Hyatt Points + Cash Flash Sale Returns With New List of Discounted Properties
Back in January, we shared a Hyatt Points + Cash flash sale offering hotel nights as cheap as $17 plus 2,500 Hyatt points. Now, the deal is back with a new list of hotels where you can save up to $72 off the cash co-pay of a Points + Cash stay.
If you aren't familiar, Hyatt Points + Cash awards can be a great redemption option. Instead of redeeming a night at the full points cost, you can select a Points + Cash redemption to use half the points while paying a cash co-pay. And, some of these options can be especially good. For example, 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. For reference, TPG values Hyatt points at 1.8 cents per point.
While Points + Cash can already be a good deal, today we're finding even-cheaper cash co-pays for certain Hyatt properties. This unadvertised sale effectively lets you buy Hyatt points for as little as 0.78 cents per point when making a Points + Cash redemption.
For reference, here are the normal Points + Cash booking rates:
|Points + Cash|
|1||5,000||2,500 + $50|
|2||8,000||4,000 + $55|
|3||12,000||6,000 + $75|
|4||15,000||7,500 + $100|
|5||20,000||10,000 + $125|
|6||25,000||12,500 + $150|
|7||30,000||15,000 + $300|
Extreme Hotel Deals — which broke this deal — has compiled the following list of properties currently booking at cheaper rates:
|Hotel Name||Discount Rate||Standard Cash +|
|Hyatt Place Minneapolis/Eden Prairie||$32 + 4,000||$55 + 4,000||$23|
|Hyatt Hyderabad Gachibowli||$33 + 2,500||$50 + 2,500||$17|
|Park Hyatt Hyderabad||$34 + 4,000||$55 + 4,000||$21|
|Hyatt Place Denver Airport||$38 + 4,000||$55 + 4,000||$17|
|Hyatt Place Washington Dc/Us Capitol||$50 + 6,000||$75 + 6,000||$25|
|Hyatt Regency Changbaishan||$50 + 6,000||$75 + 6,000||$25|
|Hyatt Place Santa Cruz||$60 + 7,500||$100 + 7,500||$40|
|Hyatt Regency Sydney||$78 + 10,000||$150 + 10,000||$72|
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.
