I received a package the other evening welcoming me to Hyatt Diamond, after recently completing their Hyatt Diamond challenge.
Included in this packet was an interesting post card describing how I could use Hyatt Points on anything during my stay. I was intrigued.
You can convert your Hyatt Gold Passport points into cash, to which you can redeem for incidentals during your stay.
- 2,000 points = $10
- 5,000 points = $25
- 10,000 points = $50
- 12,000 points = $75
- 15,000 points = $100
- 20,000 points – $150
- 32,000 points = $250
- 60,000 points = $500
- 120,000 points = $1,000
Want to cover that $100 meal at the hotel restaurant? Sure, but it will cost you 15,000 points.
Let me first say that none of the conversions on this chart are a good value, and you should never redeem Hyatt points for cash during any stay.
Here’s why: A stay at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque will normally run you about $100 (ish) a night, or 5,000 Gold Passport points. In this one example, you can see how just 5,000 points can be used for a night valued at only $100. To redeem on a $100 steak dinner at the hotel, you are spending nearly 3x the amount you would just to redeem a free room.
I’d never encourage anyone to redeem points in this matter, but it might make sense for some, depending on your circumstance and whether you value staying at Hyatt properties.
Have you ever redeemed Hyatt points for cash?
