Here are today’s deals!
1. Use Your Hyatt Points for Experiences
Hyatt just announced it was launching FIND, a “gathering of special experiences” only available to World of Hyatt members. You can book these using Hyatt points at a value of ~1.4 cents per point.
The other interesting piece is that you can earn 10X Hyatt points per $1 when booking these experiences. So if you find an excursion that appeals to you, it could be a good way to earn bonus Hyatt points for an activity you plan on taking anyways!
Hyatt’s FIND program similar to Starwood’s SPG Moments, which in the past, has offered folks the opportunity to pay for experiences like tickets to the US Open and backstage concert passes using Starwood points.
You can check out the FIND site to see all of the neat adventures you could book using Hyatt points, including experiences like practicing yoga with a goat on your back, a cycling excursion through a winery in Napa, or a hands-on aerial photography session in a helicopter!
Personally, I prefer to use my Hyatt points for award nights. But this could be a nice way to redeem Hyatt points if you don’t have enough for an award stay.
2. Earn Bonus AMEX Membership Rewards Points With Hilton (Targeted)
Some folks are being targeted for an excellent AMEX Offer for spending at Hilton hotels. AMEX Offers are a fantastic way to save money on everyday purchases. They’re targeted statement credits or bonus points that only folks with American Express cards receive, for things like shopping, travel, and dining.
If you’re targeted for this particular offer, you can earn 22,500 AMEX Membership Rewards points after spending $750 with any Hilton branded hotel.
Here are the details:
- Stays must be completed by October 15, 2018, to qualify for the bonus
- You can meet the $750 spending requirement in more than one transaction
- Bonus points will credit to your account within 8 to 12 weeks
At a minimum, for example, AMEX Membership Rewards points are worth 1 cent a piece towards airfare when using AMEX Pay With Points. So this bonus is worth at least $225. And potentially even more if you transfer the bonus points you earn to any of the 19 AMEX airline and hotel partners to book award travel.
I was targeted through my Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN and plan to make the most of the offer during an upcoming trip to California!
