The sign-up bonus on the Chase Sapphire Preferred can be used to earn some easy Hyatt Points while the 3X to 10X earning rates on the Chase Sapphire Reserve can help you quickly rack up points transferable to Hyatt.

Chase Cash Back Credit Cards

If you own any of the three cards listed above, you'll also be able to transfer points earned with Chase's cash back credit cards directly to World of Hyatt as well.

Chase's cash back credit cards earn Ultimate Rewards Points that can only be redeemed for cash back. But if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Chase Sapphire Preferred, or Ink Business Preferred Credit Card, you'll be able to transfer those points to Chase's airline and hotel partners.

This opens four additional cards you can use to build Hyatt Points through everyday spending and intro bonuses.

Earning the equivalent of 5X Hyatt Points on rotating categories with the Chase Freedom Flexâ„  will make for some fantastic returns on your spend.

The 1.5X earnings of the Chase Freedom Unlimited® or Chase Ink Business Unlimited® Credit Card on all non-category spend is also a game changer as you'll earn more than the standard 1X when you use Hyatt's own co-branded credit card.

Buying Hyatt Points

If you're only in need of a few points, you can also buy Hyatt Points. Hyatt Points cost 2.4 cents at the standard rate which is higher than what they're worth, but it could be worth it if you just need to top off your account.

Also, Hyatt Points are on sale several times per year. They've been discounted for as low as 1.83 cents which is great considering you can typically redeem them for more than 2 cents each without too much effort.

Redeem Hyatt Points For Free Nights

The best value you can obtain from Hyatt Points will be redeeming them for free nights at Hyatt brand hotels. This redemptions which will give you around 1.8 cents in value on average.

You can book standard free nights on all points or a combination of points plus cash. You can also use your points to book stays at Hyatt's 8 all-inclusive resorts.

Standard Hyatt Redemptions

You can easily get a minimum of 1.8 cents in value from your Hyatt Points without any effort. In fact, you'll typically find redemptions that go over 2 cents and sometimes 3 cents if you really take the time to do some research.

Let's look at a few Hyatt hotels in popular cities across the world. Do note that the cash prices do not reflect taxes/fees, so the point values will be slightly higher than what's listed. These are just estimates based on the base price of the hotel per night. Here's the cost of the first few hotels that pop up when searching the Atlanta, Georgia area.

These hotels are offering exceptional value that are way above the 1.8 cent per point average. Here's the value:

  • Hyatt Regency - 2.25 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Palace Atlanta/Downtown - 2.6 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Place Atlanta/Centennial Park - 3.1 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt House Atlanta/Downtown - 2.47 Cents Per Point

Let's scroll across the U.S. to properties in Hawaii.

These hotels don't offer as much value as the hotels in the Atlanta example, but there's still some solid options:

  • Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort - 2.16 Cents Per Point
  • Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa - 2 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa - 1.1 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa - 1.5 Cents Per Point

Let's step across the pond over to Hyatt locations in Tokyo, Japan.

These properties are quite pricey, but they can obtain some great value. Here's the breakdown in value:

  • Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills - 2.37 Cents Per Point
  • Grand Hyatt Tokyo - 2.22 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Regency Tokyo - 2.85 Cents Per Point
  • Park Hyatt Tokyo - 3.2 Cents Per Point

Finding great value in Hyatt Points takes very little effort. And it's not just confined to expensive Hyatt hotels that cost hundreds per night.

Here's a list of hotels that pops up when I search Southfield, Michigan.

All of these hotels offer great redemption value:

  • Hyatt Place Detroit / Royal Oak - 2 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Place Detroit / Livonia - 2.2 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Place Detroit / Auburn Hills - 2.28 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Place Detroit / Novi - 3.7 Cents Per Point

Regency/Grand Club Rooms

For a few additional Hyatt Points, you can book a Club room when staying at the Hyatt Regency or Grand Hyatt brands.

Club rooms give you access to the lounge which will typically include continental breakfast, evening hors d'oeuvres, and private-entry lounge access with dedicated concierge. Whether it's worth the extra points or not will depend on if you plan on utilizing what the club offers.

In terms of point value, you'll still receive exceptional value when using your points towards Club rooms.

Do note that Hyatt Globalist Members receive complimentary club access to the Hyatt brand hotels that have them.

Standard & Premium Suites

Some Hyatt hotels allow you to book standard and premium suites using Hyatt Points. Availability for these kind of rooms can be really hard to find, but you can get lucky from time to time and spot one.

Depending on the resort, these will cost you a nice amount of Hyatt Points, but you'll still receive exceptional value like all other redemptions.

Hyatt Points + Cash

Along with booking your stays using all points, you can also book Hyatt stays with a combination of Hyatt Points + Cash. If available, this option is presented after you have selected your hotel.

hyatt points plus cash
You can select Hyatt Points + Cash to use a mixture of points and cash to pay for your stay.

Hyatt Points plus cash bookings can give you just as much value as booking in all points. For example, the Hyatt Place Atlanta Airport-North hotel for a weekend day in November gives me three per-night options when booking a King Bed room:

  • 5,000 Points
  • 2,500 Points + $70 Avg/Night
  • $133 Avg/Night

Diving deeper into this booking, the cash portion of the Hyatt Points plus cash option comes out to being $85.79 after taxes and fees are added. The cost of the entire room itself comes out to being $158.51.

hyatt place atlanta airport north

So when booking your stay, you'll get the following Hyatt Point values when using points:

  • Paying All Hyatt Points: 3.1 Cents Per Point
  • Hyatt Points + Cash: 2.9 Cents Per Point

If I were to book this stay, I'd end up getting a great value regardless of whether I booked using all points or booked using a combination of Hyatt Points and cash.

Hyatt has a Points + Cash award chart that it uses based on hotel category. If you don't have enough Hyatt Points to cover a stay on all points, the Points + Cash option is a great alternative.

hyatt points plus cash
Hyatt Points + Cash Award Chart

Club Upgrade With Points

You can use a combination of Hyatt Points and cash to pay for an upgrade to a Club room. The cash price will usually be the standard price of the room plus a certain amount of points based on the category of the hotel to upgrade to Club access.

grand hyatt atlanta club access points cash
I can pay 3,000 Points on top of the standard room rate to upgrade to Club access at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta.

This can be a good alternative to paying cash if you want to upgrade using points. Just be sure to note the cash difference between paying cash for the Club access and paying Hyatt Points plus cash.

The difference in price comes out to be $50 for the Grand Hyatt Atlanta. Paying 3,000 Hyatt Points for a $50 upgrade gives me a Hyatt Point value of 1.6 cents which is lower than the average.

Personally, I would pay the $50 in this instance as I know I can get a lot more value out of 3,000 Hyatt Points.

Suites with Points + Cash

Standard and Premium Suites can also be booked with a mix of Hyatt Points and cash. As with booking suites using all points, availability for these can be a slightly hard to find, but they're out there. Both standard suites and premium suites have their own award charts as well.

Hyatt All-Inclusive Resorts

Hyatt has a total of 8 all-inclusive resorts that you can book with your Hyatt Points. These resorts fall under the Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara brands in which Ziva is for all ages while Zilara is adults only. Here are the 8 all-inclusive properties:

  • Hyatt Zilara Cancun
  • Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana
  • Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall
  • Hyatt Ziva Cancun
  • Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana
  • Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall
  • Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta
  • Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos

These hotels can be book using the standard search via hyatt.com. While testing some dates for these properties, I found most redemptions to hover around 1.3 to 1.5 cents per point.

I also found some redemptions which offered close to 1 cent in value and close to 2 cent in value. The value you get will depend on the time of year you go, the days your book, and various other details.

hyatt all inclusive resorts
Book award nights starting as low as 20,000 points per night.

If you plan on booking a stay at these properties, be sure to run the numbers to make sure you're getting some solid value out of your points.

Remember that these resorts are all-inclusive, so while you will typically get a lower value, the fact that you're receiving complimentary food, beverage, and activities can easily make up for that.

Other Hyatt Points Redemptions

Outside of booking at Hyatt's standard brands, you can also use your points to book stays at:

  • MGM Resorts International
  • Miraval Resorts
  • Small Luxury Hotels of the World (known as SLH)

Hyatt Points can also be redeemed for purchases made at Hyatt properties, spa credits, rental cars and more.

MGM Resorts International

MGM Resorts International hotels can be booked using Hyatt Points which offers a value of around 1.3 to 1.5 cents per point. You can book these resorts using the standard search on hyatt.com. All of these resorts are located in Las Vegas, so just searching the city should easily bring up your available options.

mgm hotel bookings

You can use your Hyatt Points to book a stay at the following MGM Resorts International Hotels:

  • Bellagio
  • Aria
  • Vdara
  • MGM Grand Las Vegas
  • The Signature At MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay
  • Delano
  • Mirage
  • Park MGM
  • New York New York
  • Luxor
  • Excalibur

If you have elite status with Hyatt, you can status match your Hyatt Tier to your MGM M Life Rewards Tier for access to some great benefits.

Match your Hyatt Elite Status to MGM M Life Rewards.

Miraval Resorts

Hyatt Points can be used to stay at Miraval Resorts & Spas. Miraval is a luxury chain that focuses on your wellbeing, renewing your spirit and making you feel your best.

Booking your award nights through Hyatt will include a $175 resort credit per person, gourmet cuisine, freshly prepared snacks and beverages, and complimentary wellness activities, fitness classes, lectures, and more.

miraval resorts photo

The pricing point for stays at Miraval locations depend on how many people are with you and the season you go. When I searched cash prices across a few date ranges, I got roughly $400-$600 per night for a single person occupancy and $600-$820 per night for a double (before taxes/fees).

miraval resorts booking two people august

Booking a stay at a Miraval Resort using Hyatt Points will cost you 45,000 Points per night for a single occupancy. You can also dish out 75,000 points for a suite or 105,000 points for a premium suite, still single occupancy.

If you want to take someone along, it will cost you 20,000 points per night for the second person.

With the cost of the resort having such a large range and the pricing depending on many factors, it's hard to drop an exact average. I would say that you can get roughly around 1 cent per point on average during the popular months, while the summer months may offer higher value (since Arizona's heat can be brutal).

Even with that being the case, every booking includes meals, snacks, and drinks (non-alcoholic), so while you may get lower value, you'll want to factor the savings you'll get from these things being included.

Miraval Points + Cash

Like standard Hyatt hotels, you can book Miraval Resorts using Hyatt Points plus cash. This is a good way to use Hyatt Points to shave down some of the cash cost of the stay. The exact value you'll get out of Hyatt Points + Cash bookings for Miraval depends since you'll need to book these over the phone by calling Miraval.

miraval standard hyatt points miraval suite hyatt points miraval premium suite hyatt points

Small Luxury Hotels of the World

You can use your Hyatt Points to book stays at Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties. SLH properties will appear in the search results as normal when booking hotels via hyatt.com.

Redeeming your Hyatt Points for SLH hotels will heavily vary. I found redemptions as high as 1.9 cents in value and redemptions as low as 0.5 cents in value.

If you're trying to stay at a SLH hotel, I recommend using the Small Luxury Hotels website to see what hotels are available in different areas/regions and then using Hyatt's website to book them.

Hyatt Dining, Spa, and Room Charges

You can apply your Hyatt Points to spa and dining charges at Hyatt's around the world regardless of whether or not you're spending the night at a Hyatt. You can also apply your points to in-room movies, parking, transportation, and more when you're staying as a guest.

hyatt hotel charges redemptions

Redeeming your Hyatt Points to cover these type of charges will give your points a minimum value of 1 cent per point for a $10 credit up to 1.53 cents per point for a $1,000 credit. You can use your points during checkout to cover these types of charges.

Meetings & Events

If you plan on having a meeting or event at Hyatt, you can use your Hyatt Points to shave down the cost with a Meeting Credit. Meeting credits will give your Hyatt Points a value of 1.3 cents per point. You can get anywhere from a $200 Meeting Credit for 15,000 Hyatt Points up to a $1,000 Meeting Credit for 75,000 Points.

hyatt meeting credits

Remember that hosting paid meetings/events with Hyatt will earn you Hyatt Points and credit towards Hyatt Elite Status.

FIND Experiences

Hyatt Points can be used to pay for various experiences with Hyatt's FIND Experiences program. Experiences offered by this program features a range of categories such as culinary, fitness, tours, and more.

hyatt find expriences

The value you get of this program will depend on the experience itself. Most of the experiences will have a cash value associated with them, but some are indeed priceless. So you'll have to figure out if an experience is worth your Hyatt Points or not.

When paying cash for experiences via Hyatt's FIND Experience, you'll earn a whopping 10 Hyatt base points per $1 spent making this a great way to push yourself towards Hyatt Elite Status & Hyatt Milestone Rewards.

Lindblad Expeditions

Hyatt Points can be redeemed for expeditions with Lindblad Expeditions. These expeditions take you to various exciting and remote places such as Antarctica, Galápagos, the Arctic, and various (non-freezing) exotic destinations. Booking these expeditions will also give you a $250 USD onboard credit per reservation.

hyatt lindblad baja escape

These expeditions can be anywhere from a couple of days like your typical cruise up to a month or longer. Cash prices for these expeditions hover in the thousands of dollars and some in the tens of thousands of dollars. In terms of redeeming Hyatt Points, you'll looking at redemptions ranging from 170,000 up to 7 million Hyatt Points (yeah you read that right).

hyatt lindblad antarctica south georgia falklands

Redeeming your Hyatt Points for Lindblad Expeditions will give your points a value of 1.6 cents each. If you're looking for ways to build up your Hyatt Points to these type of levels (it will still take awhile), you'll want to consider the Chase Ultimate Rewards Program since you can transfer your earned points directly to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.

When booking Lindblad Expeditions with cash, you'll earn your standard 5 base points per $1 spent along with any elite tier bonuses. Nights also count towards elite status which is great considering the length of some of their expeditions.

Exhale Spa

Hyatt Points can be redeemed for boutique fitness classes and spa therapies with Exhale. You'll get 1.5 cents per point when redeeming your Hyatt Points for a fitness class. The value you get when redeeming for a 60-minute massage or facial will vary as the prices range depending on the type of massage/facial and your location. The estimate range of value I got was from 1.3 cents to 1.9 cents in value which is not bad at all.

exhale spa hyatt

If you plan on earning or redeeming points with Exhale, I recommend that you link your World of Hyatt and Exhale accounts to make things easier. Remember that you will earn 10 Base Points for every $1 spent at Exhale locations and for Exhale On Demand subscriptions purchased on exhalespa.com.

Avis Rental Cars

Lastly, you can redeem your Hyatt Points for rentals with Avis. For 6,000 Hyatt Points per day, you can book an intermediate-size car. 6,000 Hyatt Points have an average value of $108.

Typically, rentals at Avis will not reach such a high price on a per-day rate unless you're booking during an extreme peak time.

Based on rental experience with Avis as well as looking through their website, intermediate vehicles hover around $50-$70 on average so you'll get close to 1 cent in value for this redemption which is pretty low.

Earn Points: Earn Hyatt Points booking through avis.com and use Avis World Discount (AWD) number K817700.

Transfer Hyatt Points To Partners

Hyatt Points can be transferred to 25 airline partners including American Airlines, Delta Airlines, and United Airlines.

The transfer ratio for most of Hyatt's partners is 2.5:1 meaning that every 2,500 Hyatt Points you transfer will earn you 1,000 airline miles which isn't too bad.

On top of that, Hyatt gives you an additional 5,000 airline miles for every 50,000 Hyatt Points you transfer. So transferring 50,000 Hyatt Points will give you a total of 25,000 airline miles which brings the ratio down to 2:1.

You can get the list of partners as well as calculate the transfer of Hyatt Points to airline miles using the Hyatt Transfer Partner calculator.
