MilesTalk group moderator Sarah flagged to me a handful of great new options for booking resorts, even all-inclusive resorts, with World of Hyatt points as of today.

They are:

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

There may well be more – you can run some searches and see. You will note that if you search Cancun, it gives a much longer list as “NEW” but the remainder don’t seem to be bookable with World or Hyatt points yet.

This is all part of the Hyatt / AMR tie up announced several months ago.

Possibly the best part is that they seem to allow Globalist Suite Upgrade Awards (not sure if it’s just some or all). Here is an example.

I would 100% use a SUA on this suite!!

Overall, and I wish I had more time to play with this right now, these seem to be some solid redemptions where you can get 3 or 4 cents per point in value and go all-inclusive. This joins the Hyatt Ziva and Zilara brands as places to spend Hyatt points on all-inclusive vacations and like I always say – more redemption options are, well, more options 🙂

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 the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
