40% bonus Hyatt points sale

Points.com is having a sale on Hyatt points today- May 23, with a 40% bonus for purchases over 10k points. Seems like a good deal unless you MS w/ CCs to get points.

1.7 cents per point at the 40% bonus level. That's probably only good for people who can buy them and use them quickly to save on existing bookings. I wouldn't buy and bank points at that price.

This is second-best for those of us who don't succeed in buying a Hyatt points package from DG on May 8 at the real bargain price of 1.0--1.1 cents per point!

Pardon the stupid question, but how can we find out more info about this deal?

DG stands for Daily Getaways by the U.S. Travel Association.

The Hyatt deal has to be one of the hardest to get - there are a total of 229 packages available.

Do we know for sure the DG deal will allow for the points to be used as you see fit?

From the description: Enjoy three (3) nights in a suite at any participating Category 4 Hyatt® hotel worldwide.

From the terms and conditions: Package includes 72,000 Bonus Points that may be redeemed at participating Category 4 hotels.

It seems odd (impossible?) for the points to be limited if they are indeed just deposited into your account. But the language caused me to pause.

Yes, the headline text says "3 nights in a suite"... but the actual T&C says that you're actually buying 72,000 points.

Thanks for the replies. How do these work? It has an "alert me" sign-up, but I assume most packages are long gone by the time any emails arrive. Do they become available at a certain time each day or is it random? Thanks.

Some of the deals are decent, some are terrible, but the Hyatt points is the only really amazing deal, and they have it every year. I've never been successful in getting one, but some people on FT seem to get in. There is some bug/feature on the website where, once a customer starts buying the item, it is taken out of inventory for some number of minutes, and then if the purchase doesn't go through, it returns to inventory. I'm sure the details are somewhere on FT.

The redemption and T&C sections for the 72,000 points package says you're buying 72,000 points that can be redeemed for three nights in a suite at participating Category 4 hotels. I don't see how the points could be restricted if Hyatt just dumps them into one's WoH account, but the T&Cs are a little weird. If anyone has grabbed one of these in the past and can confirm that the actual usage is at the buyer's discretion, please post. Thanks.
