Hyatt Points + Cash award redemptions are a great way to mix points and money on a hotel booking. But another way to look at them is that you're "buying" Hyatt points when you redeem for a Points + Cash award — you're substituting a prescribed amount of cash in lieu of booking the award entirely with points using the standard award rate, thereby paying money to spend fewer points. There's a sweet spot at category 2-6 hotels where you can effectively "buy" Hyatt points this way for 1.2 to 1.4 cents each when choosing the Points + Cash option, which is a good deal since TPG values Hyatt points at 1.8 cents per point.

However, today we're finding a much cheaper cash co-pay being quoted for certain Hyatt properties. This unadvertised sale effectively lets you buy Hyatt points for as little as 0.68 cents per point when making a Points + Cash redemption.

First, here are the normal Points + Cash booking rates:

CategoryAward Rate per NightPoints + Cash per Night
15,0002,500 + $50
28,0004,000 + $55

Extreme Hotel Deals — which broke this deal — has compiled the following list of properties currently booking at cheaper rates:

Park Hyatt Chicago$100 + 12,500$32525,000$150 + 12,500

Since this is an unadvertised sale, there may be even more hotels that have discounted Points + Cash rates beyond the ones above. However, keep in mind that unlike regular Hyatt point awards — which are supposed to be available any time a base-level room is available — Points + Cash award inventory is at the discretion of the hotel, so you may not always find a Points + Cash room during a search.

But if you have an upcoming potential Hyatt stay that you're considering booking with points, make sure to check the Points + Cash option and look closely at the cash co-pay amount to see if it might be lower than usual, turning a good deal into a great deal.
