Booking with Hyatt Points + Cash allows you to book at half the regular points rate at the cost of (you guessed it) some cash. By booking this way you're effectively “buying” the points, you would have otherwise spent, which is a great way to keep some points in the bank. Thanks to information gleaned from Extreme Hotel Deals some hotels are even allowing you to save some of that cash making for some excellent P+C deals.

Though these are the only ones listed on Extreme Hotel Deals at the moment, it's a fair bet that there are more out there which will be added when found.  Bear in mind that there's no guarantee that these prices will be honored so don't be too quick to pack your bags.  If you DO book be sure to double check what you can expect to be billed.

Our Take

If you don't have many points but still want to score a few nights at a hotel this is a solid option; however, if you're the type to book using points exclusively it still may be worth considering spending some cash.

Remember to check EVEN IF your hotel isn't listed, especially since it'll only take a few seconds to do so. Take a look at the Hyatt Place Cleveland/Westlake/Crocker Park up on top. Normally you'd be paying $50 a night in cash using points + cash, but with this mysterious discount, you're only paying $17 a savings of $33 (66%) per night.

Even a higher category hotel like the Park Hyatt Chicago is discounted by $50 a night, taking a lot of the sting out of your parking or dining costs. Hold on to the cash if you want to, but if it's appealing we'd book soon – there's no telling how long it'll last.
