Hyatt has brought back a points sale that, if my memory serves me, was last seen back in April of this year. As Hyatt points sales go, this one isn't too bad and used correctly, has the potential to save World of Hyatt fans quite a bit of money.
The last time we noticed Hyatt adding more Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) to the World of Hyatt program was, unsurprisingly, before the pandemic brought the world to a standstill. Now, a recent announcement from Hyatt indicates that 12 more SLH properties were added to its loyalty program back in April (who knew?) and that a further 22 SLH properties/experiences were added just yesterday.
Hyatt and American Airlines have just announced that they're once again offering elite status challenges to members of each other's loyalty programs. From today, select AAdvantage and World of Hyatt members will be offered the chance to earn elite status in the other's loyalty program through January or February 2023. Challenges are targeted, require registration, and are appearing on dedicated American Airlines and Hyatt web pages.

Before yesterday, we hadn't seen a new transfer bonus from Chase since last year. As of right now, however, anyone wishing to transfer Ultimate Rewards Points over to their Bonvoy account can do so with a 50% bonus thrown in for good measure. The question is, just how good a deal is this?
In the current World of Hyatt promotion, members have been able to earn up to 2,500 bonus points for every 2 qualifying nights consumed during the promotion period and if we're being completely honest, it hasn't been one of the most exciting promotions we've seen. Now, however, with the current promotion coming to an end today, Hyatt has given us a look at when the next promotion will look like and it looks promising.
When the pandemic first started to take hold last year, Hyatt announced that the planned introduction of peak/off-peak award pricing that had been set to take place on 22 March 2020 was being postponed until 2021. Then, In October 2020, Hyatt confirmed that the new award pricing would go live from July 2021. Now, however, Hyatt has a change of heart and it has announced that the peak and off-peak award pricing will not be coming into effect this year.
Following a truly terrible sale back in April, IHG Rewards Club has now brought back its best-ever points sale in which it is offering members the opportunity to buy up to 500,000 points at a cost of just 0.5 cents per point. A key thing to note here is that despite the fact that IHG surprised members with an unpleasant devaluation earlier this year, this sale can still offer incredible value (as I show in this post).
Choice Privileges Rewards has launched a new sale in which it's offering members a 30% bonus when they purchase a minimum of 15,000 points. If you're a fan of Choice properties and you're low on points, this may be an opportunity to top up your account if the math makes sense for you.
Hyatt is reviving a good promotion that we've seen it offer a few times in the past but with the vaccine program going well in the US and the world starting to open up to travelers, it's worth noting that this year's promotion isn't as generous as the promotion we saw offered last year.
