If you only pay attention to one Daily Getaway, this is the one. Hyatt Gold Passport has packages of points for sale today. To get in on this deal, you’re going to have to be quick.
In case you’re not familiar, Daily Getaways are daily deals sponsored by the US Travel Association. Some are better than others, so you need to think about whether you can take full advantage of the offer before buying.
For the more popular offers, they will sell out quickly, which means being around right when they go on sale each day at 1:00 pm EDT. Some offers will sell out in hours, some in minutes. It’s also important to be patient. If you click shortly after an offer becomes available and it shows sold out, keep trying. Someone may have an offer in their shopping cart but change their mind or have their computer crash. When that happens, their bad luck or change of heart can be your good fortune.
There’s no 10% discount this year for paying with an AMEX card. However, it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the pricing of most deals, with some being slightly better (and others the same or slightly worse) than last year.
Here are the packages:
These prices are slightly higher than last year but still a screaming good deal. I value Hyatt Gold Passport points at almost 2 cents a piece and the price here is just higher than a penny. Even if values differ, it’s reasonable to see this as at least a 25%-35% discount on Gold Passport points.
The best example I have personally is my stay at Park Hyatt Place Vendome last year. It costs 30,000 points to grab a room at the Park Hyatt Place Vendome. At roughly a penny a point that’s $300 a night. I’ve never seen the property for under $500 a night and it’s frequently in the $1,000 range. Given that Hyatt already announced category changes recently which were pretty mild, it’s pretty safe to assume the redemption values will remain static.
There are a very limited number of packages given that this is likely one of the best offers of all the Daily Getaways. This one will be a bit of a scrum.
