Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. I received this screenshot from a reader who participated in a Hyatt survey. For this survey, Hyatt wanted to know if you would redeem 450,000 Hyatt points for a 5 night South African safari package ($3,500 retail value per person). Personally, I do not have 450,000 Hyatt points or 450,000 Chase Ultimate Reward Points, so this option is totally out of my league, but let’s give this redemption a look. $3,500 / 450,000 points = 0.78 cents per point, which is pretty low for Hyatt points. Also, 450,000 Hyatt points could get you 15 nights at top tier category 7 hotels (30,000 Hyatt points per night) or 18 nights at category 6 hotels (25,000 Hyatt points per night). You could also get 90 nights at a budget category 1 hotel (only 5,000 Hyatt points per night).
So… what would you do if you were presented with this option?
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great weekend everyone!
