World of Hyatt has announced the integration of the Exhale Spa into its program. You can now earn and redeem your World of Hyatt points at participating Exhale locations worldwide.
Linking Your Accounts
To be able to earn and redeem your points, you will need to link your World of Hyatt and Exhale accounts. The process is simple, and all you need to do is sign in to both your accounts, before connecting your accounts.
Earning With Exhale
Earning World of Hyatt points at Exhale is restricted to participating locations as follows:
- Earn 10 Base points for every eligible dollar spent at participating Exhale locations
- Hyatt credit card members earn 3 Bonus points per eligible dollar spent
- World of Hyatt credit card members can earn 4 Bonus points per eligible dollar spent
Hyatt Elites also earn a bonus per dollar spent depending on their status:
- Discoverist earns a 10% bonus
- Explorist earns a 20% bonus
- Globalist earns a 30% bonus
Redeeming At Exhale
You can redeem your World of Hyatt points for facials, fitness classes, and massages, redemptions are at the following rates:
- Fitness Classes 2,000 points
- Facials 12,000 points
- Massage 12,000 points
Whether the redemption is good value or not ultimately depends on what other value you can leverage out of your Hyatt points. Looking at the Hyatt award chart, a category 1 hotel would set you back 5,000 points per night, and a category 3 hotel would set you back 12,000 points per night. Simply compare the cash price of the massage or facial you want, with the price of a night in a category 3 hotel or 2 nights in a category 1 hotel. You would then choose to spend your points on whichever costs more in cash to get the best value out of your points.
If you are looking at redeeming your points for fitness classes, the math gets a little more complicated. A category 2 hotel will set you back 8,000 points or the equivalent of 4 fitness classes. So, you will have to compare the cash cost of 4 fitness classes to one night in a category 2 hotel, and then spend your points on the one that costs the most.
Increasing the options on which you can spend your points is always welcome. However, as with everything in the points and miles world, you always have to crunch the numbers and see if the math makes sense for you. Remember if you have a substantial balance of World of Hyatt points that are about to expire, taking a fitness class and earning some points will stop your points from expiring.
