Hyatt buy points (40% off)?

In the just published buy points promo (20% discount), my cost per point was 1.53 cents. Either Hyatt lowered the base price from 2.4 cents, or someone coded 20% off of 20% off.
demue, lautaro, Zorak and 4 others like this.

Yeah, somebody made a mistake. It will presumably be fixed fairly soon so jump on it quickly.

Don't forget cashback for a little bit extra...

Nobody is awake to receive my desperate requests to gift me points. I would buy hundreds of thousands at this price if I could.

Oops I made a mistake too. 20% off of 20% off is a 36% discount.

Why? The points purchases for the various travel companies are done by points.com.

And the points combining form seems to be broken.

I use Topcashback (US version). Presumably there are others.

Happy to send you a referral link if you need one.
