Hyatt is offering a 40% bonus when purchasing points to those that purchased points in 2014. Buying points outright is usually not a good deal, unless you need some extra points to top off your account for an award or the points purchase price is lower than what you would pay in cash for a room.

I was then able to use those points to reserve an award night at a property that was charging ~$335 per night! I’ll be sharing more about this in a future post.
