Actually already saw the new pricing i think a while back. Booked the PH Mallorca on PC for September a few weeks ago and at the time saw the price was half points and 165 Euro on a regular rate of 549. Thought it was strange and fast forward a few weeks and the announcement and i noticed the price was basically 70 percent off the room rate for the cash portion.

Oh, wow, I stand corrected. That is a great deal.

25k pts for a $549 rate is good but not spectacular.

But 12.5k to save $384 is a great deal. Of course you would not pay an extra 12.5k to save an extra $165 (the pts are worth at least $250)

OP mentioned there were reports of larger than 50% off discounts which is why I had asked people to post example if they see them.

I booked P&C for June at PH Mallorca about four months ago at 12.5k points and 120. I thought it was just a mistake as well. I dont remember what the standard rate was at the time but now its 550 so thats around 80%.

Im curious with the recent category changes if Ill get the extra 2500 points back and can keep the same cash rate.

Hyatt House Austin/Dowtown currently charges 6000points +25% of the room rate.
(There's a reason for this discounted pricing - the location is terrible compared to the HR or HP - it's a block from a homeless shelter. I'm holding a reservation for April but probably won't keep it.)

I'm in the exact same situation with PH Mallorca. My guess is on march 23rd we'll get 2500/night refunded. I thought it was a mistake rate too
