Hyatt has launched a great promotion where you can get up to 25% off award nights or Points + Cash bookings at some of its top properties around the world.

There are two versions of the promotion, and we’ll first go through the details of the deal that offers discounts on normal award stays.

If you redeem points for any of the 14 included properties, you can earn up to 25% of your points back for stays made through Nov. 30.

This includes top-tier redemptions like the Park Hyatt Milan that normally goes for 30,000 points a night, where you’ll earn 5,000 of your points back after your stay is completed. Also included is the Andaz Mayakoba and Park Hyatt Mallorca, both resorts that have received high marks from TPG reviewers.

Hyatt points are TPG’s most valuable hotel loyalty currency and we value 5,000 points at $85. So this is a solid discount, especially considering that they’re available at some of its flagship hotels.

Here’s a list of all the properties where you can receive points back, and how many points you’ll receive for each night you stay.

Note that you’ll need to have the full amount of points in your account when booking, and you’ll receive the bonus points back into your account 6 to 8 weeks after you’ve completed your stay.

The second part of the promotion Hyatt is running offers a 25% discount on Points + Cash bookings for the stays made before Oct. 31. Discounts are available at top-tier and incredibly popular resorts, including the Andaz Costa Rica Papagayo, Park Hyatt St. Kitts and even the Park Hyatt Maldives. Unfortunately, the discount only applies to the cash part of the booking, so you wont be saving any extra points on these stays.

Here’s what you can expect to pay at each resort with the discount (discounts will automatically be incorporated during booking):

Property Discounted Cash + Points Rate
Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino 12,500 points + $98
Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo 10,000 points + $104
Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa 15,000 points + $186
Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort 12,500 points + $75
Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya 12,500 points + $71
Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour 15,000 points + $126
Park Hyatt Mallorca
12,500 points + €129
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar 10,000 points + $85

TPG value’s Hyatt points so highly because you can get some killer redemptions for a very minimal amount of points compared to other loyalty programs. Plus, you shouldn’t be paying any resort fees on award redemptions (Points + Cash bookings are subject to resort fees). Still, it’s worth comparing cash rates to points redemptions if you are going to take advantage of this sale; it could still make sense to forgo booking with points if cash rates are very low.

If you don’t have any Hyatt points but still want to take advantage of the sale, you can transfer them instantly from Chase Ultimate Rewards to Hyatt at 1:1 ratio. Cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and Chase Sapphire Reserve earn Ultimate Rewards points.

And if you want to stock up on Hyatt points for future deals, The World Of Hyatt Credit Card is currently offering a two-tiered welcome bonus after spending. You’ll earn 25,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months from account opening and 25,000 more bonus points after spending $6,000 total in the first 6 months of account opening for a total of 50,000 points (on top of what you earn from the normal spend).
