Via Will Run For Miles, you can save a lot of time searching for available Points + Cash nights at Hyatt hotels

There’s a special Corporate Code that allows you to find all of the Hyatt hotels in a city or region that have available room nights using Hyatt Points + Cash.

Normally, you’d have to search individual hotels and dates.  So this is a real time-saver!

The Hyatt Points + Cash Trick Can Help You Find Available Rooms at Hotels Like the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome

Points + Cash can be useful for folks looking to save money or who do not have enough points for a free award night.

I’ll show you how to use this trick!

Depending on the cash price of a room, using Points + Cash can make sense if you want to save Hyatt points or do not want to pay full price for a hotel room.

Points + Cash nights require half the number of Hyatt points needed for a regular award night plus a fixed amount of cash depending on the hotel category.

Save Big at Hyatt Hotels Using Points + Cash With Rooms Starting at $50 Plus 2,500 Hyatt Points

Points + Cash rooms, unlike regular award night redemptions, are subject to availability.  This means you might be able to redeem a full award night while Points + Cash rooms are not available such as during busy travel times.  

Points + Cash stays count toward elite stay credits.  You also earn Hyatt points on the cash portion of a Points + Cash redemption, unlike award stays which don’t earn points.

And if you have Diamond status, you can use your suite upgrades during a Points + Cash stay.

Hyatt hotels include AndazGrand Hyatt HyattHyatt HouseHyatt PlaceHyatt RegencyHyatt Zilara and Hyatt Ziva (all inclusive), and Park Hyatt.

What’s the Trick?

Finding available Points + Cash rooms at Hyatt used to take time because you had to check each hotel individually.

Now you can enter “51440” in the Corporate or Group Code field to find all available Points + Cash hotels in a city or region.

Enter Code “51440” to See Available Points + Cash Hotels

An Example – Finding a Los Angeles Hyatt in June

For example, I searched for available Points + Cash rooms in the Los Angeles area using the Corporate code “51440” and sorted the results by price.

The results show prices of $55 and $75 per night.  This matches the fixed cash amount needed for the Points + Cash option for Hyatt category 2 and 3 hotels.  The list also shows hotels in the area at regular rates meaning Points + Cash rooms are not available.

I clicked on the category 3 Hyatt House Los Angeles/El Segundo to see if Points + Cash rooms were actually available.

Success! There Are Points + Cash Rooms Available

But is this a good deal?

If you look at the regular cash rate for the night in June, the cost with taxes is ~$210.  So using Points + Cash would save ~$135 off the regular rate. (~$210 cash cost of room – $75 Points + Cash fixed charge).  Note that fees and taxes apply to the cash portion of Points + Cash reservations so savings can vary.

Regular Room Rates Are ~$210 for a Night in June

You could also use 12,000 Hyatt points and redeem a regular award night.  But you wouldn’t earn points or stay credits. 

Let’s look at another location.

Points + Cash at the Park Hyatt New York

I used the same Points + Cash search trick to see if rooms were available at the category 7 Park Hyatt New York.

Sure enough, I found a room in June 2016 for 15,000 Hyatt points + $300.

The Points + Cash Search Trick Showed Available Rooms at Park Hyatt New York for 15,000 Hyatt Points + $300

The same night in June would cost ~$925.  Or I could redeem 30,000 Hyatt points for a regular award night.  That’s a lot of Hyatt points!

By using Points + Cash, I’d save ~$625 in actual cash by using the Points + Cash options (~$925 cash cost of room – $300 for Points + Cash charges).

There are plenty of ways to earn Hyatt points:

Bottom Line

There’s a trick to easily find available Hyatt Points + Cash hotels by using special corporate code “51440” online.

Points + Cash can make sense if you want to save Hyatt points or do not want to pay full price for a hotel room.  You’ll also earn elite stay credits and can use a suite upgrade if you have Diamond elite status.

This trick saves time because normally, you’d have to search each hotel individually for Points + Cash rooms.

And if you need more Hyatt points, remember there are lots of ways to earn them!

@Lisa…. just tried the code trick and it still works for me. Perhaps you were placing the code in the “special offer” box rather than the “corporate code” box.

Nice post Daraius…. Hyatt should pay you for this gem…. Alas, Hyatt’s web site remains the worst of all hotel web sites anywhere for wasting time…. even with simple things like making a reservation. (It WAS great news when Hyatt, after years of our complaints, got off its duff and made points & cash rates available on their web site…. but oh my, how they make it sooooooo ponderous, so time consuming to find out who has them, when they’re available, etc.

Beechy, Nope, in my experience, P&C rates are not available at the Hyatt All inclusive resorts. (and it remains a supreme pain in the neck with hyatt to find out award availability for those places. You have to call, and call, and call…. what a waste of everyone’s time and resources….)

To be clear, I DO much like Hyatt hotels themselves, and the point redemption rates are often quite good…. but the MISERABLE web site continues to leave a very, very bad impression of the…. who still run their corporate IT into the ground. (It seems the more criticisms they get, the more they shut it down for repairs, the worse it gets)

I tried doing using that code but I get a message saying it isn’t a valid code number.

Hi,

I just want to check : are Points & Cash available at the all inclusive resorts ? I seem to remember they were not, but hoping that might have changed 😉

Thanks for the tips !!
