Easy way to search: Hyatt Cash and Points Group Code

One of the best ways to stay at expensive hyatt properties and make your points stretch is to use the Hyatt Cash and Points rates. They can be extremely laborious to search for individually. I was looking at hotels in San Francisco and one popped up with Cash and Points – I clicked through to the final booking page and noticed that the Corporate or Group code was listed 51440. Once you have this group code you can actually input that into your search query thus getting only results with Cash and Points availability.

Hyatt Cash and Points Group Code

Let’s look at how Hyatt Cash and Points can increase the value of your points.

There are three options for booking:

  1. Cash
  2. Hyatt Gold Passport Points
  3. Hyatt Cash + Points

Option 1 : Cash

The Grand Hyatt San Francisco was nearly $400/night when I searched. That’s a no go.

Option 2: Points

I could use 20000 outright and get $0.02/point. I wouldn’t pay any taxes and the room would be free of cost. At this valuation I’m kind of getting fair market value. I either have earned these Hyatt points through stays, or transferred over from Chase Ultimate rewards. Either way, I’m not losing money at this valuation. But, I like to be profitable when it comes to redemptions, i.e. get more than the fair market value.

Option 3: Cash + Points

Using Hyatt Cash + Points the rate is knocked down to 10000 + $146 – a discount of $254 from $400. This means that my 10000 points saved me $254 or $0.0254/point. In addition to this, I actually earn points not only off the $125,  but as a diamond, I earn an extra 1000 points at check in.

The net looks like this

  • Pay 10000 GP points and $146
  • Receive Stay credit
  • 6.5x $125= 812.5
  • check in bonus = 1000
  • Net is 8187.5 for $254 value = over $0.03

Historically 60k is a very, very good offer. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back. .

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on.

    Thanks for the helpful info. However, I don’t understand why you’d earn only 562.5 GP points for the $125. Why wouldn’t it be 812.5 as Diamond?

    • Miles October 9, 2016

      Carl – ahhhh complete typo and you’re right…should be 812.5. thanks for the heads up and reading!

    Kathy that’s been widely known for years on flyertalk and numerous non is based blogs.

  • On a historical note, I was actually the first of the bloggers to write about the Hyatt points and cash code having discovered it when I was researching hotel rates for a stay. http://willrunformiles.boardingarea.com/the-holy-grail-for-researching-hyatt-points-cash-availability/#sthash.OmkeSvJ2.dpbs

      sure, if you exclude the thread dating back to 2014 on FT etc…

  • PhatMiles July 26, 2016

    When buying C+P rates, pay the cash component with a Hyatt gift card bought at an office supply store with a 5X earning card. You can stretch your earn rate further more. GC resellers also carry Hyatt cards but there have been too many issues to trust.

    • Miles July 26, 2016

      great idea PhatMiles – I’d just like to point out that most gift cards aren’t valid for stays outside the US. Perhaps they are valid in Canada and Mexico, but I ran into trouble with this a couple years ago in China. Check the terms of the cards but certainly a good idea!
