We’re in the fifth and final week of Daily Getaways, which is an opportunity to purchase discounted hotel points and travel packages. Daily Getaways go live at 1PM ET every weekday, and the more popular packages sell out very quickly, so you’ll want to be fast, if interested.

Today at 1PM ET you’ll have the opportunity to purchase discounted World of Hyatt points. Let me say up front that this is probably the most popular Daily Getaways promotion, and it literally sells out in no time. So really this is more of a lottery than anything else. Even if you are on the website exactly at the second the promotion starts, you’re still likely to see all the packages are already sold out.

What Hyatt points packages are on sale?

The following Hyatt points packages are on sale today:

Number Of PointsPackage CostCost Per PointNumber Of Packages
24,000 World of Hyatt points$2601.08 cents/point120
30,000 World of Hyatt points$3301.1 cents/point54
40,000 World of Hyatt points$4151.04 cents/point30
72,000 World of Hyatt points$7751.08 cents/point25

You’re limited to purchasing one of each type of package, and points will be deposited into your World of Hyatt account within 10 business days.

The prices and types of packages available are identical to last year. As you can see, there are a total of 228 packages on sale, and points range in cost from 1.04-1.1 cents each. Personally I value World of Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each, so this is like buying them for just under a third off.

As a reminder, here’s Hyatt’s award chart:

As you can see, at a cost of 1.1 cents per point or less, this is an opportunity to purchase a night at Hyatt’s cheapest hotels for $55, or a night at their top tier Category 7 hotels for $330, both of which are great deals (Category 8 is reserved for select SLH properties).

While there’s obviously a lot of demand for these packages, the real problem is that people are using bots to buy these, so that’s why these often sell out right away. I don’t understand why Daily Getaways doesn’t add some sort of a CAPTCHA to prevent this.

I guess they don’t have much of an incentive to make sure these are bought fair and square, as long as they sell out. So if you do decide to buy one of these packages, definitely approach this as more of a lottery than an actual guaranteed way to buy Hyatt points at a good price.

Which credit card should you use for Daily Getaways?

In case you do decide to make a purchase, Daily Getaways purchases should be coded as travel, so you’ll want to use a credit card offering bonus points on travel.

Note that this includes the general “travel” category, rather than these purchases specifically being coded as hotel stays.

So consider one of the following cards:

  1. @Lucky, are you able to confirm that when we purchase any of these packages, that we are able to redeem it for a single night (instead of two)?

    Because it says this in terms and conditions when you want to buy 30K points:

    “45% savings on two (2) nights via 30,000 Bonus Points deposited into your World of Hyatt account.”

    “Package includes 30,000 Bonus Points that may be redeemed at participating Category 4 hotels.”

  2. How does this deal price compare with 40% bonus sales that Hyatt has from time to time?

  3. I believe they just put the points in your account. You can do anything you want with the points–6 nights in a cat 1, 1 night in a cat 7, use with all your other points for a longer stay, etc.

    Lucky, you should call up US Travel Assoc. and let them know we want them to block bots. Your words have weight. And they would totally sell out anyway.

  4. Every worthwhile deal has sold out instantly. The Hyatt deal cannot sell any faster than instantly.

  5. Note that today’s offerings restrict usage of the points to certain categories of hotel. In some cases category 4, in no case 6 or above.

  6. Site seems to have gone down at 1PM ET. Guess the traffic on this deal is enormous…

  7. I clicked on purchase right at 1:00 pm and got the message “sorry this inventory on hold for other customers while they complete their orde”

  8. sorry inventory on hold. Daily Getaway is a joke. No way you can really buy this. I was here at 1 on the dot.

  9. I got to where it says “buy now,” but when I click, nothing happens….they need better load balancing. Should use NGINX.

  10. I was also able to buy the 24,000 point package as well. Pressed F5 and had my mouse on the buy button.

  11. @Eskimo and others:

    I read the comments about server issues and I did not experience any of them.

    The first time I clicked, I got the “Sorry, this inventory is already on hold for other customers..” and I just kept clicking and eventually got one at 13:03.

    Last year I was unsuccessful and used a desktop computer. This time, I used my phone connected to wifi and data enabled.

  12. Got one 40000 package after I clicked around for several times nonstop and got it after a long time baby. Thx lucky

  13. I find the “lottery” style of these packages to be a joke.

    How many man hours/dollars does this waste people. I am not sure of your readership, but suppose 10,000 of your readers tried to get the packages and lined up on their computer just before 1pm and tried clicking for 15 minutes. Multiply that times say an easy number like $20 per hour and you have $50,000 wasted for one or two people who purchase.

    I for one would much rather see a sale like this for say 2 cents a points package. With all the hype it would still sell out in seconds even though at 2 cents it may not be a great deal. But that would probably at least let some of the people buy it in a couple of minutes. It is a stupid hype for something that is not attainable.

    I appreciate your blog because you blog about good uses of your time/points or money and give good advice. The daily getaways, is not one of those.

  14. @Maxine

    Thanks and congrats again.

    I think with the crash, bots lost their advantage. And few of us here scooped up the deal. Congrats

  15. I got one of 5ne 40k packages. It too, several tries, but I just kept clicking on the different package options and that’s the one I finally was successful with. Very happy to have scored this.

  16. Also, dont forget that if you happen to have the Chase/Hyatt credit card, you get points for your purchase too. So, you spend $260 bucks, that is a extra 260 points… unless it qualifies as a Hyatt purchase… then it might be either 3 or 4 points per $1 spent, depending on if you have the old or new card. It has been some time since I did one of these and I want to say it is treated like a Hyatt purchase…

    If that is true, that is a extra 1000 points on top of the 24k you just purchassed

  17. Congratulations to those of you who scored a package! I’m glad some fellow OMAATers were able to ‘make good.’ I gave it a try, but yielded after a solid two minutes.

  18. @Greg
    No one is forcing anyone to buy it so not sure your argument holds water. You can simply opt out of trying if you think trying for the lottery is not worthwhile.

  19. Irritatingly this time around I’ve found I can’t purchase any of their packages as I don’t have a US address

  20. @Greg

    Hypocrite??

    Do you use Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, or Tinder?

    There are around 2.38 billion ‘active’ FB users.

    Assume those active use “just” 15 mins a day, which is far far from reality.

    I’m not even going to assume $20 wage, I’ll go with just $1 ONE DOLLAR. That is already $600 million EVERYDAY LOST.

    If we use your $20 that would be almost $12 BILLION LOST PER DAY. That equals to The Bahamas GDP FOR THE WHOLE YEAR. Per year is also larger than Germany’s whole year GPD.

    Now for the sake of mankind, should we shutdown Facebook???

  21. Got one 40k package after clicking between the 40k and 72k like 40 times.

    Mind you this is the first time ever that I was successful getting a Hyatt points package in all these years.
