I noticed that Hyatt has a one-year account inactivity = point expiration.
My travelling has been way down and I'll probably not stay at a Hyatt before the end of March, which is my one-year point. Is there an easy (cheap) way to have some activity to prevent point expiration?

From what I understand, I don't think Hyatt enforces the 1 year expiration.
If you want to be on the safe side, you could either do a mattress run to an inexpensive Hyatt Place or SS, or you could rent a car and send the points to Hyatt. Avis is a partner & I do this all the time.

Avis-to-Hyatt is notoriously inefficient. Many FTers incl. me always have to wait 2 months & complain to CS several times to get the darn 300 points :td:!
As Mary2e said, Hyatt does not enforce expiration ^, unlike some other hotel chains! One FTer reported finding his points intact after 5--7 years of inactivity!
U can always transfer GP points to a friend ;) or have a friend transfer 2U! Exiled, when U have made 90 posts to FT, U will be eligible for our restricted forum The Coupon Connection (tCC), where U can find such an FTer friend.
BTW, if I may be so bold, how many GP points do U have? ;) U can PM Mary2e & me if U don't want to post publicly.
