I’ve only written once about American Express’ Daily Getaways so far this year, until Hyatt got involved. It’s probably not worth mentioning that I’m a Hyatt man. Today’s American Express Daily Getaway deals let you purchase Hyatt points at a discount! Gimme some Hyatt points.
The first of four Hyatt deals to choose from is 24,000 Gold Passport points for $260.
There will be 100 of these deals available, and I imagine there’s going to be some competition. I can definitely get $260 value out of 24,000 Gold Passport points. A stay at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris is easily over $800 or 22,000 points, so that’s a lot of savings.
The next Hyatt Getaway deal is 30,000 Gold Passport Points for $330. There are only 35 of these deals available. 30,000 Gold Passport points is enough for 2 stays at the Andaz W Hollywood, which is a category 4 Hyatt property.
The third Hyatt Getaway deal is for 36,000 Gold Passport Points for $415. And there are only 15 deals available. Starting to see a trend here. 36,000 Gold Passport points is good for 2 nights at a category 5 hotel like the Andaz San Diego, Park Hyatt Istanbul, Andaz Liverpool, or Park Hyatt Dubai.
The final Hyatt offer is for 69,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points for $775. And there are only 15 deals available, so you will have to be quick to snag you one. You can do a lot of things with 69,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points. Category 6 properties are 22,000 a night, so that’s 3 nights at the Park Hyatt Maldives, Park Hyatt Sydney, or Andaz 5th Avenue. Tremendous value.
These deals are definitely good offers if you can spare the $$$ for points. It would be incredibly easy to get some serious value from each deal, it just depends on how deep your pockets are, or if you even need the points.
I have a healthy balance of Hyatt Gold Passport points, since they’re my hotel chain of choice and I’m a Diamond member (trying to keep it that way). Also, it’s easy to top off a Hyatt account if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, Ink Bold® Business Card, or Ink Plus® Business Card because Hyatt is a transfer partner of Ultimate Rewards. Duh.
The Chase Hyatt Visa is also worth having since you get two free certificates and Platinum status.
I’ll probably take advantage of the first deal, just because it’s a pretty solid deal, and one of the cheaper options. Plus, Jordan really loves Andaz properties (me too), so I need to keep the Hyatt points rolling in. And I just burned a lot of Ultimate Rewards points.
Don’t forget that the deals go on live at 1p, ET, and you will get 10% off if you use an American Express card. Everyone has one of those, right?
