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:

Category Award Rate
per Night
Points + Cash
per Night
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 +
Points Rate
Cash
Savings
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.
