Starting on October 26th, Hyatt will be changing the structure of its reward program to reflect the addition of Peak and off-peak pricing. Typically when hotels programs change their programs it is not a good thing. Hotels tend to go up in price per point so it’s important to lock in the lower rates now while you still can!

New Award Chart
The biggest changes for me are taking place in category 1 and category 7/8. I loved being able to find consistent value at 5,000 point Hyatt places which will be much harder to find now. On the other end, premium hotels in categories 7 and 8 will both go up 5,000 points respectively.
The same Peak/Off-Peak changes are taking place across the All-Inclusive properties (Ziva/Zilara/Miraval), suites, and points + cash. You can find those rates by clicking here.
Earn 30,000 World of Hyatt points once you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months from account opening. Plus, you can earn up to another 30,000 points with 2 points per $1 up to $15,000 spend within 6 months of opening the account
Hyatt Free Night Certificates
It’s important to note that the Hyatt Certificates will not be impacted by the Peak/Off-Peak pricing. This is awesome news when compared to Marriott that consistently prices hotels above the threshold for certificate redemption.
Last Day to Lock in Current Hyatt Rewards Rates
Time is running out! You’ve got until October 26th, 2021 to lock in the current Hyatt Rewards Rates.
I’d suggest locking in any tentative hotel bookings now given you could cancel and be refunded your points later. You can use this Hyatt Search Portal to look at hotels broken down by their category. Here is another list of some of the top Hyatt Properties in the world that you can book with points!
Are there any Hyatt properties you are going to lock in now?
