Buy World of Hyatt Points with a 20% Discount

World of Hyatt is a great alternative hotel loyalty program to Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton Honors.

Hyatt has recently announced the latest promotion on purchased points, which could be a valuable way for members to top up their points balances and book hotel stays.

Buy World of Hyatt Points with a 20% Discount

World of Hyatt is offering a promotion on points purchases until April 9, 2024, during which you’ll get a 20% discount upon buying at least 3,000 points.

Normally, Hyatt charges 2.4 cents per point (USD) to buy points. With this 20% discount, the rate is reduced to an effective cost of 1.92 cents per point (USD).

How many World of Hyatt points can you buy?

Purchased points will appear in your account within 48 hours.

Which credit card should you use to buy World of Hyatt points?

Instead, you can use any card with a high base earning rate, or one where you’re working on meeting the minimum spend requirement.

In particular, any US credit card will do. That’s because you’ll be charged Canadian sales tax if your billing address is in Canada.
