Today’s Daily Getaways limited time offer is Hyatt points at a discounted rate. The deal goes on sale today at 12pm EST April 15, 2011. These discounted travel offers are limited and will sell out fast (as quick as a few minutes). I posted last week about all the other travel deals American Express is giving away over the 5 week period. Additionally if you use ANY American Express credit card to purchase any of the deals, you will receive 10% off.

There are four different options for purchase, which can then be redeemed at Hyatt Hotels worldwide (pending award night availability). You are restricted to only purchasing 1 package per deal, but can purchase more than one deal.

  • 24,000 Gold Passport points for $250 (purchase price of 1 cent/point)
  • 30,000 Gold Passportpoints for $333 (purchase price of 1.1 cents/point)
  • 36,000 Gold Passport points for $415 (purchase price of 1.1 cents/point)
  • 69,000 Gold Passport points for $778 (purchase price of 1.1 cents/point)

Currently purchasing Hyatt points cost 2.4 cents/point, with a cap of 40,000 points a year, so this deal is less than half the cost! To redeem points at a top-notch hotel will run you 22,000 points (cat 6). For example, a room at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris will cost at least $900/night – however, you can purchase 24,000 points at $250, or a higher point package if staying multiple nights. Another example, is the Park Hyatt Buenos Aries (cat 5 – 18,000 points/night) cost about $500/night, but can purchase points for much less. Remember – when using points you cannot earn points or receive nights/stays towards status.

UPDATE: These points are no longer on sale. These points sold in less than 20 seconds! Congrats to everyone who was able to get their hands on them — unfortunately I did not.
