Two months ago Hyatt announced that their award chart would change on January 7, 2014.
But sometimes things can creep up on you and times slips away. But don’t let that happen today.
Today is the last day you can book your Hyatt award nights under Hyatt’s current award chart.
Waiting 24 hours can cost you up to 45 percent more points.
So a night in a standard room at the Park Hyatt Sydney will increase from 22,000 points to 33,000 points. A night in suite jumps to 48,000 points.
I stayed at the Park Hyatt Sydney in May using my two free nights from the Hyatt credit card. Although I could have redeemed 22,000 points a night.
Standard rooms in Category 1-4 Hyatt hotels will remain the same, but Category 5-6 increases and there’s a new Category 7.
Overall, it’s not that bad of a change. The point cost per night is still very reasonable. It could have been worse.
And you can earn Hyatt points easily.
I’ve been busy booking future Hyatt award stays for hotels that are going up a category or increasing in points.
Did you remember to lock in your future Hyatt award stays at the old rates?
