The deals for Week 5 seem to be the ones that everyone has been waiting for, most notably the Hyatt packages.

Other packages include deals from Hertz, Hilton, Fairmont, and some Las Vegas hotels.

As always, paying with an American Express card will get you a 10% discount.

Deals To Watch Out For

Hyatt Gold Passport Points

With the 10% discount, you end up buying Hyatt points for about 1 cent a point.

This is generally a great deal if you use the points for high end properties like Park Hyatts in Sydney, Paris, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, and the Maldives.

These properties cost 22,000 points per night so with this deal, you’d be paying about $220 per award night. Pretty amazing considering most of those Park Hyatts cost well over $500 a night!

I’ll definitely be trying for the Hyatt deals on July 11th.

Hilton HHonors Points

I bought these last year and I feel they were a good deal. Points ended up to be about half a penny per point.

We’ll be redeeming them at the Conrad Maldives way out in 2015, but that was before Hilton severely devalued the top end of their loyalty program.

With the old program, 8 nights at the Conrad Maldives cost about $1,500, but with this new program, the same award would costs over $3,700. No thanks!

Basically, I’d say to STAY AWAY from the Hilton points this year!
