700.20
Now, as a frequent Hyatt guest, you’d think it’s a total no brainer to go with the 69,000 point package (or even attempt to buy multiple packages), but I haven’t decided yet. What are y’all aiming for?
