The really good value has been mostly sucked out of this, but I still like the $50 Alamo certificates for $25, especially since it's trivially easy at times to stack ~$20 of WN WGA fare value on top of an Alamo rental.

They sure do move around the starting date on this one. It's smart for them to do it well before summer, but they should try to avoid vacation times. This time, they're going to run into Easter vacations.

What number level are the Hyatt awards?

I don't understand what category these awards are referring to; as Hyatt uses cat. 1-7 and these are not terms I used to at Hyatt?


Friday, April 10: Hyatt Hotels

◾Two nights in a Hyatt Premium Hotel worldwide for $260 (95 available)
◾Two nights in a Hyatt Elite Hotel worldwide for $330 (35 available)
◾Two nights in a Hyatt Top Hotel worldwide for $415 (15 available)
◾Three nights in a Hyatt Elite Hotel suite worldwide for $775 (15 available)

The lack of Amex here is just not good.

Maybe they blew their wad on Small Biz Sat.

If you go into the details you can see how these really work:

24,000 / 30,000 / 40,000 / 72,000 points, in the same order you posted above.

They just give you the points into your account - not per-night vouchers or anything.

Also: These will likely be the most competitive of the offers.

"Hi, can you help me compete with you for a very limited resource? In the spirit of FT where people help people, except it's probably a case of only one of us wins?"

I don't foresee this ending well... thank goodness Alamo certificates don't sell out.

Three years ago I wanted/needed lots of Hyatt points, so I had several friends and family members trying to get them for me, as well as trying myself.

I was the only one who succeeded. All I did was keep refreshing with the F5 key starting at 12:59:30 and eventually the purchase link opened and I got it.

I was going for the highest-point package too, which had the fewest available.

Probably having a high-speed connection and a computer that isn't gummed up with other open programs helps too.
