The fresh hotness out of BoardingArea is that Hyatt finally is allowing cash and points bookable online. I’ve been dreading this day because that only means less availability as more people take advantage of this great option.
Cash n points whether it be SPG or Hyatt is my go-to option because the math is usually in my favor. When SPG devalued, Cash n Points also dried up leaving the points dude with bad options for award redemptions.
The inconvenience, if it can be called that, of tweeting at Hyatt Concierge to make a booking was worthwhile versus reduced availability. Now Hyatt will start seeing an increase in award bookings which can only mean one thing– devaluation.
