Today’s Daily Getaway deals bring you packages of Hyatt points at a really good rate. You will see many posts about this deal on various blogs because the deal is pretty good – but just be aware this is one where the quantities are VERY limited. If you are new to the Daily Getaways, they are daily deals for five weeks on discounted hotel stays, discounted points purchases, car rental deals, and more. The travel packages are provided by U.S. Travel Association, in cooperation with participating travel operators of the U.S. Travel Association and advertising support provided by American Express. To get an additional 10% off savings you must pay with any American Express card. Daily Getaways are only open to those who are US residents ages 18 and up (though some packages are for 21+ or even 25+). Here is a link to tips for successfully purchasing these limited quantity deals.
24,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points – $260 ($234 with 10% Amex discount).

Applicable to all packages:
- A maximum of 4 sets of points is allowed per membership number across all Hyatt offers.
- Within ten business days of purchase, the points points will be deposited into the Hyatt Gold Passport account provided at the time of purchase. You can then redeem these points for a future stay (so have your Hyatt # ready when you make your purchase!).
I usually get close to 2 cents per point from my Hyatt Gold Passport points, so purchasing them around 1 cent each is a a total deal in my book. This isn’t one of those cases where only those who are exceptionally skilled at award bookings can get 2 cents in value per point – it is pretty easy given their award chart that puts Hyatts like the Grand Hyatt Kauai, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, Park Hyatt Toyko, and many, many more at the top tier 22k level. There are also other good deals at the lower tiers, depending on the going rate of the hotel.
I could give more examples, but I won’t because there are so few packages available that if you aren’t already a Hyatt junkie drooling over these points, I don’t want to add you into the frenzy tomorrow that will likely end in disappointment for many who are at their computers trying to press “buy”. Though if you have any questions about Hyatt points feel free to ask!
Hyatt has had a pretty stable award chart in recent years, but I would not recommend trying to purchase these points if you don’t have a specific redemption in mind. Even Hyatt can devalue their chart, and that is a lot of money to spend without knowing how you plan to “cash out”. I’m running extremely low on Hyatt points and need to replenish a little, so I will be rolling the dice to see if I can snag a package. Good luck to anyone else who is also going for this one!
These packages go on sale Thursday at 1PM Eastern on the Daily Getaways website.
