Hyatt extends wife’s elite status by 3 months but I’m not thrilled

Earlier today my wife received an email from Hyatt stating that they were going to extend her Explorist elite status for 3 months beyond its set expiry.  Plus, if she completes 10 nights between March 1 and May 31, they’ll extend her status again through February 2019.  I don’t think she came anywhere near re-qualifying for Explorist with her 2017 stays, so on the surface this seems like a really nice offer.  Unfortunately, it mucks…

How to find Hyatt Points Plus Cash Deals

Early this week we reported that Hyatt has been discounting the cash portion of their Points + Cash awards at certain properties.  It’s not clear if there is rhyme or reason to this, but at the time of this writing the deal is still happening at a few locations (Extreme Hotel Deals has been keeping their list up to date).  Normally Hyatt’s Point + Cash prices are half the normal point cost for an award…

From $18 + 2500 points: Hyatt Cash & Points rates cut at some properties

EDIT: This Quick Deal appears to be expired for the US properties originally listed, although there are still properties in India that can be booked at the lower Cash & Points rates. Last night, Extreme Hotel Deals reported a great deal at some Hyatt properties, with Points + Cash rates displaying with reduced prices on the cash portion. I assumed this was likely an IT glitch and would be fixed (my past experience booking Points + Cash anomalies has…

Andaz 5th Ave: Redemption

The other day, I wrote a post about doing enough manufactured spending to earn the points necessary to live in New York City for a month (see: The cost to MS a month in New York City). I noted in that post that the plan was hatched while staring out at the skyscrapers from a room at the Andaz 5th Ave. Some readers may remember that I had a less-than-stellar stay there earlier this year…
