Hot off the World of Hyatt presses, another new program has just been announced giving us new ways to earn and redeem Hyatt Points! Do you need some inspiration for finding your next travel destination or experience? World of Hyatt members can now book one-of-a-kind Travel-worthy Experiences through IfOnly. These Travel-worthy Experiences, located across several destinations in the U.S. and Europe, is another step in Hyatt’s strategy to engage with high-end travelers.
World of Hyatt sure is branching out lately. First they created the Try the World series of gift boxes. That’s a work in progress! Now they are luring us away from Airbnb / VRBO / Homeaway type stays with a new program called Oasis. According to this announcement, you’d be staying in a home yet receiving the amenities of a hotel-like stay. So far they’re rolling Oasis out in 22 cities around the world. We’ll also be able to earn Hyatt points and redeem them for stays.
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I have big plans this Columbus Day Weekend. I used a Hyatt Free Night Certificate and 30,000 Hyatt points to stay 3 nights at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa on Del Monte Golf Course (15,000 Hyatt points / night or ~$200 / night). I am going with my girlfriend on a relaxing weekend trip. Monterey / Carmel holds a very special spot in my heart because my family and relatives used to drive up to Monterey from Southern California every year for Thanksgiving week. Some of my favorite childhood memories happened in Monterey / Carmel, so I am very excited about returning.
Well, in typical Caroline fashion, I got too excited about writing a travel related post and completely forgot to introduce myself!
So hey, nice to meet you!
I’ve been around the points and miles world for a while, so perhaps you’ve seen my name somewhere. I used to write a blog on Boarding Area called Point Princess, but I wanted to expand my blogging topics beyond points and miles, so I started an über creatively named site called Caroline Lupini.
Since then, I definitely haven’t slowed down on the points and miles writing, but I’ve also had some fun writing a few destination pieces too.
Overall, my goal is to travel as much as I can. I have the luxury of working online, so I spend about half of the year outside of the U.S. I’ve been to 70 countries so far, and I hope to one day visit them all. I really enjoy off-the-beaten-path destinations like Iraqi Kurdistan, Algeria, and Myanmar, and I’m super excited about my upcoming trip to Iran!
Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. I am very late to the Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card party, but I finally have that credit card after I Converted my Chase Freedom to a Chase Sapphire Reserve. I’ve been sitting on a bunch of Chase Ultimate Rewards Points and finally had my first opportunity to book a trip using my Chase Ultimate Rewards Points. To redeem your Chase Ultimate Rewards Points for 1.5 cents per point (CPP), log into your Chase online account and click the Go to Ultimate Rewards box.
