Updated 4:07pm ET to add note about bonus promotion – see below.

In early April, we saw 7 AMR resorts (part of the Hyatt / AMR tie up) come online for booking with Hyatt points. These hotels include a range of all-inclusive resorts, some adults-only and some family friendly.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

It now seems that nearly all (there are exceptions) AMR-owned hotels in the Americas (not Europe) are bookable online with World of Hyatt points. HT to MilesTalk Group moderator Tim R. for spotting this. It seems that only Sunscape branded resorts are still not yet bookable.

At the Breathless Montego Bay Resort & Spa in Montego Bay, Jamaica, for example, you can book a premium suite that includes a hot tub on your terrace and direct pool access.

No doubt even better suites exist if you hunt around.

I don’t have a complete list of newly added hotels since Hyatt PR hasn’t yet communicated this, however, if you are looking anywhere in the Caribbean or Mexico, it’s a safe bet that your options just expanded significantly using Hyatt points (which is why I tend towards credit cards that earn Ultimate Rewards points since they can be transferred 1:1 to Hyatt as long as one of your cards is a Chase Sapphire Reserve or Sapphire Preferred or Chase Ink Preferred.

The best part about these is not just that we have more options in the Americas for Hyatt points, but also that they generally offer upgraded suites for points and also seem to allow the use of Globalist Suite Upgrade Awards.

Just in from Hyatt:

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
